Barrier PET Containers Highlighted at Husky Booth

Husky’s Multi-Layer Experience Center will be a highlight of its booth.

If you’re interested in advanced PET barrier packaging, head over to the Multi-Layer Experience Center at Booth W1303, where Husky Injection Molding Systems is prepared to dazzle visitors with concepts for light, oxygen, and carbon dioxide barrier containers, as well as PET bottles with exciting new design and functional treatments that dramatically enhance shelf appeal.

Originally introduced at NPE2015, Husky’s multi-layer co-injected preform technology is said offer enhanced security of barrier performance while reducing total cost. Since 2015, more than 30 of these systems have been sold around the world for applications including carbonated soft drinks, juice, sparkling water, tea, dairy, food, and personal care.

“We are able to support our customers’ ability to design and deliver packaging that responds to the demands of a rapidly changing society. That includes the need for flexible solutions that are more sustainable,” says Dave Morton, v.p. of multi-layer technology. “Our multi-layer technology, paired with new recyclable barrier materials, delivers on this need by providing a functional package that protects the product more efficiently from both a material and total cost perspective.”

The centerpiece of Husky’s booth is its fully integrated HyPET 225 preform molding system, running an 11-g preform in 48 cavities with an 8.2-sec cycle time. Again, the key words are flexibility and productivity. Today, the company is looking beyond just offering more efficient processing equipment and towards the total end-to-end lifecycle of the equipment and molded parts. Husky’s touchstone is “flexible and adaptive manufacturing solutions” for the rapidly changing world that Morton cited. Husky will discuss tooling technologies and OEM spare parts and services that optimize production processes while extending the life of manufacturing equipment and reducing total part costs.

“Over the last several years, we have invested significantly to further advance our already state-of-the-art equipment. We will always invest in research and development and in building partnerships to be the innovation leader. It’s simply how we define ourselves,” says John Galt, Husky’s president and CEO.

Results of that R&D effort will be presented in the Bottle Zone Technical Forum, new this year at NPE, in talks by Husky subject-matter experts throughout the duration of the show. Another area to look for new developments is in Husky’s valve-gate hot-runner technology, which the company says is providing “incredible gate quality over millions of cycles with reduced cost of ownership.”

Starlinger: 300th Conversion Line For AD*STAR Block Bottom Valve Sacks

Starlinger Conversion Line ADSTAR Block Bottom Valve Sacks VIENNA, Austria— The production of robust sacks is not only based on high-quality polypropylene fabric made from woven tapes, but also on precise sack conversion. In the case of AD*STAR block bottom valve sacks, this important process step is performed on the conversion line ad*starKON. In early 2018, the 300th line of this type was installed on the Philippines.

The Philippine-based packaging manufacturer Sakomoto International Packaging Corp. supplies the local cement industry with AD*STAR sacks made of polypropylene fabric. In Caloocan City in the Philippine district Metro Manila, Sakomoto operates numerous tape extrusion lines, circular looms as well as lines for coating, printing, and sack conversion from Austrian world market leader Starlinger.

“There is a long-standing customer relationship between Starlinger and Sakomoto,” explained Franz Steiner, who has known the customer since 2009. “Both sides value the excellent cooperation on the level of sales, service, and management.” Sakomoto produces around 500 million sacks every year – a figure that will increase even more, as the installed capacity is constantly extended to supply the growing cement market with packaging. Philippine cement plants are increasingly recognizing the numerous advantages of AD*STAR sacks over paper sacks, causing the market share of AD*STAR sacks to rise continuously. In early 2018, two sack conversion lines were commissioned at Sakomoto; notably, one of these machines is the 300th ad*starKON delivered by Starlinger. Furthermore, both machines belong to the first ones of the new generation ad*starKON HX.

