Recycling of technogenic and anthropogenic plastic wastes

Speaker: Assoc. Prof. Lili Arabuli, UG

The recycling of technogenic and anthropological waste is the topical issue due to the following reasons: waste create adverse, and frequently hazardous ecological situation in the nature; by means of their reprocessing is possible to close a deficit in respective marketable production.

Development and implementation of high technologies of reprocessing of domestic and industrial waste is one of the hard-to-solve problems. Technology of industrial waste reprocessing should satisfy the following requirements: it should be non-waste, environmentally safe and economically profitable.

Among domestic waste the most problematic is industrial, domestic packing and packing for food products (detergents, mineral, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage). For manufacturing of this kind of packing are used polyethylene terephthalate, polyethylene, polypropylene and other organic polymers. After product’s consumption the volume of amortized packing is growing in a large quantities in the environment, and creates adverse ecological situation that causes the necessity of its (as secondary raw material) reprocessing [1,2].
