clues are designed to be one for a long time. after that intelligence solutions can ensure that recycled for maximum benefit. the transition to this mentality is slowly getting underway. now, in the concept of circular economy, there's a very tiny amount of ways, if at all, one organization in the northeastern state of sam is imbibing the values of this concept in a unique week by making paper from ryan or down. let's find out how i this material has a very special structure and each sheet its own unique composition. it's used to make lampshades, notepads, and even clocks for a global clientele. the paper manufactured by the woman in the small workshop in a song is chiefly comprised of rhino and elephant droppings. a notion that may have some turning their nose up. but this done is actually ideal for making paper. as entrepreneur neesha explains. 2 some of people making point of view,
2:46 pm
these are the 2 and the most was done is the most fibrous. they eat long grasses, they have what these animals have a weak digestive process. so when different case the fiber is available to us to just boil and basically get the fiber, the falcon all go, unlike a lot of other animals, they would, they just said there would be not enough fiber. which is why you work with the 5 of the animals besides the fact that they're from bonnie kelly and functionally good from a paper point of view, they are invaluable. and there's no shortage of dung in these parts. the woodlands of the state of assault are home to around $2400.00 trials and at least twice that number of elephants per town territory for an innovative concept. recycling by left excrement to make paper was in fact an idea born out of necessity . animals and people live in close proximity here. the route villages and farms are
2:47 pm
increasing the interesting on the habitat of local bye life. not to mention the sprawling plantations growing to famous a santee. many of the animals live in the protected natural parts. and when seasonal rainfall causes the river to flood twice a year, there is an additional problem. yeah, my car over here is our village more bought on man, just over there, less than one kilometer is the park. there are a lot of wild animals living there that i know so deliverance diagram. and what about a lower month when that even birds bang the animal know they are in danger and end up roaming to our village and vice seeking refute. they also look for food rice harvests here. i regularly devastated by rhinos and telephone more than the whole robot. i grew up near me,
2:48 pm
we would always find the animals on the street. everyone would take money home with during the rainy season they would come and forage for food in our farm lands. and when we woke up, they will be out in the field. so by the one you have to meet daily, the whole idea for employing local villagers to turn dung into paper came from nisha father, the retired coal mining engineer, one to give something back to nature. and that undertaking has been a boon for local communities, creating new livelihoods where most people had no regular jobs. among them is my job because i wanted to know what i now planned to save up and by attractive for our farm. we have to pay a lot of money to hire tractors, to feel our land elected. i want to buy one off our own on the
2:49 pm
soldiers. dung is combined with natural fibers source from farm waste, such as jude food peel and cotton. the resulting product, therefore, also better for the environment than regular paper. people making is lucy, one of the most water intensive industries in the world and is responsible for a lot of what we see. a lot of work goes on around this. we use a we don't use that kind of water would be also the worker that we use because it has no chemical. and if we just use a basic filtration process and get back into that because we also recycling on what is the past year, was a tough one for the company as demand committed to, to the corona virus pandemic. over the next 2 years, they're planning to break down production into smaller units to enable their team to work from home. the enterprise has provided a welcome source of jobs,
2:50 pm
plus each ton of the company's product saves $27.00 trees from being failed to make conventional paper and with the rhinos providing the paper manufacturers with the raw material relations between the villagers and the animal neighbors have also improved, ah, now one place you can find a lot of in a way the ideas about circular economy is the dutch capital. i'm to them, scientists and entrepreneurs have been looking for ways to deal with the fifty's, plastic and waste water problems. let's take a look. the dutch capital amsterdam is aiming to create a stock killer economy by 2050. that involves curtailing the use of new raw materials avoiding waste and reusing as much as possible that by slashing emissions . the city sanitation, department fishes, $42.00 tons of floating plastic trash out of the canals every year. a lot more
2:51 pm
probably gets through we know that around 2 thirds of all the plastic in the ocean actually travel via reverse to the ocean. quite some trust that you see on the street, or that is, is their ends up in this reverse. and then of course the rivers flow toward the sea . so it's one of going to transport magnets the mechanisms of plastic pollution. and that's why we would really like to stop it there. i'm in the re, abilene's is behind a start up the great bubble barrier and it's innovative technology. here's how it works. a tube is laid across the bed of a waterway. air is pumped down to polls along it. the bubbles dr. trash in the water to the surface towards the bank and into a receptacle. tests have shown this on average, 86 percent of trash in the water can be collected in this way.
2:52 pm
the garbage, the ends up in the container is removed 3 times a week. so now only one bubble barrier has been installed in amsterdam. it's a pilot project, but the potential both in the city and worldwide is enormous. i have multiple sector have interest in this. for example, you can imagine that companies that have a benefit of tourists coming by, they want of beaches that are came ones. riverside that are clean at one time. there is where you can fit on nicely. and on the moment you install such such a system, you can, you can make it clean and make sure that it looks nice to visit again. the phone has received financial support from the government. it's also working on ways to recycle all the collect trash cities also generate lots of waste water as unlikely as it might seem. the water flushed down on toilets contains valuable resources
2:53 pm
that could be retrieved. scientists in the netherlands have developed a new waste water purification system to do just that one of the end product to the gum, they call co mera, which has many applications as a clue or binding agent in the manufacturing and construction industries. also have a circular society to insurance cycle, all our waste streams and waste water is, is very important re streams. and now what happens is that the, for in the end for june, bio gas with it with bio guess is relatively low value application. and that producing discovery is do we can use this new for high value applications. so what we want to do in the end, the bulk of produce high failure building a serial for the city using wastewater from a certain standard industrial please. i'm a true oil, which is not good for the environment. in the new process, bacteria purify the waste water cameras assigned benefit
2:54 pm
a single plant can produce up to 800 tons of s a. yeah. in this lab, research is working on new biodegradable materials. they mix camaro with recycled toilet paper and various combinations of peach. pitts and almond and pistachio shells. they saw they've made great signs and developed architectural closing material made out of 80 percent organic materials. more r and d is needed before this new compet based on comb, error and toilet paper can come to market prospects look good. for instance, tropical hard watch, that's beatable by this material and also elimination and elimination. it's a huge markets, that aluminum has a very, very high c o 2 footprints. and a good thing of this material is you can beat it's all mechanical properties. and c
2:55 pm
o 2 properties, you'll beat it anyway. so then the price will be the challenge and i think the upcoming 10 years, we will try to replace elimination by this company or accomplish the material, recycling and up slightly organic waste and construction waste could be a money spent and would certainly be good for the environment saddam's been known as a great place for emissions for recycling, for decades. it's still a long way from achieving a stock killer economy. the plan is to make that happen by 2050 and i'm vicious goal for a city determined to be a pioneer. we have only one and we need to do all that. we can to protect it from becoming a jain spirit of ways. i hope you had many take away from our show on circular economy to be an important solution to a saving our planet. i'll see, we'll get next week with many more solutions until then from all of us and india
