The objective of this collaboration is to manage the plastic waste in the production process. IRPC Eco Solution Model feeds the plastic waste back into the production process (closed loop) and builds a plastic waste platform to collect big data of plastic waste from each partner’s plant. This platform is accessible, results in an efficient plastic waste management and promotes 3Rs. All consumers can feel comfortable when using the products made from recycled polymer which is certified for the quality.
IRPC is the first company in Thailand to be certified for “zero plastic waste in production process”. This certification will leverage Thai plastic industry and can be a model for other 10 ASEAN countries in the near future.
