Our government has acted in an intelligent way to ban only the problematic single use polyethene
The chairperson of the Chamber of Chemical Industries declared that a new project for converting gas to olefins to produce polypropylene, will be established with an annual production capacity of 600,000 tonnes, and polyethene
with a production capacity of 400,000 tonnes per year.
Bacteria and fungi of various genera have been implicated previously in the biodegradation of polyethene
albeit the low rates.
Referred to by UPM as 'Syscon' conveyors, the simplistic 'groove' design with side channels made from High Molecular, Weight Polyethene
(HMWPE), appealed to Pacepacker, because it can be deployed in hygienic food processing areas.
The sample was collected from Sahom's leachate pond by using 5.5 L Polyethene
bottle (PET) and was stored at 4[degrees]C to prevent biodegradation from June to August, 2014.
Finally the powder was stored in polyethene
bottles for further investigations.
Fresh leaves and leaf litters of Gmelina arborea were collected from a six-year-old tree and stored in polyethene
bags in a moisture-free atmosphere.
All of the samples were air-dried at room temperature and sieved by a 2 mm mesh and stored in polyethene
plastic bags for subsequent sample analysis.
The fruit was collected into polyethene
bags that had holes in order to allow for free circulation of air.
Metal bins, earthen bins and polyethene
bags were used for storage of grains.
Resulting coated films were either directly characterised or assessed after lamination with polyethene
(PE, 20 [micro]m) as a sealing layer using Liofol UK3640/UK 6800by Henkel KGaA (Dusseldorf) as an adhesive.
Soil samples were collected in sterile polyethene
bags by scooping upto a depth of 2- 5cms with the help of sterile disposable spoon.
