Intela Yempahla Yepulasitiki Ehlongozwayo Izolimaza Abathengi Ngaphandle Kokunciphisa Ngokuyisisekelo Imfucumfucu Yepulasitiki

Ingabe intela yentela kumapulasitiki angasetshenziswanga asetshenziswa ukwenza imikhiqizo esetshenziswa kanye ingafinyelela umgomo oshiwo wokukhuthaza imakethe ukuthi ithole amapulasitiki agaywe kabusha futhi yehlise inani lemfucuza yepulasitiki?Mhlawumbe ngokwezinga elilinganiselwe, kodwa iza ngezindleko ezinkulu.
USenator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), ohlala ekomitini leSigele Lezezimali Nezemvelo kanye Nezemisebenzi Yomphakathi, wethule umthetho ozobeka imali engama-20 cent-per-pound kumapulasitiki amsulwa.Ngaphansi kwesiphakamiso sakhe, abakhiqizi, abakhiqizi kanye nabangenisa kwamanye amazwe ama-resin epulasitiki amsulwa bazokhokha intela yamasenti ayi-10 ngephawundi ngalinye ngo-2022, nokukhuphuka okukhuphukayo okufika kumasenti angama-20 ngephawundi ngalinye ngo-2024. sebenzisa imikhiqizo, okuhlanganisa ukupakishwa kwepulasitiki, iziqukathi zeziphuzo, izikhwama, nemikhiqizo yesevisi yokudla.I-resin yepulasitiki ehlanzekile ethunyelwa ngaphandle kanye ne-post-consumer resin resined ngeke ikhululwe,” kusho isitatimende esikuwebhusayithi yeWhitehouse.Okunye ukukhululwa, ikakhulukazi ngendlela yezaphulelo, kuhlanganisa imikhiqizo yezokwelapha, iziqukathi noma ukupakishwa kwemithi, imikhiqizo yenhlanzeko yomuntu siqu, noma yikuphi ukupakisha okusetshenziselwa ukuthunyelwa kwezinto eziyingozi, kanye nopulasitiki obusasetshenziswa obusetshenziswa ukwenza imikhiqizo engasebenzisi kanye.
Imali engenayo etholakala ngentela yempahla izongena kulokho iWhitehouse ekubiza ngokuthi i-Plastic Waste Reduction Fund.Leyo mali izoxhasa inqwaba yamaphrojekthi aklanyelwe ukunciphisa udoti wepulasitiki nokukhuthaza ukugaywa kabusha.
“Ukungcoliswa kwepulasitiki kuminyanisa izilwandle zethu, kusheshise ukushintsha kwesimo sezulu, futhi kusongela inhlalakahle yabantu,” kusho uWhitehouse esitatimendeni esilungisiwe."Ngokwayo, imboni yepulasitiki yenze okuncane kakhulu ukubhekana nomonakalo odalwe yimikhiqizo yayo, ngakho-ke lo mthethosivivinywa unikeza imakethe isisusa esinamandla sokulahlwa kwepulasitiki encane kanye nopulasitiki osetshenziswe kabusha," kusho uWhitehouse.
Kuningi okumele sikukhiphe kuleso sitatimende.Akekho ophikisa ukuthi imfucuza endaweni, ipulasitiki noma ngenye indlela, iyichilo futhi idinga ukusukunyelwa.Mayelana nomthelela waso ekuguquguqukeni kwesimo sezulu, noma kunjalo, ngizodinga ukucaciswa okuthile.Uma i-senator ikhuluma ngomthelela wokukhiqizwa kwepulasitiki endaweni, ucwaningo oluningi lubonise ukuthi lisebenzisa amandla amancane kakhulu kunezinye izinto ezifana nengilazi nephepha.Futhi, uyehluleka ukusho ukuthi amapulasitiki awusizo kanjani ekukhiqizeni "izimoto ezingasebenzisi uphethiloli, ukufakwa kwamandla okugcina amandla ekhaya, kanye ne-electronics," njengoba kuphawulwe emazwaneni akhishwe kuleli sonto nguJoshua Baca, iPhini Likamongameli Wepulasitiki e-American Chemistry Council ( ACC).Isitatimende siphinde saveza ukuthi intela yentela "izoqhubeza ukwehla kwamandla emali kaphethiloli ngesikhathi lapho singakwazi khona ukukukhokhela" futhi "ivuna izinsalela zepulasitiki ezivela kwamanye amazwe ezivela ikakhulukazi eChina, ezibiza imisebenzi yaseMelika."
