LONDON (ICIS)–The tightness of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) in Europe is such that the cost of material verges on inconsequential, sources said on Friday.

Price Europe PET market “It’s not a price issue anymore, it’s an availability issue,” a customer said.

Mid May and prices had already jumped significantly because of news of another upset in upstream production, but now price hikes of €100/tonne and more are being mentioned as potentially viable.

Price Europe PET market

As well as the €1,200s/tonne FD (free delivered) Europe now on the table, figures close to €1,400/tonne are apparently being discussed.

PET is tight globally. There is now a force majeure in Belgium, and a Spanish plant that is having to operate at technical minimum. There is little respite offered up in the form of imports. As a largely contractual market, Europe is faced with hardly any spare spot volumes during a period of very good demand (this being the high season).

Buyers may be forced to consider shutting production and wait for their preform and bottling customers to catch up in terms of prices, because at this rate the losses incurred in buying PET at today’s levels may be too great a risk to take.

“We discussed about a very short market already. Now we have a minus market. Buyers will have to stop [producing]…because there is no alternative. It is simply not there,” a seller said.

With the surprise of so little PET being made available prices are sky rocketing, but how long this price surge will last, nobody knows.

PET is used in fibres for clothing, containers and bottles for liquids and foods, thermoforming for manufacturing, and in combination with glass fibre for engineering resins.

Carvico, dismissed fishing net become  swimwear

New life to the plastic recovered from the seabed

Fashion is increasingly careful to the environmental question. Even more so if, as in the case of Carvico di Bergamo, you take care of creating technical fabrics for sportswear.Thus, a project of ample social value was born, to be realized on June 8th, the day in which the oceans and the seas are celebrated all over the world.

 

Carvico, le reti abbandonate diventano costumi

Nuova vita alla plastica recuperata dai fondali marini

Il recupero di una rete abbandonata

Carvico (Bergamo) – La moda è sempre più attenta alla questione ambientale. A maggior ragione se, come nel caso della Carvico di Bergamo, ti occupi di realizzare tessuti tecnici per l’abbigliamento sportivo. Nasce così, naturalmente, un progetto di ampio valore sociale da realizzare il prossimo 8 giugno giorno in cui in tutto il mondo si festeggiano gli oceani e i mari. Carvico, insieme ad Healthy Seas, Ghost Fishing e alla Cousteau Divers, ha scelto di celebrare questo giorno con un evento mondiale, tutto da seguire in diretta streaming: un reportage dai fondali dell’Isola di Santorini per capire cosa significa davvero inquinamento. In particolare il focus sarà posto sulla enorme quantità di plastica lasciata in acqua e sui fondali. La statistica mondiale è impietosa: 640mila tonnellate di reti da pesca abbandonate negli oceani, quasi 12 milioni di tonnellate di plastica gettate in mare ogni anno. Un disastro ambientale che è difficile vedere, ma che sta generando danni enormi e irreparabili.

Pierre-Yves Cousteau (figlio del mitico Jacques-Yves scomparso nel giugno di 21 anni fa) e il suo team, si occuperanno di recuperare le reti abbandonate e contestualmente trasmetteranno immagini straordinarie per raccontare al mondo intero cosa l’azione dell’uomo sta infliggendo alla flora e alla fauna marina e al bene più prezioso che abbiamo: l’acqua. Una sola rete fantasma, cattura circa il 5% della quantità di pesce commerciale mondiale, così come una sola gabbia abbandonata (solitamente usata per la cattura di granchi, aragoste e gamberetti) uccide 1775 esemplari in un anno.

Le reti da pesca recuperate dai sommozzatori volontari di Ghost Fishingcon la collaborazione dei Cousteau Divers saranno consegnate poi a un’azienda trentina, la Aquafil SpA per la rigenerazione del nylon usato da Carvico per la concfezione di tessuti che vari brand poi utilizzano per la confezione di nuovi costumi da bagno. Un tessuto che, grazie al trattamento dell’azienda bergamasca, diventa riciclabile infinite volte. Carvico Spa è attiva dal 1962 ed attualmente è guidata da una donna: Laura Colnaghi Calissoni, presidente dal 2005 a seguito della tragica scomparsa del marito Giuseppe Colnaghi. Qualche dato macroeconomico: i dipendenti sono 320 di cui 120 donne e il fatturato del 2017 ha toccato i 113 milioni di euro.

