      This would mean that we have no waste at all and this is basically the aim of many countries nowadays.

      We see already a drastic change in the energy market during the past decades (solar and wind energy, biomass energy, hydropower etc). The same applies to many research projects today. Recycling and sustainability are very important.

      I assume a renewable world is possible but it would need a major overthinking from everyone where sustainability is more important than comfort and money.

      Yes, but there’s lots of science and engineering to do before this is possible.
