Pilot demonstrations will be conducted where non-recyclable plastic wastes will be energy-recovered in local energy intensive industry, constituting a win-win concept and a fundamental pillar in circular economy. 

Such practice will increase the treatment capacity for non-recyclable plastic waste, reduce the need for landfilling and incineration, reduce the consumption of non-renewable fossil fuels and finally reduce the release of greenhouse gases.

Lessons learned will be shared through a regional multi-stakeholder forum enabling awareness raising, capacity building and efficient replication across the continent.

The partner countries are China, India, Thailand, Vietnam and Myanmar.
