With over 80% of ocean plastic starting on land prevention is key in protecting our oceans. Proper recycling starts with establishing a value on plastics and proper sorting and transportation of materials to a recycling center. INTCO Malaysia works closely with communities in Malaysia and around the world to encourage the collection and sorting of materials that are then processed into flakes and pellets to then be turned into new products. Let’s all fight for a cleaner planet and ocean!
Making the Necessary Investments
INTCO Malaysia has invested RM1.3 Billion to establish an all rounded recycling facilities and most advanced bottle to bottle SSP technologies outside Kuala Lumpur. These machineries use the latest technology to bring recycled PET plastic bottle back to a food-grade quality to be used to make new food grade plastic bottles and packaging. INTCO Malaysia is a leader in providing plastic Food Grade pellets and Food Grade sheet to make packaging for some of the top brands and companies in the world. True leaders in the drive for circularity.
Commitment to Standards
INTCO Malaysia recently partnered with OceanCycle, a social enterprise leading the fight against ocean plastic prevention to establish and strengthen plastic collection systems in Malaysia and throughout Asia. INTCO’s manufacturing and collection operations were audited by OceanCycle in May and June and together the organizations plan to elevate industry standards around the collection and processing of materials. In addition to protecting our oceans, both organizations are working together to reduce plastics flowing into landfills and being burned due to improper waste management.
▲ Taken in June 2022, Malaysia
In August 2022, INTCO Malaysia became the FIRST manufacturer in Malaysia to receive OceanCycle prestigious certification for ocean-bound plastics. This means that INTCO can sell products fully certified by OceanCycle by following their strict guidelines for transparency and the chain of custody of materials. OceanCycle’s standards focus on proving that material is ocean-bound from an area of mismanaged waste and ethically collected (no harmful child labor or forced labor).
