A Look Inside
Main Description
Managing of waste has become a key concern in the protection of the environment, and it is the environmental consequences of the use and extraction of rubber which provides the focus for the two papers published here and presented at a joint UNCTAD and IRSG meeting. Among a number of considerations examined are the costs of the disposal of waste rubber. With 800 million tyres produced annually worldwide and an equivalent number disposed, methods of utilising and recycling of scrap rubber are imperative. The second paper looks at the potential of rubber trees through sustainable plantation and agricultural practices to improve the environment and contribute to the managing of greenhouse gases.
