New plastic starts from the source being crude oil. From this crude oil products like petroleum, gas and petrol (nafta) are produced in a refinery. The nafta is the base for the production of new plastics such as ethylene and propylene. For the production of 1 kg new plastic approximately 20 kg of crude oil is used.
The CO2 emission due to this production is substantial which of course is damaging our environment. And this is absolutely unnecessary! We choose recycling and use existing plastics as a source for new plastics. This results in less plastic waste in the environment, less oil use and less CO2 emission.
