The Menace of Plastic. A Worldwide Plague

It’s probably true to say that virtually everyone is now well aware of the risks that plastic, especially single-use plastic items such as bags, cups, bottles and drinking straws etc, pose to our planet.  In fact only today it has been reported that a dead whale, washed up onto one of Scotland’s beaches, was found to have no less that 100kg of plastic waste in its stomach. 

It’s probably true to say that virtually everyone is now well aware of the risks that plastic, especially single-use plastic items such as bags, cups, bottles and drinking straws etc, pose to our planet.  In fact only today it has been reported that a dead whale, washed up onto one of Scotland’s beaches, was found to have no less than 100kg of plastic waste in its stomach. Yet it appears that there are still far too many people, and organizations too for that matter, who are not prepared to do anything about it.  Far too many plastic items are dumped into bins where it is destined for landfill and according to experts will take about a zillion years before it decomposes. Even worse, too much plastic is simply thrown away indiscriminately and we see evidence of this every day on our streets, parks, countryside, beaches,Medical Waste Incinerator and waterways.  Discarded plastic is a genuine threat to our wildlife and too many animals, birds and fish die as a result of the irresponsible disposal of plastic objects.

Yet the incineration of plastic waste is a simple, viable, economical and environmentally responsible solution.

Over recent years the science of waste incineration has come a very long way and Matthews Environmental Solutions (MES) has constantly been at the forefront of development and technological advancement.

In fact, many of today’s industry benchmarks were originally developed by MES. The incineration of plastic waste is just one area where we can provide proven solutions that not only completely destroy plastic waste but also fully comply with all the   world’s most stringent environmental standards and regulations.  The point is if you have the correct waste incineration technology you can be assured that you have the means to destroy all types of plastic in an ethical and environmentally responsible manner that will one hundred per cent prevent waste plastic from contaminating our land, rivers and seas.

 It is the only fully assured way to eliminate the curse of plastic waste from our planet, without in any way affecting our land, water and air.

By using MES incineration of plastic waste technology you remove every threat by the ultra-efficiency of the combustion process, the advanced flue gas abatement process and the waste exhaust neutralisation. Any exhaust emissions released into the atmosphere have been thoroughly cleaned so that there is no risk whatsoever of pollution. Even the final ash deposits pose no risks to our environment.

 And in addition to all this, there could even be financial benefits involved too.

Thanks to the outstanding development work by MES system designers and depending on the scale of your incineration of plastic waste operation, it is entirely possible that we could incorporate the latest Energy Recovery Systems into the design that will enable you to capitalise on the process by converting the heat generated within the waste incineration process into useable Steam, Hot Water or Hot Air. All of which could prove to be a cost-effective and valuable resource for your operation.
