The Recent Activities & Event By Hiroyuki

Hiroyuki Industries collaborate with Coca-Cola Malaysia, AEON Malaysia, and Trash4Cash for the Launch of ‘Recycle Me!’ Campaign.

Continuing the success of last year’s Recycling Fantastic Campaign, Hiroyuki Industries is truly an honour to collaborate with our valued partners once again with Coca-Cola Malaysia, AEON Malaysia, and also with a new partner – Trash4Cash, to launch the ‘Recycle Me!’ Campaign – A program that aims to encourage and rewards Malaysians for recycling their PET plastic bottles in five different states.

The event is scheduled to take place from 14th December 2023 to 29th February 2024, the ‘Recycle Me!’ Campaign encourages the public to collect PET bottles and receive cash rewards based on their contributions. Participants will receive a RM0.10 Trash4Cash buy-back incentive for each 10 PET bottles deposited, with the additional exclusive Coca-Cola merchandise.

Through the ‘Recycle Me!’ Campaign, we aim to educate the public that plastic is not a waste; it holds great value if collected and processed appropriately, our company’s vision is to develop products with sustainable solutions, to reduce the environmental burden and promote recycling toward a greener future.

The deposit process has been simplified by allowing participants to scan the QR code on the Smart Recycle Bin to provide their information at any time during the campaign period. The Smart Recycle Bin’s QR code system makes it easy for all participants to have a seamless experience. After returning their used PET bottles, they can check their rewards there.

The ‘Recycle Me!’ campaign is being expanded by Hiroyuki Industries and its partners to 15 AEON malls in five states this year – Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, and Johor.

Collaboration Agreement Signing Ceremony between Hiroyuki Industries (M) Sdn. Bhd. & NSCCCI for Launching of Let’s Rescue PET Bottle 2023

As we all know, the environment that we live in is closely related to our health. From the air we breathe to the water we drink, all are affected by environmental factors. In order to instill environmental awareness among students, we initiated a CSR program, whereby thru a series of environmental education activities, allow students to learn and practice living green lifestyle, and from then on create a better and healthier environment.

Hiroyuki Industries (M) Sdn. Bhd & Negeri Sembilan Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (NSCCCI) believes that “environmental education begins with lifestyle change”.

In view of this, Hiroyuki Industries (M) Sdn. Bhd. and NSCCCI have signed a collaboration agreement to exercise our corporate social responsibility and achieve the sustainable development goals, by organizing an Environmental Education Program “Green lifestyle”. We hope that thru “environmental education begins with lifestyle change”, we can educate our next generation on the importance of environmental protection.

The anchor sponsors for Let’s Rescue PET bottles 2023 are Spritzer and Starlinger, pilot sponsors includes Dan Qing Pack (M) Sdn. Bhd. and D&F Boutique Hotel.

We belief a better lifestyle starts from environmental education. Let us promote “Green Lifestyle” together.

School Awards Ceremony for “The Rescue PET Bottles school project 2021-2022” in Southern Johor Primary School Competition.

We invited Encik Mohd Faizal bin Sabtu, the Assistant Director of Student Talent Development Unit, From Johor State Education Department for giving the awards and trophy to top 10 primary schools.

Our school project involving 60 primary schools participates with 72,564 students and 4,484 teachers participating across Johor Bahru, Kulai and Pasir Gudang area.

In year 2021 – 2022, we total collected 7.5tons, equal to 500k PET Bottles from primary schools.

As a result, awareness of students about PET Bottle recycling is improving and raise the awareness of the PET Bottle recycling in schools.

This encourages students to implement their recycling tactics in their everyday life, helping to tackle the waste they produce at home.

Education is an investment. We use education as the weapon through which we would steadily change Malaysia and cause it to start focusing on the right priorities such as saving the environment and combating climate change by engaging the younger generation because they will be more affected by these matters than us the older generations.

All of us are playing an important role in respecting and caring for the environment.

There is no better place to start recycling education than at school, as students can then learn about the advantages and benefits of recycling and how to go about doing it. As they grow up, it then becomes a habit. They can bring the good habit home, and educate their parents and other family members.

We hope our project will become a change agent to educate our people on how certain items can be recycled and put the plastic bottle to better use.

PARTNERSHIP COLLABORATION BETWEEN
HIROYUKI & ALBIREX NIIGATA FC SINGAPORE

 

On 24th February 2022, Hiroyuki Industries (M) Sdn Bhd signed the Partnership Contract with Albirex Singapore PTE LTD (Albirex Niigata Football Club Singapore), for the sponsor of  Albirex Singapore football school.

