|Participants in the distribution process
||Enterprises collecting and procuring raw materials; polymer processing plants; solid waste landfills, waste sorting complexes and waste transfer stations.
||Enterprises collecting and procuring raw materials; polymer processing plants; solid waste landfills, waste sorting complexes and waste transfer stations; industrial enterprises, trade enterprises and other enterprises, from the activities of which polymer waste is generated; enterprises collecting and procuring raw materials, the population.
|Concentration of most of secondary polymers
||Most of recycled polymers are concentrated in places of accumulation - landfills, authorized and unauthorized dumps.
||Most of recycled polymers are concentrated in waste sorting, waste transfer stations and recycling sites.
|Role and importance of processors in commodity circulation
||Secondary. Plants processing secondary polymeric materials process no more than 15-20% of all produced polymers.
||Main. All the resulting polymeric wastes are recycled.
|Quality of raw materials involved in commodity circulation
||Low. This is due to the high degree of contamination of polymer waste.
||High. This is due to the absence of contamination from the separate collection of waste.
|Origin of the product distribution process
||Commodity distribution originates from landfills, where procurement enterprises extract raw materials suitable for further processing.
||Commodity distribution originates from the population, where polymers undergo the first filtration with separate waste collection.
|Collection as a stage in the distribution process
||Collection of polymeric waste starts from specialized organizations - procurement and production and procurement enterprises, dispersed across many collection points (landfills, dumps).
||Collection of polymer waste starts from the population and housing and communal services. Only a small part of polymers ends up in accumulation and disposal sites (landfills, dumps).
|Stocking as a stage in the distribution process
||Stocking involves the separation of valuable secondary polymers from the general waste stream, which are suitable and economically interesting for processing.
||Stocking assumes inter-separation from already selected polymers.
|Processing as a stage in the distribution process
||In processing polymeric waste, recycling enterprises receive polyethylene terephthalate flakes and granules, as a rule, used to produce other products.
||In processing polymer waste, recycling enterprises receive products suitable for use for their original purpose.
