Abstract

Plastics are reasonably priced, lightweight and durable materials, which can readily be moulded into a variety of products that find use in a wide range of applications. As a consequence, the production of plastics has increased markedly over the last few decades. However, current levels of their usage and removal generate several environmental problems. A main portion of plastic produced each year is used to make disposable items of packaging or other short-lived products that are discarded within a year of manufacture. These two observations alone specify that our current use of plastics is not sustainable. In addition, because of the durability of the polymers involved, substantial quantities of discarded end-of-life plastics are accumulating as wreckage in landfills and in natural habitats worldwide. Reusing is one of the most vital actions currently available to reduce these impacts.
