Indonesia's plastic waste problem is complex and pressing.

Indonesia generates 7.8 million tonnes of plastic waste annually with an estimate of 4.9 million tons mismanaged due to poor collection and disposal infrastructure. Roughly 600,000 tons of this ends up in Indonesia’s waterways and oceans. While waste collections remains an issue, recycling accounts for only 10-15% of this plastic waste. 

Indonesia's large population and rapid urbanization have led to substantial increase in plastic consumption. Per capital plastic consumption in Indonesia is 15 kg/p.a and growing at 4% per annum especially in the single-use plastic category.
Roughly 600,000 tons Indonesia's plastic waste left uncollected or dispersed find their way into waterways or the ocean.
4.9 million tons of the 7.8 million tons of plastic waste or 62% of plastic waste in indonesia is mismanaged and remains unrecycled. Lack of collection and segregation infrastructure (MRF facilities) exasperate this situation.
Indonesia has little to no at source waste segregation and public knowledge of this crisis remains low. Large scale awareness campaigns and advocacy campaigns are required to galvanize a behavioural shift.
Poor sorting infrastructure and low quality processing have made recycled plastics unsuitable for large scale users such as FMCG, Automakers and industrial users. Recycled plastics have been relegated to the unusable category despite the promise they show when done correctly.

Our internal goal
is simple –
100,000 MT / year

Our first factory will allow us 3,600 MT / year of Recycled plastics. We believe we can achieve our target in 48 Months.

How Recycling Works
& How to Improve it

A good recycled process as practiced by BBP entails thorough sorting sorting/segregation, cleaning, processing and compounding as required for end-user specific needs.

Our Facilities
and Expansion

BBP aims to build a series of dedicated facilities for each product category across Indonesia. Our facilities will feature the most innovative technologies and processes to create high efficiency. BBP aims to build a processing base of 50,000 tons per annum by 2025.
