Plastic Stokes Raging Thirst

Given the large volume of water consumed for the production of plastic, reducing the use of the material can help alleviate the country's gravest ecological crisis, namely water shortage, an official with the Department of Environment said. 
A subcategory of petrochemical industries, plastic production is a highly water-intensive process which involves a huge cycle of consumption from raw material extraction to the final product for the market. 
Ali Moridi, director for water and soil at DOE, said that cutting down on the use of plastic is more essential today in Iran in view of the current condition of water resources and the prolonged drought affecting the country, ILNA reported. 
The official pointed out that the huge hidden water in plastic products is an added issue to "the harms caused by the mismanagement of plastic waste". 
According to Moridi, DOE has prepared a set of regulations for reducing plastic consumption which is now awaiting approval by the Cabinet.
