No doubt the manufacture and widespread use of plastics has caused innumerable problems. Our drainage systems, our water courses are being clogged with wrappers, shopping bags and what not. But is the answer, an outright ban on them?
Let’s admit that plastics have made life cheaper and simpler. To put an outright ban on them is not only impossible but counter productive as well. The answer to plastic pollution may be found in RESEARCH and RECYCLING!
Certainly, some recycling of plastic waste was started from the time plastics were first introduced. However, with the passage of time a plethora of plastic waste came up which could not be easily recycled.
This problem was solved on 14th January 2018 at an open exhibition held at the Karachi Press Club where each and every kind of hitherto non recyclable plastic waste like Metallic film (wrappers in common parlance) and Thermopole waste were shown reused in a brand new technology called Chandi Technology.
Chandi Technology is comparable to the mobile technology which allows the user access to various services by the mere pressing of different buttons. However, the functions and services of the Chandi Technology are many more and all encompassing i.e modular. A Chandi building can be transformed into a water reservoir, beds, tables, chairs and vice versa in no time. Now we can think in terms of putting up high tech mobile shops, mobile universities, mobile factories etc, overnight!
The entire exercise of producing and marketing of the Chandi technology will result in all kinds of plastic waste being carefully collected and reused as essential raw material for quality goods. This will ensure that non bio degradable waste is: a) not burnt b) nor thrown into drains and water courses.
IDEALLY, THIS WILL RETURN MOTHER EARTH TO HER PRISTINE STATE!
The Chandi Technology apart from being the solution to plastic pollution is in fact a gift of the Almighty for the entire world just as he gifted the mobile phone and many other inventions to us.
