State-of- the-art recycling facility

ALBA Group Asia Limited (ALBA), Baguio Waste Management & Recycling Limited (Baguio) and Swire Coca-Cola Limited (Swire Coca-Cola), has formed a joint venture (JV) to operate a state-of- the-art recycling facility for plastic waste in Hong Kong.

The facility is expected to be able to process polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). The mechanical recycling facility is intended to be built on T6, a plot within the EcoPark which has been awarded to Baguio as tenant under a tender by Environmental Protection Department in late 2017.

The JV will benefit from the strengths of Baguio’s domestic collection network in Hong Kong, ALBA’s recycling technology expertise and Swire Beverages’ strength in the domestic beverages market.

The facility is expected to commence operations in the third quarter of 2021. The facility is planned to be able to process the entire domestic volume of post-consumer beverage packaging (PET) combined with used personal care bottles (HDPE), which is collectable in the foreseeable future.

The facility will consist of a common near infra-red sorting facility and two production lines, one for food grade PET flake, the other for HDPE pellets.

The facility has been designed to use as little water as possible (much of the water is re-used) – that the end water is treated using the latest wastewater management systems, that heat capture techniques are used and lastly that the roof has a full solar array of photovoltaic panels (440w panels – 200kW system). Swire Properties Limited has been appointed as the Project Manager for the design and construction of the facility.
