Member companies, Recom in Saudi Arabia and Masterpak
in Lebanon, collected and converted plastic waste into 18,521 MT of PE recycled resins in 2016, under the MicroMB brand
. This reduced greenhouse gas emissions by over 46,300 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTCO2E). Sister companies converted almost 65% of these recycled resins into plastic films and packaging materials.
INDEVCO’s plastic R&D arm, Polymer Application Center for Technology (PACT), worked on recycling and compounding difficult polymers to selectively streamline the plastic waste for higher value converting. By regenerating quality resins to replace virgin resins, INDEVCO promotes the sustainable and efficient use of natural resources, in line with UN SDG12
