Recycling plastics for renewable energy

Nigeria and partnering companies are taking steps to reduce waste in landfills.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on the cooperation in waste reduction.

Nigeria generates more than 32 million tons of waste annually. This waste is generated from a variety of sources, including residential, commercial, and industrial sources. The vast majority of this waste is disposed of in landfills, with only a small percentage being recycled or composted. The waste generated in Nigeria poses a significant environmental and public health hazard. Landfills are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, and they also leach harmful chemicals into the soil and water. This can contaminate local water supplies and lead to a variety of health problems for the people who live near them. The government of Nigeria has taken some steps to address the problem of waste generation, but more needs to be done.

We need to start promoting recycling of plastics and other materials in this country. This is even the main reason why we end of having flood in some part of this country because people tend to dispose anywhere which ends up blocking the drainage.

One of the rules of thermodynamics is that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but transfered from one form to another. This is why recycling of plastics after it has been resolved to be a waste is a very good initiative. We should be able to recycle energy through the available resources that we have. So it can reduce the rate of waste in Nigeria.

Recycling has always been a better way to take advantage of garbage and profit from it, but we choose to disregard this and end up throwing it away in any way into drainage, which frequently results in flooding in some locations. Let all adjust to it for the better.

I hope Nigerian partnering companies to recycle waste will work out?When it come to this kind of things they’re not always effective in Nigeria. Anyway, if properly managed, we can generate extra income from recycle. Just like what was done in Europe, US and other advanced country.

A glimpse of hope in the Nigerian waste management sector is emerging. If this reality can be implemented successful and sustained then we are sure of reducing the spread of diseases through contaminated areas by the reasons of heaps of waste, through waste recycling we are sure generating more income.

This means that if we can recycle a large portion of the waste that we currently dispose of in landfills, it will not only benefit us more, but it will also safeguard the people who live nearby from gas emissions and dangerous chemicals that may seep into the soil and water and endanger their health.

Our waste management is really low in Nigeria.

It has even become a thing of every day to see dirt all around.

I hope this brings a new era in the way we recycle waste.

It is not a good idea to pollute the environment with wastes made of plastic since they have the potential to poison waterways and cause a wide range of health concerns for those who live in close proximity to them.

This will be good for us as a nation if we can successfully run this method of recycling our plastics and turning them into renewable energy because we have a lot of plastics we generate from people’s daily consumption of different drinks and other beverages that come with plastics.

Only a tiny amount of this garbage gets recycled or composted, while the vast bulk of it is dumped in landfills. Composting and recycling account for only a small portion of this waste.

In this country, we need to get the word out about recycling plastics and other products as soon as possible. This is the primary reason we end up having floods in various parts of this country because people tend to dispose of their garbage anyplace, which ultimately causes the drainage to become clogged.
