Accra, Sept. 20, GNA – A Danish Company,
ExoXpac, would next year launch a business initiative in Ghana to use coconut
husks and pineapple wastes to produce bottles and food packs to substitute the
use of plastics.

The ExoXpac, which specialises in converting
biodegradable waste materials to useful products, would undertake the new
technology, in collaboration with the Council for Scientific and Industrial
Research, to promote economic growth and employment in Ghana.

Madam Gove Degnbol, the Denmark Ambassador to
Ghana, made this known when she led a Danish business delegation to pay a
courtesy call on the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Madam Cecilia
Abena Dapaah, to finalise details of the initiative.

Madam Degnbol praised Ghana for her economic
strides and said Denmark would share experiences with the country to transform
the economy through technology and strengthen the technical cooperation between
the two countries.

She gave the assurance that the technology
would help turn the waste products around to solve some of the sanitation
problems.

Madam Dapaah said the technology to be introduced
had confirmed government’s commitment to making the private sector the driver
of the One District One Factory Programme.

She said the country had made gains by
achieving several targets under the Millennium Development Goals yet lagged
behind in sanitation with its inherent health issues, hence the need to embrace
the biodegradable technology to curb the plastic waste menace.

Mr Michael Michelsen, the Global Business
Manager of EcoXpac, said he was proud to extend the new technology to Ghana and
gave the assurance that the company would provide exceptional services to
customers when it started operation.
