Through establishing parallels between the locally sourced, slow-food movement and the slowing down of apparel production from fast fashion, DuPont Sorona hosted an event on Sept. 11 to promote more-responsible approaches to fashion.Petrochemicals Automotive PA66 Compounds
Bringing together professionals from the apparel business, garment-industry watchdogs and environmental-conservation organizations, Sorona illustrated how principles from farm-to-table food sourcing could be applied to fashion manufacturing.
Saudi Arabia is not pressing for war, but its options to avoid one are narrowing. And that suits its nemesis Iran just fine. Petrochemicals Automotive PA66 Compounds
Nowhere is the squeeze on Saudi’s prospects more obvious than beneath the burnt-out pipes and towers of the Khurais oil plant. Petrochemicals Automotive PA66 Compounds
Shrapnel and flaming oil spewed from its petroleum towers as four cruise missiles slammed in to them early Saturday. Quarter-inch-thick steel piping 100 meters from the impact punctured fist-size holes along its now-bent and battered body.
The Sept. 14 attacks on the Abqaiq and Khurais plants, some of the kingdom’s biggest, caused raging fires and significant damage that halved the crude output of the world’s top oil exporter, by shutting down 5.7 million barrels per day of production.
“The fires that were intended to destroy Saudi Aramco had an unintended consequence: they galvanized 70,000 of us around a mission to rebound quickly and confidently, and Saudi Aramco has come out of this incident stronger than ever,” Nasser said in the internal message, on the occasion of the Saudi national day, to be celebrated on Sept. 23.
Polyethylene terephthalate, abbreviated as PET is a very common material available on earth. Polyethylene terephthalate is one of the majorly used materials for packaging of several products. Petrochemicals Automotive PA66 Compounds
However, polyethylene terephthalate is used in different applications, but polyethylene terephthalate is a harmful material for the environment and to overcome this the alternative, bio-based polyethylene terephthalate is currently used.
The bio-based polyethylene terephthalate is made from the organic raw materials which reduce the emission of the greenhouse gases on disposal.
Baystreet.ca) Flooding from a tropical storm hit the Houston area on Thursday, with some calling the situation worse than Hurricane Harvey.
Heavy rainfall inundated the Texas coast, flooding Houston and Beaumont, home to massive oil refining, petrochemical and export facilities.
The storm was downgraded to just a tropical depression, but those classifications only measure wind speed. The real threat from Imelda was ‘major, catastrophic flooding,’ according to the National Weather Service.Petrochemicals Automotive PA66 Compounds
‘Extremely persistent thunderstorms’ created the potential for 6 to 12 inches of rain, with higher levels in certain areas. ‘Storm total rainfall could be in excess of two feet for some areas before the weather finally begins to improve!’ the NWS said in a notice.
Connects plastics sector entrepreneurs with technology experts on creating smart factories
Innovation-based, high-value model needed to capture long-term competitiveness globally
In an effort to foster an advanced and innovative industry that embraces Industry 4.0 the Malaysian Plastics Manufacturers Association (MPMA) organized its first Connect @ i4.0 Plastics Industry Conference 2019 in Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur on Sept 19.
Marina Tex- A biodegradable bioplastic has won the UK section of James Dyson Award 2019. The bioplastic is made from red algae and other waste products from the fishing industry. Created by Lucy Hughes, Marina Tex is an alternative for single-use plastics, for instance those used for sandwich packets. Petrochemicals Automotive PA66 Compounds
“Unlike some other bioplastics which needs special infrastructure and higher temperatures, this material will biodegrade in kind of lower temperatures, which can be achieved in, kind of, home compost bins,” explained Lucy Hughes, a design graduate of the University of Sussex
A demonstration line for viewing direct rPET to sheet has been arranged in the large R&D area of the Kuhne Group in nearby St. Augustin during K 2019.
Next Generation Recycling Machines (NGR) and Kuhne Group will jointly demonstrate line direct rPET to sheet in the large R&D area of the Kuhne Group in nearby St. Augustin during K 2019. The cooperation between the recycling machine specialist and the extrusion provider is entering its next phase. Petrochemicals Automotive PA66 Compounds
Since first revealed at K 2016, several joint projects have been implemented, and interest in the combination of recycling and direct sheet production has intensified since then, the companies stated.
Carbios, a company pioneering new, bio-industrial solutions to reinvent the lifecycle of plastic and textile polymers, has developed an innovative enzymatic process for recycling PET plastic such as bottles, packaging and textiles. Carbios has brought a game changing answer to the global plastic pollution crisis by creating a genuine circular economy. The process was discussed at the XXV Enzyme Engineering Conference in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Carbios chief scientific officer, Prof Alain Marty, said that the company has developed novel enzymes allowing PET plastics such as bottles, packaging and textiles to be recycled in an eco-responsible way.
