As a part of our program to help Indonesian companies recycle their waste, I am pleased to say that we have successfully tested waste from Nutrifood Indonesia. Nutrifood is an Indonesian food manufacturer and some of the brands we tested included Lokalete, HiLo, Nutrisari and Diabetamill. The packaging we have recycled was the mixed laminated metallised plastics. We found that we were able to recycle up to 30% of the weight of a pallet with this material with the pallet passing our stringent ISO8611 testing.
I believe that we will see more partnerships with companies as Indonesia ramps up its Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislation and Re>Pal can help companies improve their recovery rate of plastics. Additionally, I think that many companies will be keen to talk to Re>Pal considering that this kind of metallised and laminated plastic waste is generally harder to recycle than single polymer plastics.
