Enabling factors

The availability of an established plastic waste value chain provided the raw material for the facility as well as partnerships ramped up waste from the hotels including training community groups to be waste management champions via Beach clean-ups and waste pickers.

Lessons learned

Finding a market for the plastic pellets is very critical in providing sustainability of the plastic value chain and thus creating circularity in the plastic waste management mix that might involve upcycling, down cycling and treatment.
