Titre original : New Technologies for Preventing Plastic Pollution
Non-biodegradable plastic waste is polluting the environment and becoming an ever-increasing problem. In this segment, we will introduce 2 companies that are attempting to make a business out of dealing with this issue. One company has developed the ability to recycle PET bottles and create new ones of almost the same quality as a brand-new bottle. Since impurities are removed during the recycling process, beverage companies have already started using them. The other company, develops products made out of alternative materials. It is attracting attention for some products which are made mostly out of limestone. Not only were they able to drastically reduce the amount of oil used in the production process, their products are both durable and reusable.

As a result, many citizens have no insurance policies and this has caught the attention of insurers. The firms are now waiting for an announcement they hope will allow foreign capital to make inroads into Myanmar's insurance market.
