Challenges ahead of recycling companies
Recycling is a process that has gained a huge amount of popularity because of its benefits to the nature and environment. It has very smartly curbed many environmental problems in some countries. Most countries in the world today are following this process to make their lands; waste free. Despite having multiple advantages this process isn’t without its challenges. Where many countries in the world are still looking at ways of including this process in their system, most of recycling companies are already gearing up for the challenges ahead. So let’s understand what these challenges are and how can they be successfully tackled?
Technology and techniques that are used for plastic recycling are still in their development stages. Majority of recycling companies are using plastics from goods that were made 15 to 20 years ago such as cars and fridge. However, plastic that is used today is different from what it was 15 years ago. Therefore in few years’ time when these companies will start using this new plastic they will have to come up with a separate process.
Second major challenge in front of this process is that to come up with new techniques proper government support is required. New techniques demand resources both in terms of land and money. To support these experiments and technology government need to spare separate budget for this process, which in most countries is not possible. For this process to be successful it is imperative that it gets support from all sections of society.
In most countries level of awareness regarding this process is still very poor. In some Asian and African countries, people still feel that landfills are the best solution to curb rising problems of waste. This is why the level of work that needs to be done in those regions is significantly low as compared to European nations. It is true that in last few years this process has grown up significantly but most of these numbers is significantly contributed by European and American countries. Though this process is seen as an excellent alternative to curb waste, it still has a long way to go before it can establish itself fully in every country.
