There are about 20 tons of waste generated globally per year, with 60% of which can be recycled and reused. Solutions to protecting the environment are urgently needed. Among all, recycling system is absolutely one of the effective ways to reduce environmental pollution.

Recycling resources are separated into:
Post-Industry Recycled (PIR) / Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR)

PCR is the waste created by the end-user, after the product has accomplished its end of use.

 

In comparison, PIR is easier to be conducted than PCR because during the recycling process, a mixture of different materials will increase the difficulty of the processing.This is exactly what happens to PCR recycling process, where sorting and screening will take a lot of time and costs.
As a result, to ensure the quality of PCR material and to elevate the efficiency of the recycling system, it highly depends on the governmental policies and the work from each one of us.
