"The Living Business programme provided the additional catalyst to form a specific project team (beyond our project site team) to focus solely on project waste management. We already had an annual waste target (reported in our annual sustainability report), but we needed external resources to help us find waste management partners. Following the introductions and meetings we quickly established which companies could take our specific building waste, the financial impact, and then established a new process. Results • End of financial year 31st March 2022, 9% project waste diverted from landfill (target 20%) • 28% project waste (end September 2022) has already been diverted from landfill (target 30%) using two new partners. • Contracts with partners due to be signed in the coming months • New waste process developed will be embedded into our ISO quality management system and rolled out"

Question

Provide details on how your project has benefitted the sustainability realm as well as your organisation, your team & your stakeholders if relevant.

Answer RePlaste

"The beauty of plastic, that most people fail to realize, is its 100% recyclability in a closed loop cycle. In theory, every plastic flake or offshoot can be recycled to make new products. However, recycling is a more energy intensive process than reusing or reducing waste in the first place. We introduced a set of measures, across the board, allowing us to collect waste off-shoots, training cnc operators in how to most effectively cut new products to allow for material recovery as well as sorting + cleaning the fore-mentioned flakes in such a way to allow for quick reintegration back into our manufacturing supply chain. However, not all in-house waste can be reused or reduced. In such cases, we have developed a method to regrind the plastic flake, add strong black organic pigments and ultimately make new plastic flakes which are then used to make Sapor sheets and new products."

While we are close to having a refined list of best practices, this project is an ongoing work that will help us with internal waste recover for as long as RePlaste continues with production. Moreover, this set of practices is always a work in progress as we try to ultimately make repurpose the preferred destination for offshoots instead of recycling; which is an energy and labor intensive process. We expect to save up to 30% of our regrind and use them for customer projects.

"Recycling considerably benefits the environment, as new goods are replaced by recycled goods. The most widely used plastic worldwide is polyethylene terephthalate (PET), common in different packaging of beverages and textile products. One of the most important characteristics of PET is that it is fully recyclable. This type of plastic can be recycled through different types of procedures, although mechanical recycling is the most used. After being recycled, it gives rise to a material called r Pet that has multiple applications in sectors such as food and beverages."

ABA Beverages, along with Pepsi Co and Al Mannai Plastics, Kuwait, initiated the trials with r Pet preforms in June. The raw material, the Resin, was from a FDA approved Vendor, Bariq, in Egypt. The preforms were manufactured, using these resins, by Al Mannai Plastics. Both the resin as well as the preforms are approved by Pepsi Co, after they pass the mandatory tests like Migration Test, Chemical Tests and Mechanical strength.