The new series ad*starKON HX features extremely precise sack conversion at an operating speed of up to 140 AD*STAR sacks per minute. This increase in output of about 40 % compared to its preceding model is mainly achieved with the feature iMOVE, which dynamically adjusts bag transportation. For the customer, this means not just higher efficiency, but also lower energy costs and reduced manpower, as a higher number of sacks is produced in the same amount of time with the same energy consumption. Apart from capacity, product quality plays an important role in sack production: This quality is perfected with the features iSHAPE and iPATCH, which ensure that each sack receives a precisely formed bottom and tailored cover and bottom patches. Other advantages of the line are the easily accessible dual stacking unit as well as the large format range for the production of sacks with a capacity of 4.5 to 100 liters. In addition, both lines at Sakomoto are equipped with the optionally available microperforation unit microSTAR+ for high air permeability and the quality management system qualiSTAR II.

Advantages in handling, storage, and transport

AD*STAR sacks are ideally suited to packaging dry bulk goods such as building materials due to their high break resistance coupled with a low deadweight. The brick-shaped sacks are extremely tight and robust, which results in enormous advantages in handling, storage, and transport. In cement filling, the excellent suitability of the sacks for use on the most modern filling lines as well as automatic palletizing is essential considering that a smooth packaging process saves time and costs. Sack quality also has a positive influence on the working conditions in cement filling plants, as the tightness of the sacks significantly reduces the creation of dust. And the environment likewise benefits from the use of AD*STAR sacks: Low breakage rates save material as well as CO2 because there is no need to replace any damaged goods or packaging – a clear advantage over sacks made of paper or recycled polypropylene.

Key technology for tomorrow: Treofan develops thermally stable separator film for e-mobility

Treofan is a partner in the HiT-Cell research project

Treofan thermally stable separator film High Temperature Cell Raunheim, GERMANY – Based on its tried-and-tested nano-porous TreoPore separator film, the BOPP film specialist Treofan is developing a low-loss, thermally stable and safe separator for lithium-ion battery cells as part of the HiT-Cell (High-Temperature Cell) research project. The aim is to develop a temperature-stable lithium-ion battery for all mobile and stationary applications.Compared to currently available polyolefinic separators, the new, innovative separator will havesi gnificantly higher temperature stability. With these improved properties, the new separator film will be particularly suitable for use in lithium-ion battery cells used in electric mobility. Although today’s conventional, ceramic separator coatings do increase the safety of lithium-ion battery cells, they are not always able to prevent the separators from collapsing under thermal stress. Such coatings also lead to additional resistance in the cell. This resistance heats the cell, especially during rapid charging and discharging, which can lead to a reduction in the service life. The new separator film by Treofan will significantly increase thermal stability and thus the safety of the battery cell.’We are delighted to be collaborating with our partners on this pioneering project and using our expertise to advance a key technology for the future,’ explains Dr Franz Josef Kruger, head of the TreoPore business unit at Treofan.

The project is being led by Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany. The project partners are:
– Treofan (development of thermally stable separator film)
– EAS Germany (project management and cell production)
– RWTH Aachen University, Germany (further development of electrode production)
– MEET Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology, Germany (development of active electrode materials)

The HiT-Cell project is being publicly funded with almost 2 million Euros by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany (BMBF) in the area of ‘Battery 2020 – battery materials for future electro-mobile and stationary applications’. The project will run until the end of 2020.

May contract price paraxylene Europe MOSCOW – The contract price of paraxylene in Europe for May deliveries was finally agreed higher at EUR20 per ton higher than the April price, ICIS reported citing market participants.

Thus, the contract prices of paraxylene in Europe for May deliveries were agreed at the level of EUR830 per tonne, FD NWE.

The contract price was agreed on terms of free delivery – FD NWE (North-Western Europe).

Earlier it was reported that the contract price of paraxylene in Europe for April supplies was finally agreed at the level of EUR810 per ton, which is the prolongation of the contract price for the March contract.

