The Demand of Plastic Pipes Promotes the Development of Waste Plastic Industry
Waste plastic used to be called trash and would bring white pollution to the environment. It cannot be dealt with by bury, for it takes thousands of years to degrade, nor by incineration, for there would be thick black smokes.
Then should we stop using plastic products? No. plastic has already been widely used and accepted and plastic products have become one part of our life. The best way to solve the problem caused by waste plastic is to recycle and reuse them, which has formed the waste plastic recycling industry.
Recently, as the great development of crude oil and nature gas, pipes are also in great demand, which are used to transport oil and gas.
In addition to the pipes used in this area, construction industry also needs large amount of pipes.
Pipes made from the plastics, compared with those of other materials, such as steel pipes, have the advantages of light in weight, low in cost, rust proofing and so on. Therefore, plastic pipes will have larger market share than those of other materials in the future.
Meanwhile, waste plastic recycling is an important project that would benefit both the economy and environment. And as raw material in production of plastic pipes, waste plastic is lower in cost than the new plastic. Pipes for gully drain, vent duct and those irrelevant with drinking water can be made from waste plastic.
The trend of using waste plastic to produce pipes will vastly promote the development of waste plastic recycling industry and the technologies of regenerating and processing the waste plastic. Apart from the plastic pipe industry, other plastic related industries also need waste plastic materials to produce their products.
For example, EPS blocks—waste EPS compressed by EPS compactors, which can be processed into pellets to manufacture picture frames, are desperately wanted by INTCO, an EPS recycling specialist, who also has established GREENMAX—a famous brand of plastic recycling machine.
As long as the plastic industry continues to develop, waste plastic recycling has a wide range of sources.
