With our more than 110 employees in whole Taiwan, we are accepting resource recyclables and waste all the way from Kaohsiung to Taipei. In addition to our head office in Taipei, we serve customers from all regions in our plastic recycling plant in Nantou and our industrial service plant in Taoyuan.
Biomethane, also known as renewable natural gas, is a sustainable and renewable form of energy that is produced from organic waste materials, such as agricultural waste, food waste, and sewage sludge. Biomethane can be used as a replacement for fossil fuels, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The current global political situation with the continuing pandemic-related breakdowns in global supply chains, the struggle to find economic solutions to climate change and, last but not least, the increasing shortage of raw materials due to war, is once again placing greater focus on the environmental service branch. Material recycling and plastics recycling in particular hold considerable potential for ensuring the supply of raw materials in the face of interrupted supply chains and planetary limitations, while at the same time protecting the climate and resources.
In the blog post “Co-existing with Biogas”, we introduced that digestate is the byproduct of a biogas plant and a high-quality fertilizer rich in humus and plant nutrients. The look of it doesn’t suggest it but in terms of value, digestate plays in the same league as mineral fertilizer, sometimes even higher.
Three strong partners have joined forces to agree on a cooperation for more sustainability in the reuse of recyclates: Gramß (plastic manufacturer), REBHAN (packaging producer) and REMONDIS. The joint project focuses on intensifying the use of recycled plastics – especially HDPE and PP from households and offices (PCR – post-consumer recycled). The focus is above all on grey recyclate, which is currently still being used rather hesitantly in the packaging sector. REMONDIS collects, sorts and recycles plastic packaging into a freely tested HDPE or PP recyclate. The “Certificates of Conformity” for cosmetic applications for rinse-off and leave-on products are particularly important here.
There are over 6 million people living in the greater Taipei area, with industries stretching across the agriculture, industrial and food processing sector. The volumes of biowaste produced is over 800 tons per day (according to 2020 EPA statistics, accounting for biowaste within municipal city waste), which makes it extremely suitable to draw on Germany’s experience.
