PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) April 29, 2019
We all have that container of random leftovers sitting in the back of our fridge. Not totally sure how old it is, or even what’s inside, most of us just see it, sigh heavily, and throw the container away...good food wasted. It’s second-nature to do that because most of us think even the container can’t be saved because it’s made of Polystyrene which, to many, falls into the “can’t be recycled” category.
Until now. And bonus: there are robots involved. This season, field reporter Jackie Long will visit AmSty in California to learn that it is, in fact, possible to recycle Polystyrene. During her field work, she learns that Amsty uses robots and AI to sort through trash and create what they refer to as PolyUsable products.
“We are very excited to tell the story of PolyUsable chemical recycling on TWT. The existing recycling system needs a complete overhaul, and we’re excited to share what AmSty and Agilyx are doing to change that,” said Jon Timbers, Director of Innovation and Sustainability for AmSty. “The plastics recycling program we are using today could change the way everyone recycles tomorrow.”
Tomorrow’s World Today, which was nominated for a 2019 Daytime Emmy, returns to Science Channel for season two beginning Saturday, May 4. Viewers can tune in on Saturday and Sunday mornings for five weeks to watch back-to-back new episodes.
