A workshop focusing on ways to produce clean fuel from plastic waste has opened on Tuesday in Kuwait City.
The workshop was jointly held by Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR), and the U.K. Science and Innovation Network.
The Director-General of KISR, Samira Omar, said that the aim of the workshop was to exchange experiences on how to generate clean fuel from solid waste as well as using it as a useful material.
According to Omar, the workshop is expected to help reduce the accumulation of plastic waste, stressing that the institute is keen to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG), of Kuwait.
