The world’s population consumes 1 million polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles every minute. However, less than half of all purchased plastic bottles were collected for recycling. Only 7% of these bottles are recycled to make new PET bottles. Most plastic bottles ended up in rubbish dumps or in the environment. It is estimated that every year between 5 and 13 billion kilos of plastic waste ends up in the ocean the equivalent of one full rubbish collection lorry every minute. Discuss the current technology to recycles the PET bottles. Give your opinion why the recycle program did not seem really successful to solve the recycle issues of plastic bottles.
