Danone-AQUA, IPB, and PT Oriplast Develop Innovative Infiltration Wells as One of the Solutions for Handling Plastic Waste and Water Conservation in Indonesia
Danone-AQUA in collaboration with the Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) and PT Oriplast presents an innovation for non-economical plastic recycling solutions as well as water conservation efforts in the form of a Knock-Down Plastic Wise Infiltration Well. The infiltration well functions to absorb water, prevent water from running off which has the potential to cause flooding, as well as groundwater reserves. Wise plastic infiltration wells are made of non-economic plastics, or types of plastics with low economic value such as black crackle, multilayer plastic packaging, diapers, and aluminum foil
Danone-AQUA has confirmed its commitment to be a pioneer in supporting the settlement of plastic packaging waste in Indonesia since 2018 through the #BijakBerplastik movement. This effort is realized through three important commitments, namely collecting more plastic packaging than is produced, educating 100 million consumers, and developing plastic packaging innovations to achieve 100% packaging that can be recycled, reused, or made compost by 2025.
Vera Galuh Soegijanto, VP General Secretary of Danone Indonesia, said that Danone-AQUA continues to encourage innovative collaborations to contribute to supporting the government in overcoming the problem of plastic waste and the sustainability of water resources in Indonesia. “In line with the vision of Danone, One Planet One Health, and a company that gives goodness to nature, we believe that healthy hydration will come from a healthy and sustainable environment. As part of the #BijakBerplastik movement that we have initiated since last 2018, this time Danone-AQUA encourages the realization of a collaboration between IPB and PT Oriplast to present an innovation of the Bijak Berplastik infiltration well as a solution to the challenge of the issue of non-economic plastic recycling as well as water conservation efforts, "said Vera Galuh Soegijanto.
