RECYCLING: 

RECYCLING Presented by: ASHA SUSAN PHILIP

INTRODUCTION: 

INTRODUCTION Recycling involves processing used materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from land filling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" waste hierarchy.

RECYCLING: 

RECYCLING Recyclable materials include many kinds of glass, paper, plastic, and electronics. Materials to be recycled are either brought to a collection center or picked up from the curbside, then sorted, cleaned, and reprocessed into new materials bound for manufacturing. Recycling of a material would produce a fresh supply of the same material—for example, used office paper would be converted into new office paper.

PLASTIC RECYCLING: 

PLASTIC RECYCLING Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastics and reprocessing the material into useful products, sometimes completely different in form from their original state. For instance, this could mean melting down soft drink bottles and then casting them as plastic chairs and tables. Typically a plastic is not recycled into the same type of plastic, and products made from recycled plastics are often not recyclable.

EXAMPLES OF PLASTIC RECYCLING: 

EXAMPLES OF PLASTIC RECYCLING The easiest and most common plastics to recycle are made of polyethylene terephthalate (PETE). Once it has been processed by a recycling facility, PETE can become fiberfill for winter coats, sleeping bags and life jackets. It can also be used to make bean bags, rope, car bumpers, tennis ball felt, combs, cassette tapes, sails for boats, furniture and, of course, other plastic bottles.

GLASS RECYCLING: 

GLASS RECYCLING Glass recycling is the process of turning waste glass into usable products. Glass waste should be separated by chemical composition, and then, depending on the end use and local processing capabilities, might also have to be separated into different colors. Glass recycling is the process of taking old glass products and turning them into new, reusable glass products. Recycling old glass uses 40% less energy than manufacturing it from new.

EXAMPLES OF GLASS RECYLING: 

EXAMPLES OF GLASS RECYLING The glass component in municipal waste is usually made up of bottles , broken glassware , light bulbs and other items. Not all glass is manufactured through the same process, so that is why light bulbs, dishes and window glass can not be recycled. The main glass recyclable products are: Beverage containers Food jars

PAPER RECYCLING: 

PAPER RECYCLING Paper recycling is the process of recovering waste paper and remaking it into new paper products. There are three categories of paper that can be used as feedstock for making recycled paper: mill broke, pre-consumer waste, and post-consumer waste. The industrial process of removing printing ink from paper fibers of recycled paper to make deinked pulp is called deink.

EXAMPLES OF PAPER RECYCLED: 

EXAMPLES OF PAPER RECYCLED Examples of paper that can be recycled or reused: Envelopes Gift wrap Invoices and receipts Magazines and newspapers Telephone directories Junk mail Cardboard boxes and shoe boxes

NUCLEAR FUEL RECYCLING: 

NUCLEAR FUEL RECYCLING Nuclear fuel recycling, which involves separating the uranium and plutonium from spent nuclear fuel for reuse in the fabrication of new fuel , has the potential to reclaim most of the unused energy in spent fuel.

NOKIA PHONE RECYCLING: 

NOKIA PHONE RECYCLING If every Nokia user recycled just one unused phone at the end of its life, together we would save nearly 80,000 tonnes of raw materials . Nokia has launched a “Take Back” Program in India where it is asking users to recycle their old phones and its accessories. Nokia wants to create awareness that electronic gadgets should be recycled properly and has also set up various Recycle Bin s.

NOKIA PHONE RECYCLING: 

NOKIA PHONE RECYCLING plant a tree for every handset dropped in such boxes thus making a step towards green environment. Nokia had committed to plant a tree sapling for every handset, of any brand, dropped for recycling by the consumers . Nokia has tied up with a few organisations for this plantation .
