Giới thiệu

More than half of the plastic waste dumped into the ocean comes from just five countries: China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. The increasing middle class of these countries had led to the excessive consumption of plastic and plastic-intensive goods, which grows at the same rate as the economy of these countries. Most of these countries import waste from western countries and since China decision on banning import waste in 2017, the situation will drastically aggravate.

Finally, the insufficient waste management infrastructure of these countries is not able to deal with the increasing excess of waste. As a result, 75% of ocean plastic comes from uncollected waste and 25% from leakage of collected waste (McKinsey Report, 2015). As an immediate priority, punctual actions targeting the reduction of plastic-waste leakage through innovative solutions might result in a 45% reduction globally. These solutions might include the improvement and diversification of collection systems, the increase of waste-collection rates, the introduction and adoption of new technologies to treat waste and sorting out high-value plastic waste.

The Seminar “ReThink Plastic” has the ambition to shed light on how to make a more sustainable use of plastic products and to brainstorm on possible innovative solutions to deal with waste management and reuse of plastic products into more sustainable products.
