Santo Domingo.-The Dominican Industries Association (AIRD) and govt. program Dominicana Limpia (clean) on Tues. agreed to work together to strengthen recycling and educational actions in the sectors of plastic and construction materials.
The agreement bolsters the pacts between the AIRD and the Inter-American Development Bank in its capacity as administrator of the Multilateral Investment Fund, to conduct an Innovation and Remanufacturing Program in the plastic and construction sectors.
“This BID-AIRD project seeks to promote productive processes that allow the reuse of waste generated by these sectors, generating a change in behavior in a group of local companies in a way that favors a sustainable production model and that takes maximum advantage of the amount of post-industrial and post-consumer waste generated in the Dominican Republic in a logic of circular economy,” says a statement by Dominicana Limpia coordinator Domingo Contreras, and AIRD president Celso Juan Marranzini.
