Bisnis, JAKARTA — PT Amandina Bumi Nusantara (Amandina), a plastic bottle recycling company, has started exporting recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) resin to Europe as part of Indonesia’s efforts in circular economy.

Amandina processes post-consumer PET plastic bottles into Recycled PET resin that can be directly used for food and beverage packaging (food-contact approved).

Suharji Gasal, managing director of PT Amandina Bumi Nusantara, said the company’s plant in Cikarang is the first rPET recycling plant to meet the Indonesian National Standards. “Amandina has successfully met the Indonesian National Standards for quality management systems, achieved ISO 9001 standards, and demonstrated that the quality of the recycled products produced by Amandina is acceptable to the European market,” said Suharji in a press release quoted on Saturday (13/1/2024).

Recycling industries play a crucial role in reducing plastic waste. Currently, the plastic recycling rate in Indonesia is only 7%, with PET plastic reaching a 75% recycling rate. On the other hand, data from the World Bank in 2021 shows that Indonesia produces around 7.8 million tonnes of plastic waste annually. From this figure, 4.9 million tonnes of plastic waste are unmanaged and become environmental waste.
