Waste management is a study of science for finding innovative and sustainable methods to get rid of wastages produced by us(i.e,Human beings).
Wealth means, valuable in possessions,waste means worthless.To know about plastic:from waste to wealth we should know what is a plastic? “Plastics”is the term commonly used to describe wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that are used in a huge and growing range of application.The raw material used to produce plastics are coal,salt,crude oil, cellulose, natural gases which goes under polymerisation process.
So from the above terms we can understand that wastages also has wealth.It is a recycling initiative that works towards spreading awareness about recycling,and encouring people to segregate & dispose waste responsibly.
“use three R principle:REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE”
They help conserve valueable natural resources and energy and also lower environment damage caused by socio-economic development.
It’s possible to convert all plastics directly into usefull forms of energy and chemicals for industry using a process called”cold plasma pyrolysis”it is an heating method which decomposes the organic materials,in an environment with limited oxygen.
There are many uses of waste plastics by recycling and reusing it.for ex:in a series of lab experiments, researchers successfully converted plastic into formic acid-a chemical that can be useful to generate electricity in power plants and electric cars. Since plastics are made from crude oil. Gasification involves when heating the plastic with air or stream process,to produce a valuable industrial gas mixtures called”synthetic gas”in which this can be used to produce diesel and petrol,or burn directly into the boilers to generate electricity.
“To convert waste as wealth don’t convert wealth as waste.”
