We founded ACP with a clear belief to do things differently in South East ASIA when it comes to plastics. We see a wonderful opportunity for the 6-8 milllion metric tons of used mismanaged plastic waste that is being generated every year, most of which is being landfilled, litter, burned, classic recycling or ending as plastic soup in our seas. We want to reduce this pile of waste by reusing it as an alternative to the expensive fossil based feedstock. By doing so, ACP strongly contributes to the circular economy and improves the environmental footprint by saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions. It also responds to the needs of consumers and brand owners who increasingly call for sustainable products.
We will create a complete new value chain in the field of sustainable polymers. We can design and build the largest single integrated plant using leading technology in sorting and compounding. Its innovation will be market driven with focus on product development and related technology
End of Life?
Plastics are found in virtually everything we use these days. Our food and hygiene products are packed in it. Our car, phone and computer are made of it, so are many more applications. Plastics have a positive effect on the environment since they are light weighted and therefore save energy in transport. When used as insulation they also save energy. They reduce the spilling of food by advanced packaging solutions that extend the shelf life.
However, when plastics come to their end of life, they often have a negative impact on our environment. They end up in landfills, beaches, rivers and oceans.
Consumers are increasingly aware of the environmental impacts from plastic waste and ask for sustainable solutions. Brand owners react to this trend and are looking for partners to co-develop circular products. The Governements shut acts by tightening legislation through banning landfill and reducing incineration. This will free up large quantities of used plastics.
hese used plastics offer a sustainable route for producing new ‘circular’ plastics in terms of resource efficiency, greenhouse gas reduction and waste.
While most plastics are touted as recyclable, the reality is that they’re down-cycled and used in low end applications. ACP licencing technology produce plastics that can be used in high-end applications by using the latest proven technologies and driving in-house innovations in the field of recipe development, extrusion and purification technology.
By using mechanically recycled polyolefins, the resource depletion reduces with a factor 20 compared to fossil based polyolefins. The impact of recycled polyolefins on global warming is only 10% compared to fossil based polyolefins. Mechanical recycling of polyolefins reduces acidification and eutrophication with more than a factor 10 compared to fossil based polyolefins.
Planet and Profit go hand in hand. Europe does not have access to advantaged fossil or bio feedstock, and has an advanced waste collection structure in most countries. In addition, circular polymers are the only route to solve the waste issue.
