We are delighted to say that Re>Pal has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a trial of waste with a view to signing, if the testing is successful, a long-term purchase agreement with PT Aalborg Industrie Indonesia a Jakarta based company.
Pak Tenno Sujarwanto commented “Aalborg is looking forward to working with Re>Pal in developing our plastic waste recycling abilities, some plastic waste we process will become syngas and gasoline using Aalborg technology and some plastic waste we send to Re>Pal to process into plastic pallets. Industrial scale recycling is only just starting in Indonesia. More than 60 tonnes of plastic potential per day will be sent to Re>Pal under a long-term purchase agreement; one of the first agreements for this type of material in the country.
We see a lot of opportunity in developing our waste management program with West Java, Central Java and Jakarta Governments. Aalborg is looking forward to working with our partners to help the government realise its plans to remove a substantial amount of plastic waste from our land, rivers and oceans.”
Re>Pal will be able to purchase up to 60 tons per day of processed recycled plastic. Aalborg sources waste through a gate fee dumping agreement with the Jakarta Provincial Government. When fully implemented the agreement will deliver further and cost savings to the business and the considerable benefit of raw material supply stability ensuring improved ability for production planning. The plastic will be cleaned by Aalborg and delivered dry to Re>Pal this arrangement will help reduce the lower value plastic waste in Jakarta, which is where the bulk of waste lies.
