Oil prices rose on Tuesday but eased off a four-year high after U.S. President Donald Trump called on OPEC to increase crude output, even he as called for heavier sanctions on major oil producer Iran.

Trump reiterated calls on the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to pump more oil and stop raising prices in a speech before the United Nations.

The so-called “OPEC+” group, which includes the likes of Russia, Oman and Kazakhstan, had met at the weekend to discuss a possible increase in crude output, but the upshot of the gathering was that the group was in no rush to do so.

-Sumitomo Chemical PES Additive Boosts Toughness of Epoxy Composites

Sumitomo Chemical reports that its polyethersulfone (PES) micro-powder additive SumikaExcel 5003P boosts fracture toughness and resistance to micro-cracking for fibre reinforced epoxy composites over a broad temperature range without negatively impacting dimensional stability, flame/smoke/toxicity (FST), creep resistance, modulus, impact, or yield strength.

The company says that functional additive is widely used by the aerospace industry for prepreg and resin transfer moulded carbon fibre reinforced epoxy, is gaining ground in automotive, and could also be used for high-performance sporting goods. The material is produced by Sumitomo Chemical, Tokyo, Japan, and sold in North America by Sumitomo Chemical Advanced Technologies, Phoenix, Arizona, US, which will exhibit for the first time at CAMX 2018, 16-18 October in Dallas.

– Novozymes Joins International Phytobiomes Alliance

The International Alliance for Phytobiomes Research is pleased to announce that Novozymes has joined the organization as a sponsoring partner.

Launched in 2016, the Phytobiomes Alliance is an international, nonprofit consortium of academic institutions, private companies, and government agencies. The Alliance facilitates and coordinates international efforts toward expanding phytobiomes research in order to accelerate the sustainable production of food, feed, and fiber for food security.

The term “Phytobiome” refers to a plant growing within a specific environment, or biome; it includes the plant itself, all micro- and macro-organisms living in, on, or around the plant—such as microbes, animals, insects, and other plants—as well as the environment, which includes soil, air, water, weather, and climate.

-Bioplastics sourced from wood

The shift from fossil-based industries to a bioeconomy is creating a growing demand for biobased chemicals, materials and fuels as sustainable and renewable alternatives. One possible source is fructose from wood for use in the production of bioplastics.

Lignocellulosic biomass is typically nonedible plant material, including dedicated crops of wood and grass, as well as waste material from agroforestry. It is also the single most abundant renewable resource on earth and available all year round. Furthermore, lignocellulosic biomass does not need valuable space in fields as it has no agricultural or nutritional use. It’s noteworthy, that wood can be harvested sustainably from certified forests. In the Nordic countries, more forest is grown than gets harvested each year.

Mitsui Plant Glass Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene

Long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene (LGFPP)

Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (MCI; Tokyo; www.mitsuichem.com) has decided to set up a new production facility for long glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene (LGFPP) at the Ohio plant of its U.S. subsidiary Advanced Composites, Inc. (President: Keiji Shite).

The new plant is expected to have a capacity of 3,500 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of LGFPP. Completion of the new site is slated for September 2019, with commercial operations commencing in October 2019. Mitsui Plant Glass Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene

LGFPP is a composite material made by melting and mixing polypropylene (PP) resin with long glass fibers. The lightweight material offers an attractive appearance, with long glass fibers providing a good balance between hardness and impact resistance. The material is already being adopted in areas such as the unpainted insides of rear car doors.
