PLANT IN INDONESIA

Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia (Amatil) today announced it had entered into a Heads of Agreement with long-term packaging partner Dynapack Asia (Dynapack), to build a state-of-the-art bottle to bottle grade Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Recycling facility in Indonesia.
Amatil and Dynapack will work together through a proof of concept phase, which is intended to to consider a potential plant's economic feasibility, size, scale and location, end-to-end requirements and potential integration into each company's value chains. President Director of Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia, Mr. Kadir Gunduz, said Amatil and Dynapack had established a joint project team to leverage each company's expertise in respective parts of the production and recycling process, as part of considering this facility.
Mr. Gunduz said, "This joint venture represents a real environmental step-change in our move towards a more sustainable approach to plastic and a circular economy by bringing low-quality PET waste back to virgin-quality,food-grade PET, which also echoes The Coca-Cola Company's 'World Without Waste' vision.
It is a significant step towards Amatil becoming self-sustaining in the plastic materials we use, ensuring a closed-loop for plastic beverage packaging in Indonesia as a whole." He also added that the use of recycled plastic could reduce the amount of new plastic resin the company uses by an estimated 25,000 tonnes each year in 2022, aligning with the commitment as part of the steering board at NPAP (National Plastic Action Partnership) to supports Indonesia's National Action Plan in achieving a 70% reduction in the nation's marine plastic debris by 2025.
As the leading rigid plastic and packaging company in South East Asia and China, Dynapack Asia intends to collaborate with their customers to increase the use of recycled materials and products, strengthening the region's recycling ecosystem and achieving a circular economy in South East Asia and China. "To support our environmental responsibility, we have signed a global commitment with the Ellen McArthur Foundation to use at least 25% of recycled resin material in our packaging products by 2025. This recycled PET resin facility is another step closer to achieving our commitment." President Director of Dynapack Asia, Tirtadjaja Hambali said.
Following the proof of concept phase, and formalisation of agreements, the parties will outline their intended program.
