Tomra - i samtaler med myndighetene Kina og India om pant!


Ja, det står det å lese hos Recycling International i dag. Kilden er Wolfgang Ringel, senior vice-president for governmental affairs i Tomra, under en konferanse om resirkulering av PET i Belgia. PET som er den vanligste plasttypen når det gjelder flaskene som samles inn av pantemaskiner. Jeg vet ikke mer enn det som står her, men vet at Kina har rundt 1.4 milliarder innbyggere og India omtrent det samme (tilsammen har de to landene 35 - 36% av jordens befolkning). I tillegg har jeg rimelig god fantasi, tror jeg og glemmer ikke så lett noen setninger CEO Stefan Ranstrand avleverte under Capital Markets Day høsten 2018. Det er disse to jeg husker spesielt godt. "Until now we've only seen the lab version of Tomra, now it's time for the real Tomra." "We feel we've got a very clear view of the next five years." Det er spennende tider med Tomra. :)


How essential are desposit return schemes?

Robin Latchem – March 26, 2019


Reverse vending machine specialist Tomra says it has held talks with authorities in China and India over the possible introduction of deposit return schemes for beverage containers.

...

Tomra is now trying to open the door to such schemes in Asia, Wolfgang Ringel, senior vice-president for governmental affairs at Tomra, told delegates of a recent conference in Brussels. He advocated the importance of smarter collection and sorting in Europe for PET products such as drinks bottles and food trays.

The event was organised by Petcore Europe and was the second of two conferences aimed at boosting PET recycling. Ringel mentioned the initial contacts with India and China when he presented data showing how almost all the top recycling nations in Europe used a form of DRS.

Fantastisk at Tomra nå offisiellt bekrefter dette!! Kina og Inda kommer til å bli ekstreme markeder for Tomra. Det er derfor jeg føler/mener at muligheten er stor for at vi får et oppkjøp av Tomra snart. Dette tror jeg ikke våre nasjonalt opptatte meglere/analytikere har fått med seg enda!!

Fremtiden er MEGET lys for oss TOMRA aksjonærer!!!

Ja KanonBra5, slik jeg kjenner Tomra, er dette nesten helt sikkert ikke bare røyk uten ild når man nå VELGER å fortelle offentligheten om disse samtalene man har hatt med myndigheter både i Kina og India om innføring av pant. Dimensjonene vi står overfor hvis disse to nasjonene skal innføre pant, er jo så store at det knapt er begripelig. Så fremtiden føles lys ja, og det gjelder for alt Tomra driver med.

Enig med deg Kommentatoren og Stefan Ranstrand

Dette betyr starten på slutten! Kinamann kommer til å knabbe teknologien og spy ut pantemaskiner for 1/10 av prisen.

Her kan jeg berolige deg Blekkndekker. Tomra-ledelsen ble nemlig konfrontert med denne problematikken av en analytiker under Q & A som etterfulgte en kvartalspresentasjon. Svaret var at kjerneteknologien er innkapslet så ingen problemer/farer eksisterer i det henseendet. Når det gjelder pant i Kina er Tomra i et joint venture som heter Incom.

Forøvrig er det ikke bare innen pant Tomra har en stor fremtid i Kina. Tomra har vært i Kina siden 2009, og jeg har meget store forventninger til selskapet i Kina både når det gjelder Sorting Food og Sorting Recycling. Så her er det bare å følge med!


Naivt å tro at ikke Kinamann klarer og kopiere/stjele denne teknologien. Ellers så er det ingen tvil om at Tomra er i en oppstrøms bransje.

Har stor tiltro til Tomra-ledelsen, men kan selvsagt ikke utelukke at de er naive og at du vet bedre Blekkndekker, men tviler. Oppstrøms er bare forbokstaven når det gjelder alle Tomras 4 forretningsområder. Vi snakker 4 x megatrend.

Du, Mr. Dekk.

Kan hende Kina vil kopiere teknologien, men de klarer ikke å kopiere Tomra sin teknologi. Alt av teknologi som sendes til Kina er kryptert nettopp på grunn av det du frykter. Kina er avhengig av Tomra om de skal nå klimamålene sine, og de kommer til å måtte kjøpe i bøtter og spann av verdens mest fantastiske selskap.

