Polyethylene the bad
Although ethylene can be produced from renewables, polyethylene is mainly made from petroleum or natural gas.
Naphtha is extracted from crude oil. Naphtha is another word for petroleum. By strongly heating up ("crack”) the naphtha, ethylene is released. In a factory, this ethylene is transformed into polyethylene.
One of the main problems of polyethylene is that without special treatment it is not readily biodegradable, and thus accumulates. However, successful experiments are conducted on biodegrading PE. See: Wikipedia.
Polyethylene, the good
Polyethylene is one of the most environment-friendly plastics, since:
- It is an efficient raw material. Per year, not even one percent of the total crude oil and natural gas is used for the global production of polyethylene.
The manufacturing of polyethylene is relatively clean and efficient: the emission of harmful substances is minimal and there is hardly any waste.
- Polyethylene is extremely suitable for recycling. It is a thermoplastic material, which means that it can be melted unlimited times and new products can be made with it. At present, many carrier bags and bin bags are made from recycled polyethylene.
- If polyethylene is collected after use and cannot be processed again, it supplies high-quality fuel for power supply.
- Dishwasher safe
