Scientists from the University of Georgia (UGA) have calculated that about 111 million metric tonnes of plastic waste is going to be displaced up to 2030 due to the Chinese import ban. 

The study aimed to calculate the potential global impact of the China ban on the import of non- industrial plastic waste and how it might impact efforts to reduce this material from entering the environment.
