EPCA ’19: Indonesia to start up new R-PET plant in Q1 ’20


BERLIN (ICIS)–Indonesia is expected to start
up a new recycled polyethylene terephthalate
(R-PET) recycling plant in the first quarter of
2020, an executive from French industrial
conglomerate Veolia said on Tuesday.

The bottle-to-bottle R-PET plant has a 25,000
tonne/year capacity, said Veolia senior
executive vice president Patrick Labat at the
European Petrochemical Association (EPCA)
annual conference.

This is the second project of the Alliance to End Plastic
Waste
(AEPW) in Indonesia.

AEPW, which is a group of global companies,
including Veolia, was launched in January this
year to promote the circular economy.

The group has also joined a project to improve waste managed and
collection in the Indonesian island of
Bali
, in partnership with Project STOP
(Stop Ocean Plastics).

The EPCA annual meeting runs in Berlin on 6-9
October.