Og en annen ting er at det handler om mye mer en selve panteautomatene. Man må også ha apperatet (service, pante logistikk, osv) og kunnskapen rundt dette. Dette er definitivt ikke noe man bygger opp i løpet av natten!

Veldig interessant at Forbes hevder at NÅ er tiden for å investere i resirkulering og sirkulær økonomi i India. Ikke lett å komme utenom Tomra da! Tomra som har ca. 60% global markedsandel innen sortering for resirkulering og ca. 75% global markedsandel innen innsamling for resirkulering (pantesystemer). Tomra som vi vet at allerede har vært i samtaler med indiske myndigheter om innføring av pant (se trådstart). Så følg linken og les hele artikkelen fra Forbes.

Now's the Time To Invest In Recycling And Circular Economy in India

Rob Kaplan Contributor
Banking & Insurance
I write about environmental investing and corporate leadership


With India about to close loopholes to its ban on importing trash following the implementation of China’s National Sword policy ban on trash imports, parts of the global recycling industry are in flux. (I have previously written about the impact – real and perceived -- of China’s ban on trash imports on the U.S. recycling market and what we should do about it.)

Recent stories in The Wall Street Journal, among others, call out the significance of these bans on the global recycling industry.

Behind China, India is by far the largest economy contributing to the world’s ocean plastic. Due to underdeveloped recycling and waste management sectors in the region, it is worth a closer examination of the effect these important bans might have on investment opportunities in the Indian recycling sector. The good news is that there are a number of reasons for investor optimism:

Dere ser selv hva denne trådstarten fra mars i år handler om. Indias statsminister Narendra Modi var mulligens den taleren som holdt den appellen som gjorde sterkest inntrykk under FNs klimadag i New York nå mandag 23.september. Ikke minst forkynte han India nå erklærer "krig" mot plastforurensning. Mahatma Gandhis fødselsdag er høytidsdag i India. Onsdag (2.oktober) er det 150 år siden Mahatma Gandhi ble født. Statsminister Narendra Modi har bebudet at han den dagen vil presentere en gigantisk handlingsplan mot plastforurensningen i India og lede landet i retning av en sirkulær økonomi. I den forbindelse er det godt å vite at Tomra lenge har vært i dialog med myndigheter i India (se trådstart). Tomra er soleklar global markedsleder innen teknologi for såvel innsamling av plastflasker (pantesystemer) som sortering av blandet plastavfall. Blir spennende å høre hva Modi kommer med på onsdag. Feelingen er god, vil jeg si. India har oppunder 1.4 milliarder innbyggere så her kan vi få se dimensjoner på f.eks. panteprosjekter hvis størrelse det er vanskelig å forestille seg...

Som dere kan lese i denne Bloomberg-artikkelen legger nå India til rette for og inviterer globalt næringsliv til landet.

Modi Tells Investors ‘Come to India’ to Aid $5 Trillion GDP Goal

By Archana Chaudhary and Bibhudatta Pradhan

* Commits to more than double nation’s renewable energy target
* Wants India free from single-use plastics, harvest rainwater


Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged global businesses to “come to India” as his government seeks to build a $5 trillion economy by 2025.

His address to chief executives at a summit in New York comes less than a week after India delivered a $20-billion tax-cut stimulus to help shore up the $2.6-trillion economy that’s growing at the slowest rate in six years amid 45-year-high unemployment.

“India is waiting for you,” Modi told political and business leaders at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum. “India is the only destination for you.”

Competitive Rates

Modi, who met energy company CEOs in Houston, is meeting more than 40 major companies, including Lockheed Martin Corp., American Tower Corp., Mastercard Inc. and Walmart Inc. at the forum hosted by Michael R. Bloomberg, the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.

“Just recently we have decided to considerably reduce corporate tax,” Modi said, calling the move revolutionary. “If you want to invest in a market where there’s scale, come to India.”

The cut in corporate tax rates puts India on par with some of the lowest in Asia to help the south Asian nation compete with the likes of Vietnam and Indonesia for investments in the midst of ongoing global trade tensions. Attracting investments is key to revive economic growth and put the nation on the path to becoming a $5-trillion economy by 2025.

...

“We believe the Earth is our mother and we do not have the right to exploit,” Modi said. “We only have the right to use it for our needs.”

