THE TECHNOLOGY – EVOLUTION
It is observed that world over there were certain process methodology /inventions /claims about the availability of starch/cellulose/lactic acid based compositions with polyethylene to make a degradable plastic. We found to our dismay that ‘Neither’ all of them or ‘None’ of them could effectively break down the polymer matrix and make the polyethylene completely biodegrade in the soil environment. Having decided to adopt a different road map to achieve a possible complete biodegradation of plastic film, we explored the possibility and process ability of enzyme and bacteria based substrate to effectively penetrate in to the polyethylene chain structure.
The Trump Administration is set to announce later on Friday a plan to boost ethanol and biodiesel demand and placate the farming lobby angered by the Administration’s waivers for dozens of oil refineries exempted from blending corn-based ethanol in fuels, Reuters reports, quoting four sources with knowledge of the matter.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
Under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), oil refiners are required to blend growing amounts of renewable fuels into gasoline and diesel. The Midwest farm belt benefits from the policy, but the oil refiners do not—they lose petroleum-based market share of fuels and meeting the blending requirements costs them hundreds of millions of dollars.
Plastic waste is becoming a more pressing concern for today’s consumers than it has ever been in the past. Research tells us that an average of eight million metric tons of plastic waste enters the ocean each year and that this plastic waste can impact the health of the oceans, marine life and maybe even human health.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
The growing body of research on marine plastic pollution, along with news about upheaval in recycling export markets, has led to increased awareness among the public of the challenges at the end of life for plastics.
Royal DSM and other engineering resin makers will be at K 2019 with new high-performance materials.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
DSM — Hall 6, Booth B11 based in Geleen, Netherlands — will show how it’s developing innovations to address the needs of its customers and tackle the world’s major challenges, officials said in a news release. In metal replacement, DSM’s portfolio of conductive plastics enables the replacement of full-metal enclosures, which officials said can lead to weight reductions of up to 50 percent.

Purified PP: PureCycle Technologies, a company that licenses a PP recycling and purification technology from Procter & Gamble, has signed a deal with packaging manufacturer AptarGroup. PureCycle’s technology removes color, odor and other contaminants from recycled PP. Over the next three years, Aptar, which makes packaging and dispensing caps and lids for packages, will provide detailed feedback on the processing of the recycled PP into its products, according to a press release. The company will also help PureCycle’s plastic meet European food-contact requirements. Bloomberg recently published photos showing parts of PureCycle’s feedstock evaluation unit facility in Ohio.
As part of a joint effort with Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), Verdex Technologies has developed a technology that can take recycled PET carpet & bottles and turn them into an array of apparel and textile products for a variety of markets. The technology enables the apparel industry solve the ever-growing problem of landfilling carpet and ocean plastic.
Verdex’s patented spinning nozzle technology converts PCC material directly into nano/micro fibres which are blended with larger fibres to form products for the apparel and textile markets. Verdex technology is capable of spinning recycled cleaned PET carpet containing polypropylene and calcium carbonate components. This technology has massive potential in the performance apparel market due the nanofibres producing a much stronger Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR) compared to competing products on the market.

Gala facility for making underwater pelletizers and centrifugal dryers to be expanded by 20%. Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
Maag Group Americas is making a multi-million-dollar investment to significantly expand its manufacturing capabilities in Eagle Rock, Va. for the Gala product line.
Gala makes underwater pelletizers, centrigual dryers and other machines for the plastics and chemical industry in Eagle Rock, shipping them to customers around the world.
The 20,000 ft2 addition will house an optimized new assembly facility and allow larger systems, including high-capacity centrifugal dryers, to be assembled and tested on site. In addition, the additional space will allow Gala the opportunity to centralize and optimize laboratory operations, including customer or product trials, toll runs and product development.
European and Turkish entrepreneurs, international experts, designers & policy makers came together in Istanbul recently to discuss current and future scenarios in textile & clothing sector.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
From trade tensions to circular economy, collaboration between designers and manufacturers, it addressed topics crucial for EU and Turkish textile & clothing industries.
The discussion also focused on challenges of globalisation, environmental impact and digitalisation, and how such challenges can be turned into opportunities.
Manufacturer Pentagon Plastics Group, explains how plastics injection moulding and mould tool manufacture can provide solutions to many applications in the medical sector.
Each new product range brings its own challenges, and therefore it is crucial to have the right network of support in place from the outset.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
In order to achieve a successful manufacturing experience, it is necessary to have a product designer, material expert, mould tool manufacturer, plastic injection moulder, multiple medical engineers and marketing staff within each team.
It is also vital that areas of concern are addressed within the manufacturing process, and factors such as ease of use, comfort, flexibility, repeatability and the longevity of a product must be monitored.
Ingredients supplier Cargill has reduced the amount of plastic used in its vegetable oil bottles and containers by over 2.5 million pounds (680,000 kg) globally. Different strategies Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
have been used in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and South America – the four geographies in which Cargill’s edible oils are manufactured.
These include using new bottling technology and adding in recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic. The move comes as Cargill acknowledges that plastic packaging is a growing concern for many of its customers and consumers because of plastic waste pollution and the environmental impact of producing it.
Evonik has developed a new generation of polyimide fibres for the rising demands of the industry. Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
The new product, brand named P84 HT, is distinguished by improved mechanical stability and flexibility at continuously high operating temperatures, according to the manufacturer.
“The new polyimide fibre continues Evonik’s three decades of tradition of developing and producing high-performance polymer-based fibres for the hot gas filtration market at the Group’s Lenzing/Schörfling sites in Austria,” the company reports.
˜We have members working at Seal Sands who are wracked with worry about what the future holds”, says union
More than 220 jobs are under threat at an Ineos manufacturing plant as the chemicals giant consults on whether to close the site.
Ineos said not all jobs will be lost if it decides to close the Seal Sands Acrylonitrile plant in Teesside because of other activities at the site, which the company has owned for more than a decade. Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy
A statement said that despite investing more than £180 million to counter decades of “significant” underinvestment, the company believes nothing more can be done to ensure operations are safe and economically viable.
