Plastic is a non-degradable waste,causes green house effect and global warming.A material that contain one or more organic polymer of large molecular Weight ,solid in its finished state can be shaped by its flow .The major threat to the environment is the disposal of waste plastic.The various experiments have been carried out whether the waste plastic can reused productively.
FROM WASTE TO WEALTH:
The various literature indicated that the waste plastic when added to hot aggregates will form a fine coat of plastic over the aggregate and such aggregate when mixed with binder is found to have higher strength and higher resistance and better performance over a period of time.Along with bitumen,use waste plastic increases its life and smoothness.It is economically and eco-friendly.Additon of plastic waste in construction of pavements reduces the plastic shrinkage and drying shrinkage.The use of waste plastic improve the abrasion & slip resistance of asphalt pavement.In India because of hot and extremely humid climate,plastic pavements of greatest advantages. In others word we can say that waste is wealth wheb managed well,however ,proper waste management along the generation chain requires action by everybody at different levels including household,community,national and international to take up their roles responsibilities and obligations to contribute to sustainable positive impact on community livelihood and deliver the fundamental human rights to a clean and healthy environment.
WHAT SHOULD WE DO:
■ Research on integerated waste management to come up with appropriate technologies that are effective and eco-friendly.
■The Principle of recycling
■ organising awarness program per month as a camp where people knows the effect of plastic in our surrounding.
■Also Taking Help with journalism ,news channels.
■Sorting and reusing the waste.
■ less use of polythene,packaging polythine
Problems with waste are as old as the human race. Generation of waste causes a loss of
materials and energy. It increases environmental costs on society for its collection, treatment
and disposal. Every stage in the life cycle of a product – from its initial creation to its final
disposal – can create waste and environmental residuals. The 5Rs Principle offers a sustainable,
environment friendly alternative to deal with the enormous challenge posed by waste with its
obvious impact on human health, environment and natural ecosystems. It looks at waste as a
resource at every stage of its life cycle. This defines waste hierarchy as a set of priorities for the
efficient use of resources and underpins the objectives of waste management and wealth
Refuse: It encourages the community to avoid unnecessary consumption and make informed
life style choices by selecting items that use least packaging, require the least resources to
produce, can be used multiple times. It promotes buying products that are recycled, recyclable,
repairable, refillable, re-usable or biodegradable.
Reduce: It costs much less to make processes more efficient and prevent wastes from occurring
than to later consume more energy and materials to capture the wastes and then to reuse,
recycle, or dispose of them.
Reuse: It involves using resources in their existing forms without further reprocessing thereby
minimizing additional labor, material, water, and energy required for recycling. For example,
many household and industrial items can be repaired, re-used, sold or donated to charities,
thereby keeping them in the productive economy
Recycle: It involves transforming resources into a form that can be used as an input to a new
process i.e. taking a product or material at the end of its useful life and turning it into a usable
raw material to make another product. (e.g., recovering aluminum or plastic from drink containers,
reprocessing a by-product from a chemical process, or processing wastewater for secondary
Recover: Resource Recovery occurs after reduce, reuse and recycle have been attempted. It
entails conversion of waste materials for the recovery of resources (such as electricity, heat,
compost and fuel) or as metals, glass etc. through thermal and/ or biological means.
Disposal or treatment: Finally, the waste hierarchy recognizes that some types of waste, such
as hazardous chemicals or asbestos, cannot be safely recycled and direct treatment or disposal
is the most appropriate management option.
The 5Rs Principle: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover
■waste plastic bottles can be used as a decorative collection by the small change in it and sell them in a market.
■Made decorative and so many useful things with the help of waste plastic.This is the way to go through waste to wealth.
CONCLUSION:This is best lines to plastuc waste to wealth that means it is a new way to earning money and saves lifes and also the environment. Many ideas comes from many people by their sunggestion and make team to succed for it.
