Trends in Solid Waste Management. The world generates 2.01 billion tonnes of municipal solid waste annually with at least 33 percent of that extremely conservatively not managed in an environmentally safe manner. Worldwide waste generated per person per day averages 0.74 kilogram but ranges widely from 0.11 to 4.54 kilograms.
This helps fulfill the demanding reuse requirements for PA6 and PA66 engineering plastics used in the transportation and electronics industries which is a huge boon to sustainability Manufacturers like automotive suppliers and circuit board makers can now more easily recycle their own waste and regrind materials for the same application.
