From practically zero in the fifties, human kind today consumes greater than one hundred and fifty million tons of plastics. We truly live in a ‘plastic Age’. As a part of this, the study was conducted in CFTRI, Mysore, from March to May and tried to degrade the plastics as far as possible .During this period analysis was carried out to know the characteristics of each plastics is LDPE, HDPE and PP. The sample which was exposed to photo degradation and compositing. By this small change was observed during a month. After analysis the results are compared. By the results it is concluded that degradation of plastics are possible by maintaining suitable conditions over a period.</p>
