-Chemical Recycling is Solution for Plastic Pollution

The world is drowning in plastic. About 60% of the more than 8,700 million metric tonnes of plastic ever made is no longer in use, instead sat mostly in landfill or released to the environment.

That equals over 400kg of plastic waste for every one of the 7.6 billion people on the planet.  Petrochemicals PET Packaging rPolyamide

One reason for this is that many plastics are not recyclable in our current system.

And even those that are recyclable still go to landfill eventually.

-Widespread Use of Bioplastics Held Back by Lagging Innovation, Claims Report

Innovation in polymers for a range of applications has never been a problem for the plastics industry. However, a new report from Clarivate Analytics, “From the Plastics Present to a Sustainable Future,” states that lack of innovation in the bioplastics arena is preventing the widespread use of biodegradable and compostable materials in packaging applications.  Petrochemicals PET Packaging rPolyamide

To prove that point, Clarivate and its partners studied the number of patents filed for bioplastic materials and who filed them. Clarivate concluded that bioplastic packaging is at an early developmental stage with no dominant company or entity — 40% of all inventions are held by organizational applicants with just a single invention, and fewer than one in 10 applicants has filed 10 or more inventions.

-Replacing plant pulp plastic with sustainable packaging appeals to a multi-million dollar endorsement – Newsdio

In a small suburb of Melbourne, Two entrepreneurs are developing a technology that could mean big changes for the packaging industry.

Stuart Gordon and Mark Appleford are the co-founders of Varden, a company that has developed a process to take the waste material from sugar cane and turn it into a paper-like packaging product with the functional attributes of plastic.

Its technology managed to capture the attention of Horizons Ventures, the venture capital fund that manages the money of Li Ka-shing, one of the richest men in the world, and $ 2.2 million in funds.Petrochemicals PET Packaging rPolyamide

-New Conair HRG Series vacuum pumps launched

The new Conair HRG Series vacuum pumps are suitable to develop deep vacuum power for conveying plastic pellets over long distances, while keeping noise levels comfortably low.

An optional variable-frequency drive is available to save energy and makes the new pump suitable for use in Conair Wave Conveying systems. Petrochemicals PET Packaging rPolyamide

The three-stage pump design, with regenerative impellers smoothly cut, capture and compress the air with minimal draft or vibration. Like twin turbo chargers on automobile engines, the vacuum becomes deeper and more powerful at each stage allowing the HRG Series pumps to convey material up to 1000 linear feet.

-Brazil sinks into fresh political crisis

Brazil is on the threshold of a fresh political crisis on top of an oil market collapse that has already set back the non-Opec country’s pre-salt bonanza.

Justice minister Sergio Moro, a prominent member of far-right president Jair Bolsonaro’s cabinet and the crusading judge who prosecuted the sweeping Lava Jato corruption case, resigned today. In a high-profile press conference, Moro issued a fusillade of accusations against his erstwhile boss. Petrochemicals PET Packaging rPolyamide

For Brazil’s oil industry led by state-controlled Petrobras, Moro’s departure potentially opens a new period of political instability.
