Vemale.com – Whereas if there is waste of various diseases will come and of course the environment was unsightly. Well, to minimize the problems that occur due to waste, you can choose household waste for easy recycling.
According to Mohamad Wise Junerosano as CEO Greeneration Indonesia rotten garbage can be separated first. However, if the paper is exposed to spices or other impurities, it is very difficult to recycle. For that, we should separate the garbage from the beginning.
"Firstly separate the rotten garbage because it can be used as compost and the easiest to separate organic and non organic waste, so that when the final waste disposal is easily sorted and recycled more easily," said Mohamad when met at the event 'Unilever Introducing CreaSlov Process for Waste Recycling Sachet Packaging 'in Jakarta.
Not only household waste, but waste sachets are of particular concern. For billions of disposable sachets packs are produced each year, especially in developing countries. Without a recycling solution, sachet packaging ends up in landfills or as waste that pollutes the environment, including the oceans.
Seeing this, Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) is committed to finding alternatives to tackle plastic packaging waste, including sachet packaging. Unilever also has a new breakthrough in terms of waste recycling technology in the name of CreaSolv, which is able to recycle flexible plastic or sachet packaging.
"CreaSolv technology has the potential to be a solution to solve the problem of flexible plastic waste and sachet packaging," said Sancoyo Antarikso, Governance and Corporate Affairs Director of Unilever Indonesia.
More than 60 percent of flexible packaging is made of polyethylene, so you focus on recycling polyethylene. The result is a fully reusable polyethylene film (plastic film).
"In the early stages or trials, the technology could potentially absorb 3 tons of clean plastic packaging waste per day, while on a commercial scale, this technology could potentially reduce the impact of CO2 by 7,800 tons per year for each operating unit, equivalent to 8,200 tons of flexible plastic, recoverable polymers will lead to a reduction in the use of new polymers, and therefore this technology is the most eco-efficient solution, "said Anton Harjanto, Head of Circular Economy, SEAA Project Uniliver.
