It’s no secret that during Bali’s record tourist number in 2019 that the Island was struggling with traffic, water supply and waste. One of the positives to come out of the border closures has been a chance to address these issues and for businesses and individuals to work towards creating a more sustainable Bali.

September 10, saw the launch of an Integrated Waste Management Facility in Jimbaran. This is a project of Danone-AQUA, together with the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime and Investment Affairs. Entirely managed by the private sector, this facility has become Bali’s largest waste management facility and is capable of handling 120 tonne of waste per day.

Helping Bali to become more sustainable, this facility takes a zero-waste approach reusing as much of the waste as possible, as opposed to it ending up in landfill. Plastic bottles will be separated and sent to East Java to a plastic waste recycling plant, where they will be recycled into PET materials. Danone-AQUA will use these materials to produce their plastic bottles. Any organic waste will be used to produce compost, and some of this waste will processed using Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) technology to produce fuel.

Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, Coordinating Minister for Maritime and Investment Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia praised this collaboration between the private sector and regional administration. He called it an excellent example, and noted that waste management, especially for plastic, is a priority for the Government or Indonesia.

Bali is known for its stunning nature, dazzling Beach Clubs and colourful ceremonies. Issue such as poor waste management need to be taken seriously to ensure the long-term sustainability of Bali, especially as an attractive tourist destination. It’s encouraging to see private companies such Danone-AQUA pioneering in solving waste problems, while employing people and creating a circular economy by recollecting and recycling post-consumption plastic bottle.

Here’s to cleaner and greener Bali moving forward!
