Redefining Waste for a Better Future
Dalmia produces high quality recyclates from local PET and polyolefin waste for reuse, helping to solve India’s plastic waste problem and to advance the circular economy.
For the last 15 years, Dalmia has been a critical part of the reincarnation of plastic in India by maximising the value of PET and Polyolefin plastic waste. We are the largest PET recyclers in the nation. PET plastic, most commonly in the form of plastic bottles, accounts for over 10% of plastic waste in India. Although 90% of this is collected and recycled, it is channelled towards traditional applications, resulting in low levels of circularity. By moving beyond these practices of downcycling PET and through the adoption of technology, Dalmia produces high quality recycled PET (rPET) as well as Polyolefin flakes and granules serving industries across fashion and packaging. We are also well positioned to lead the way in developing food-grade applications. This achieves maximum value for the plastic waste collected, fostering plastic circularity and benefiting the entire value chain.
Forming stronger relationships with our team on the ground is integral to our work. Our waste collectors, aggregators and processors receive fair wages with benefits and incentives. Our impact begins with building stability at the local municipal level.
We manage India's waste management problem by diverting waste streams directed to landfills and water bodies, and creating sustainable recycled materials. The UN SDGs are encoded in our process from waste collection to manufacture.
Our products serve businesses from packaging to fashion. When we partner with businesses, we help corporates fulfil their environmental obligations. Crucially, we expand our reach and the scale of our impact.
We tackle India’s waste management problem by heading straight to the source. We engage with waste pickers, aggregators and every single link in the supply chain, looping them into our vision of a circular plastic economy. Impact begins at the local municipal level and we are always looking to expand our vast network. We produce sustainable, high-quality materials that meet the requirements of our customers. We redefine waste through our quality output which meets the highest standards of the market. This is both the result of our technological capabilities and our years of research yielding a standardised product.
DPIPL will be the 1st recycler and 2nd company in India to be accepted as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Global Commitment. DPIL received Ocean Bound Plastic certification from Control Union. We have initiated the preliminary FDA approval process for our rPET Flakes and envisage that to be completed within the next six months
