According to INPIA , at the beginning of this meeting, after exchanging news in this field, an article about the works and The negative consequences of high plastic consumption during the corona were presented and the solutions to reduce these injuries were presented.
In this meeting, it was mentioned that despite the emphasis on the restriction or prohibition of production Polymer In many environmental decision-making bodies, we see today that plastic products have become one of the most sought after products in order to combat the spread of the corona virus, and this is an opportunity for the industry. Polymer .
Accordingly, one of the proposed ways is to use materials that are antiseptic or antiviral in the construction of surfaces, or to use materials that inactivate the virus in the production of masks.
It was discussed at the meeting that two campaigns have been launched in the UK to complete the necessary knowledge and implementation techniques.
Due to the high consumption of polymer masks during the coronary period and its consequences, Soon we will face problems such as pollution caused by these masks, and therefore we need innovations in the production of high-consumption products these days, such as masks.
One of the solutions and innovations presented in world-renowned articles is to be able to turn masks into recyclable and recyclable masks.
Today’s masks have limitations, such as not being water-repellent, they are as water-repellent as water droplets, but this is not enough and should be such that in addition to not absorbing water droplets, they also throw it out. Also, these masks are made of PP and if they want to be used again, they must be sterilized, which will change the shape. The daily production rate of these masks is 40 million per day, equivalent to 15,000 tons of waste in the environment.
Most countries have not found a better solution than incineration, which is also harmful to the environment, but if the surface of the mask can be superhydrophobic, they can be reused instead of incinerated.
Above the hydrophobicity of the surface of the masks has two meanings: the surface must be oily and not hydrophilic. It must also have a special topography, ie it must not be completely smooth. These surfaces become self-cleaning, in which case the virus droplets not only do not spread on this surface, but also remove the contaminants and take them to the environment outside the mask.
Creating a thin graphene surface with the same specific topography can achieve this goal to some extent. This method is industrialized and can be implemented on an industrial scale, but it also has challenges that need to be addressed.
Also, due to their black color, these masks reach a temperature above 80 degrees and are disinfected as soon as they are exposed to sunlight.
In addition, the graphene surface and the material of these masks have the ability to desalinate from water, so they can be used again.
Of course, these types of masks face challenges, such as not having a virus on the mask and throwing it into space, although at a speed and distance less than breathing and sneezing and coughing with protection from others to the carrier patient may be inconsistent. .
In the continuation of this meeting, it was also emphasized that the National Association of Industries of Iran Polymer has tried In many cases, be the pioneer of decision-making and do not delay the decisions of the Ministry of Silence. So far, it has gained good power and even has a representative in the market regulation working group and has an effective presence in many important decision-making forums.
The meeting also discussed the conference on innovation, time, structure and content and chapters of the conference.
The conference will be held unanimously in January.
It was also emphasized on promoting and promoting the innovation industry, which in order to achieve it, the innovations of the industry should be Polymer Studied and compared in the world and in Iran and obtained complete information, as well as strengthened cooperation between industry and academia.
The need to connect innovative companies with each other and present and introduce their products and realize the construction of a technology park for industry was also mentioned.
At the end of the meeting, points and issues were raised regarding the amendment of the executive regulations of the Waste Management Law.
