Do P2P colleagues think the refusal of China to continue accepting our plastic for recycling etc & the UK & Europe having to find other methods of disposal might adversely effect any current borrowers?
Also, might it open up opportunities for investment??
Presently there are a number of uses for old plastic, re-use, road material, burning at very high temperatures (so not atmospheric poison apart from CO2), land fill and finally technology to convert back into diesel type fuels/raw plastic materials. (BTW modern burning systems mean that the air comes out cleaner than it went in). Presently a large number of waste burning units being installed across the country and have been for the last 5 years or so.
At the moment it is possible to invest via P2P in burning plants and diesel generating technologies.
Of further interest is bio-degradable plastic plants (NB France has recently changed all supermarkets to this type of bag, which originally the industry said could not be done, amazing what legislation can do....)
