This Fact Sheet exhibits an inspired approach to plastics removal and reuse. The Waterborne Plastics Assessment and Collection Technologies (WaterPACT) project is working to develop technology solutions for plastics in U.S. waterways, creating jobs, reclaiming plastics for the supply chain, improving human health, and protecting our precious marine and riverine ecosystems—all while being fueled by clean, renewable water power technologies.  WaterPACT is a collaborative project with National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the Bio-Optimized Technologies to keep Thermoplastics out of Landfills and the Environment (BOTTLE™) Consortium, and the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.
