Paul Jordaan has been appointed Project Manager for both the Polystyrene Association of South Africa and the Southern African Vinyls Association (SAVA), with specific focus on providing assistance with their submissions for an Industry Waste Management Plan (IWMP), following the Department of Environmental Affair’s Section 28 call made to the paper & packaging industry, electrical & electronic industry and lighting industry.
Paul is a 26-year old Capetonian who matriculated at Paul Roos Gymnasium in Stellenbosch, before obtaining his BSc Agric Conservation Ecology degree from the University of Stellenbosch in 2015, for which he received cum laude distinction and the Daniel Booysen Award for his final year thesis. He went on to complete his Master’s degrees at the same institution, specialising in Sustainable Agriculture with his thesis entitled, “Evaluating the sustainable potential of biogas generation in South Africa”.
Commenting on his new focus on the local waste management and industry recycling, Paul says he has been enjoying learning about the industry and getting to grips with some of the issues it faces. “It is a very exciting time to get involved with the plastics industry in particular, as there are many exciting opportunities and interesting developments that can be unlocked through the development of new end markets for recycled materials, contributing towards a more sustainable approach” he says.
“I believe that we are standing on the cusp of an era where great changes and radical movement towards a more sustainable way of life will be thrust upon us. For this reason, a conscious effort for improved environmental management and sustainability is of great importance,” Paul adds.
He is a passionate outdoorsman who loves working with people. Paul describes himself as an adventurous, passionate, driven, and patient person and looks forward to working with all the role players in the local plastics and recycling industries.
