Under the second stage, the Navy expects to expand and share the new technology island wide through the Naval Community Welfare Project and raise awareness among the masses on proper garbage disposal and its potential as a useful resource.Under the third stage studies are to be carried out with the assistance of the Naval Research and Development Unit to identify methods of disposing non polythene/plastic waste and also to produce a polythene/plastic recycling machine applying injection molding technology.