Modi reiterated India’s intent to implement a $50-billion-plan for rainwater harvesting and water conservation and ban single-use plastic. The prime minister said that Oct. 2, celebrated as the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, would mark a “significant step” toward making India “free” from single-use plastic.

New Delhi: Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts to restrict use of single-use plastic in the country to tackle the rising threat of pollution and health hazards, more and more companies are limiting the use of such items.

India is likely to impose a nationwide ban on plastic bags, cups, small bottles, straws and some types of sachets next month.

Among the steps taken by companies are introduction of alternatives to plastic in their stores and committing to fully recycling PET waste.

India says goodbye to single-use plastics on 2 October, Gandhi’s birthday

ENVIRONMENT Published on 30 SEP 2019 by GURVINDER SINGH Kolkata, India


n Mahatma Gandhi's birthday, India is set to take a big leap towards protecting the environment by bidding goodbye to single-use plastic items. But how this will play out is yet to be announced.
The day chosen to begin the campaign against single-use plastics coincides with Mahatma Gandhi‘s birthday, marking 150 years since the birth of the man revered as the father of the nation, who walked the path of non-violence to free India from the slavery of British rule, which lasted nearly two centuries. India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi used his Independence Day speech on 15 August to urge people and government agencies to “take the first big step” on the 2nd of October towards freeing the country from single-use plastic.

What are single-use plastics

Single-use plastics are those disposable products that are intended to be used only once, for example in the packaging of food and items bought on e-commerce platforms. The most common items are carrier bags, drinking bottles, bottle caps, food wrappers, plastic grocery bags, sachets, multi-layer food packaging, straws and stirrers, among others.

India generates around 25,940 tonnes of plastic waste a day, according to a 2017 report by the Central Pollution Control Board, which extrapolated data from 60 major cities in the country. Speculations are rife that the government might declare a blanket ban on the manufacture, use and importation of single-use plastics on Gandhi’s birthday, but nothing has been formally announced yet.

“Goodbye” to single-use plastic on Gandhi’s birthday


"Some people, by mistake, are talking about plastic-free India. I haven’t said this. I’ve said that single-use plastic, which comes to use only once, causes a lot of problems."

Narendra Modi, 30 September


“Prime Minister Modi didn’t say ‘ban’, but said ‘goodbye’ to single-use plastic waste – Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, said –. From the 2nd of October we’ll begin an attempt to collect all that waste. Nearly 10,000 tonnes of plastic waste remains uncollected”.

Those working against the plastic menace have welcomed any move by the government to ban its use. “It would certainly be a commendable step if the government bans it but the production of single-use plastic should also be stopped,” says Naba Dutta, secretary of Sabuj Mancha, a civil society organisation working for the environment. “Consumption of single-use plastic has increased drastically in the past few years, replacing biogradable packaging materials mainly because the former is cheaper and easily available. Plastic is impacting almost every sphere of life. The government should make a clear roadmap for dealing with it. But shortage of manpower could also become an issue in implementing the ban”.

Opposition to the move

The opposition Indian National Congress party has, however, termed Modi’s a populist measure aimed at seeking publicity and political mileage rather than making any concrete changes on the ground. Amidst rumours of the ban, former minister Jairam Ramesh slammed such a move as a bad idea. “As Environment Minister I resisted a blanket ban on use of single-use plastic. The plastic industry employs lakhs and the real problem is how we dispose of and recycle waste,” he wrote in a tweet. “The ban will only grab headlines, home and abroad, and mask the Modi regime’s true environmental record,” he added.

The Indian plastics industry has also echoed a similar sentiment, saying that the ban, if implemented, would have a far-fetching negative effect. Around five million people spread across 50,000 processing units in India work in this sector, which recorded an annual revenue of around 50 billion US dollars (3.5 trillion Rupees) in 2019. “The ban is likely to affect 400,000 people who could become unemployed overnight,” commented Hiten Bheda, Chairman of the Environment Committee of the All India Plastic Manufacturers Association. “The consumption of raw material might also come down by 5 to 7 per cent. I think the government will take some rational decision as it is connected with the livelihood of several people but a few states in India have already implemented the ban and the government might follow suit”.

The government is yet to make its stance clear on the ban but mere speculation has surely pressed the panic button among those connected with the industry, while also heightened the resolve of those who wish to see a country not suffocating on plastic pollution. Even Gandhiji might be turning in his grave to know what suspense his birthday holds this year.
