Lyre pack sterile cartons keep the contents bacteria Free, and has been ubiquitous in the food industry since 1960 development. If you participate in the school\'s milk program, enjoy a frozen boxed drink from the vending machine, or pour a glass of juice from the carton at home, you benefit from the technology. However, as with all technologies, advances in product development also require advances in waste management to avoid the inconvenience of modern convenience in the future. In the case of a sterile carton, it is low-rise Density of plastic or polyethylene (PE) And aluminum foil (AL) This brings problems to recyclers. Ordinary paper mills can easily recycle paper or fiber parts that make up 75% of the carton. In fact, the paper in these cartons is more valuable than the news paper because it does not need to be disassembledinking. It is also made of raw pulp, and most of the newsprint has been recycled several times before, limiting the number of times it can be recycled further. However, the remaining 25% PE- Aluminum content is often considered more unwanted waste. The recyclers are reluctant to take this responsibility, so Malaysia and Singapore have taken the responsibility of Lebao (TPM&S) Provide a functional solution. This was done by the company in partnership with Alam Flora Sdn Bhd and Pascorp paper Sdn Bhd. Alam Flora will serve as the collection unit of the joint venture and recycling unit Pascorp. The three parties signed a memorandum of understanding in this regard in early September. This cooperation is the result of nearly three years of planning. As a result, Malaysia will systematically recycle the leule carton for the first time. Mohammed Tazree, business development manager, TPM & S, said Pascorp was the only one to see PE- AL content as a resource. It has the necessary equipment to separate PE- One layer from paper. There are several ways to recycle these components. The aluminum foil layer can be recycled and used to make new aluminum products, a process that requires less energy than producing aluminum from the original ore. PE components can be mixed with other plastic to make new plastic products. However, Pascorp will recover PE and AL residues at the same time, crush them in a separate machine and form the debris into a panel. These boards will be supplied to the furniture industry as a replacement for Wood. It will take time to find a partner with this vision. In order to evaluate the response of consumers and the recycling capacity of various paper mills, more experiments were carried out. A feasibility test was conducted at the Muda paper mill, but there was a lack of proper infrastructure to deal with the volumes that were planned to be recycled by TPM & S. Another challenge for TPM & S is to maintain a large scale Scale recycling project. In this regard, their main achievement is to make all the links in the recycling chain worthwhile: consumers, Alam Flora and Pascorp. Consumers buy a lot more money from Alam Flora: 30 sen/kg for a Lele pack carton, three times that of a regular cardboard carton ( Tissue or cereal box) Newspaper twice. In turn, Alam Flora gets money from Pascorp, which buys cartons as raw materials for making paper products. In fact, this additional fiber source will help reduce the fiber supply deficit of 14% in 2003. According to Tazree, the amount of recycling is now too small to make a profit for Alam Flora and Pascorp. There is no doubt, however, that the work will eventually be profitable. But for now, TPM & S claims that all three parties are involved because of a sense of social responsibility. Since the beginning of 1990, similar recycling projects have been carried out in Germany, Brazil and Japan. At 2002, 65% of the beverage boxes were recovered in Germany. TPM & S plans to achieve a 5% recovery rate over the next three years. On the surface, it seems like a small step for a big company. In fact, it seems trivial compared to 65% in Germany. But taking into account last year TPM & S in Malaysia and Singapore distribution the 0. 804 billion a carton every year 5% a carton more than 40 million a This is a quite big of digital. The three companies did not stop. They intend to achieve a recovery rate of 30% by 2020. Yes, there is still some work to be done in Malaysia to recycle sterile boxes, hopefully this will be the first step in the general direction. As Peter Jhaveri, general manager of TPM & S said: \"As a company, your size doesn\'t matter, what matters is how big or small your commitment to the environment is.
