Abstract for: Circularity policies in Plastic Dynamics, a case for Indonesia

In 2019, Indonesia manufactured 4.5 million tons of single-use plastics, and it is estimated that by 2030 6.2 million tons will be manufactured. Only 10% of the plastic produced annually can be recycled, making it an environmental problem that affects everyone. Like other countries, Indonesia has levels of pollution in rivers and oceans that put the health of the human population and wildlife at risk. To deal with this situation, they have implemented a circular economy that will allow them to help the environment without affecting the economy. To reduce Plastics in Rivers and Oceans by 70% in 2025. Indonesia implemented the following five policies: reduce the use of single-use plastics, use innovative recyclable plastic materials, substitute materials, reduce the recycling rate and improve waste collection rates.  We built a Stock and Flows model to explore this system and to discover if the implemented policies will be enough to achieve the goal proposed by Indonesia.
