GO CARBON NEUTRAL WITH MOUNTAIN PLASTIC

Every enterprise and individual produce their own share of carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Whether it is from transportation, home appliances and utilities, or food, we all have a part to play in adding to the global climate crisis. So what do we do about it? Reduce emissions as much as possible and then offset the rest through a tax receiptable donation or payment to Mountain Plastic. All donations go towards the Mountain Plastic Vocational Training Program at Himalayan Life Plastics. This program recycles 40 million bottles and offsets 4,000 tons of CO2 per year.

THIRD-PARTY VERIFICATION

Mountain Plastic is currently in the process of third party verification and accreditation for our carbon offsets. We have provided preliminary calculations of total CO2 offset through the PET bottle recycling at Himalayan Life Plastics along with a high-level overview of how carbon offsets are generated.

For virgin PET we have life cycle analysis data via the OpenLCA platform that indicates that virgin food-grade PET granulate has a carbon footprint of 2.9227 kgCO2 and 0.0189 kgCH4 (equivalent to 0.5298 kgCO2) for a total footprint of 3.4525 kgCO2e per kg of finished product. So, the saving from our production of 1,500 tonnes of rPET pellets is going to be compared to the 5,179 tCO2for the production of the same quantity and quality of virgin PET. Over 5,000 tons of carbon a year are offset through Mountain Plastic.
