6 At the Plant Processing Plastic Bottles

At the Plant Processing Plastic Bottles

Posted on June 13, 2012 by team

We all buy drinks in plastic bottles but few bring them to special drop-off stations. And some people including some authorities believe that utilization of such materials in Russia is an achievement of remote future.

However, not far from Moscow, near Solnechnogorsk, since 2007 has been working the plastics processing plant "Plarus" - the first Russian enterprise that applies a unique technology of plastic package processing which is called "bottle-in-bottle".

Advertising banners in Solnechnogorsk call people to throw plastics only into special containers.

However not all the citizens share the good intentions. Many of them believe that "Plarus" makes them breathe in poisons. The myth appeared when they planned to build some chemical enterprise on the place where "Plarus" is today.

    Well the paper that was recycled carries a variety of bacteria that is not making people sick.

    Plastic cannot be sterilized, glass can be and recycled and re-used over & over (unless broken).

    Who was the genius who decided plastic over glass???

    Recycling uses MORE energy than new raw material and using glass would be less expensive.

    Just like the florescent bulbs that contain MERCURY and poisonous!!!

    I do also prefer glass bottles, but plastic bottles are lighter, and you can pack them closer to each other, and that makes the transport cost lower. But its nice to see that Russia is at least trying to recycle plastic bottles, the get burned way too often…

    recyled paper products do NOT carry bacteria, the puplping process used in most plants involves boiling water and the paper is bleached, the bleaching process kills bacteria.
    Plastic is melted to 280C, this steralises the plastic, there are NO bacteria that can survive this!
