BANGLADESH: PADMA cleanup
Riverrecycle Oy and Practical Action seek to transform the lives of informal waste workers by creating a new market for a stream of plastic waste that currently has no commercial value. The project also intends to introduce pyrolysis technology to Bangladesh’s most polluted points of the Padma River. It will integrate waste pickers into a plastic collection and processing workstream, creating new jobs, improving working conditions, and creating commercial value from plastic waste.
