Chinese titanium dioxide manufacturers

MOSCOW – Chinese manufacturers of titanium dioxide (TiO2) have announced price increases for both domestic and export markets, which will be produced in August, ICIS reports citing market sources.

Due to the upward sentiment in the international market, the difference between export prices from China and the contract prices of other international manufacturers has become more noticeable.

In addition, there is cautious optimism that domestic demand in China may increase in the third quarter.

Chinese manufacturers announced an increase in export prices of USD50 per tonne, FOB China and an increase in domestic prices by CNY500 per tonne.

These price increases are expected to take effect by August 15th.

Titanium dioxide is used in the manufacture of paints and varnishes (59%), plastics, rubber products, paper, chemical fibers, etc.

-Europe nylon 6,6 July contracts fall on low automotive sector demand for third consecutive month

European nylon 6,6 contract prices for July have settled at decreases of €0.05/kg on the back of persistent low demand in the downstream automotive sector.

Contract prices have fallen for the third consecutive month.

Summer market activity remains quiet and some buyers skipped negotiations for July volumes due to high stock levels.

The price range for nylon 6,6 virgin polymer stands at €4.13-4.27/kg FD (free delivered) NWE (northwest Europe) for July.

Supply is stable to ample, depending on the player, but concerns remain for the fourth quarter due to the Butachimie planned turnaround for key nylon 6,6 feedstock adiponitrile (ADN) in Chalampe, France. Petrochemicals Biodegradable Crude Oil

They have also found a ready audience. As awareness has spread of the devastating ecological impact of single-use plastics, environmentally conscious consumers and Blue Planet fans have increasingly turned to alternative materials such as aluminium, glass, and cartons when buying bottled water. But are alternative forms of packaging really any greener than the plastic bottles they aspire to replace?

-Russian textiles industry to receive growth boost

Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak is responsible for the development of technical textile sector in the Russian government.

The Russian technical textiles industry may receive an additional impetus for growth this year, thanks to the recently announced government plans to ease the existing restrictions on global producers taking part in public tenders for the purchase of innovative textile products for state needs.

These plans have been recently confirmed by Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, responsible for the development of the technical textiles sector.

According to Mr Kozak, he has already instructed the national government to create conditions for the better access of foreign producers of innovative textile products on public procurements in Russia. Petrochemicals Biodegradable Crude Oil

-Eastman advances two chemical recycling options

Going circular seems to be all the rage, and that is certainly a good thing for both mankind’s and the planet’s future. But for a manufacturer, making the shift to circular processes or materials is not without its risks.

Perhaps few companies know that better than Eastman, the specialty chemical company, ranked No. 32 globally for sales in that sector. Back in the 1990s, Eastman made a major investment to develop a commercial line of PET materials that used 50 percent chemically recycled content. That effort was ahead of its time, and the line was discontinued because the demand never materialized.

Now, sensing the shifting winds, Eastman is back with not one, but two new circular production processes.

-Discarded fishing nets recycled for eco surfboards

When the sun rises over the horizon in the southern Indian village of Kuthenkuly, Jesuraja and his fellow fishermen prepare to set off for a new day at sea.

But they are not looking for fish – they are searching for abandoned fishing nets floating in the Indian Ocean.

Also known as “ghost nets”, this often nylon plastic netting has caused serious environmental damage. It entangles marine life and degrades into microplastics that are eaten by fish, entering the food chain. It also snags boat propellers and damages engines.

-Lenzing continues positive business development

The Lenzing Group continued its solid business development in the first half of 2019. Despite a significantly more challenging market environment with historically low prices for standard viscose, Lenzing recorded a slight increase in revenue.

It increased by 1.2% in the first half of 2019 and amounted to EUR 1.09 billion. The share of specialty fibres in revenue, at 48.4%, significantly exceeded the prior-year value of 44.1%. EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) dropped by 7% to EUR 181.2 million. This decline primarily resulted from higher production volumes and currency effects, which led to an increase in pulp costs, from an increase in personnel expenses and the market environment for standard viscose.

-Softer-than-cotton antibacterial shirt is made out of milk

Every day, dairies dispose of milk that for one reason or another is deemed unfit for human consumption. A Los Angeles-based startup by the name of Mi Terro is taking some of that milk and using it to create T-shirts, that reportedly have some big advantages over regular cotton Tees.

The process starts by obtaining waste milk that gets fermented and then skimmed, removing its fat content. It is subsequently dewatered, resulting in a powdered milk that gets purified to remove all substances other than a naturally-occurring protein known as casein.Petrochemicals Biodegradable Crude Oil
