In a bid to revolutionize plastic recycling in India and pave the way for a sustainable future, Banyan Nation and GET RECYCLING joined hands in 2018. This collaboration has been instrumental in driving the goal of recycling HDPE/PP plastics within the Indian market. Banyan Nation, a distinguished name in the field, prides itself on being the singular company with certified recycled polyolefin materials suitable for everyday human contact packaging applications such as shampoo, lotion, and detergent bottles. Their recycled plastics meet stringent packaging and plastics safety standards set by both the United States and the European Union.
Banyan Nation's commitment to sustainable practices is reflected in their sourcing strategy. They ensure a 100 percent traceable supply chain for their raw materials, establishing trust and transparency in their operations. Over the past 12 months, they have successfully produced more than 300 million Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) bottles utilizing recycled plastic. Their prestigious clientele includes renowned names like Hindustan Unilever, Reckitt, Shell, and HPCL.
A significant milestone in their sustainability journey is their state-of-the-art facility located in Hyderabad, showcasing that high-quality recycling can indeed be achieved at scale while adhering to environmental and social responsibility standards. Despite their current installed capacity being less than 1 percent of the projected demand for recycled plastics in 2025, Banyan Nation has ambitious plans for expansion. Co-founder Mani Vajipey shares the vision of scaling up their plastics washing technology to develop premium-quality recycled plastics suitable for injection, blow, and extrusion grade materials across various industries.
Banyan Nation has set a lofty target of achieving an installed capacity of 50,000 tonnes by 2024, aiming to significantly augment their contribution to sustainable plastic recycling. Their founders firmly believe that forging partnerships with other startups, large corporations, policymakers, and customers can catalyze a transformational shift in how plastics are perceived in India. They envision India emerging as a global sustainability trailblazer, setting a precedent for responsible plastic consumption and recycling.
The collaboration between Banyan Nation and GET RECYCLING is not just a one-time endeavor. It is an ongoing commitment to supporting customers in achieving their recycling goals. By providing cutting-edge technical solutions and advanced recycling methodologies, the alliance is steadfast in its resolve to contribute to a circular economy and minimize the environmental impact of plastic waste.
In conclusion, the alliance between GET RECYCLING and Banyan Nation stands as a beacon of hope for a sustainable future. With their innovative approach, commitment to quality, and a vision for a greener tomorrow, they are driving a transformative agenda in India's recycling landscape and beyond.
