I am a Plastic Engineer and I am always thinking that how can be this Plastic can be reuse and save lots of resources. Because now days we and whole over our country is running out of important resources. Like energy, which matters more for India in this rapidly growing and adapting every change. So I found something interesting on Internet which can create a revolution in Indian Plastic Industries.
A manufacturer of home appliances has launched a range of vacuum cleaners made from the waste plastics recovered from polluted waters of the seas. Even the plastic bottles and other waste plastic materials which were abandoned in the waves, can become a resource. I found a project named “Vac from the sea” which is promoted by a Swedish brand wants to turn the waste plastics into a vacuum cleaner. In this project Plastic will be collected from waste collection procedure which takes place on the surface of or under water. In this process we also need some professional divers as we have much divers in India who are professional than any other but still have not any light for their talent.
The objective from that company is to achieve a production of 100 percent sustainable recycled Plastic. I really wants to say Thanks to this awesome project in which the reuse has a double function. Firstly it takes full advantage of the ‘”embodied energy” of the product, ie the energy used during its production through reuse. Second the most important the waters of the sea are cleaned from waste plastic which will float on it. Like Islands of Plastic.
We all know that amount of the plastic waste present in The Indian Ocean, remember it is the the biggest conglomerates of plastic waste. Specifically, It was formed from fueled by waste coming for 20 per cent of ships and oil platforms and 80 percent directly from the mainland. According to experts, producing a vacuum cleaner with the result of material recycling will be a relief to planet. Which would save 80 liters of water. The use of recycled plastic saves on average 90 percent of the water resource and 80-90 percent of the energy that would be used to produce plastic ‘virgin’. It is the real; need for Indian Plastic Industries as I think, What you think share with us.
