plastic waste management
Explain your idea in details:
In the last century, mankind has seen many innovations amongst them is the plastics we acknowledge and use today in our regular life. These plastics are found in every household, every country either developed or developing and are independent of our economic situation. But there is a darker side to these commodities. The most significant is; they are adding to the pollution we as humans are creating in this clean world.100million tones of plastic wastes produced per year and Pakistan produces 14% of the total world's plastic waste. Plastic, a product that remains non-biodegradable up to 400 years can be used in a beneficial way. By recycling plastics into such products that do not cause any harmful effects in the environment and also gives economical profit to us.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Though humankind has arisen to this threat and replied with developments in creating degradable bioplastics, there is still no ultimate effort done to improve the loss already created. In this concern, the catalytic pyrolysis presents an efficient, clean and very efficient means of extracting the debris that we have left behind over the last several decades. By transforming plastics to fuel, we solve two problems, one of the great plastic seas, and the other of the fuel deficiency. This coupled advantage though will survive only as long as the waste plastics last, but will surely provide a strong platform for us to build on a sustainable, clean and green future. By taking into account the financial benefits of such a project, it would be a great benefit to our prosperity.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Plastic recycling machine is needed to recycle plastic into small plastic pellets then these pellets are used to make plastic roof and floor tiles and also used to make plastic bricks. These products are antibacterial, antimicrobial and antistatic. Plastic is used to construct polymer coated bitumen road. Plastic is also used to generate electricity, produce gasoline and fuel by a plastic recycling plant. Plastic is the cheaper resource of producing energy and helps in reducing the demand and supply gap of energy in Pakistan in the future.
