The term “plastic” was taken from the Greek word “plastikos,” which means “to mould.” Compounds comprising hydrogen and carbon (hydrocarbon) in fossil fuels serve as building blocks for lengthy polymer molecules.
These building units are known as monomers, and they combine to form long carbon chains known as polymers. Plastic is described as a material that contains an organic compound with a high molecular weight as an essential constituent.
Polymers with long carbon chains are another definition. Hermoplastic: Plastics that can be easily distorted and bent when heated.
Thermoplastics include linear polymers and a combination of linear and cross-linked polymers. PVC, nylon, polythene, and other materials are examples.
Thermosetting plastics are those that, once moulded, cannot be softened again by heating. Polymers that are heavily cross-linked
The Ethiopia Plastics Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
Thousands of people in Ethiopia Addis Abeba are reliant on the.To make a living, plastic materials must be recovered. Furthermore, the actions have demonstrated to be financially successful and to play a major role in solid waste management It is.
It was stated that the lack of a systematic mechanism for recovering plastic materials made it conceivable.for the informal sector to fill the void left by the government Furthermore, the recovery has been possible due to the government’s lack of knowledge of the informal sector.system to develop independently.
One of the major challenges confronting the plastic recovery system is the government’s misunderstanding of the informal plastic recovery system, as well as civil society’s lack of trust and credibility in the government.
As a result, every attempt by the government to implement new tactics inside the system appears to fail, because they do not consider or interact with actors involved at the local level.
