PLASTIC WASTE RECYCLING PROGRAMME LAUNCHED BY MINISTER FRANCIS D’SOUZA
Goa Minister for Urban Development Francis D’Souza on Friday launched a plastic waste recycling programme in Goa that aims to collect, process and recycle used plastic.
An estimated 4-5 tonne of plastic is likely to be collected every day through the project. The collected plastic will be converted into products like T-shirts, fabric, backpacks etc and the hard to recycle low-end plastics like carry-bags, laminates would be used to manufacture compressed boards, co- incineration in cement kilns, road laying and pyrolysis.
