Trash VS Clean Cities
Mother nature is sending SOS alerts but no one is responding.
Our world is floating over million of tons of trash and garbage. We are facing pollution crisis that will affect not only the human being but also all the living creatures on planet Earth.
According to Ocean Conservancy organization, 95% of the trash is submerged in the oceans and seas and what we see on the sea's surface is only 5%. This threatens many species with extinction.
“At this rate, we would expect nearly one ton of plastic for every three tons of fish in our oceans by 2025 — an unthinkable number with drastic economic and environmental consequences,” says Nicholas Mallos, director of Ocean Conservancy’s marine debris program.
Garbage and plastics are now a global threat. Many countries are facing lots of problems because of the garbage waste and their way in order to get rid of it.
For example, the people of Lebanon staged demonstrations against their government in order to solve the garbage issue.
Lebanon is drowning in its waste by tons of trash.
On the other hand, there are countries that began to take serious actions towards solving the trash problem. They managed this crisis wisely with strategic solutions. The keyword towards the solution of this crisis is " Recycling and Re-usage".
Singapore tends to recycle their waste and reuse it again in different ways. They reduce their waste by almost 90% and incinerates about 8200 tons of garbage per day. The aim behind the incineration is to transform the landfill into different sources of power. Nowadays, the incineration plants supply 900 homes daily with 2500 MWh of energy each day. Reusable metals are now recovered in Singapore which can be sold for a modest profit.
South Korea has invented a smarter way to the incineration process. South Korea has built a whole new smart city that its people won't see the garbage trucks on its streets, Songdo. Is that possible? Yes, of course.
But how? Through underground pipes my friend. The city's trash will be sucked into the third zone automated waste collection plant using underground pipes. Once trash reaches the facility, the garbage is automatically recycled, burned for energy, or buried deep underground.
Until your city can build this third zone automated waste collection plant, what can you do?
