On Episode No. 2 of The Rise of the Ecopreneur we speak with Carlos Ludlow-Palafox from Enval. Enval unhitches the potential of high-performance materials through generating sustainable and economically viable end‑of‑life solutions. Our microwave-induced pyrolysis process is the only method for recycling plastic aluminum laminates. Carlos details how he turned his project at Cambridge from a lab experiment to a full-blown business. He discusses the difficulties in developing such a process due to the lack of corporate and political support.
