Revolution Plastics Institute

Address


The Revolution Plastics Institute at the University of Portsmouth aims to urgently confront the global plastics crisis through inclusive, solutions-focused research and innovation to support the transition to a sustainable plastics future.

Our planet is suffocating in plastic. Some plastics take more than 400 years to break down, and around 11 million metric tons of plastic ends up in our oceans every year. Half of all plastic becomes waste within a year of being made, yet most isn’t recycled. We need radical action to halt this trend and limit the damaging consequences of plastic pollution on our health and the environment.
