1808 Advanced recycling

HB 1808 called advanced recycling, but it’s just burning plastic

The name/language of the bill is confusing…it’s not making recycling more “advanced”…it’s negatively affecting our air quality.

Instead of encouraging the use of clean and renewable energy, House Bill 1808 would encourage turning plastics into products like jet fuel and crude oil, all under the guise of “recycling.” 

In addition, this bill is likely to result in the burning of plastic waste instead of recycling it, while it will also increase emissions and pollution that exacerbate the ongoing climate crisis.
