  • Plastic Waste Management in India

    Plastic waste is recycled in India in an “unorganized” way. 60% of the plastic-waste collected and segregated gets recycled back into materials for further processing into consumer products, while the balance is left unutilized. Regulations and legislations are being enforced in two States of India viz. Haryana and Himachal pradesh, while a National Plastic Waste Management Council Task Force has ...


  • Plastics Waste Pyrolysis Optimisation

    This paper presents the optimisation of experimental parameters (run temperature, initial pressure, reaction time, and plastic waste feed) on plastic wastes pyrolysis total conversion and on yields of both gases and liquids. The plastic waste used will include, different compositions of the more abundant plastics in municipal solid wastes: polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene ...


  • Determining Proper Cooling Tower Size

    To maximize water-based cooling tower benefits, the appropriate tower size must be selected, requiring the identification of several critical factors. Cooling towers are a relatively inexpensive and reliable way of expelling heat from a number of industrial processes, including nuclear & thermal power plants, petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants, food processing plants, as well as HVAC ...

  • Electrostatic Separation of Mixed Plastics Waste

    A major environmental problem is mixed plastics waste. Because of the incompatibilities of the properties of different polymers, mixed waste is either land filled or reused in low value applications such as plastic wood. The barrier to economic re-use of these materials is separation into pure components. Recycled pure plastics can be used in place of virgin material and thereby much of the ...


  • Plastics waste management and resource recovery in India

    Exponential growth in plastic production and consumption has evoked concerns for its effective management. Within a decade, India has witnessed a substantial growth of 890% and 340% in plastic production and per capita consumption, respectively. Plastic recycling industries have mushroomed autonomously and accounts for 47% of annual recycling. Further, unscientific collection, transportation, ...

  • How to build waste plastic pyrolysis plant

    Preparation of raw material: The raw material can be waste tire, tyre, plastic or scrap rubber. All if the above wastes can be processed by our machine. The following are details: Separate the ingredient which can not be refined from waste plastic, such as: soil, wood, stone, brick etc. If the raw materials are paper mill’s waste, separate the pulp. If there is water in raw material, should ...


  • Economical: Two-Stage Grinding of Valuable Plastic Waste

    Until now large cutting mills with high drive performances have been used for the single-stage crushing of large and heavy pipes, bulk plastic products etc. This leads to high investment volume, high sound emissions, frequent blade changes, high energy and personnel costs, among other things. On the other hand, two-stage crushing enables plastic processing companies to economically process ...


  • Recycling of plastic waste by density separation: Prospects for optimization

    A review of existing industrial processing and results of alternative processing investigations for separating solid mixtures and specifically recycling plastic waste by density separation is presented. Media density separation is shown to be fundamental for separation and/or pre-concentration in the recycling of plastics. The current use of static media processes limits the capacity and size of ...

  • New research may solve the problem of plastic wastes

    GLOBE-Net, May 8, 2013* - Plastic - it is an indispensable part of our everyday lives and an almost indestructible part of the garbage that daily ends up in our landfills, incinerators, junk yards, in our rivers or oceans, or in the bellies of fish or animals that form part of our food chain.  Every year, over 260 million tonnes of plastic are produced globally. That is ...

  • Chemical Recycling of Plastics Waste (PVC and other resins)

     Introduction For several years, debate has raged about the plastic PVC. Industry and environmentalists contend with each other virtually around the world. The environmentalists pursue a ban, industry aims to improve its environmental performance and believes that from an overall viewpoint there is no reason for such far-reaching measures against their material. In this context, the material ...

  • The future of plastics - Is there a solution to this huge waste management problem?

    Plastic - it has become the cornerstone of our modern life style, and one of the most challenging global waste management problems. So beneficial in countless ways, this nearly indestructible material is littering our environment on land and sea. Difficult to recycle, as post-consumer waste, and hard to break down, plastic in its many forms has become a serious environment problem. But solutions ...
