We help businesses to achieve plastic neutrality by closing the loop of plastic waste through integrated, impactful solutions. The model is based on the following 6 pillars:
- financing model based on FMCGs purchasing plastic credits
- implementation of new waste collection technologies
- advanced sorting for recyclables
- traditional recycling of recyclables (or return back to FMCGs if relevant)
- non-recyclables sent for co-processing
- provision of plastic neutrality credits to FMCGs
We provide responsible organizations an avenue to invest in newer solutions to tackle urban plastic pollution and marine littering. Our circular solutions can manage large plastic volumes, redirecting them from landfills and oceans and helping to achieve a resource efficient future. We help our partners move beyond the traditional waste disposal paradigm, creating a positive impact on their brand while contributing towards a zero waste society.
The plastic credits are a transformative way of driving investment and innovation in collection, sorting, recycling and recovery infrastructure for plastic waste. This supports building a waste management system that is efficient, transparent and equitable.
Plastic waste: A snowballing crisis
Plastic pollution worldwide will double by 2030 unless major changes are made in how plastic waste is managed as per a recent report by the World Wildlife Fund.
In most countries the lack of adequate infrastructure for segregation and collection is the key reason for inefficient plastic waste treatment. Planet solutions is addressing this challenge by supporting the creation of closed loop waste management solutions at the local level.
A comprehensive and effective pathway to plastic free environment.
Planet adopts novel collection and segregation solutions for plastic waste. Such solutions include Geocycle Bubble Barriers to capture the plastics from rivers to address marine littering, PlaNet App to manage urban post consumer plastic, or mobile sorting stations to divert plastics from landfills.
After collection and sorting, the plastic will be redirected to one of the following pathways:
- To producers for recycling and replacing virgin plastic resin.
- Recycled through existing local infrastructure.
- Non-recyclable plastics to be channeled to cement plants for recycling and recovery through co-processing
Why choose Planet solutions
We help businesses close the loop of plastic waste through integrated, impactful solutions that:
- Enable a clean plastic free environment
- Help create sustainable livelihood opportunities
- Help our partners build a brand their customers love
To recover large quantities of waste, we have developed the following range of technologically & socially-driven waste collection initiatives, that can be implemented either simultaneously on a single project or separately in different parts of the world:
Recognizing the need to address the challenge of marine plastic pollution, Geocycle is implementing a smart, noninvasive technology to efficiently remove plastics from rivers before they reach the oceans. PlaNet Solutions is partnering with CanadianPond, to implement the ‘bubble curtain’ technology. Ships and fish can pass through the air bubbles, but plastics will be stopped. The bubble screen brings waste to the surface, channels the plastic on to the riverside, from where it will be extracted.
Our solutions ensure post consumer plastic waste is diverted from landfills to large scale sorting stations established at landfill sites. These highly efficient and compliant sorting stations reduce the volume of waste going to landfills by redirecting plastic waste, and sending it for recycling and recovery.
