The Impact of Plastic Waste Reduction on Process Safety

Whitepaper Download

The last few years have seen ever-increasing pressure in public opinion to minimize plastic waste - especially, the plastic residue that ends up in the oceans and gives rise to accumulations such as the infamous “Great Pacific Garbage Patch.”

We might expect to see slower growth in plastic production on one hand, with faster growth in activities related to alternative products or plastic management on the other.
The question of how the trend towards a reduction in plastic waste will affect process safety is therefore a very valid one. Plastics are composed of polymers derived mainly from the petrochemical industry. Along their entire production chain there are well-known process safety hazards.
In this paper, we analyze the different options at hand for plastic waste reduction and their expected impact on process safety.
