Plastic is a global threat despite its usefulness. Single-use plastic is only partially recycled and is dumped in oceans or landfills. The oceans are predicted to have more plastic than fish by 2050. In India, about 50 billion plastic bags, equivalent to about billion litres of fuel oil, are discarded every year. Tyres used for cars, trucks, tractors, mining machinery, earth moving equipment, aeroplanes, bicycles, and rickshaws get discarded when worn out. India’s huge amount of plastic and rubber waste urgently needs to be addressed.
Plastics capture around half of the carbon that is used to produce them and hence are a valuable resource. Plastics have higher calorific value than coal or paper and has potential to be a useful raw material to replace fossil fuels.
