-India’s scope huge to serve Japan’s textile sector: envoy

As the pandemic has prompted Japanese companies to diversify their supply chain, the Indian textile sector has the potential to serve the specific needs of this sector despite India’s share in the Japanese market being negligible, Indian ambassador to Japan Sanjay K Verma recently said virtually inaugurating the 7th edition of India Tex Trend Fair in Tokyo.

“India can provide a more resilient supply value chain to Japan as India has comparative advantage in the textile sector in terms of low-cost production and traditional knowledge in the sector. The Indian exporters will have to address some issues like productivity and prices,” he was quoted as saying by Indian media reports.

-Bioplastics with variable end-of-life options – The right film for every market

As a branch of AKRO-PLASTIC GmbH, BIO-FED is the specialist for innovative and application-oriented biocompounds. The product portfolio under the trade name M·VERA® is constantly being expanded with new products.

Depending on the requirements profile, these compounds are either biodegradable in various environments or suitable for long-term use – and completely or partially made from renewable raw materials.  Petrochemicals Biodegradable CrudeOil

The legislation in various European countries for film packaging is currently becoming increasingly stringent. For example, a biobased carbon content of 60% or more and the “OK compost INDUSTRIAL” certificate will be mandatory for the fruit and vegetable bags in Italy from January 2021. In France, this carbon content does not have to be reached until the end of 2024. In this case, however, the specifications according to “OK compost HOME” must also be fulfilled for the fruit and vegetable bags, as has been the case up to now.

-KraussMaffei Debuts Side-Entry Netstal PET-Line

The first machine in the new series, with a clamping force of 4,000 kN and 6000 injection unit accommodating molds with up to 128 cavities, is now available.

KraussMaffei HighPerformance launched today its new side-entry Netstal PET-Line that is fully compatible with legacy side-entry molds and post-mold cooling stations. A machine with a 4,000-kN clamping force and 6000 injection unit that accommodates molds with up to 128 cavities is now available; other models will follow to suit the full range of common beverage applications, said KraussMaffei.Petrochemicals Biodegradable CrudeOil

The laterally positioned post-mold cooling station is the most obvious feature of the new preform system, said KraussMaffei in making the announcement, adding that a closer inspection will reveal numerous other optimizations. For example, the company believes that the proportion of recycled PET (rPET) in bottle production will continue to increase in the years ahead.

-Weekly Resin Report: Stormy Weather Sends PE, PP Resin Prices to Lofty Levels

Prices for both PE and PP resins were already on the rise before Hurricane Laura and then jumped in chunks over the past several weeks. Meanwhile, more storms are forming in the Atlantic, with at least one targeting the Gulf Coast. Petrochemicals Biodegradable CrudeOil

Despite challenging polyethylene (PE) conditions last week, high volumes in polypropylene (PP) generated one of the best overall weeks ever at the PlasticsExchange trading desk. The industry is reeling in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura, reports the PlasticsExchange in its Market Update: Some resin production remains offline, largely as a result of significant damage to the Louisiana power grid, and supply chains are still interrupted. As expected, the flow of fresh railcar offers was sporadic, and most material was off grade. Prime truckloads of all commodity grades were available, but in limited quantities. Prices for both PE and PP resins were already on the rise before the storm and then jumped in chunks over the past several weeks. They are now transacting at lofty levels.

-Mitsui Chemicals, Nagaoka University of Technology launch joint research to develop plastic waste recycling

Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (Tokyo) announced that it has launched a joint research project in pursuit of innovative technology to promote the recycling of plastic waste, working here with Professor TAKAHASHI Tsutomu, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering, Nagaoka University of Technology, National University Corporation, said Chemweek. Petrochemicals Biodegradable CrudeOil

Plastic waste often includes varying states of the material, meaning that when heat is applied for material recycling, the melted plastic is uneven in terms of fluidity. This in turn results in the regenerated plastic itself being unable to maintain a consistent level of fluidity or quality, limiting its range of possible applications. But with this new joint development project, Mitsui Chemicals aims over the course of the next three years to develop technology that will facilitate in-line measurement and control for the melted plastic’s fluidity, which will in turn help to stabilize the quality of the regenerated plastic.

-AkzoNobel receives Boeing approval for color blending in China

AkzoNobel’s aerospace coatings facility in Dongguan, China, has been qualified by aircraft manufacturer Boeing to color blend the company’s Aerodur 3001 basecoat, said Chemweek.  Petrochemicals Biodegradable CrudeOil

The certification means the site has been certified by Boeing to blend AkzoNobel’s industry-leading basecoat/clearcoat system, Aerodur 3001/3002, locally in China with OEM (original equipment manufacturer) approval. The Dongguan facility is also now listed on Boeing’s official QPL for BMS10-72 specification.

QPL approval status is an important milestone for the facility, which opened in 2017 to specifically serve the North and South Asian aviation market and deliver cutting-edge technologies faster and more reliably. “We’re proud to receive this certification from Boeing,” says Ron Fattal, AkzoNobel’s Key Account Manager for Boeing. “It’s further recognition of our commitment to putting the needs of our customers at the heart of our product development.”

-Bottles with 50% recycled plastic (rPET) by Coca-Cola (Italian Language Only)

50% of regenerated plastic in PET bottles by 2020, the commitment of the colossus Coca-Cola   Petrochemicals Biodegradable CrudeOil
While unilateral news circulates in Italy that “there is no market for recycled plastic”, some news from the world:

12/07/2017 COCA COLA EUROPEAN PARTNERS plans to increase the content of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) in its bottles from 25 to 50% by 2020. In addition, it will launch a communication campaign aimed at encouraging more people to recycle. The campaign will include a “new and clear recycling message” on the bottles and a “collection system with reward for empty bottles”.

25/10/2017 NEW MEGA PLANET RPLANET EARTH: Construction is underway of a mega plastics recycling plant in the Los Angeles area, which will process the bales of post-consumer PET bottles up to the production of preforms of bottles, sheets extrusions and thermoformed packaging. The 302,000-square-foot facility in Vernon, California was built for a new company, rPlanet Earth, which will power post-consumer PET bottles from door-to-door collections. The processing cycle includes washing, decontamination and regeneration in food and beverage packaging. It will be able to produce approximately 36,300 tonnes of finished product per year. “The percentage of recycled content in the new products will depend on the wishes of the customer, but the facility will be able to generate 100% RPET products” said Daviduk the CEO by rPlanet Earth.
