Li-Cycle Stock: A Risky Play on Lithium Battery Recycling

Scarcity is the name of the latest game toying with the global economy. It’s why people are sawing off catalytic converters from the underbelly of vehicles and why Britons are stuck in long lines waiting to fill up their cars with petrol (as they say in merry old England). But the biggest headline in the […]

The Best Pure Play Carbon Capture Stock

If you’re looking for a carbon capture stock, you might pitch your tent in one of two camps. The first camp believes that reducing carbon will save the planet, and therefore we must pursue this mission at all costs, profits be damned. The second camp believes that because so much money is being thrown at […]

AMP Robotics Amped Over AI-Powered Recycling Robots

We recently wrote about the nascent and unprofitable carbon capture market – and suddenly it seemed like everyone was talking about how we need new, scalable technologies for removing and recycling CO2 into everything from energy to cement. It didn’t hurt that Mr. Elon Musk happened to announce the same day that he was putting […]

When Will Carbon Capture Tech Become Economically Viable?

The first day at a new job is usually uneventful. There are HR policies to sign and disregard, break rooms to explore, and hours to wait while the Help Desk tries to get you signed into the system. So it was with some surprise that we learned that the head of the new U.S. administration […]

6 Sustainable Materials Made from Microalgae and Seaweed

One thing about emerging technologies is that you never know when – or if – they will finally fulfill their promise or fall flat. Take the miracle material graphene. Thin, light, and hard as a diamond, graphene was supposed to revolutionize how we build everything in the future. Not so much. We’ve written about 30 […]

Should You Invest in Recycling Vending Machines?

Earlier this year, we introduced you to Loop Industries (LOOP), a publicly traded U.S. company that is a pure-play for investing in recycled plastics. Specifically, Loop has developed a process for upcycling waste plastic and polyester fiber into high-purity, food-grade polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the same material used in the plastic water bottles and other packaging […]

A Stock for Investing in Recycled Plastics

When panic ensues in the financial markets, financial services firms are quick to reach out and assure their clients that they have everything under control. Cancels affect run rates, and clients need to know that all those tools they’re paying exorbitant amounts of money for will work in bear markets as well as bull markets. […]

8 Israeli Waste and Recycling Startups

While Silicon Valley is synonymous with innovation, the lesser-known Silicon Wadi is perhaps more impressive. In Arabic, “wadi” means valley, so it’s a fitting way to describe the high concentration of technology companies on the coastal plain of Israel. For a country with just over 8.7 million people (that’s about the same size as New Yawk City), Israel […]

9 Green Packaging Solutions for Reducing Plastic Waste

They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. There are about 7.7 billion of us consuming our faces off, so if there’s a heap of gold somewhere, we haven’t found it. What we have found are giant swirling patches of garbage in the Pacific Ocean and microplastics throughout the food web – and in […]

A Waste-to-Energy Stock for Investors

If Hollywood has taught us anything, it’s that in the future you can use garbage to power your time-traveling DeLorean sports car. But we’re still stuck with the realities of today’s technologies when it comes to dealing with waste. In the United States alone, each person generates nearly 4.5 pounds of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) […]
