Pranay Jain started EcoBlue in 2012 with a vision to bring end of life solutions for all hard to recycle plastics. He has helped create what is today one of the best examples of holistic solutions in plastics circularity.  EcoBlue has been at the forefront of innovations in the recycling industry being the first company in South East Asia to offer food grade rPET, rHDPE and rPP polymers. It is the first company in Thailand to adapt block-chain technology and social standards for improving the waste collection ecosystem. Pranay has also developed patented solutions for flexible packaging materials with coatings and inks, which are considered as hard-to-recycle materials. Pranay believes that true circularity can be achieved from bringing radical changes in the traditional model of EPR and gap financing.