SIGNING CEREMONY BETWEEN HIROYUKI & STARLINGER FOR EXPANSION CAPACITY OF FOOD-GRADE rPET RESINS ON 14th NOVEMBER 2021

Hiroyuki Industries (M) Sdn Bhd today announced the expansion of rPET resin capacity to new milestone of 20,000 tonnes by 2023. This facility will become ASEAN’s largest post-consumer PET bottle recycling plant converting locally post-consumer bottles into high quality food grade rPET resin. Hiroyuki sorting process facility include Halal compliances of washing procedure (SERTU).
Hiroyuki collaborates with solid waste collectors and most of the international brand owners & local brand owners to reprocess post-consumer bottles in our facility. Many brand owners have committed to reduce their reliance on virgin plastic by 2025. The study by the PET Recycling Team GmbH in Wöllersdorf has a carbon footprint of 0.45 kg CO2-equivalent per kilogram of rPET. So called virgin PET (new material) produces 2.15 kg CO2-equivalent per kilogram PET. rPET therefore reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 1.7 kg CO2-equivalent or by 79% when compared to virgin PET. With the savings produced by only 1 kg rPET it would be possible to light a 13 Watt lightbulb for 20 days.

Recent report showed that Malaysia is one of the lowest recycle rates among ASEAN countries and Hiroyuki launched the CSR Program to collect post-consumer PET bottle from primary school in Johor Bahru since Apr 2021.

This facility will enable food and beverage manufacturers to include locally processed recycled content in their packaging providing a major benefit to the environment. It will mean more plastic material will be given a second life as new food grade packaging such as turning a bottle back into a new drinking bottle.

This new recycling facility highlights the progress we are making in expanding our recycling capability, a core component of our growth strategy. We are committed to leading the way in creating a strong, local circular economy that diverts waste materials from landfill and uses them to deliver sustainably manufactured products, including recycled packaging solutions that are increasingly in demand. With this in mind, we are delighted to be able to lead the development of this new industry in Malaysia which will also create hundreds of new jobs and support the national manufacturing industry.

This 20,000-tonne Bottle to Bottle facility is a huge win for the environment by creating a high value, recycled raw material from plastic waste which we collect and sort through our network.
We are very proud to have YB Dato’ Sri Dr. Adham Bin Baba, Malaysia Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation presence to witness this grand signing ceremony. Not to forget also, thanks for the continuous commitment from Coca-Cola, Etika (PepsiCo), MBWA members Life Water & Malee and etc to include recycled content in their packaging.

Our missions are to be a company friendly to the earth and people. We would like to deliver the best products and aim to contribute to the world widely by challenging the development of products with reduced environmental burden and promotion of recycling. Last but not least, we determine to create a sustainable environment where we see waste as a resource and aim to assist Malaysians to improve current recycling rates from 22% to 90% like Japan.

SAFETY ASSESSMENT OF THE PROCESS HIROYUKI INDUSTRIES, BASED ON STARLINGER IV+ TECHNOLOGY, USED TO RECYCLE POST‐CONSUMER PET INTO FOOD CONTACT MATERIALS

The EFSA Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes and Processing Aids (CEP) assessed the safety of the recycling process HIROYUKI INDUSTRIES (EU register number RECYC198), which uses the Starlinger iV+ technology. The input is hot caustic washed and dried poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) flakes mainly originating from collected post‐consumer PET containers, with no more than 5% PET from non‐food consumer applications. The flakes are dried and crystallised in a first reactor, then extruded into pellets. These pellets are crystallised, preheated and treated in a solid‐state polycondensation (SSP) reactor. Having examined the challenge test provided, the Panel concluded that the drying and crystallisation (step 2), extrusion and crystallisation (step 3) and SSP (step 4) are critical in determining the decontamination efficiency of the process. The operating parameters to control the performance of these critical steps are temperature, air flow and residence time for the drying and crystallisation step, and temperature, pressure and residence time for the extrusion and crystallisation step, as well as the SSP step. It was demonstrated that this recycling process is able to ensure that the level of migration of potential unknown contaminants into food is below the conservatively modelled migration of 0.1 μg/kg food. Therefore, the Panel concluded that the recycled PET obtained from this process is not of safety concern, when used at up to 100% for the manufacture of materials and articles for contact with all types of foodstuffs for long‐term storage at room temperature, with or without hotfill. The final articles made of this recycled PET are not intended to be used in microwave and conventional ovens and such uses are not covered by this evaluation.
