Considering that pandemic-driven surge in plastic consumption is expected to further increase (Klemeš et al. 2020) as well as the low plastic recycling rate of the Philippines this may be an opportune time to review the ban on incineration in order to address increasing plastic consumption. Faithful implementation of these laws is likewise
According to the IPCC waste hierarchy waste should be first avoided and re-used followed by recycling energy recovery and disposal. However the overwhelming majority of plastic waste (PW) generated globally is currently disposed of landfilled or simply lost to the environment.
In the examined case two thermochemical processes have been used for the flows (polyolefins-based flow and commingled plastic waste flow) resulting from the sorting of a typical plastic waste coming from and commercial separate collection a) a plastic-to-oil process based on pyrolysis of polyolefins and fractionation of obtained vapor products b) a gasification process of the
Plastic is one of the world s most-used materials. Technically sophisticated lightweight and cheap plastics suit a broad spectrum of uses. The problem with plastic lies not in how it is used which is generally harmless but in end-of-life management of products made from it. Since 1950 close to half of all plastic has ended up in landfill or dumped in the wild and only 9 of used

2. Waste management overview. Even within the EU there are a wide range of waste-management prioritizations for the total municipal solid waste stream (MSW) from those heavily weighted towards landfill to those weighted towards incineration (figure 1)—recycling performance also varies considerably.The average amount of MSW generated in the EU is 520 kg per person per year and
4.3.2 Recycling. Many of the waste items can be recycled. This involves collecting and sorting the discarded materials suitable for recycling. Paper plastic glass and aluminium cans can be recycled.
