A new product, Green House Plastic, is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Its popularity is largely due to its ability to decompose. The product is made from a combination of biodegradable plastics and artificial intelligence-powered recycling machines. But how will this product affect the environment? Here’s a closer look. Also, learn about the benefits of green energy points offered by Alipay.
If we want to reduce the use of non-degradable plastics in our world, we need to look to the companies like Alibaba. Alibaba has the power to set the rules for the world by changing consumer and seller behaviors and providing incentives for more efficient packaging. It can use its massive purchasing power to promote organic-based materials and rural enterprises that fill empty space.
Alibaba announced plans to use more biodegradable greenhouse plastic in its packaging. This initiative will help Alibaba reduce its environmental impact and reduce the costs it incurs. Environmentalists have criticized Alibaba’s move to use biodegradable materials in their packaging. But Alibaba will ship at least 1 billion parcels this year and will continue to expand its environmental focus. The company has also launched hybrid and fully electric vehicles for deliveries, tape-free boxes, electronic invoices, and uses biodegradable materials in its shipping.
When consumers think of bioplastics, they typically picture an industrial process. This process is far more difficult for bioplastics to degrade. Instead of decomposing in a landfill, bioplastics must be processed in industrial composting facilities. This means that most biodegradable greenhouse plastic is disposed of in landfills, which is an over-burdened landfill site. Bioplastics also cause greenhouse gas emissions. Methane is 23 times more potent than carbon dioxide, which is the main culprit in climate change.
Artificial intelligence-powered recycling machines
In order to help fight the plastic waste problem, Alibaba has joined forces to launch a giant recycling system for greenhouse-gas generating packaging. It’s part of a program called “Waste-Free World,” which acknowledges China’s national plastic management scheme and the circular economy, and aims to eliminate plastic waste.
The recycling machine uses advanced AI technology to automatically determine which plastic bottles are recyclable and which ones are not. A customer simply scans a QR code on the machine, deposits their empty bottles into the recycling bin, and the machine does the rest. These machines automatically identify the plastic bottle type and store it for reuse, thereby saving customers’ time and money. The recycling machine also works with different kinds of recycling centers, so customers don’t have to worry about transporting their waste bottles.
This smart recycling bin uses an AI-based trash identification applet developed by Ant Financial. It can identify different types of trash and sort them automatically by using an integrated speech assistant and environmental protection knowledge bases. This automated recycling system will improve recoverability and solve the problems of disposing recyclable trash in large cities.
Reverse vending machines that accept used beverage containers have been designed to collect aluminum cans and beverage bottles. These machines will recognize their contents and then issue discounts or digital coupons to the end-user. The company has partnered with several companies.
Waste-Free World logistics machines will enable a circular economy for plastic waste by pre-sorting plastic packaging into grades. Pre-sorting plastic bottles will improve the quality of recycled products. In addition to saving landfill space, the machines will contribute to the circular economy. For now, however, many obstacles will need to be overcome. One of these challenges is getting consumers to prepare their recyclables correctly.
Green Energy Points
The company has also launched an Ant Forest. The initiative aims to promote low-carbon living and has recently introduced a new option to restore coastal ecosystems. Through these initiatives, they hope to attract more users to support green initiatives and contribute to marine conservation and biodiversity protection. These efforts have already been backed by several environmental NGOs, with over 600 million users having helped plant trees in arid regions.
In a previous version of the platform, users could earn virtual “green energy points” and donate them to environmental projects. The app allows users to pay their utility bills online instead of paper invoices, and order food delivery without plastic packaging or disposable cutlery. Additionally, users can buy energy-efficient home appliances from partner brands.
