1. WHAT IS A CIRCULAR ECONOMY?
Traditionally, the linear economy follows the “take-make-dispose” plan: raw materials are collected, then transformed into products that are used until they are rejected as scrap. Fundamentally different from a linear economy, a circular economy is an economy system of closed loops that employs reuse, sharing, repair, remanufacturing and recycling to minimize the consumption of resource inputs, thus manage long-lived products and equipment.
2. WHY A CIRCULAR ECONOMY MUST BECOME THE “NEW PLASTICS ECONOMY”?
Today, 95% of plastic packaging material value or USD 80 – 120 billion annually is lost to the economy after a short first use. Besides, globally, from the period of 1950 to 2015, only 9% of plastic waste generated was recycled. Determining plastics waste as a renewable resource, the circular economy aims to eliminate waste, maximize value and treat plastics correctly and efficiently. Further, it is also approaching innovation, social inclusion, and economic development.
