Week#5 of 2019 - We are still in January my friends. I know it feels like this month is lasting forever. That's ok, because every second counts when working on novel innovations and leading change. The news stories below are provided to help stimulate dialogue with your work colleagues, and to open our minds to the exciting world of innovation. Sustainability is one of our core platforms. Sustainability offers some of the most exciting and challenging opportunities for innovation, it is an inspirational goal, and it unites us as a global community. In the news this week my top pick is the video of the 3D printing being done at UoM. In packaging sustainability, the developments in PHA show a lot of hope. We have personal experience working with those materials and understand the challenges. This week we are also receiving news from Malaysia to indicate the plastic's recycling supply chain is further constricting with new import bans. ReThink Waste is increasingly becoming a very localized opportunity for innovation. Make it a great week and send us an e-mail if we can be of further assistance.