Oil prices to peak in mid-2019: BofAML – Brent crude oil prices are expected to trend gradually higher, hitting an average of $80 per barrel (/bbl) by mid-2019 before gradually trending lower to an average of $71/bbl by end-2019 – Crude Oil prices peak 2019 BofAML

Oil prices to peak in mid-2019: BofAML

DUBAI

Crude Oil prices peak 2019 BofAML Brent crude oil prices are expected to trend gradually higher, hitting an average of $80 per barrel (/bbl) by mid-2019 before gradually trending lower to an average of $71/bbl by end-2019, said Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BofAML) in a new report.

This amounts to approximately a $20 appreciation in crude oil from the end of last year to the peak in the outlook, added BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research report “Liquid Insight”.

However, a sustained oil price shock where crude oil prices remain at peak would be significant.

“Our model simulations indicate a permanent oil price shock to $80/bbl would shave roughly 0.2ppt to growth over the next eight quarters while a sustained shock to $100/bbl would cut roughly 0.5ppt. Also note the economic literature finds that large movements in oil prices could have negative nonlinear effects on growth as consumers may be slow to adjust to higher energy prices,” the report said.

“However, given we are only forecasting a gradual rise in prices over the outlook, we do not expect a material slowdown in growth and maintain our current growth forecasts.”

The report said that the new outlook for oil prices will temporarily lift headline inflation, but have little to no effect on core inflation, which is expected to hit 1.9 per cent year-on-year (YoY) and 2.1 per cent YoY this year and next, respectively.

“Another reason we do not expect the rise in oil prices to materially impact our outlook is that the importance of oil shocks has diminished over time,” the report said.

“In the past, changes in oil prices were a major source of economic fluctuation. For example, oil price shocks of the 1970s led to bouts of stagflation (i.e., low growth, high unemployment, and high inflation). However, since the late 1990s, growth and inflation have remained relatively stable in the face of major oil shocks. We see several factors for this phenomenon.”

First, we now consume less energy goods than in the past. Consumption of gasoline, fuel oil and other energy goods as a share of total consumption has fallen from around 8 per cent before the 1970s to around 2.5 per cent today, limiting the effect of oil shocks. Second, the US produces more oil domestically, reducing our reliance on foreign production.

Production of crude petroleum and natural gas extraction has been surging since the mid-2000s. Therefore, a rise in oil prices today redirects more income between domestic consumers and producers rather than it did previously, cushioning some of the negative impact of an oil shock. Third, monetary policy credibility has improved over time.

Heightened risk

Higher oil prices are a key risk to the growth outlook, but at this stage, we maintain our view that growth will remain on target to hit 2.9 per cent this year and 2.4 per cent next year. Only a sustained pickup in oil prices is likely to weigh on the economy, which appears unlikely given our current forecast for oil prices.

Moreover, the likelihood that an oil shock will lead to recession appears low. Fiscal stimulus from tax cuts and the budget deal should buffer against any downturn. Moreover, structural changes to the economy should limit the impact. On inflation, the pass-through of oil shocks to core inflation appears fairly limited while headline inflation is likely to respond quickly. All this suggests the Fed should remain comfortable in its gradual hiking cycle and keep it on track to raise rates two more times this year.- TradeArabia News Service

Latin America economic Mexico HOUSTON (ICIS)–Here are the economic news stories on the Latin America region for the week ended 18 May:

Brazil’s March producer price index rose by 1.05% month on month, putting the 12-month total at 6.23%, the Brazilian state statistical agency (IBGE) said on 26 April. Chemical products registered as one of the industrial sectors that showed the most uptick month on month rising by 2.86%. In the chemicals tier, polypropylene (PP) and herbicides both influenced the higher pricing in the sector in March, IBGE said.

Brazil’s trade deficit in chemical products in the first quarter reached $5.6bn, up by 12.5% compared with the same period in 2017 as rising prices offset lower import volumes, trade group Abiquim said on 24 April.

Mexico’s central bank maintained its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 7.5% on 17 May amid uncertainty stemming from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Mexican peso. The bank said the current rate should help inflation fall back to its 3% target and that it was closely following potential inflation pressures from a weaker peso.

The peso has tumbled close to 5% this month to its weakest in more than a year, largely because of a stronger dollar. The central bank said “domestic factors” also weakened the currency. Mexican policymakers said the peso could be further hurt by uncertainty about Mexico’s presidential election on 1 July, as well the renegotiation of NAFTA.

Mexico’s producer price index (PPI) declined by 0.04% in April month on month, the state statistical agency INEGI said on 9 May. For the year it rose by 4.00%.  The figures exclude petroleum. By sector, producer prices for chemicals dropped by 1.20% month on month but were up by 5.33% for the year. Plastic and rubber products were down by 0.12% month on month but were up by 3.96% for the year. Petroleum products were up by 0.83% month on month and up for the year at 14.37%, INEGI said.

