The Jakarta Post says a foreign investment company PT Enviro Pallets will establish a factory in Tabanan, West Bali that will daily turn 30 tons of plastic waste into ship pallets that be sold both in Indonesia and abroad.

J. Roger Harkin, president director of PT Enviro Pallets, told The Jakarta Post that the company would be able to recycle plastic bags, food wrappings, old noodle packages and other plastic wastes.

Harkin added: “We know some companies already process plastic bottles, so we will process other plastic waste that has badly polluted Balinese rivers, beaches and soil alike.”

The 30 tons of plastic waste needed as raw material for the plan represents an estimated 30% of the total plastic wastes generated by Bali each day.

“The beaches, rivers and the ground are expected to be free from the mountains of plastic waste,” said Harkin.

Bali governor Pastika who has launched a “Bali Clean and Green” program has welcomed news of the investment as a means of reducing plastic waste on the Island.“ The company will process 30 tons of plastic waste into plastic pallets. This may solve our burgeoning problem of dealing with plastic waste. I look forward to seeing the progress,” said Pastika.

The provincial environmental agency estimates 10,000 cubic meters of trash is produced in Bali every day, 1,500 cubic meters of which are plastics. By recycling the plastic, the new company will make heavy-duty plastic pallets that will eliminate the need for wooden pallets used in the shipping and storage industries.

The plastic recycling technology was invented in New Zealand and the Bali plant will be the first of its kind with the pioneering technology.

People bringing plastic waste to the company will be paid Rp. 500 (US$ 0.05) per kilogram of waste plastic.
