Aquafil, a leading Italy-based specialist in the production of Polyamide 6 (nylon 6), has released its latest Sustainability Report. For over a decade, Aquafil has used the Sustainability Report to showcase the company’s commitment to doing business responsibly. The report discloses the Group’s commitment to sustainability and the results that Aquafil has achieved in helping to support and protect employees, local communities, and the environment. Aquafil Environment Sustainability Report

According to Aquafil’s 2018 Sustainability Report, greenhouse gas emissions were reduced by 30% since 2016, and operations run on 100% renewable energy.

Rethinking products

For more than 30 years Aquafil has placed the circular economy as a core value of the company’s business strategy. To save resources, give new life to otherwise lost materials, increase efficiency along the value chain. Through its goals, step by step the company is positioning the Group as a leader, both nationally and internationally.

Last year saw a start of the European project Effective, aimed at the development of nylon and other textile fibre from biomaterials. The company opened the US Aquafil Carpet Recycling plant, aimed at the recycling of old carpets. The recovered materials find different uses: the nylon fraction is regenerated in the Econyl process, while the others are used in other industrial sectors. Aquafil Environment Sustainability Report

Thanks to the Econyl Regeneration System it is possible to obtain new nylon yarn from discarded resources, such as end of life fishnets and other waste materials that would otherwise go to landfill. “Our system also allows us to reduce GHG emissions from the caprolactam, the raw material used to produce nylon yarn.”

Protecting environment

Aquafil is committed to protecting the environment throughout the entire supply chain. “We have specific initiatives in place designed to reduce the environmental impacts of our processes, through energy recovery,” the company continues. “For example, AquafilSLO transfers our excess thermal energy to Atlantis water park, where it is used to heat their water, thus minimising energy wastage for both companies.”

The company also endorses the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and uses them as a guide to determine our sustainability goals and objectives. “This provides us with a framework to measure and track our progress, and globally communicate about a model for sustainable development,” the manufacturer says. In 2018, Aquafil contributed to the achievement of eight SDGs through its sustainability improvements.

Aquafil and sustainability

“Aquafil and Sustainability is the story of what we do every day to contribute to sustainable development. We have chosen to report here only the most relevant information: the pillars on which we base our sustainability path, which we called Eco Pledge, and some of the main results achieved in 2018. At the end of each paragraph you will find the link to the more detailed information in the non-financial disclosure,” said Giulio Bonazzi, President of Aquafil. Aquafil Environment Sustainability Report

From this year on, the sustainability report forms an integral part of the non-financial disclosure included in the annual consolidated financial statements as established by the Italian Legislative Decree n. 254/2016, and summarises all the commitments Aquafil has made to support and safeguard its employees, local communities, the environment in which it operates and the planet as a whole.

-Pressure mounting on China’s PE market as supply expands

China’s polyethylene (PE) market will continue to face pressure from incremental supply in the second half of 2019, amid overseas capacity additions as well as fewer domestic plant turnarounds.

The total domestic supply in the first half of 2019 increased by around 14% year on year, with domestic output up by 12% and imports up by 17%, ICIS data showed.

The increase in domestic output in the first half of 2019 was mainly attributed to fewer plant turnarounds compared with the year before.

Only Jiutai Energy started up its 250,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE)/liner low density polyethylene (LLDPE) plant in May throughout the first six months. Petrochemicals Biodegradable smart plastic

-Refuse to Resource: Suntory’s Bottle-to-Bottle Initiative to Reshape Plastic Recycling

Only 10% of Japan’s plastic drink bottles are recycled into new containers for products in the same industry. With more countries refusing to accept plastic waste, Japanese authorities and businesses are rethinking how to handle the growing mountains of trash.

Nowhere to Send Plastic Trash

Japan, like many industrialized nations, faces a garbage crisis. For years it shipped countless used plastic to China, the main global destination for recyclable materials. However, these exports included a substantial quantity of plastic contaminated by food and other waste that heavily impacted the local environment and health of workers charged with sorting the trash.

-US recession fears drag chem stocks, threaten ’20 profit estimates

Fears of an upcoming recession are weighing heavily on chemical stock prices, sending price/earnings (P/E) ratios for commodity names down to single digits based on Wall Street’s estimated 2020 earnings.

The escalation of the US-China trade war, with the US ready to slap on a new round of tariffs on Chinese imports starting on 1 September, have sent US bond yields sharply lower.

The brief inversion of 10-year and 2-year US Treasury yields on 13 August , where the yield on the longer dated government debt dipped lower than the short-term yield – a historical harbinger of recessions – stoked fear and triggered a rout in global equity markets.

-Plastics maker Indorama commits $1.5 billion to recycling

Thai chemicals company Indorama Ventures has committed $1.5 billion of investment in recycling as consumers become more aware of the environmental impact of single-use plastic and regulators push for more recycling, it said on Wednesday.

Indorama’s main business is the production of PET resin, a polymer used to make plastic bottles and fibers used in products such as seat belts and tyres.

In the 12 months to June 30 the company produced nearly 5,000 kilotons of PET.

“We are investing $1 billion in recycling over the next five years,” Chief Executive Aloke Lohia told Reuters on Wednesday, adding that investment would include greenfield and brownfield mergers and acquisitions focusing on bottle-to-bottle recycling.

-Thailand optimistic in becoming a bioplastics base

Thailand has been seen as a potential partner in transforming the production base for bioplastics and other converted products.

Based on a report produced by Plastics Institute of Thailand, its Executive Director Dr. Kriengsak Wongpromrat, recorded in a statement that Thailand produced around 17 million tonnes of sugar in 2018 and exported around 11 million tonnes.

“Taking 100,000 tonnes for the production of polylactic acid (PLA) biopolymer is not going to affect the supply of sugar for food applications, especially since consumption of sugar may be adversely affected by a ‘sweet tax’ that Thailand plans to introduce,” Wongpromrat commented.
