A PET bottle recycling plant is to be built bu Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia after it signed a heads of agreement with packaging partner Dynapack Asia.
The two companies will begin a proof of concept phase that will consider the plant’s economic feasibility, size, scale and location, end-to-end requirements and potential integration into each company’s value chains. Once this is complete, the two companies will then set out their vision for the plant.
Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia president director Kadir Gunduz said: “This joint venture represents a real environmental step-change in our move towards a more sustainable approach to plastic and a circular economy by bringing low-quality PET waste back to virgin-quality, food-grade PET, which also echoes The Coca-Cola Company’s ‘World Without Waste’ vision.
“It is a significant step towards Amatil becoming self-sustaining in the plastic materials we use, ensuring a closed-loop for plastic beverage packaging in Indonesia as a whole.”
