TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Coca Cola Amatil Indonesia signed a Head of Agreement with Dynapack Asia, a packaging company, to build a recycling facility that is claimed to be the world’s most sophisticated.

“It’s our step in realizing the sustainability of the environment,” Coca Cola Indonesia CEO Kadir Gunduz said in a press release on Wednesday, May 20.

The facility will recycle low-quality Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) wastes into high-quality PET, which will be food grade.

Kadir claimed the use of recycled plastic can reduce the amount of resin in new plastics. In 2020, companies are predicted to use around 25,000 tons of plastics.

Besides Coca Cola, Dynapack, as a rigid plastic company and the biggest packaging company in Southeast Asia and China, also signed an agreement with Ellen McArthur Foundation to facilitate the use of 25 percent of recycled resin of packaging products in 2025.

“This is our responsibility to the environment,” said Dynapack Asia CEO, Tirtadjaja Hambali.
