Image of post in post detailed view


- Plastic imports in Cameroon: 121.5 million tonnes per year
- Recycling rate: 0.21%
- Plastic producers in Cameroon: about 100, including OK PLAST CAM producing 24 million tonnes and PRIMA DEE LITE producing 10 million tonnes per year
- Types of polymers present in Cameroon: PET, HDPE, PVC, LDPE, PP, PI, and PS
- Average amount of plastic in circulation in Cameroon: over 120 million tonnes per year
- Challenges in conducting research: confidentiality of information on domestic plastic production, refusal to collaborate or share information, lack of knowledge on chemical additives, non-compliance with labeling principles for plastic products
- Recommendations: increase the cost of managing single-use plastics, support recycling initiatives, provide means of protection against toxins in plastics, ratify the Basel Amendment.
