The next time you smile as you grab your favorite drink, the vending machine might just respond in kind – especially if you recycle the package after.

Using cutting-edge facial recognition technologies and a voice interactive system, the VenCycling machine makes purchasing and recycling a variety of Coca-Cola beverages more efficient and intelligent. Sporting emotive AI LEDs and two “eyes” – one that dispenses beverages and another that collects used packaging – the machine offers a smart incentive for consumers to recycle. In exchange for returning used cans or plastic bottles into the machine, consumers receive credits, primarily via mobile devices, for beverages or products made from recycled plastics.CocaCola Machine China Drinks Recycling

“We envision a system that allows vending machines to also collect used packaging,” explains Dr. Shell Huang, vice president, R&D, Coca-Cola Asia Pacific, which unveiled the innovation at Summer Davos in Tianjin, China. “It will help enhance recycling awareness among consumers and nurture recycling habits.”CocaCola Machine China Drinks Recycling

Innovations like the VenCycling machine support The Coca-Cola Company’s “World Without Waste” vision to help collect and recycle the equivalent of 100 percent of its packaging by 2030.

More than 200 Global Shapers from all over the world discussed “Shaping a World Without Waste through Innovation” at the Global Shapers Event during Summer Davos.

“VenCycling is an innovation for the company to achieve our global vision for sustainable packaging,” said Jiantao Zhang vice president, Coca-Cola Greater China and Korea. “We will use our business efficiency to contribute to sustainable development in China.”

Dr. Peiyuan Guo, co-founder and general manager of SynTao – a consultancy group specializing in green finance – says one way to encourage sustainable development is to reframe plastics as a manufacturing resource with a life, post-bottle, as recycled plastics can transform into other consumer goods.CocaCola Machine China Drinks Recycling

“With VenCycling,” he concludes, “Coca-Cola China has taken a great step by introducing packaging into the value chain of circular economy.”CocaCola Machine China Drinks Recycling

According to Piotr Rudnik, it will be the first stage in implementing a major investment project to build a facility to make polyester products. Mogilevkhimvolokno polyester fiber December

The new equipment with the output capacity of 50,000 tonnes per annum will allow making new varieties of synthetic yarn, which sell well in CIS and non-CIS states.

The Russian Federation remains the main strategic partner for Mogilevkhimvolokno, with the company selling about half of its output to Russia. Among other things the new facility will allow increasing the output and export to Russia.

Piotr Rudnik said: “We are discussing the implementation of the second stage of the investment project to develop the enterprise. Mogilevkhimvolokno polyester fiber December

The stage provides for building a continuous PET polycondensation plant connected to polyester fiber manufacturing lines, a plant for solid state polycondensation and technical yarn production. Mogilevkhimvolokno polyester fiber December

The project is estimated to cost roughly €120 million. The facilities are supposed to be commissioned in 2023-2024.

Raising Russian investments is one of the options we are considering.”

The future of Porto Marghera. Versalis acquires the M & G patents for biofuels  Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi

Press review Veneto

Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi

The Eni company wins the auction with an offer of 80 million that could bring the “green chemistry” to the Petrochemicals Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi
MARGHERA – Now we are more likely to be able to transform the dream of reconverting what remains of the Porto Marghera Petrochemical, and in particular the old ethylene cracking plant of Versalis spa, of the Eni group, into an advanced and innovative green chemistry and biofuels “. Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi

Last Tuesday, at the auction launched by the Turin bankruptcy court, Versalis spa offered € 80 million to acquire the so-called “bio perimeter”, composed of the four companies Biochemtex, Beta Renewable, Ibp and Ibp Energia of the Mossi & Ghisolfi group (M & G ), the most important in a preventive arrangement.
After the opening of the envelope with the only offer, namely that of Versalis-Eni, received at the auction in Turin, must now be completed with the deed of the deed before a notary and with the negotiations with the unions of the chemists both on the future of the 200 employees of the four companies of the M & G group, based in Crescentino in the province of Vercelli, that the effects of this acquisition within the existing Versalis plants in Italy, starting from that of Porto Marghera, also nominated by the current number 1 by Eni, Claudio Descalzi, to become the headquarters of Eni’s nascent “green and organic chemistry” industry.Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi
The unions of the Venetian chemists are already ready to ask the top management of Versalis the use of patents, unique in the world, of the M & G group concerning the innovative “first generation biofuels”.
The ethylene cracking plant of Porto Marghera (which employs about 400 direct employees), in fact, had already been programmed for final closure (by 2021), but the fall in oil and its derivatives prices led Versalis to keep it active for a few years, on behalf of big companies like Esso.Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi
The fact is that the old cracking of Versalis is, however, intended for closure, as long as you do not think and realize a different use of the plants and the area they occupy within the Petrochemical of Porto Marghera.Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi
And it is precisely the “bio” patents of M & G, as the unions of the Venetian chemists of Cgil, Cisl, Uil, wish to find in Porto Marghera their industrial development.
In particular, Versalis could involve the “Proesa®” technology for the conversion of biomass into sugars, the Biochemtex of the M & G Group, which owns the so-called “Moghi” technology which allows the valorisation of lignin-based biomass for the production of chemical products. high added value.Porto Marghera Versalis Mossi Ghisolfi
Lignin is obtained as a by-product of bioethanol production and can be transformed, through this process, into a fundamental molecule for the production of chemical products.

Oil prices have been quietly rising for the last six weeks.

The Brent crude benchmark has now breached the U.S. $80/barrel level to $81.20 this week, a level not seen since late 2014, the Financial Times reports.

In the U.S., ample shale oil supply and constrained infrastructure remains a drag on the West Texas Intermediate price, the U.S. marker, but it still increased $1.30 a barrel in New York to close at $72.08 this week — its highest level since July, according to the Financial Times.

-The quest for the most sustainable beverage packaging

Drinks should only be put on the market in the most sustainable option available – packaging that can be recycled and reused, but also has the lowest environmental impact overall, according to a vision set out by a University of Cambridge report. But what ideas could we see emerge as the optimum choice?

The report, published by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), and created on behalf of a group of bottled water brands including Danone, Nestle and Suntory, sets out a vision where all bottled water and soft drink packaging is made from 100% recyclable or reusable material; resulting in non-recyclable and hard-to-recycle plastics being phased out
