UNEP has a series of waste management related publications. Among those one can find two Guides related to plastic waste. One guide presents assessment guidelines with the aimto raise awareness and assist on the collection and analysis of data to generate a baseline on waste plastics to further develop viable business propositions for converting waste plastics into fuels. The second guide is a compendium of technologies for processing plastic waste and its aim is to assist in selecting the appropriate techniology for the conversion  of plastic waste to solid, liquid and gaseous fuels.
