Plasteax methodology explanations

Plasteax is a comprehensive database providing detailed insights into waste management practices in different countries, encompassing specific polymers, applications, and products.

Plasteax prioritizes transparency and offers access to the methodology used to develop the waste management data. Given the complexity of the methodology, a series of videos has been developed to aid in comprehending the methodology behind Plasteax and the types of data it provides.

Where is Plasteax data coming from?

This video provides a comprehensive understanding of the intricate process behind Plasteax data generation, emphasizing two distinct approaches. Firstly, the top-down approach involves the meticulous derivation of a mass balance from extensive literature reviews, robust databases, and sophisticated modeling techniques. Secondly, the bottom-up approach emphasizes the insights gathered from comprehensive interviews with local stakeholders, alongside information sourced from various databases.
