-Iran discovers new oil field with 50 billion barrels of crude

Iran’s president has described a massive find in the oil-rich Khuzestan province. But sanctions against Iranian oil could make it difficult for the oil to find its way to international markets.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday said a new oil field was discovered in the Khuzestan province.Petrochemical PET Bottles PEF

He said the new field has more than 50 billion barrels of crude oil, which would boost the country’s proven reserves by a third.

“I am telling the White House that in the days when you sanctioned the sale of Iranian oil, the country’s workers and engineers were able to discover 53 billion barrels of oil,” Rouhani said. “This is a small gift by the government to the people of Iran.”

-Oil market to be oversupplied in next 4 yrs

MORE bad news is emerging for the oil organization, as more oil has been pouring from different unconventional sources far away from the troubled waters.

This time it is not the USA shale oil but oil from Brazil, Canada, Guyana and Norway. All the four countries are expected to bring more than five million barrels of oil in the next four years.Petrochemical PET Bottles PEF

OPEC will end up losing its global share of 35 million barrels to less than 29 million barrels or may be less. This is after the absence of Iran and Venezuela, which have been forced to cut down their production. Iraq at the same time has been pushing for 4.9 million barrels, and is currently close to 4.7 million barrels per day.

-Starlinger “circular packaging” at K 2019: a closed loop for big bags made from polypropylene fabric

At K 2019, Starlinger presents a closed loop system for big bags made from woven polypropylene. The sustainable concept “circular packaging” will be Starlinger’s main theme at the K show 2019 as well as at the Starlinger Open House in Weissenbach/Austria.Petrochemical PET Bottles PEF

Worldwide, more than 380 million 4-loop big bags (called FIBCs in specialist vocabulary – Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers) are sold every year; this equals an annual recycling potential of approx. 800,000 tons of material. To turn big bags into big bags once more, the Austrian Starlinger & Co. GmbH has now developed the concept “circular packaging” for big bags made from polypropylene fabric; the well-known FIBC expert Dr. Amir Samadijavan acted as consultant for this project.

-Europe PE spot prices down as US traders step in with lower numbers

-Europe polyethylene (PE) spot prices are under downward pressure again, and new competition from US traders is exacerbating the situation, according to local sellers.

Three new US-based traders are said to be offering large volumes of low-priced product to many players across Europe.

“It looks like they’ve bought a directory and are approaching all the buyers,” said one source. Petrochemical PET Bottles PEF

It is this scattershot approach that is sending shock-waves through the market, as it is very hard to define how much material is actually being offered.

-Enzymes to reduce emissions from the textile industry

The dyeing of textiles has a major negative impact on the environment. Now, a new method for degrading the dyes and purifying the waste water has been developed at the University of Borås, Borås/Sweden.

In the dyeing process, the excess dyes and chemicals are flushed out with the waste water. In her research project, doctoral student Petrochemical PET Bottles PEF

May Kahoush has investigated 3 different methods, all of which facilitate a solution that benefits both the environment and the textile industry by reducing the consumption of water and energy, as well as the emission of hazardous chemicals. In an attempt to solve this problem, enzymes are used to initiate a degradation process of dyes and other chemicals.
