Project Report | Dec 14, 2022
Solar Powered Mantanani Plastic Recycling Centre

By Liyana Salleh | Communications Executive

Installing solar power panels at MPRC
Installing solar power panels at MPRC

We have a little recycling centre on Mantanani Island, Sabah, called the Mantanani Plastic Recycling Centre (MPRC). All the collected waste will be sorted at the MPRC either to be sent to the landfill or recycled.

Aligning with our goal to make it sustainable, we embarked on a solar installation project for the MPRC. In August 2022, the solar system was installed. The solar system covers Reef Check Malaysia's building areas, i.e. the recycling centre and the Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) processing factory. However, it was not enough to power all of the machines. It was only sufficient to power fans, light bulbs, field offices, and several machines in the VCO building.

Recently, the solar system was upgraded, and it can now also power the Baler machine and the extruder machine used for recycling. This means that the MPRC is fully solar-powered!

Together, we can achieve great things. We thank you for being on this journey with us. Step by step, we will get far. Your kindness and continuous support will light the way.
