Coca-Cola Amatil Reaches Agreement to Construct New PET Recycling Plant in Indonesia

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia has entered into an agreement with Dynapack Asia towards construction of a new state-of-the-art bottle-to-bottle grade Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) recycling facility in Indonesia.

Mr. Kadir Gunduz, President Director of Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia stated that the agreement is a major step towards the company becoming self-sustaining in the use of plastic materials. Furthermore, it would ensure a closed-loop for plastic beverage packaging in the country. The setting up of the plant would reduce the usage of new plastic resin by the company by approximately 25,000 tonnes per year by 2022. The project is also aimed at supporting Indonesia’s ambitious plan to achieve 70% reduction in the nation’s marine plastic debris by 2025.

As per the agreement, both the parties will initially work together through a proof of concept phase. Further to this, the agreements will be formalized and an outline of the intended program will be provided.

Dynapack has been a long-term packaging partner of Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia, in several initiatives involving collection and recycling of beverage containers.
