Analysis

Plastics include materials composed of various elements such as chlorine, carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. Plastics are macromolecules, formed due to polymerization and shaped by the application of reasonable amount of heat and pressure or another form of forces. Plastic materials types are distinguished depending on their physical properties, which can be classified as thermoplastic or thermosetting plastic materials. Plastics have become an essential part of our day to day life since most of the products that we use today is made up of plastic materials. A large amount of plastic wastes are generated across the world, which mostly comes from household and industries such as packaging, electronics, automobile, construction, and agriculture. Processed raw material which includes fossil fuel is lost in the form of plastic waste instead of recycling it into novel products. Various organizations such as Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive, the Waste Framework Directive, and the European Environment Agency have taken initiatives to recycle plastic and energy recovery. 

Plastic is a robust material and it can lead to various problems such as uncontrolled disposal and municipal waste management. Recycling of plastic is essential for the society as it ensures energy recovery and carbon footprint reduction. For instance, in Europe, in 2012 nearly 25.2 million tons of plastic have been collected as plastic waste, and about 62% of it was recovered through recycling and energy recovery while 38% of it was dumped in landfills. Plastic is cheap and versatile, plastic that is recycled is used to manufacture various products such as garbage bags, bottles, containers, films, cloths, and carpet, among others. Plastic waste management market will benefit due to the usage of recycled plastic in industrial applications which is predicted to increase significantly over the forecast timeframe.
