What is Ocean Bound Plastic?

The term Ocean Bound Plastic was first popularized by Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Georgia, Jenna Jembeck in 2015. Jenna Jembeck published a publication in Science about research into how much plastic waste from land ends up being carried into the ocean. Since then, the term for plastic waste in coastal areas has become known as Ocean Bound Plastic . After examining this publication further, it can be concluded that Ocean Bound Plastic is plastic waste on land that is not accessible; either due to human activity, or natural phenomena that cause rubbish to end up in the ocean. This waste includes broken plastic particles, up to solid plastic waste such as plastic drinking water bottles, plastic shampoo bottles, plastic oil bottles, and various other types of used plastic. Ocean Bound Plastic fills the ocean from 5 kilometers from the coast to the middle of the sea. This of course makes marine researchers and academics more concerned about solutions for a more sustainable life.

Why does Ocean Bound Plastic happen?

The main cause of waste spilling into the ocean is negligence in waste management from individual activities or industrial activities. According to Jenna Jembeck, in 2010 there were 8 billion tons of plastic waste carried by land activities within a distance of 50 km from the coast to the sea. This is equivalent to 5 plastic bags filled with plastic waste that you will find on every inch of beaches in the world. "This is a very large amount of plastic waste." Jenna Jembeck's research results raise awareness that industry and even state level action is needed to create policies and significant movements that can help reduce plastic waste in the ocean.

Langgeng Jaya Group for Ocean Bound Plastic

Recycling management organizations have an effective role in reducing Ocean Bound Plastic. Langggeng Jaya Group is actively involved in being the driving force. In line with the researchers' main goal of reducing plastic waste that ends up in the ocean, we are committed to sustainably increasing the capacity to manage plastic waste in Indonesia. Langgeng Jaya Group focuses on technological innovation in the machines it develops. We have succeeded in managing various types of plastic waste into recycled products that have useful value.

Currently, we have efficiently helped reduce waste as a countermeasure to Ocean Bound Plastic.


is the only company with the highest recycling production in Indonesia. We have successfully reduced 72,000 tons of plastic drinking water bottle waste in the ocean to produce rPET Flakes in 2021.


To help prevent waste from ending up in the ocean, we managed to recycle 7,200 tons of plastic oil bottles, shampoo bottles and various other beauty products bottles to produce rHDPE Pellets.

Not limited to rPET and rHDPE production, Langgeng Jaya Group simultaneously produces recycled plastic pellets for semi-finished products to finished products. These products include; Polyester Staple Fiber (PSF), various types of padding, woven bags, planter bags and shopping bags. This product differentiation certainly inspires other industries to take wise steps in choosing more sustainable product raw materials.
