Dr Dr. Knights,
I would like to know if UNEP will have an event at the UN SDGs conference to be held in New York on 5-9 June 2017.
I am involved in the consortium of the MARINA project fundend by Horizon 2020 and we are planning to have a side-event for SDG 14 but perhaps some internal support is needed. Have you some useful suggestions?
Thank you very much and best regards

Greetings!! Sir, how do I convert plastic municipal waste into fuel or any other useful byproducts? The area I stay in is full of municipal waste littered in every corners. I want to make sure my town is clean n free of garbage dump sites. Please help me with some ideas so that I can go ahead and make use of these waste. I am thinking of a small scale industry to convert these waste into useful products.

Greeting Bhargav,
I am not an expert on municipal waste but I am aware that there is a process called plastic cracking which was developed to facilitate the recycling of plastic wastes into gasoline-range hydrocarbons and other useful petrochemical materials. More information about the process and other processes can be found online. I wish you many successes in starting up a small-scale industry to address the so issues relating to municipal waste.
