New York University Abu Dhabi’s Plastic Recycling Research Lab (aka the Plastic Lab, website: www.plastic.international) is an interdisciplinary research lab with a focus on getting and sharing a holistic view onto global issues that relate to plastic and plastic recycling. The Plastic Lab was inaugurated in December 2018 by Felix Beck. He leads the team of dedicated researchers, student research assistants, and community members to work on answers, and develop solutions towards questions such as:

Why plastic? How is plastic produced? How is it used in the market? What are the lifespans of the different types? What are processes of waste collection and processing? What are the short-, mid-, and long-term impacts of plastic waste to the environment? What does plastic recycling mean for todays society? How can recycled plastic be up-cycled into new products? How can the perception of plastic be changed in order to see it as a more precious material instead of a one-time use only material?
