During the invention, development, and early production phases of synthetic plastics, only small quantities were produced, and dealing with waste-plastic was relatively controllable. Over the last few decades, however, plastic production has been growing faster than the production of any other materials. Nowadays, an estimated 400 million tons of plastic waste is produced every year, and a large portion of this waste ends up in the natural environment.
