What do plastic waste experts or consultants do? Plastic is one of the most widely used and cheapest materials in the world today. Almost everything is either made from plastic or wrapped in plastic. We use around 5 trillion plastic bags a year worldwide! The US alone throws away enough plastic bottles in a week to encircle the world 5 times. Plastic pollution involves the accumulation of these plastic products in the environment in ways that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, or humans. Plastics that act as pollutants are categorized into micro-, meso-, or macro debris, based on size. The prominence of plastic pollution is correlated with plastics being inexpensive and durable, which lends to high levels of plastics used by humans. However, it is slow to degrade. Currently, only 1 to 3% of all plastics used are recycled. As we realize the ever increasing threat plastics play in our environment, plastic waste experts serve to assist in resolving these problems and assisting in converting the otherwise polluting debris into something useful by such technologies as pyrolysis.
Plastics waste experts encompass many different types of expertise, often chemistry, biology or other life sciences. Experts are those that have a background, education and experience in their area of expertise. Each will have a good working knowledge of the technological developments in the areas, and the ability to assist in project planning and development.
