Might even help redistribute some of that scarce wealth.
Ethics and freedoms aside, 🙄, this sounds great in my head but I'm obviously talking out of my rear end right now. This could also easily form a nightmare...
@OrchidMantis9 yeah this spirals real fast. 😅 There are plastics used for medical reasons. Same on construction. I think it could be worth it if say no single use plastics. 🛍️ Everything only reusable. ♻️ Including and especially packaging. Darn things must hold a large percentage of waste.
@zeab Didn't even cross my mind, the types of plastics and their differences 🤔 When imagining mh recycla-reich I was thinking of melting everything down jntk an amorphous shape and using that.
Maybe laws around plastic types for this purpose ckuld have different executions 🤔 And I mean execution in the task kind of way. For now 😏...
recycla-reich 🤣. Love it!
So this would only work, on reduction structures to a composable, if all were the same composites. The thing is, there are many types of plastics you can't do this to. Even if you tried to melt them down, they wouldn't produce amorphous solids. It's why they are considered throwaway plastics and hold a large bulk of waste in the world.
I would love nothing more than to have plastics compositions be entirely amorphous capable like glass. Then we can smelt forever! 🥂
