RECOMMENDATIONS

On October 2 2019, the government of India clarified that plastic items would not be banned immediately. Instead, it has asked state urban departments and urban local bodies (ULBs) to shore up plastic waste management in states and cities respectively through heavy investment in source segregation and end-to-end waste management. States have been left free to introduce prohibitive action on single use plastics (SUPs) by identifying a clear list of products that need to be targeted.  Download pdf Contact person: Swati Singh Sambyal swati@cseindia.org Programme Manager Municipal Solid Waste Dinesh Raj Bandeladinesh.bandela@cseindia.orgDeputy Programme Manager Municipal Solid Waste  

RECYCLING PLASTICS

Recycling of plastics has an enormous potential to mitigate the consequences of plastic use and consumption. Using recycled plastics for downstream applications can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. A study estimates that we save approximately 3.8 barrels of petroleum by recycling a tonne of plastic waste.1  Download pdf Contact person: Swati Singh Sambyal swati@cseindia.org Programme Manager Municipal Solid Waste Dinesh Raj Bandeladinesh.bandela@cseindia.orgDeputy Programme Manager Municipal Solid Waste  

THE PROBLEM OF PLASTICS

Plastics industry and growing consumption of plastic products Plastics production in India has surged over the past 50 years – from 15 million tonnes (MT) in 1964 to 311 MT in 2014 – and is expected to double again over the next 20 years.1 The growth rate of the Indian plastics industry is one of the highest in the world: plastics consumption is growing at 16 per cent per annum in the country (compared to 10 per cent annually in China and around 2.5 per cent annually in the UK) Download pdf Contact person: Swati Singh Sambyal swati@cseindia.org Programme Manager Municipal Solid Waste Dinesh Raj Bandeladinesh.bandela@cseindia.orgDeputy Programme Manager Municipal Solid Waste
