ALING TINDERA NETWORK PHILIPPINES

The Aling Tindera Network is a community of female micro-entrepreneurs we empower to manage sustainable waste-to-cash systems. We equip each of them with the resources and training to run plastic waste collection stations and be champions for sustainability in their communities. This market based mechanism encourages behavior change at the grass roots to not treat plastic as trash but as a resource to feed bak into a circular economy.

PROJECT PARTNER:
CO-PROCESSING

Co-processing is a way to convert plastic waste into something useful. At the same time, it is a more environmentally friendly disposal method of plastic as compared to landfilling or incineration. It works by using plastic waste in industrial processes as alternative fuels or raw materials. In other words, the waste is responsibly and efficiently burned in a high-temperature cement kiln so it can be used as fuel with minimal carbon emissions. Through this, energy and materials from the plastics are sustainably recovered and can be used for new products that support a circular economy.
