Utilization of Waste Plastic and Rubber for Commercial Purpose

ABSTRACT
Plastic and Rubber materials have become the corner stone of our lives, so it leads to generation of huge quantity of waste. These waste materials are either mixed with municipal solid waste or dumped in an open area leading to increase in the area covered under waste land. Plastic and rubber waste, if not recycled is either land filled or incinerated, where both of them prove to be a disaster to environment. Incineration leads to air pollution whereas dumping the waste in open areas causes contamination of water bodies and soil. Thus, an alternative for treatment of plastic waste and waste rubber tyres is required especially to enable utilization on a commercial scale. Recycling of these wastes is of increasing importance as our economy today is based on ancient system of stewardship where resources are limited and we need to satisfy all aspects of durability and economy. Thus a judicious and appropriate use of resources is required.
