  • Global Growth Marine Debris Indonesia


    We are inviting Norwegian companies with promising technologies or solutions from the Norwegian industry looking to expand their business operation globally.

    Waste in Indonesia

    Indonesia is facing significant challenges on sustainable environmental management, not least in terms of waste resource management. The country produced 3.2 million tons of plastic waste in 2010, with around 1.29 million tons of that ending up in the ocean. The figure places Indonesia second only to China, with its 8.8 million tons of waste, or 27 percent of global plastic waste. Against this backdrop, Indonesia will reduce 70% of its plastic debris over the next eight years starting in 2017. The country will launch its National Action Plan on Marine Plastic Debris that contains numerous strategies and concrete plans on land, in coastal areas, and at sea, aiming at significantly reducing marine plastic debris as well as contributing to the national ambition on the realization of a trash-free Indonesia. 

    In addition, Indonesia is also constructing a national program to address the land-based management of waste over a period of four years with finances of up to USD 1 billion, and welcome collaboration from strategic partners, which include Norway and other Nordic countries in this regard.

    Opportunities exist for both Norwegian technologies and strategies to efficiently  clean up at sea, as well as comprehensive solutions from handling dangerous waste, better value chain for plastic recovery, and producer responsibility in the areas of packaging. The whole circular economy needs a boost in Indonesia.