Mexico’s industrial production in March was steady year on year and also stable from the previous month, the state statistical agency (INEGI) said on 11 May.

Statistical agency (INEGI) expects the Mexico’s economy grew by 1.1% in the first quarter from the fourth, it said on 30 April. Year on year, GDP likely grew by 2.4%.

Mexican vinyls producer Mexichem reported on 25 April a Q1 net income of $79m, up 52% from $52m from the same time last year because of higher sales. First-quarter sales were $1.76bn, up 27% from $1.39bn from the same time last year.

Sales rose because of fluorspar demand as well as better prices for Mexichem’s fluorine-based products and for its PVC.

Press Release

LONDON — Petainer, the global lead in one-way kegs, is partnering with BLUE PET in Brazil to start manufacturing petainerKeg – its global family of keg products which are increasingly being used by breweries for draught beer.

BLUE PET, which specialises in producing bulk volume PET containers such as 5 USG refillable bulk water packaging, will begin manufacturing at its new plant in Tijucas, Santa Catarina, in the South of Brazil in early June 2018.  The blow moulding plant will serve the domestic market as well becoming the manufacturing hub for the South American region serving emerging markets in Argentina, Uruguay and others.

Local manufacturing means that supply chain costs will be reduced, making it even more cost-effective to use petainerKeg compared to other forms of packaging.  The kegs will be sold through Petainer’s strategic distribution partners KHS Brazil, N/Pack and potentially others in the near future.

BLUE PET will manufacture the core petainerKeg range, including the newly launched Hybrid keg. One-way kegs are proving popular in the region because they are used only once and are fully recyclable, cutting out costly, complex return logistics and washing processes.  In addition to significant cost of ownership and sustainability benefits, they provide enhanced product protection, making sure that the beer is as good as the day it was brewed for over nine months.

“I am delighted to announce our partnership with BLUE PET,” said Ricardo Leonel Vieira, Brazil Country Manager, Petainer. “Bringing manufacturing to Brazil demonstrates Petainer’s commitment to the domestic market and the wider region and reflects the growing demand for one-way PET kegs.”

We have partnered with Petainer because we recognise the growth opportunities for its products,” said Luis Matias, BLUE PET Managing Director. “One-way kegs provide a much more cost-effective alternative to steel kegs without any compromise on product quality and protection.”

Dry fermentation for organic residues – Through the use of nature’s cycle principle, the Pöttinger Fermenter combines biogas recovery and composting in a single solution that addresses both ecological and economic criteria – Dry fermentation organic residues

Dry fermentation for organic residues

Through the use of nature’s cycle principle, the Pöttinger Fermenter combines biogas recovery and composting in a single solution that addresses both ecological and economic criteria.
Dry fermentation organic residues

Inspired entirely by nature, the Pöttinger Fermenter is optimised for the recycling of organic residues. Unlike simple disposal and burning, the material cycle closes both in terms of economics and ecology when a Pöttinger Fermenter is used. The intelligent combination of biogas generation and composting therefore not only adds up in financial terms, but it also saves the atmosphere around 267 kg of CO2 per tonne of bio-waste.

The Pöttinger Fermenter is a flexibly scalable system comprising a container box with integrated control unit and at least 3 and up to a maximum of 15 further container boxes for residue conversion. Its capacity is 58 m³ in each case. Thanks to its modular structure, the system can be adapted to individual requirements with annual capacities of 1,000 to 5,000 t. The containers are not concreted and are therefore also not tied to one location. A reduction in the output required is therefore just as quick to implement as an increase. The self-contained system inside the Fermenter boxes also means a significant reduction in odour emissions with sensitive input materials, such as leftover food, out-of-date produce and sewage sludge.

The recycling of organic residues in the containers is based on the process of dry fermentation. In a three-stage process, CO2-neutral methane is produced which can be converted into green power and heat, purified into bio-gas with the quality of natural gas or can be used to power bio-LNG vehicles. Following this three-week fermentation cycle, the former waste can be easily turned into compost and therefore used as a high-quality humus fertiliser.

The investment costs for the infrastructure required and operation of the system are manageable. Existing technology such as wheel loaders or compost turners can be used. Additional equipment, such as stirrers or pumps, however, are not required. The starter material does not need to be pre-treated and requires no further intensive input during its time in the Fermenter.

Perfect for a locally autonomous recycling economy, the Pöttinger Fermenter is especially suitable for use in agriculture, the food industry, local waste management or as an addition to existing composting facilities.

In local authority use, for example, the energy obtained from only around 1,000 tons of bio-residues can be used to provide around 40 households with electricity and heat.
