Industrial aspects of Polymers

Solid Waste Management of Polymers increasing volumes of synthetic polymers are manufactured for various applications. "The disposal of the used materials is changing into a heavy drawback.". Unlike natural polymers, most synthetic macromolecules cannot be assimilated by microorganisms. Although polymers represent slightly over 10% of total municipal waste, the problem of nonbiodegradability is highlighted by overflowing landfills, polluted marine waters, and unsightly litter. "Existing government laws in Europe and anticipated laws within the us can greatly limit the employment of polymers in massive volume applications (packaging, water treatment, paper and textile, sizing, etc.) unless acceptable means that of waste management are obtainable. Total management of compound wastes needs complementary mixtures of biodegradation, burning, and exercise.. Biodegradation is the most desirable long-term future solution and requires intensive research and development before it becomes practical. On the other hand, incineration and recycling can become operational in a relatively short time for the improvement of the situation at present and in the near future.
