How Aluminium Can Solve the Plastic Pollution Problem in the World

Contributed by: Anonymouscalendar March 15, 2021

The environmental impact of plastics has been receiving increased attention recently however the problem has been identified long back. Plastics came into use in 1950's and by 1970-80's the issue of plastic waste came into existence. Globally it has been one of the most pressing concerns in recent times and the growing use & manufacturing of “virgin plastics” are actually adding to it.

Plastics are mostly used in packaging and manufacturing industry and typically there are two types of issues that have made the matter worst. First of all, plastics cannot be recycled, they can technically be downcycled only. This actually uses ~90% virgin-based plastics & hence most plastic that finally gets recycled is often made into carpet, clothes or other fibres. Secondly, even that downcycling to happen, the plastic waste has to be extremely clean & uncontaminated. This has been the reason of ...show more
