-Amcor Designs Lightest 900-ml PET Bottle for Brazilian Market

The custom container for agribusiness and food producer Bunge is 22% lighter than competitive bottles while providing greater productivity and increased sustainability benefits. Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

Lightweighting of packaging continues apace, as companies seek higher efficiencies in plastics processing and greater sustainability. Amcor in Ann Arbor, MI, a global developer and producer of packaging for food, beverage, pharmaceuticals, and other products, has developed the lightest 900-ml PET bottle for a customer in Brazil.

The custom-designed container for agribusiness and food producer Bunge, based in Sao Paulo, is 22% lighter than competitive bottles while providing greater productivity and increased sustainability benefits. The new bottle for Bunge’s oleo de soja Soya brand represents Amcor’s entry into the edible oil market in Brazil. The new PET container is resealable, reusable, and “infinitely recyclable” with existing technologies, including chemical recycling.

-Raw material shortage led robustness in BoPET prices: Uflex

Packaging materials and solution company Uflex on Friday said raw material shortage led robustness in BoPET (biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate) prices.

In an interview to CNBC-TV18, Rajesh Bhatia, group president (Finance & Accounts) and chief financial officer, said, “October was better than September in terms of overall spread for us.”  Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

BoPET spreads have seen a sequential correction starting in October. BoPET is basically a polyester film used for its high tensile strength among other features.

-Europe struggling with second wave lockdowns, EU needs recovery plan

Chemicals trade group Cefic is downbeat on European chemical industry performance running into the year end, highlighting the seriousness of the second wave of the Covid-19 outbreak and its expected impact.

Other agencies had been more upbeat through the autumn months with the regular data charting the upturn since May. And in their most recent quarterly financial reports, most chemical companies operating in the region were trying to be positive too, pointing to the fact that October had been better than September.

Forward visibility was limited, however, although there was a sense that, for petrochemicals at least, a typical fourth-quarter lull might not be seen this year because of reduced inventories and more ‘just in time’ buying. Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

These reports, however, were made as second wave lockdowns began to bite.

-Germany’s Audi, tech institute launch project to recycle automotive plastics

German car maker Audi and the country’s Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) have teamed up on a pilot project for the chemical recycling of automotive plastics.

Under the project, the partners will take used auto plastic components – such as fuel tanks, wheel trim parts and radiator grills – from Audi models, and use chemical recycling to process them into pyrolysis oil. Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

This oil can then be used to make new plastics materials.

“If plastic components can be produced from pyrolysis oil instead of petroleum, it would be possible to significantly increase the proportion of sustainably manufactured components in automobiles,” said Marco Philippi, senior director for procurement strategy at Audi.

“In the long run, this method can also play a role in end-of-life vehicle recycling.”

-Chemical recycling boost could see global plastic packaging recycling hit 50% by 2040

If the plastics value chain becomes more sustainable, the industry must focus on reducing the amount of mismanaged waste and recapturing as much of its value as possible

Approximately 220 million tonnes (MT) of plastic waste is generated globally each year. Of this, around 90MT is mismanaged and leaking into the natural environment, 70MT is landfilled, 30MT is incinerated and another 30MT is recycled.

If the plastics value chain is to become more sustainable, the industry must focus on reducing the amount of mismanaged waste and recapturing as much of its value as possible. To do this, more investment must be allocated to chemical recycling technologies, according to Wood Mackenzie. Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

“Mechanical recycling has, to date, been the best way of capturing the value of plastic waste by turning it into other useful applications. However, the approach has its limitations.

-Plastic Material: A Molder’s Perspective

Every material has its own unique set of physical attributes, and we must use the appropriate information and procedures to assure that our processes are sound and repeatable. Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

As processors, we are required to mold parts using a large assortment of engineered resins. Each has its own unique characteristics—polypropylene does not perform the same as nylon; amorphous materials do not possess the same processing characteristics as crystalline resins. The material topic is broad, and experts such as Mike Sepe have made careers out of their understanding of this complex subject matter.

There are many common factors that if known and practiced will make a molder’s job easier. Although tensile strength and density are important elements of Safety Data Sheet (SDS) data to the engineer choosing a material for a specific application, the process engineer does not need this information to develop a process.

-America’s Plastic Makers Call on Congress to Support EPA’s First-Ever National Recycling Goal

The American Chemistry Council and its members applaud EPA’s National Recycling Goal to increase the US recycling rate to 50% by 2030. Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

As part of its recognition of America Recycles Day on Nov. 17, America’s plastic makers called on Congress to work with industry to prioritize recycling legislation in 2021.

“The plastics industry has set an ambitious goal of reusing, recycling, or recovering 100% of plastic packaging in the US by 2025,” said Joshua Baca, Vice President, Plastics, for the American Chemistry Council (ACC). “All of us have an interest in ensuring that plastics are collected and recycled into new and valuable products instead of ending up in our environment, and success will require many forms of collaboration.

-Low-Cost Sorting of Plastic Waste

A staggering 50% of worldwide plastic production is used once and then disposed of, leading to pollution and depletion of natural resources.1 While recycling can help tackle this problem, accurate identification of plastic type is a crucial step to make it viable. Any mistake in identification can degrade the quality of the final product—with both commercial and scientific implications.2 Recently, we enlisted laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and machine learning to create an approach for rapidly sorting plastic waste—at very low cost.3  Petrochemical CarbonFiber Recycling H2

Various laser-based methods for sorting plastics have been reported, but the color and thickness of the plastic greatly affect their performance.4 LIBS can help overcome many of the difficulties faced by conventional spectroscopic techniques, requires minimal sample preparation, and is capable of use in standoff scenarios.
