COLIBA is a social enterprise specializing in the collection and recycling of plastic waste using a web, mobile and SMS platform, which puts households and companies producing plastic waste in touch with affiliated collectors. In exchange for the plastic collected, households receive points convertible into internet data, a beauty product, and soon into basic food products.
The plastics collected are then sent to a sorting center in order to follow a selection process during which the materials are separated according to typology, quality and color. These plastics are then transferred to the recycling plant to be transformed into flakes and granules according to a rigorous industrial process.
Our short-term objective at the end of the year is to pass the 1000 T mark of flakes produced and sold. Also, our goal within 2 years is to expand the production capacity of our factory. The aim will be to build a new factory with a production capacity of between 10,000 and 15,000 tones of production and occupied a market share of 10 to 17% in terms of plastic waste collection in Côte d’Ivoire. Open two countries within three years in the sub-region.
