ZERO MICROPLASTICS : FROM PLASTICS LANDFILL TO ENERGY

Thailand and other Asia and the Pacific countries have been labelled as within the top 10 ocean polluters in the world. Plastics breakdown into micro-plastics and end up in the ocean, easily ingested by numerous marine lives because of their small size, increasing concerns about their negative impact on wildlife and possible toxicity to living organisms, including humans. This will negatively impact sustainable investments on the blue economy and the prosperity of every country as a whole.

PARTNERSHIP ON SUSTAINABILITY WITH NEW INNOVATION TECHNOLOGY

AFMA is in collaboration with NIT to up-cycle landfill plastic that end up as micro-plastic in the Oceans into useful diesel and petrol for the community, for the ocean and for the sustainable development goals. This will provide a solution for single use plastics, micro-plastics by giving incentives for the community to contribute their plastics as raw material to be turned to readily to use oil up to international standards at a competitive price, so the community can enjoy the profit for their children’s education, welfare and eliminate pollution.
