Global climate crisis: Coal can “stay good” next to plastic – Last Minute Technology News

In a study by the organization Beyond Plastics of Bennington College in the USA it was found that the annual carbon-based emissions amount of at least 232 million average size.

The research report said the plastics industry’s reported emissions increased 10 million tonnes in 2020 compared to 2019, while construction of 12 plants to join the industry continues and 15 plants are in the pipeline.

The research found that the new plants will emit more than 40 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually by 2025 and that the impact of climate change on the U.S. plastics industry will exceed that of coal-fired power plants by 2030.

The scientists involved in the study said it was gratifying that 65 percent of the country’s coal-fired power plants recently closed, but that the surge in plastic production was showing these gains.

Scientists found that the issue of plastic production and disposal, which is a huge environmental problem, has neither found its deserved place on the agenda of the US Congress, which has long debates on the infrastructure budget, nor of the United Nations Climate Change Conference. which will start in Scotland on October 31st.
