  • Plastic recycling is the process of reprocessing plastic that already has been used before and giving it some new reusable form. The steps followed in the plastic recycling are enumerated below :-Collecting recyclable plastic waste,.Categorizing the recyclable plastic waste,.Processing the categorized plastic waste, accordingly into various raw materials, and.Manufacturing of new products from these raw materials

  • Future ForecastThe Indian plastic industry clearly has the potential to continue its fast growth. However, over the next few years, competition in the industry is expected to increase considerably, as a result of global trends, which will become applicable to the liberalizing economy of country. To survive the competition, both polymer manufacturers and processors will need to adopt radically new methods and approaches to reduce costs, improve market and customer service and management of performance. The per capita consumption of plastics in India is well below the world average. However it also reflects the many years of growth ahead, as the country's economy continues to grow and upgrade the usage of products. Translating the expected growth rate into incremental demand, it is obvious that the country will remain one of the largest sources of additional demand for almost all kinds of plastics. Hence, it is clear that plastics will continue to be a growth industry, with boosting prospects for fresh investments in polymerization and downstream processing capacity. This is in contrast to the situation in various other countries, where growth prospects are limited, either because of stagnant demand or due to the historical over building. In such countries, the overall outlook would be far less promising, with the key imperatives being cost cutting and capacity rationalization.
  • Transcript of "Plastic recycling"

    1. 1. Plastic Industry and Recycling
    2. 2. WHAT IS PLASTIC • Plastic is a widely used material that is generally made form petroleum • Two broad categories of plastic materials : thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics
    3. 3. • INDIAN PLASTIC INDUSTRY • Started production of polystyrene in 1957 • LDPE (1959) • PVC (1961) • HDPE (1968) • POLYPROPYLENE (1978) • Highly fragmented industry • Accounts to only 1% of the world’s exports
    4. 4. TRENDS IN INDIAN PLASTIC INDUSTRY
    5. 5. TYPES OF PLASTIC WASTE PET OR PETE (POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE) HDPE (HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE)
    6. 6. • PVC (POLYVINYL CHLORIDE) LDPE (LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE)
    7. 7. TYPES OF PLASTIC WASTE PP (POLYPROPYLENE) PS (POLYSTYRENE) OTHERS
    8. 8. Why to recycle plastic • Plastic in the oceans is responsible for the deaths of millions of sea animals. • Plastic never degrades • Incinerating plastic contributes to greenhouse gases • Plastics contain harmful chemicals • Making new plastic requires significant amounts of fossil fuels • People in the U.S. throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles an hour
    9. 9. WHAT IS PLASTIC RECYCLING???
    10. 10. PLASTIC RECYCLING • Process of reprocessing plastic that already has been used before and giving it some new reusable form • More complicated than glass or metal recycling
    11. 11. WHAT IS THE RECYCLING PROCESS???
    12. 12. RECYCLING PROCESS Sorting washing Shredder & granulators Agglomerator
    13. 13. OUTCOMES OF PLASTIC RECYCLING
    14. 14. OUTCOMES OF RECYCLING PLASTIC • PET OR PETE (POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE) • HDPE (HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE) • PVC (POLYVINYL CHLORIDE
    15. 15. OUTCOMES OF RECYCLING PLASTIC • LDPE (LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE) • PP (POLYPROPYLENE) • PS (POLYSTYRENE) • OTHERS
    16. 16. BENEFITS OF RECYCLING PLASTIC • Conserving energy • Lower emissions • Conservation of resources • Reusability • Saves landfills space • Creates job opportunities
