* Plastics is one of the few new chemical materials which pose environmental problem. Polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polyester is largely used in the manufacture of Plastics Plastics is the general common term for a wide range of synthetic or semi synthetic organic solid materials suitable for the manufacture of industrial products .Plastics are typically polymers of high molecular weight and may contain other substances to improve performance and/or reduce costs.2. * 3. Types of Plastic Products• Plastics Bags• Plastic Coatings• Plastic Furniture• Plastic Sheets• Plastics Tanks and Bottles• Plastic Toys• Plastic Buckets• Plastic Stationery * Reduction of carbon dioxide generation• Excellent thermal and electrical insulation properties. by two-and-a-half times• Relatively inexpensive to produce. Reduction of water usage by nearly 90%food packaging. Production of only a third of the sulphur• Resistance to chemicals, water and dioxide and half of the nitrous oxide impact.• Good safety and hygiene properties for Reduction of energy consumption bymaterials, reducing fuel consumption during transportation. two-thirds• Extreme durability. 4. A report on the production of carrier bags made fromBenefits of Plastics recycled polythene The considerable growth in plasticuse is due to the beneficial concluded that the use ofproperties of plastics. Theseinclude: recycled plastic resulted in•Extreme versatility and ability to be the followingtailored to meet very specific technicalneeds. environmental benefits:•Lighter weight than competing * 5. Uses Of Plastics
* 6. Wastage of Plastics
* 7. A DIFFERENT STUDY CONCLUDED THAT 1.8 TONNES OF OIL ARE SAVED FOR EVERY TONNE OF RECYCLED POLYTHENE PRODUCED.In addition, plastics manufacture requires other resources such as land and water and produceswaste and emissions....
