Our process appears simple, due to undergoing years of refinement.
Watch our process video below:
Plastic waste is collected from the ocean and rivers by local collectors in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The plastic collections behind Ocean Waste Plastic are certified by DNV and documented by batch number, coordinates, picture, date, and initials of collector.
The weight of the plastic is controlled at several checkpoints throughout the process.
At the ReSea sorting station, the plastic is once again weighed and registered in the blockchain system.
The plastic is carefully fine-sorted by type of plastic. We currently offer OWP in PP and HDPE.
The sorted plastic is bale pressed and then delivered to plastic processors.
The plastic is shredded, washed, and melted to create OWP granulate.
The granulate is transported to Pack Tech which uses it to make OWP Packaging.
We hand over all the plastic we are unable to use in the production of new raw materials to Waste4Change or SBI. They then distribute the contaminated plastic to companies that can make use of it. No landfills are used.
The Raw Material
We currently process two types of raw materials:
Used for blow molded packaging
Most of the plastic collected is plastic shopping bags. In the Western world such plastic bags are made out of LDPE, but in Asia they are mainly made out of HDPE.
Used for injection molded packaging
The second most collected kind of plastic is single-use plastic cups which is our main source of PP.
ReSea Project is the company that handles the process behind OWP raw materials and is based in Indonesia. This includes the collection, sorting, and delivery to either a plastic processor or their partners Waste4Change and SBI.
The plastic collection is tracked and the entire process is audited and certified.
ReSea Project has around 50 local collectors based in Jakarta and around 25 employees in the sorting station.
ReSea project is owned by Pack Tech.
As part of Pack Tech, ReSea Project, was founded to handle the supply chain behind OWP.
