Meeting the PM!

It was with great pleasure that I accepted an invite to attend a BBQ at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta while I was there this month. The Aussies certainly know how to throw a BBQ! It was a great event and to network with many exporters of Australian produce and to also discover many success stories of Australian businesses operating within Indonesia. There is a strong relationship between Indonesia and Australia, [...]

National Geographic features Re>Pal Indonesia

We were delighted to be featured in a National Geographic article on plastic waste discussing the issue specifically regarding Bali.  As you would know, Re>Pal used to have a plant in Bali, this was a successful test plant and following the decision to relocate the factory to Pasuruan in 2016, Bali was closed. Given our connections there and that we do also use waste from Bali, we were featured in this [...]

New 1300×1100 pallet in development

Next month we will be starting a new pallet mold. This is a 1300x1100 sized pallet and is one of the standard sizes for pallets (generally transporting bags). We are looking at the chemical industry for this pallet which generally demands a larger size pallet for transport of their bags. This industry and the food industry too also use square pallets for transport of drums. We are looking to capture a [...]

Danone and Re>Pal in partnership

At our Open Day I am pleased to say that Bu Vera Galuh Sugijanto of Danone-AQUA signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with us, so that Re>Pal can convert the Danone-AQUA OPP plastic label waste into pallets. Under the MOU, Danone-AQUA will be supplying its AQUA label from Danone’s bottle separation facility also in Pasuruan. Where Re>Pal supplies pallets to Danone, these pallets will carry up to a maximum of 25% [...]

Reclaim Recycle Reinvent – Factory Open Day

Instead of Reduce Recycle Reuse, we have repurposed this famous “3R” phrase to represent how Re>Pal adds value and it was with great pleasure that we hosted our open day at the Pasuruan factory for interested partners, clients and also prospective clients. It was great to see the excitement from everyone attending as they saw the reprocessing of the mixed waste stream from raw and dirty plastic into clean, shredded, pelletised [...]

Waste in the news (again)

There doesn’t seem to be a day go by when waste is not in the news. It was encouraging to hear the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison look to set aside A$100m from the Australian Federal Government to #kickstartrecycling infrastructure in Australia and to also support the States in doing so. Hopefully this will lift the amount of plastic waste recycled from the current 12% level in Australia today. Australian originated [...]

For whom the rubbish tolls

While I was in Bangkok for the Siam Cement Group visit, reading the Bangkok Post I came across this article. For me it neatly summarises the challenges in the region on waste collection, politics and the economy. Waste is something that Governments, companies and households need to get right. The debate in Thailand is about increasing the garbage collection fees for households, which as you can see from the article is [...]

RFID testing in Re>Pal pallets a success

Re>Pal recently successfully tested using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags in its pallets at a live test in the Pasuruan factory. RFID technology has been around since the early 1980’s and is an increasingly popular technique for identifying objects. We tested using read-write/ write once passive tags that are then read by a high-powered scanner with the results fed into a warehouse management system (WMS) from the tag provider. We tested [...]
