-Coke hits back at Johnson on plastics

Coca-Cola has rebutted an attack on its use of plastics by prime minister Boris Johnson.

Johnson’s comments came from the same session for school pupils in which he caused a furore by criticising plastics recycling as “a red herring”.

The prime minister at first drew back from singling out Coca-Cola but then named the company.

He said: “There are about 12 companies, big corporations, that produce the overwhelming bulk of the world’s plastics – famous drink companies you may know but I won’t name, but why not – Coca-Cola, for instance. It produces huge quantities of plastic and we have got to find other ways of packaging [as] it’s ending up in the eco-system.”

A Coca-Cola Company spokesperson said: “The world has a packaging problem. As the world’s biggest beverage company, we have a responsibility to help solve it.

“We believe circular recycling solutions are imperative in creating a path to keep plastic out of our natural environments for good.

-Eunomia: Key considerations for Integration of recycled content in plastic products

Eunomia Research & Consulting have carried out new research which has identified key considerations to verify recycled content claims in plastic products to inform actions in support of Canada’s target of achieving at least 50% recycled content in plastic products, where applicable, by 2030. This target aims to extend the life of materials, reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions, and support the transition to a circular economy.

Currently, Canada generates approximately 3 million tonnes of plastic waste, of which 9% is recycled and represents a loss of approximately $8 billion in value to the Canadian economy. The remainder is discarded in landfills or leaks into the environment as plastic pollution, where it has caused harm to organisms and their habitats.

To address this, companies around the globe in various sectors across the economy are increasingly using recycled content and adopting voluntary recycled content targets for plastic products and packaging. As governments and industry consider actions to increase the use of recycled plastic, a critical element will be how to measure and verify recycled content in products.Packaging Nonwoven Plastics Brics

To support this approach, the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada commissioned us to carry out a comparative assessment of existing and in-development North American and international standards and certification protocols for verifying recycled content in plastic products, following which the company identified needs for effective future certification programs.

-Berry Global sees exponential growth in recycled plastics volumes – CEO

The use of recycled plastics for food service and other offerings is poised for exceptional growth, with Berry Global helping to enable that demand, its CEO said on Tuesday.

Berry recently announced a collaboration with restaurant chain Wendy’s and LyondellBasell to supply recycled plastic clear cups with 20% recycled content to Wendy’s US and Canadian restaurants in early 2022. It will start with large cups, and by 2023 all drink cups will use recycled plastic.  Packaging Nonwoven Plastics Brics

“[Volumes] will grow exponentially. Wendy’s has a goal to translate this across their entire cup set and we wholly expect to be partnered with them to do just that,” said Tom Salmon, CEO of Berry Global, in an interview with ICIS.

In the first two years, volumes of chemically recycled polypropylene (PP) going into the cups will amount to around 10m lb (4,536 tonnes), which means a greater amount of waste plastics are being diverted from landfills, he noted.

-Cementing BRICS together

The first two decades of the 21st century have witnessed tectonic transformations. Modern technology has resulted in an exponential growth in mutual awareness and empowerment of increasingly interdependent global citizens.

The Westphalian state system of the last 372 years is having to increasingly reckon with the unfolding specter of non-state actors such as transnational organizations (both governmental and non-governmental), multinational corporations and terrorist networks.

Moving beyond their historical preoccupation with enhancing the destructive capabilities of their armed forces, states now need to ensure the productivity and prosperity that constitute critical components of national power. National security is inclusive of development. Power is being replaced by influence. The conventional understanding of power-so-called hard power-is being supplemented by soft power, smart power and sharp power; all undergirded by human resources, technologies and financial leverage.

This has changed the global hierarchy, producing new clusters of power in international relations. For example, while the economic rise of the then West Germany and Japan in the 1970s-in the midst of the Cold War-did not make them great powers, the economic rise of China since the 1990s-coinciding with the collapse of the Soviet Union-has given Beijing enormous system-shaping leverages. This explains how emerging economies have come to be as celebrated as a new category of influencers in international decision-making processes and structures. Packaging Nonwoven Plastics Brics
