Praia, Jun 26 (Inforpress) – The Association for the Development of São Francisco (ADSF) president, Praia, stated that in August a plastic recycling plant will be installed to help preserve the environment and create new economic opportunities.
Speaking to Inforpress, João Ferreira said that the installation of the referred factory will be carried out in partnership with the Raiz Azul Association and the Cabo Verdean Ecotourism Association, stressing that they are analyzing into which materials these plastics will be transformed in a sustainable way.
“We already have the financing guaranteed, the preparations for setting up this factory are in the final stage. We are planning to start work in August with the first recycling test and we will soon decide whether they will be transformed into tiles, buckets or potted plants, that is, the most sustainable option”, he said.
As he explained, one of the reasons that motivated the Association for the Development of São Francisco to install a plastics recycling plant has to do with the amount of plastics in the forest and in the locality, stating that until now this material has not received adequate treatment.
