ROGP or Rejects of Glass & Plastics Technology is an innovative approach that repurposes plastics, once labeled as non-recyclable materials due to technical complexity or economy-related issues.

 

__________________

 

Offering a solution that meets technical, environmental and economic requirements for sustainable use of all 80+ types of plastic waste, including mixed plastics, this particular ROGP technology recycles plastics (all 7 major plastic codes) and glass (all types of glass) into a “durable and price competitive new material which has numerous applications”, especially in the construction industry.  

 

__________________

 

Current global challenges with existing recycling technologies include the impossibility to process mixed plastics due to their chemical composition, the need to segregate the materials and establish different recycling lines, the high energy consumption as well as the cost. Moreover, for glass, considered infinitely recyclable, low recycling rates are due to sorting difficulties, transportation obstacles, and expensive processes. On that note, ROGP, operated by Development Inc., is one single technology that can at the same time, recycle all 80+ types of plastics and all types of glass, and generate a composite from the rejects of glass and plastic.

Let's face it.  Along with reusable dog poop bags, this is the sort of plastic waste reduction we need to prevent sea level rise.

I'm not sure but I think if you wear a previously-used condom technically it's adultery. Possibly a little bit gay as well.

^ i’m opposed to the term “wear” when it comes to condoms.

it’s not a fashion accessory like a scarf or a hat.

Didn't they used to have a condom shop in Market Square?
