-UK researchers develop new method of recycling plant-based plastics

Researchers from the University of Bath and the University of Birmingham have developed a new way of recycling plant-based plastics instead of letting them rot in landfills.

The new method converts plastics into their constituent chemical molecules, potentially enabling products to be recycled repeatedly without reducing the quality.

The researchers used lower temperatures and more environmentally friendly catalysts compared with earlier methods.

EU nationals concerned about their status in the U.K. wrapped themselves in a queue around the City Hall building in London Bridge — the office of London Mayor Sadiq Khan. Belgian buns and waffles were served as they flocked to seek legal advice and emotional support.

-OPEC, Russia could meet to discuss emergency cuts as coronavirus crushes oil price

Oil plunged into bear market territory, after hitting a high in early January amid tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

Now OPEC and its allies are considering moving up their March meeting to discuss deepening their production cuts, amid worries the coronavirus will significantly curb demand.Fabric Carbon Fiber RePackaging

“This is a worst case scenario for them—a hit to demand in China,” said John Kilduff, partner with Again Capital.

OPEC and its allies could meet soon to discuss deepening their production cuts, in an effort to stem the sharp decline in oil prices due to a demand scare from the coronavirus outbreak.

-New natural colourants can be part of a bigger ‘natural’ story, says PolyOne

PolyOne used the PCD cosmetics packaging show in Paris, France, this week as a springboard not only to launch its OnColor Naturals range of colourants derived from plants and minerals but also to emphasise how these additives can be advantageously combined with other materials such as sugarcane-derived biopolymers.

The new colourants are formulated using a range of plant, flower, root and mineral extracts, and were especially well-received by visitors to the show from the cosmetics and personal care sector, said PolyOne.Fabric Carbon Fiber RePackaging

-S-Oil sees refining profit margins rebounding

South Korean refiner S-Oil expects profit margins in its core refining business to recover this year after plunging to a decade low in last year’s final quarter, with the implementation of new International Maritime Organisation (IMO) marine fuel rules and an easing of US-China trade tensions accelerating demand growth.

Global demand growth for refined fuels will rise to 1.23mn b/d in 2020, outpacing a 1.03mn b/d increase in refining capacity, S-Oil said.

Demand growth slowed to less than 1mn b/d last year and was overtaken by a 1.39mn b/d gain in refining capacity.Fabric Carbon Fiber RePackaging

-New Process Turns Carbon-Based Trash Into ‘Wonder Material’ Graphene

Scientists have developed a new technique for turning almost any carbon-based rubbish – from banana skins to car tyres – into graphene flakes, a process that may provide hugely positive environmental impacts.Fabric Carbon Fiber RePackaging

The ‘flash graphene’ technique is quick and cheap, and involves heating up waste products to 3,000 Kelvin (2,727 degrees Celsius or 4,940 degrees Fahrenheit). That breaks the carbon bonds inside the target materials, which are then reconstructed as graphene in mere milliseconds.

Not only does this give us ways to make use of trash that would otherwise get thrown away, but it’s an efficient and inexpensive way of producing graphene, which can then be used in a variety of eco-friendly ways.
