If it is now expected, by 2025 people may need such a large "lineup" to transport garbage around the world, and this is only a day of "production." Scholars warn that people must make changes and the outlook is not optimistic.
It is estimated that the world's population is about 3.5 million tons of garbage per day. The expert team, led by Daniel Hoornweg, published an article in the journal Nature, saying that if humans do not change their behavior, they will add 11 million tons of household waste every day by 2100. They commented that the rate of waste growth has exceeded other environmental damage factors, including greenhouse gases. In China, South Korea, Brazil and Mexico and other countries, some garbage dumps per day more than 10,000 tons. According to the Chinese media quoted official figures reported that only one in Beijing in 2010 to recover garbage reached 467 million tons, landfill waste 6.35 million tons. Of the more than 600 cities in China, two-thirds are "surrounded" by landfills.
Experts warn that the impact of this situation on the planet is now clearly visible, such as the huge garbage in the ocean whirlpool. "And we are making the amount of rubbish continue to grow more than twice." The possibility of improvement is the following: the slowdown in world population growth, the improvement of urban resource management and the upgrading of packaging materials. Experts believe that if we can achieve the above objectives, "will give the environment, the economy and society to bring huge benefits."
At present most of the rubbish from Europe and the United States developed countries. Experts believe that by 2050 or so Europe and the United States daily life will reach the peak of the amount of garbage. As a result of the slowdown in population growth and technological progress, the amount of waste in these countries will gradually diminish. It may be time for individual cities to achieve this goal: for example, San Francisco, Calif.-based has planned to reduce the amount of waste to zero by 2020. "Nature" magazine's article that the current local 55% of the garbage has been recycled. It can be recycled through Styrofoam hot melting machine, its a good helper to deal with the plastic.
