Can current recycling technologies & waste collection systems in Asia meet circular economy objectives?


There is no denying that plastics plays an important role for the society. Banning plastics and straws is not the solution.

Effective waste management closely supported by a strong recycling industry is the way forward towards keeping plastics in an effective and efficient Circular Economy model.

In April 2019, Plastic Energy, a company with a unique process to transform traditionally non-recyclable plastic waste into hydrocarbon products and back into plastic, reached an agreement with the province of West Java (Indonesia) to build five chemical recycling plants.

This comes at a time when Indonesia, a country which is second only to China for leaking plastic into the sea, is grappling to reduce plastic pollution in particular plastics reaching the ocean.

The Indonesian government has made addressing the plastic waste issue a priority, with an ambitious commitment to reduce marine plastic debris by 70 per cent by 2025.

All across Asia, countries from Thailand to Malaysia has tightened the doors to import plastic and electronic waste, implementing Zero Waste campaigns and finding solutions to improve their waste management industry.

Indonesia is still in its early stages of development, and as such infrastructure development still faces a range of challenges.

In Malaysia, Waste Management Association chairman Ho De Leong stresses that increasing the recycling rate isn’t enough. Malaysia urgently needs "proper waste treatment facilities and infrastructure." ~ The Star, 16th July 2019.

Indonesia prepares EPR regulation to reduce plastic wastes

Posted on : 06 Aug, 2019

 
Indonesian government aims to reduce marine waste (mostly plastics) by 70 percent by 2025 and plans to spend $1 billion over the next five years for the same.
 
The government is also planning to introduce an extended producer responsibility (EPR) regulation by end of 2019 – that will make consumer goods manufacturers more responsible for managing waste from their product packaging.
 
The new regulation is expected to be applied to processed foods and beverages manufacturers as well as retailers and supermarkets that are dependent on plastic packaging for their products.
 
These businesses would be expected to come up with a 10-year plan with details of how much waste (generated from their products) will be collected and recycled – via their own recycling facilities or partner with existing facilities. They will be also expected to provide drop boxes for consumers to dispose of product waste for processing. The EPR regulation is also expected to mandate these business to include more recycled plastics in their product packaging.
 
An EPR requirement is already stated in the Waste Management Act of 2008, but it hasn’t been easy to enforce.
 
There are already discussions among the Environment Ministry, the Ministry of Industry, the Ministry of Trade and business associations to design the roadmap for waste reduction by producers.
 
For more details on Indonesia’s plastics recycling efforts, attend CMT’s RecyclePlast Asia on 13-14 November, 2019, in Bali.
