Plastic Pollution- Let’s Talk Facts

The massive volume of plastic waste pollutes the environment, triggering consequences across the ecosystem

60 %

increase expected in plastic manufacturing

Plastic manufacturing is expected to increase by 60% by 2030 and triple by 2050. Environmental damage caused by pollution could perhaps cost up to $13 billion annually.

900 kt

of PET produced annually in India

According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in 2015, the average amount of plastic waste produced in India is 6.92% of municipal solid waste (MSW). India produces 900-kilo tonnes of PET annually.

368 million

Tonnes of plastic manufactured annually

The extrapolation of plastic waste generation data from 60 major cities revealed that India produces about 25,940 tonnes of plastic waste per day (TPD). As of 2019, 368 million tonnes of plastic was manufactured annually, with Asia accounting for 51%.

13 million

Tonnes of plastic dumped into oceans annually

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that nearly 300 million tonnes of plastic is produced every year worldwide. Up to 13 million tonnes of that is dumped into the ocean, devastating aquatic resources and the fishing industry.

1 lakh

Marine animals die due to plastic pollution every year

Marine plastic pollution kills 100,000 marine mammals and turtles each year, as well as 1 million sea birds. If study projections are to be believed, by 2050 there may be more plastic in the oceans than fish.

6.3 billion

Tonnes of plastic produced from the 1950s to 2018

From the 1950s to 2018, around 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic was manufactured globally, of which 9% was recycled and the other 12% was burned.

How Is Go Rewise Helping?

According to a yearlong study by researchers from the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), out of the 900-kilo tonnes of PET produced in India annually, 65% is recycled at authorised facilities, 15% in the unorganised sector, and 10% is reused at homes.
We, at Go Rewise, are passionate about the environment and take pride in being a part of the system that aids in PET recycling. We believe in giving back to the planet that nurtures us.

  • rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) is a food-safe raw material manufactured by recycling PET packaging. Go Rewise is responsibly and fervently involved in manufacturing rPET products with minimal contaminants. Our rPET is suitable for the production of premium quality products equivalent to virgin PET, including food-safe packaging.
  • This is just the beginning of what we do! Our optimism for a greener tomorrow, makes us go above and beyond to provide our partners with 100% recycled products which contribute toward a sustainable future.
  • We are ethical and transparent in our approach. When we talk conservation, we talk numbers. We address environmental protection meticulously.

Water Conservation

rPET utilises 90% less water than virgin plastic. In fact, rPET yarns utilise 94% less water than oil-based PET fibres. Go Rewise is recycling 90% of the utilised water. We have also developed our own ETP plant to maximise utilisation. In the recycling realm, our procedures are engineered to consume 75% less water than other PET recycling companies. Furthermore, we have a zero-liquid discharge facility at Warangal. PET recycling can substantially reduce ocean-bound PET waste, which is particularly detrimental to the ecosystem as both macro and microplastic waste.

Energy Conservation

rPET uses 79 to 85% less energy than virgin products in manufacturing, making it the ultimate sustainable choice. In the next five years, we aim to get the renewable energy mix to 60%. We are focused on enhancing our reliance on renewable energy resources and we have taken numerous steps to ensure the same. At an organisation level, we have deployed renewable energy sources across facilities, meeting around 17% of the plant’s annual requirement from the solar resource.

Reduced CO2 Emissions

The higher the proportion of rPET, the better it is for the environment. Manufacturing bottles or other products from rPET flakes/chips consumes half the energy involved in new PET production and reduces CO2 emissions by five times. rPET is 75 % more environmentally safe than PET, according to Swiss Climate, and has a significantly better natural balance than glass. In fact, rPET can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by more than 79 % when compared to virgin PET, according to research.

Sustainable Development Goals

Safeguarding Environment in Unison

At Go Rewise, we believe in a unified approach to sustainability, we have, therefore, aligned our operations with a few significant Sustainability Development Goals laid out by the United Nations. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, endorsed by all UN Member States in 2015, presents a shared roadmap for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, present and in the future.
