Karak Star Waste to Energy Solution

About Solution

Jordan has a huge problem with waste management. It is estimated that only Amman produces approximately 4000 tons per day, and double the whole country. It is estimated that plastics make up about 15% of the total solid waste profile. Farmers of the Jordan Valley use Agriculture White & Black Plastic Sheet (AWBPS) to cover Plastic Houses or in place of mulch for newly planted seeds to prevent bird access and to keep hydration to the seedlings. Hundreds of tons of AWBPS are used every day in the Jordan Valley. When the agricultural season ends, farmers plow the land without removing the Plastic Sheet, shredding it into pieces where it becomes an environmental pollution and hazard.Even the torn White Plastic Sheet when removed from Plastic Houses, they are left on the side to deteriorate and shred or end up being burned at times.This shredded agriculture mulch plastic is acknowledged to be a main cause for sheep and goats death. It is an environmental catastrophe all over the Jordan Valley.As a solution to this challenge weintend to create waste plastic collection culture to recycle plastic mulch, waste plastic bags and many other waste plastic into fuel, using the output fuel for its own egg tray operation and selling excess fuel above the needs of the egg tray operation to the needy industries in Al-Hussien bin Abdallah II Industrial Zone or South Amman industrie. Transforming waste into energy we directly positively impact the ecosystem. Adding value to plastic encourages people to collect waste and not to burn it or shred. Furthermore, animal mortality from plastic consumption will also be reduced.There are no other associations present in the project area.Plastic waste is not recycled in Jordan. Collection of plastic is not managed because in Jordan plastic has no value. Karak Star for Recycling will advocate and raise awareness about plastic recycling.
