Best Ideas 2019 features all the nominated entries submitted under ‘Submit your Idea’ category. All the entries consist of innovative solutions or propositions for an enterprise that champions the Sustainable Development Goals. They can be on the conceptual, planning, or start-up stage.
TURNING WASTE PLASTICS INTO FUEL ENERGY
Explain your idea in details:
Turning plastic waste into fuel energy is important because not all plastic waste can be recycled and all plastic at the end of their life cycle they are no longer recyclable, Turning plastic waste into fuel energy milestone is to solve the problem of plastic polution to our enviroment and ocean as well as to eliminate improper ways of disposing plastic wastes like landfill and burning which is dangerous to the present and future generation, The idea involves formulation of systematic approach for plastic waste collection from industries and and consumers to make sure that there is no single plastic waste go for landfill or to ocean, establishing proper plastic collection center and teams to monitor and ensure plastic collection is effective, The pyrolysis technology is the one which we will use to convert plastic waste into fuel energy.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Effective implementation of this idea will result into plastic free enviroment as well as creating cheap and reliable energy for domestic and industrial use, also it will create employment opprtunities to people who will be involved in the implementation and operation of the project, 1 year after effective implementation of the project, enviromental assessment and energy consumption analysis will be done to measure the successful attainment of the objectives, this idea will implement one of the key sustainable development goal of sustainable cities and communities which focus to reduce the adverse per capital enviromental impact of cities by paying special attention to air quality and other waste management including plastic waste.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The ideal will be implemented on below model The process designing and manufacturing procedures The plant for converting waste plastic into fuel energy will be situated in Dar es salaam Tanzania, which is the largest plastic waste producer, all the plastic waste across 5 East African countries will be collected and brought to the processing plant for conversion, Pyrolysis technology is the one we will use to convert the plastic waste into fuel energy, heating plastic in a vacuum or closed chamber at 350-400 Centigrade ( in absence of oxygen) it turns plastic polymer into de-polymer and produce diesel,kerosine,char and gas, in the implementation of this idea we will patner with needa green energy for pyrolysis processes and we expect financial assistance from deferent financial and non financial institutions
I am Avity Ngawe from Tanzania aged 25 years old, i hold a bachelor degree in production and operations management from Mzumbe University, i am a packaging proffesional working with packaging industries for three years now, working in quality assurance department i deal with plastics and metal on my daily activities, i have a deep understanding of polymer science and i have focus my entire carrier to solve plastic waste challenges so as to make it a better packaging solution and not an enviromental threat.
