Why is silica gel an eco-friendly material?

- Mar 19, 2018-

The world produces 490 million tons of garbage each year, and China produces about 150 million tons of municipal waste every year. The population of urban areas in China is about 152 million tons of garbage, and the harmless treatment volume is 94 million tons, and the harmless treatment rate is 62%. Rural garbage has a lower rate of harmless treatment.

What is garbage harmless treatment?

At present, urban wastes mainly use methods such as sanitary landfill, composting, and incineration. Most of the urban wastes are piled and simply disposed in landfills. Sanitary landfills, mechanized composting, and incineration are also some of the applications. The incineration technology is the most effective way for garbage to be harmless, reduced, and resource-recycling, and is the development mode of future garbage disposal.

The silica gel formula mSiO2·nH2O (Silica gel; Silica) is a highly active adsorbent material, which is amorphous, insoluble in water and any solvent, non-toxic and odorless, chemically stable, except for strong alkali and hydrofluoric acid. Reacts with any substance. Silica gel does not produce odor, poison, residue is a non-toxic white powder. Therefore, filling silica gel and burning it will not harm the environment. In addition, due to the high recovery value of silica gel, it is rarely discarded. In summary, silicone is an excellent environmental protection material. It is worthy of being widely used in daily necessities. Silica gel products made from silica gel not only protect people's health, but also reduce the pressure on the environment. The more we use environmentally-friendly materials, the healthier the Earth will be, and the environment we live in will be more suitable for human habitation! Silicone will not only bring us products, but also bring us a beautiful environment.
