Episode 34
15 min / Published

In this special episode of the GPCA Podcast, Surendra Patawari, Founder and Chairman of Gemini Corporation, speaks to Aseel Al Masoudi, Member, GPCA Youth Council, and Commercial & Downstream Business Partner, OQ, on the sidelines of the 17th Annual GPCA Forum. 

Patawari opened the interview with a staggering statistic: “The world generates almost 1 million tons plastic waste and less than 10% is recycled. In the next three years this is going to triple,” he tells listeners. 

In an insightful conversation with the GPCA Podcast host, he covers pertinent topics ranging from:

  • Gemini Corporation’s work in plastic recycling 
  • His vision for the circular economy
  • How well is the GCC positioned to make the circular economy a reality?
  • Extended producer responsibility – its benefits and challenges
  • The industry’s role in addressing climate change 
  • The role of sustainability and transformation in securing the industry’s future
  • His impressions from this year’s forum
