Marine Plastic

Rushabh T. Shende | Dr. V.M. Athawale


Abstract: Plastic surrounds us. It is not just the obvious places like water bottles and straws. It is also used to build our cars and is found in our face washes and fabrics. With the invention of plastic in the early 20th century, we became a world that relished the privilege of cheap, easy-to-produce plastic pieces. Plastic has many benefits, but it also has left a legacy of trash. Depending on the type of plastic and where it lands, items can take days to hundreds of years to break down into very small pieces, which likely never biodegrade. Because of these traits and our intensive use of it, plastic trash is now found in essentially every ecosystem on the planet including throughout the ocean. Plastic waste is also believed to cost up to $33, 000 per ton in reduced environmental value, the study found. An estimated 8m tons of plastic pollution enters the world’s oceans every year. This plastic waste can be reused in many different ways. If this plastic is reused we can save our ecosystem. This marine plastic has lot of beneficiating properties such it does not get corrode and, been in ocean for long period of time have been exposed to extreme cold, heat and pressure, didn’t get any change in its property. This plastic might be a type of pollution but this is one of the best and cheapest ways to manufacture a product and fight against the plastic.  This paper will provides a brief introduction to plastic waste, marine plastic pollution, reuse of marine plastic its characteristics and properties and, some of its future scope. We will also discuss some of its processes of manufacture of the material from marine plastic and its use in manufacturing of car and its part.
