So the plastic recycling machine related products are produced. The advantages of machines are time saving and labor saving. Thus, the recycling cost is reduced and people could get much more benefits as much as possible. Plastic recycling is accepted by the popular which is the reason that more and more people have started to engage in plastic recycling industry now.
Recently, a new United Kingdom project which could significantly improve the recyclability of flexible packaging in order to divert waste plastic or plastic foams away from landfills. The project aims to create a circular economy for flexible packaging by getting the whole supply chain involved. The responsible man said the project could attract polymer producers, packaging manufacturers, waste management firms and recyclers.
Also, a research about how to collect, sort flexible packaging and process into high-quality recycled plastic pellet had already started. And the recycled plastic pellet is suitable for use in the manufacturer of a wide range of products.
In China, large-scale bioplastics project has been started. The project will invest a total of 950 million yuan on the production site and construction is estimated to take 18 months. Once it reached its designed capacity, the project is expected to generate 1.65 billion yuan in average annual sales. The project could serve a wide range of end markets, including 3-D printing, housewares, disposable products, baby products and fiber.
In North America, recycling of plastics continues to gain momentum. In the consumption-driven society, the use of plastics is increasing rapidly throughout North America. The main reason is that the benefits demonstrated by the use of plastics over other materials.
Now the plastic recycling is growing importance from both of an environmental and economic standpoint. But this area has its own challenges as 2015 approaches, and the challenge couldn't stop the industry from growing. The recycled PET is dominantly consumed as fiber for textiles and carpets. Additionally, plastic film was also collected for recycling and the amount of recycled plastic film was increasing as well.
So people have to pay attention to waste plastic recycling as so many people have started to make efforts to waste recycle.
