Suez in Thailand venture

Suez is to build a plant in Thailand to convert plastic waste into recycled polymers.

The plant (pictured) in Bang Phli, near Bangkok, will convert 30,000 tonnes a year of locally collected polyethylene film waste into post-consumer recycled plastic, contributing to Thailand’s target to achieve 100% plastic recycling by 2030. Construction is expected to be completed by mid-2020.

Suez said Thailand produces two million tonnes a year of plastic waste, of which only a quarter is recycled.

Ana Giros Calpe, senior executive vice-president in Suez’s international division, said: “As a leader in plastics recycling in Europe, Suez will fully utilise its technological expertise to support the country in meeting its objective of reducing plastic waste, thus contributing to oceans’ preservation.”
