Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
ICIS, a RELX business, analyses the complex problem plastics, recycling, and disposal, relating to SDG 12, Sustainable Consumption and Production. They believe the solution is likely to involve improving recycling infrastructures; designing new, more sustainable plastics; designing products with an end-of-life plan; finding new ways to degrade plastics – such as plastic-eating mealworms and microbes; and diversifying the raw materials that make plastics to plant-based alternatives.
This article, relating to SDG 12, Responsible Consumption and Production, analyses global recycling and sustainability trends, chemical industry environmental regulations, and supply chain issues.
