Polymers and the Environment

Today The conventional polymer materials are available , exclusively the plastics, which is the result for decades of evolution. utilization of raw materials and energy, as well as of waste release the production is extremely efficient .These products show an excellent property like to water and  high mechanical strength to microorganisms, it is low-cost due to manufacturing scale ,low density especially for transporting goods and process optimization. However, some of their most useful features, the chemical, physical and biological inertness, and durability resulted in their accumulation in the environment if not recycled. Unfortunately, the build-up of plastics, along with other materials, is becoming a serious worry for all countries in the world. These materials occupy significant volume in landfills and dumps today. Recently, the presences of huge amounts of plastic waste items are dumped into the oceans has been observed, from  different sources like streets, going through the drains with the rain, and then going into the rivers and lakes, and then to the oceans. Those materials are harmful for living organism and it can affect the ecosystem too. So, these wastes should be recycled or managed under systematic method. As it leads , there is a very strong and irreversible movement, in all countries of the world, to use materials that do not harm the planet, that is, low environmental impact materials.
