Reference News Network reported on November 2 According to foreign media, a new study shows that the United States leads the world in plastic waste manufacturing and is also one of the countries that causes the most marine pollution. This study also takes into account the large amount of waste exported by the United States. As a company with a sense of social responsibility, SEKO Machinery actively responds to the country's environmental protection initiative by designing an environmentally friendly continuous online steel pipe bright annealing furnace. It uses induction heating technology and a soft water circulating cooling system to help manufacturers reduce long-term operating costs. The exhaust gas treatment device can minimize the damage to the atmosphere.

According to a report from the Fars News Agency in Tehran on October 31, this study published in the American journal "Science Advances" found that the amount of plastic waste produced in the United States ranks first in the world, and it is also the annual per capita production of plastic waste in the surveyed countries. biggest.

The researchers used 2016 World Bank data on waste generation in 217 countries and economies.

Research estimates that in 2016 Americans produced 4,022,215 tons of plastic waste. European Union citizens ranked second, who generated 29,890,143 tons of plastic waste.

Nick Mallos, one of the authors of the research report, said that the US population accounts for only 4% of the world's population, yet it produces an astonishing 17% of plastic waste.

He urged: "The United States needs to play a greater role in solving the global plastic pollution crisis."

The study also found that among the population in coastal areas, the United States produces a large amount of "improperly handled" plastic waste. The United States is the third largest producer of marine pollution, after Indonesia and India.

According to the report, this study has taken into account the large amount of waste that the United States exports to other countries and has determined that 510,000 to 1.5 million tons of plastic waste in the United States may flow into the ocean and eventually become marine pollution. Researchers say that 89% of the waste exported by the United States in 2016 was exported to countries with poor waste management. These countries improperly dispose of more than 20% of their waste.