Paraxylene is a raw material for the synthesis of terephthalic acid – a semi-product for the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

According to the Price Review of ICIS-MRC , the situation of shortage of spot volumes of granulate in the Russian market by the end of April has become even more acute. Insignificant free volumes on the spot for May are available only from the Alco-Nafta plant. Last week, SIBUR raised the indicative value of its material at the Sibur-PET and Polyef plants from 100,000 rubles. for a ton up to 105 000 rubles. per ton, FCA plant, including VAT. There are no spot volumes.

Focus on Renewable Chemicals Expands for Braskem

.

“We are seeing more and more people, companies and government rise to the environmental challenge. Over the last few years, as climate change has grown in the public’s consciousness, we’ve seen a rise in business offering citizens ways to reduce their environmental impact. The power of the consumer’s wallet can drive change, through electric vehicles, solar energy, greener products and more responsible brands,” says Gustavo Sergi, director of Braskem’s Renewable Chemicals business, responding to my inquiry on key trends they are addressing and emphasizing at BOOTH S22001.

Braskem is reinforcing its position in the U.S., within its renewable chemicals focus, by presenting some of its latest partnerships and consolidation of its business. Braskem’s Renewable Chemicals segment is, in fact, expanding its operation in Boston. In direct support of this expanded vision, the company will be investing in the launch of a new Boston-based Renewable Chemistry Research Center focused on the development of new chemicals and materials derived from sustainable feedstocks that can serve as replacements for their current petroleum-based counterparts.

Within the last couple of years, Braskem has entered into technological cooperation agreements with U.S. renewable products company Amyris and French tire maker Michelin to develop technology for the production of biobased isoprene, a chemical feedstock used by the tire industry, and other rubber products. The technology is developed from plant sugars, such as those found in sugarcane and cellulosic feedstocks.

Braskem also continues to make progress on the joint development of a new technology for the production of biobased butadiene in partnership with U.S. biotechnology company Genomatica. That agreement aims to supply green butadiene primarily to the synthetic rubber market. The current naphtha-based butadiene is also a key raw material for some key volume plastics, including ABS.

Just last year, Braskem announced the launch of a demonstration plant to develop a pioneering route to produce monoethylene glycol (MEG) from sugar. This, through a partnership with Haldor Topsoe, of Denmark, where the demo plant is being situated. Notes Sergi, “MEG is a key component of PET resins—the main man-made raw material used by the textile and packaging industries that is also widely used to make clear plastic bottles. The partnership is developing new technology which will allow Braskem to push renewable chemistry to a whole new level. After I’m Green PE (bio-PE), this is another major step forward in Braskem’s vision of using renewable chemicals as a carbon capture tool.”

European Commission proposes taxing non-recycled plastic packaging waste after Brexit – European Commission taxing nonrecycled plastic packaging waste Brexit

European Commission proposes taxing non-recycled plastic packaging waste after Brexit

The European Commission has announced plans to tax non-recycled plastic packaging waste in the new EU budget, following Britain’s exit next.

European Commission taxing nonrecycled plastic packaging waste Brexit

It has suggested European Union nations contribute new funds to the bloc’s budget to fill the gap left by Britain’s impending exit by taxing digital services, plastic waste and carbon emissions.

EU governments may be ordered to pay 80 cents per kilogram of non-recycled plastic packaging waste – which could total €7bn for the budget.

The proposal, unveiled in the Multiannual Financial Framework, focuses on taxing the quantity of plastic packaging waste generated in each member state that is not recycled.

Rethink Plastic, an alliance of leading of anti-plastic pollution European NGOs, argued that the proposed budget would prioritise recycling over prevention and reuse.

It said the budget  proposal does not include an incentive to encourage the reduction of plastic at source, nor for improved collection.

“Rather than making polluters pay by internalising the costs of plastic waste, member states – hence taxpayers – will have to foot the bill for companies that continue to place plastics that are non-recyclable, or can only be downcycled to a lower value, on the market,” it said.

It also suggested that even if member states meet the new plastic packaging recycling target of 55% by 2030, they will still have to pay the tax.
