PLASTICS WASTE MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE (PWMI)

Summary

The Plastics Waste Management Institute (PWMI) was founded in 1971 as the plastics industry's response to local governments' claims that the increase of plastics was a cause of trouble. PWMI currently receives $5 million per year from thirty petrochemical companies and $400,000 per year from MITI. PWMI employs twenty-one staff engineers who provide research and development in plastics waste recycling, pyrolysis, and incineration, and also provide surveys and public relations.
