In the last ten years, we have made more plastic than we did in the century before that. Our ocean is affecting by plastic. Plastic is terrible, because it is durable. Almost every piece of plastic ever made is still on the planet in some form or another. Plastic production globally this year is expected to be more than 300 million tons. Half of which we'll use just once and then throw away. By 2050, when the population explodes to almost 10 billion people. It is expected that plastic production will triple. Today only a fraction of the plastic that we produce is recycled. The rest ends in our environment. Scientists estimate that there are more than five trillion pieces of plastic afloat in our oceans worldwide. Many of the marine creatures eating this kind of plastic are in our food chain. These plastics absorb chemicals. So, when the fish eat the plastics, those toxins then migrate from the plastic into the muscles or the fats, the parts that we like to eat in fish. So what is the solution of this problem? Pyrogenesis of Montreal was contracted by the U.S. Navy to develop a green technology capable of processing the waste. At the heart of this technology is a plasma torch that changes the molecular structure of whatever is put into it, transforming it back to its core elements. Cynar, a waste-to-fuel company designed a machine that turns plastic which aren't usually recyclable into diesel. Using a heating process called Pyrolysis, it turns an environmental problem into a valuable commodity. Each machine can process about 20 tons of plastic daily, making about 18000 litres of diesel. Sign this petition to force Indian Government to buy such plastic waste processing technology from either outside or invent such technology at home. Plastic problem, if not solved will create havoc. Think of the future generations. They will thank us for this effort.
