Recycling Plastic – Centre for Science and Environment

Plastics are omnipresent, a part of our everyday lives. The very same properties that make them such essential parts of our lifestyles – their low cost, low weight, durability etc – also render them into an unreasonable prospect when it comes to management of plastic waste. Recycling is a readily cited panacea – but is it? The Central Pollution Control Board cannot say how much capacity does India have to recycle or process plastic waste. Analysis suggests that the number of formal recycling units in the country went down by 97 per cent between 2018 and 2019, while the quantum of plastic recycled in the same period increased by a meagre 8.3 per cent.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a webinar to discuss and demystify the plastic waste recycling sector. CSE will also release its new report on the subject on this occasion.

NOTE: This is a free webinar for waste management practitioners, officials from Central and state departments and municipalities, recycling professionals, plastic industry representatives, urban and town planners, academicians, students, NGO representatives and anyone who is willing to learn about plastic waste management practices in the country.

All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. However, we request you to register yourself at the earliest since seats at the webinar would be limited, and reach out to us in case of any queries.
