The world’s first plastic neutral nation

Australian technology donated to a Southeast Asian nation aims to recycle 20,000 tonnes of plastic each year. Timor-Leste is a target for ocean plastics, and much washes up on their pristine beaches. The country will get a new $60 million recycling plant, with work due to start next year. The plant will help process all their plastic waste and the government is aiming for it to become the world’s first plastic neutral nation. Plastic neutral means no used plastics will enter the environment as waste, and will instead be recycled into new products.
