Plastics are available in a number of forms for example plastic containers, jars, bottles, plastic bags, packaging plastic and etc. The recycling facilities gather available recyclable plastic material in their area, such as from roadside collections, special recycling bins, or even directly from industries. In this way, both post-consumer and post-industrial plastic items are collected.
Sorting, the first step in recycling plastic waste after collection, separates, cleans and prepares materials intended for recycling. Depending on its nature, sorted plastic waste will be processed directly on the site of the recycling company responsible for receiving it or be taken to a specialist recycling centre. Since there are many categories of materials and many processes, varying according to the type of product, we are going to identify the main methods used by Paprec, follow the route taken by materials in recycling centres and detail the treatment methods specific to the various types of plastic waste.
After sorting, the sorted plastic products are prepared for melting by being cut into small pieces. The plastic items are fed into a machine which has sets of blades that slice through the material and break the plastic into tiny bits. Plastic materials usually need to be cut into smaller sizes in order to allow further processing and to provide easier packaging, transportation, and distribution of recycled stock. This cutting presents certain challenges, as many plastics are abrasive to metal blades and can have wide variation in their hardness, weight, and thickness. Most standard size reduction is performed by single or multi-shaft shredders, and granulators.
At this step in the process of recycling plastic, all residue of products originally contained in the plastic items and various other ‘contaminants’ (e.g. paper labels, dirt) are removed. A particular wash solution consisting of an alkaline, cationic detergent and water are used to effectively get rid of all the contaminants on the plastic material, making sure that all the plastic bits are clean and ready for the final step
The dry flakes are melted down. They can be melted down and molded into a new shape or they are melted down and processed into granules. The melting process is done under regulated temperatures. There is specialized equipment designed to melt down plastic without destroying them.
After the melting process, the plastic pieces are then compressed into tiny pellets known as nurdles. In this state, the plastic pellets are ready for reuse or be redesigned into new plastic products. It is important to point out that recycled plastic is hardly used to make identical plastic item or its previous form. It is in this pellet form that plastics are transported to plastic manufacturing companies to be redesigned and be used in making other useful plastic products.
Identify barren lands of large extent and do scientific forestation for maximum environmental benifit and CO2 Reduction. Afforestation refers to the process of converting a non-forest land into a forest. Afforestation is highly important to maintain the biodiversity. Afforestation is necessary to combat the issues of global warming, soil erosion, pollution, and the maintenance of biodiversity and ecological balances. Trees uses water and carbon-dioxide (CO2) to convert it into organic matter (wood) and oxygen. Thus, trees acts as the natural air-purifiers and helps relieve the environment.
Bridging production of Khadi and corporate users through latest Designed and direct to customer concept. The Khadi clothes have played an essential role throughout history. They reflect the personality of individuals and can be used as a marker of a group, community, family, region and even country. Indian culture is older than history. The building up and casting aside of different identities by means of clothes has been a recurring theme in it.
Scientific/Organic Farming of Medicinal plants to replace chemicals with natural nutrients/vitamins.Scientific Farming is to improve the water supplies, use the machine, use the chemicals and improved the species.The purposes are to increase the farm outputs, decrease the work of the farmers.Organic farming is an agricultural method of plantation and feeding poultry with natural principles. Organic farmers avoid artificial fertilizers and pesticides. They will make use of crop rotation and discard recycling to keep the soil fertile. This will balance the interest of beneficial and harmful species so as to the growth of healthy crops
