My name is Lina Ariyani and I am an analyst in the Jakarta office.
I joined the Pöyry Management Consulting team in 2016, in our Indonesia office. My background is Bioprocess Engineering. I am really keen to explore emerging topics related to my field of interest, and that’s what Pöyry offers me. At Pöyry, I have been involved in many exciting assignments; many of them are related to bio-industries and cutting-edge technologies. Frequently we get chances to work with our experts in Europe on assignments across Asia Pacific, Europe and America. It enables me to continuously learn from them as well as engage with the global trends. One of the projects I have been doing with our colleagues in Finland is about plastic substitution.
Plastic is a global concern for both people and the environment. The plastics ocean is huge and undeniable. This issue not only affects the ocean’s biodiversity, but it can also affect the whole food chain, including us. Numerous efforts have been made to cope with this problem, but are they effective?
At Pöyry, we have been working on the “Plastics Substitution Book”, a complete set of approaches to finding a realistic solution towards solving the plastics problem. A broad range of related aspects are covered, including the product compatibility, technologies, markets, legislations and more. The whole plastics substitution’s supply chain is complicated, but it is very important to understand. By understanding them, we can provide feasible solutions for industries and stakeholders.
The plastics substitution products are starting to be developed in many countries, including Asia. One of the examples is the one I’m holding in my selfie!
It is estimated that there will be massive developments of plastic substitutes in the near future. Beyond providing solutions to industries, we also get valuable opportunities to solve global plastic issues.
