DUYTAN Plastic Recycling Company inaugurates phase 1 of its factory with a production capacity of up to 30,000 tons a year in Duc Hoa District, Long An Province on April 20th, 2023.

DUYTAN Plastic Recycling Company started construction in June 2019 on an area of ​​65,000 square meters at the Duc Hoa Ha Plastic Industrial Zone in Long An Province, with a capacity of 100,000 tons a year upon completion. With modern production lines imported from Europe, in addition to ISO standards for management systems, the company’s products meet the standards of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and international certification from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). This is evidence of the quality of recycled plastic pellets that do not contain harmful substances and are safe for human health, suitable for producing food-contact products, including drinking water.

 

DUYTAN Plastic Recycling Company is currently the first factory in Vietnam to successfully apply the “Bottle to Bottle” recycling technology model – each used plastic bottle will be recycled into plastic pellets, creating a new plastic bottle loop to reduce the use of fossil fuels.

In 2022, the factory recycled over 1.3 billion plastic bottles collected domestically. The number of plastic bottles processed for recycling not only provided raw materials for large FMCG partner companies in Vietnam but also enabled the company to export 4,200 tons to 12 countries, including the United States and Europe.

Currently, the factory has a production capacity of 30,000 tons of plastic per year, and phase 2 will increase the processing capacity to 60,000 tons of plastic per year, equivalent to 4 billion plastic bottles to be recycled.

The factory is operated based on the THREE-NO criteria in the production process: Zero Waste – Zero Emission – Zero Waste Water. Applying these three criteria not only helps the company promote environmentally friendly production but also pays more attention to reusing energy sources in production.

Completion of the factory construction is considered an important step for DUYTAN Plastic Recycling Company in organizing collection, recycling, and producing high-quality recycled plastic pellets for the market. From there, the circular economy model in plastic waste management will gradually be improved, minimizing the impact on the environment, towards a green economy and encouraging businesses to increase the use of recycled plastic in packaging production.

Along with the development, material and spiritual life has been greatly improved but there have been the drawbacks of economic growth: ecological imbalance, climate change, pollution in urban areas, negative untreated waste. Mankind’s evolution in general and the prosperity of a country cannot only be measured by economic achievements but also the social sustainability, the environmental and ecological balance.

Sustainable development is a very broad topic, involving many social, economic, human issues. After the “net-zero” commitment by 2050 by the Vietnamese government at COP-26 and new generation free trade agreements, the topic of sustainable development has got more attentions.

Ho Chi Minh City, March 14, 2023 – Unilever Vietnam and DUYTAN Recycling held the event “Partnership Signing Ceremony to drive Plastic Collection and Recycling” towards Circular Economy.

The partnership demonstrates the commitment and determination to realize the goal of a leading consumer goods corporation in Vietnam to increase post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) and reduce virgin plastic in production, increase the packaging recyclability, as well as collect and process more than plastic packaging sold on the market. Those aim to turn plastic waste into a useful renewable resource for economic and daily use purposes, and reduce the harm to the natural environment.

Partnership towards environment and society

According to the Market Study for Vietnam: Plastics Circularity Opportunities and Barriers conducted by IFC and the World Bank, as much as 2.62 million tonnes of plastics are disposed of per year, that is, not recycled, resulting in the loss of 75 percent of the material value of plastics, which is equivalent to US$2.2 billion to US$2.9 billion per year. The recycling industry in Vietnam has a diverse but undeveloped source of recyclable materials while the plastic recycling rate is only 33 percent. The main reason is that the demand for post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) is not high enough because using virgin plastic is more convenient and cost-efficient.

Therefore, the quality of PCR plastic is always a challenge for corporations that apply international standards to their products like Unilever. This is also a “bottleneck” in driving the circular economy for plastic in Vietnam.

The partnership between Unilever Vietnam and Duy Tan Recycling is a step forward in promoting the use of recycled plastic in Unilever’s packaging production, thereby increasing recycling activities and creating a cycle for plastic waste in Vietnam.

This model will be brought into life from establishing a system of plastic waste segregation at source and collection, then leveraging the expertise and technology of Duy Tan Recycling to optimize the plastic waste collected through recycling and recycled plastic particles production to serve the packaging production of Unilever Vietnam.

Bearing a strong commitment, close-knit collaboration, and a firm action plan, the 5-year partnership between Unilever Vietnam and Duy Tan Recycling aims to collect and recycle 30,000 tons of plastic waste by 2027.

Along with the goal of building a plastic cycle to protect the environment, this partnership also contributes to implementing social commitments by improving working conditions, hygiene and health; providing training to increase the awareness and capability, enhancing livelihoods and social safety for waste collectors at more than 100 collection stations in the value chain of Duy Tan Recycling. This workforce is considered vulnerable and under-represented when the majority of them are women and almost stay out of the social safety net.

Additionally, Unilever Vietnam and Duy Tan Recycling also conduct communications and education programs to raise people’s awareness about environmental protection through the habit of sorting waste at households. This will help create stronger and wider impact across the country.

Capacity foundation

According to Ellen Macarthur Foundation, by 2040, a circular economy has the potential to reduce the annual volume of plastics entering our oceans by 80 percent, reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent, generate savings of USD 200 bn per year, and create 700,000 net additional jobs.

Leading in plastic waste management in Vietnam, Unilever has promoted a range of long-term and comprehensive action plans. In particular, reducing, innovating and circulating are three main actions driven by the business.

The company is committed to cutting down the amount of virgin plastic used in packaging production by half by 2025 – in which utilising PCR plastic is a key approach at Unilever Vietnam. The business aims to innovate, apply technology to ensure all packaging is recyclable, reusable or compostable. Meanwhile, Unilever Vietnam also circulates their plastic packaging through the plastic waste collection and treatment, then bringing it back to the manufacturing activities.

Unilever Vietnam has now achieved 82 percent plastic reduction, 73 percent packaging recyclability, and collected and processed more than 20,000 tons of plastic waste. The bottle packaging of many brands has also been applying PCR plastic. Typically, bottles of Sunlight, Lux and Love Beauty & Planet products use 100 percent PCR plastic; several other products have also applied PCR in packaging such as: Dove, Lifebuoy, Sunsilk, Comfort, OMO…

Bearing the mission of “Contributing to plastic pollution reduction in Vietnam”, Duy Tan Recycling conceived the idea and plan, studied the technology over the period from 2017-2018, then officially constructed a recycling plant in 2019. In 2020, the business conducted the equipment installation and trial production prior to bringing the plant into official operations since 2021.

The plant of Duy Tan Recycling is currently operating according to International Standards on Quality, Environment, Safety & Health, owning the production capacity of up to 100,000 tons per year. The company is applying the modern technology “Bottles to Bottles” – from an input plastic bottle, the business will process and produce recycled plastic particles to ensure physical and chemical conditions for food safety. These plastic particles will be blown into new plastic bottles.

With those strengths, this cooperation will create a great motivation to help complete the circular economy model in plastic waste management that Unilever is aiming for. This also helps inspire other think-alike businesses to increase PCR plastic use in packaging production, as well as asks for the Government’s instruction and suport to open up more development opportunities for the recycling industry, which contributes to spreading the circular economy model across the country.
