The New Economy and the Reinvention of Waste

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Jan. 8, 2016) - When it comes to waste, we've tried recycling, we've tried reducing, but neither approach has been enough to significantly reduce our carbon footprint. As governments and businesses around the world turn their attentions to the climate question, waste has been positioned as the defining challenge of our time. The latest issue of The New Economy looks at reinventing waste and explores some of the more novel approaches.

"We are now in desperate need of smarter ways to lessen humanity's environmental impact, particularly as expanding populations drain the planet's resources," according to The New Economy report. "Both private companies and state organisations are starting to think outside the box and explore the countless ways they can use the waste they produce to their advantage."

David Hitchcock, Senior Vice President of Harvest Power, a leading start-up that turns organic waste into fuel, calls food waste "the next frontier," and many are in agreement that the concept of zero waste will change the world for the better. For an insight into the latest developments and a look at what companies are doing to reinvent waste, pick up the latest issue of The New Economy.

Also in the latest issue we take a look at the wave of decentralisation threatening to break up the energy grid, the move to clean fuel in the cruise industry and the agenda at this year's WEF Annual Summit in Davos.

These features, together with the latest stories in technology, energy, business and strategy round out the latest issue of The New Economy. Read the magazine in full either online, on mobile or in print now.
