As we talk about Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste, people end up asking different questions based on this Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste. And the first question mainly being asked by them is,
What are Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste?
Let us help you out in clarifying the concept of what Pre-consumer and Post-consumer plastic waste originally is, by distinguishing and defining each one separately.
- Pre-Consumer Plastic Waste:
Pre-Consumer Plastic Waste is a type of waste that cannot meet its final step of being consumed or used by the consumer for example if Multi-layered Plastic that is used for product packaging is been misprinted, then it can be considered as Pre-Consumer plastic waste. Pre-Consumer Plastic waste is discarded waste with a few faults or mistakes in its packaging printing or is not properly packaged. And so, this type of waste hasn’t reached any consumer or met its end-use.
Pre-Consumer Plastic Waste is also known as “Post-Industrial Plastic Waste”. Pre-Consumer and Post-Industrial Plastic Waste are almost similar types of waste but with quite a few minor differences. Post-Consumer Plastic Waste is mainly generated after the Industrial Manufacturing procedure.
- Post-Consumer Plastic Waste.
Post-consumer Plastic Waste is the waste that is collected after being used by the consumers or customers. Post-Consumer waste includes different types of materials like Plastic Materials and Products, but Multi-layered plastic is mostly found in Post-Consumer Plastic Waste.
Post-consumer Plastic Waste consists of a list of numbered plastic products that are discarded after being used or consumed by the consumers or customers. Plastic Products like packages for food products, detergent containers, single-use food containers, plastic cups, glasses, bottles, and various other things as well are consisted of these Post-Consumer Plastic Waste Products.
Are Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste Recyclable?
Yes, of course. Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste are recyclable materials and can be fully used until their end-of-life disposal stage. Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste hold various advantages and benefits after they are Recycled.
Recycling this Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste is sort of a little difficult procedure, but we the Shakti Plastic Industries are pros at Recycling the most difficult types of plastics.
The procedures for Recycling this Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste are explained in 5 easy and simple steps as follows:
- The Assemblage of Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste:
The Assembling or Collection of this Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste is executed with the help of our Safai Sathis and The Shakti Plastic Industries has strong built connections and tie-ups with different Municipal corporations escalated overall the country. And with this, we also create employment opportunities overall nation.
- Baling and Segregation of Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste:
Baling this Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Littered Waste is a procedure where the collected waste is piled up into bundles, also known as Bales. These Bales are then used for easy transfer of all the trash that is collected. This garbage is then transferred to our main recycling factory.
After being transferred the waste is then unloaded. And this Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic waste is Segregated or Separated according to its material type and color by our skilled segregator employees. This Segregation process helps make this Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic easy to recycle.
- Washing/Cleaning and Drying this Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste.
Before the waste gets recycled, certain additional impurities need to be cleaned or removed from this Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste for getting better quality recycled products. Impurities like dust, soil, food waste, oils, glass shreds, and many other things consist of this pre-and post-consumer plastic waste. So, these impurities are removed with the help of a machine called “Washing Line”. This washing line contains water and rotating spinners that remove the impurities. With the hydro pump, the impurities easily get removed from the plastic.
After removing the impurities, the waste needs to be dried or dehydrated with the help of a “Drier”. This drier removes all the additional moisture from the washed and cleaned waste and with this, the plastic waste gets ready to be passed into the Agglomeration process.
- Agglomeration and Granulation of Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste.
Later on, this segregated and Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste further reaches the Agglomeration process. Agglomeration is a step where the segregated waste is unloaded in a machine called the “Agglomerator”. This Agglomerator converts Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste into small bits that make it easier for be transforming waste into Granules.
Granulation is a procedure in which the Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic waste is changed into thick recycled plastic strings that are cut up into small pieces. This Recycled Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic waste granules are used for making various environment-friendly products that can help in improving and converting our country’s infrastructure as well as economy to an advanced level.
- Production of Recycled Products from Granules.
The last and final phase in the recycling of Pre- and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste is the manufacturing of Recycled Products from recycled granules. These Recycled Products can be recycled over and over and are sustainable for supporting our natural environment. Products like benches, tables, bottle caps, containers, ladders, chairs, flower pots, etc, can be made with these Recycled Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste granules.
We the Shakti Plastic Industries, assure you of giving you an output that can surely become an advantage for supporting our present as well as the future.
In what terms are Recycled Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic products benefiting?
Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste are two very different things that are comprised in landfills. But, both these types of waste are extremely beneficial for society and the Environment if properly managed or after being recycled. Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste are Recyclable and are Sustainable as many times as possible.
Pre-Consumer Plastic Waste also known as Post-Industrial Plastic Waste and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste can become very significantly useful for producing various things like:
- Recycled Products that support the Circular Economy.
- Builds a strong and sustainable infrastructure of the nation.
- Reduces Waste from landfills and makes the surroundings clean.
- Creation of a Sustainable Brand.
- Post-Industrial Waste and Post-Consumer Waste are low cost and within budget.
Not only this but, there are more than 7 types of plastic being used in this world. Which can be turned into something valuable that can become a reason for changing someone’s life.
And we the Shakti Plastic Industries are always here to provide that change and to make our country stronger and better.
