Key Findings

Waste upcycling technologies may have applications in various industries such as, chemicals, metals, food processing, textile, paper and pulp, sugar, leather, glass, petrochemical, polymer and so on.
It is expected that by 2018 waste upcycling technologies will be adopted at mass-scale globally.
In North America (NA) and Europe (EU), intense waste upcycling activities can be witnessed presently. The movements are mainly initiated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and European Commission. Waste upcycling activities in Asian countries have just started picking up and the pace is expected to match the NA and EU regions by 2018.
Heavy funding and incentives are provided for waste upcycling technology development and implementation in the NA and EU regions by government authorities.
The most number of patents are filed in China and USA followed by Japan. This indicates that Asian countries are not behind compared to the NA and EU countries. Adequate funding and support can help the implementation of upcycling technologies at commercial scale effectively.
Waste-to-energy technologies show immense potential to address the global energy depletion problem while ensuring a sustainable future.

Technology Overview

•Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials into new products of higher value or better quality, or of better environmental value. Unlike the conventional recycling, which merely prolongs the lifespan of waste materials by extending their use, upcycling moves waste materials up the supply chain. This eliminates the use of virgin stock and reduces waste.
•The major and important waste upcycling technologies include pyrolysis, waste gasification, plasma gasification, anaerobic digestion, and so on. Recycling of waste materials to something of a higher value is also considered as upcycling.
•Upcycling can be adopted for various important applications such as, generating energy from waste in the form of diesel, electricity or heat, regenerating important and expensive chemicals from chemical wastes, converting plastic wastes into high-grade plastic, glass recycling and so on.
•The major advantages achieved through the processes of waste upcycling are environmentally sustainable waste management, significant waste minimization, regeneration of valuable materials and products, energy-efficient and economical waste treatment, reduction in effort and cost for waste disposal, generating revenue from wastes and so on.
•Waste upcycling methods can be adopted in various industries such as, chemical, metal, food processing, textile, paper and pulp, sugar, leather, glass, petrochemical, polymer and so on.
•In North America and Europe, waste upcycling technologies have rapidly gained attractiveness but in Asia, it took some time for upcycling technologies to be accepted and adopted at commercial scale. However, Asian countries are also witnessing rapid advancement in this segment.
