TEL AVIV, Israel , September 6, 2022 (press release) –


UBQ’s waste-based thermoplastic offers the industry a secure source of recycled-content feedstock

UBQ Materials, climate tech developer of advanced materials made from unsorted waste, including all organics, announced today that its UBQ™ Powder has received the UL Environmental Claim Validation for containing a minimum of 100 percent post-consumer recycled content.

UL, a global safety science leader, holds companies accountable to sustainability claims through independent and objective assessment using its rigorous science-based approach. The UL 2809 certification confirms that UBQ™ Powder is composed entirely of post-consumer recycled content. Companies and manufacturers can substitute oil-based resins with UBQ™ to maximize post-consumer recycled content in products.

European plastics industry groups have aligned themselves with the policy proposal from the European Commission to meet mandatory minimum of 30% recycled content in plastic packaging by 2030.

“In light of regulations and taxations, global corporations are running against the clock to assess and implement solutions to fulfill ambitious ESG commitments. There is an urgent and growing demand for quality post-consumer recycled content materials that support these goals,” said Albert Douer, Chairman and Co-CEO of UBQ Materials. “Utilizing unsorted household waste, an abundant and globally available resource, we have a scalable and cost-competitive material that we can confidently supply to the industry today.”

Patented worldwide, UBQ™️ is a climate-positive and bio-based thermoplastic that integrates seamlessly in standard manufacturing processes. UBQ Materials empowers leading brands, including Mercedes-Benz, PepsiCo, and McDonald’s, to reduce the carbon footprint of their end products, maximize recycled content, and preserve finite resources without compromising on profitability.

UBQ Materials is on track to expand globally with a large-scale production facility in the Netherlands.
