Mr. Satish Cheeti

Since inception, we have generated 8.3 billion metric ton of plastics; we have been to dispose of only 2 billion metric tons of 6.3 billion metric ton which still remains in the system and is just 12 times of the weight of all human beings combined in the world.It is the time to come up with strategies to circumvent and to surpass this problem. For that, we use the concept of ‘UpCycling’ – not the ‘Recycling’. Because, in recycling, at some point of time, we need to dispose-off the waste. Recycling does not eliminate the issue, instead it’s just going to defer. However, in UpCycling, the waste is brought back as a product into the main stream.
