-PET prices rose in Thailand amid an increase in quotations of raw materials and the strengthening of the national currency
ICIS reported : domestic spot prices for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for bottle production in Thailand have risen thanks to rising prices for purified terephthalic acid (TPA) and monoethylene glycol (MEG).
Thus, domestic spot offers for Thai bottled PET increased by an average of 1 Thai baht (THB) per kg and were at the level of 36.5 THB per kg, DEL (with delivery) for the week ended January 20.
For comparison, in the week ended January 13, price offers were at the level of 35-36 baht per kg, DEL.
Thai producers reported that domestic price offers are roughly equivalent to import parity at USD1,100-1,110 per tonne, FOB (free-board) Thailand.
It was also noted that the strengthening of the national currency against the dollar also contributed to the growth of price offers. PET prices plastic recycling
Earlier it was noted that Asian spot prices of paraxylene continued their upward trend.
It was facilitated by higher crude oil prices and an optimistic demand outlook.
Paraxylene supply is expected to remain balanced or slightly limited, with a few planned maintenance stops in the future and with a steady stream of material exports from Asia to the US.
On January 18, applications for March paraxylene shipments were at USD1,056 per tonne, CFR at major ports in Taiwan and/or China.
Compared to transactions at USD1,023–1,024 per tonne, CFR at major ports in Taiwan and/or China on the previous day.

The MoU was signed in co-operation with the UAE’s Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, which lays the groundwork for the new polyethylene terephthalate (PET) facility.
Spread over a 40,000-sq-m area in Abu Dhabi, the new plant, at full operating capacity, is likely to generate 100 odd jobs in addition to helping cut 18,000 MT of CO2 emission annually.
In line with the UAE’s efforts to reduce plastic pollution and boost trade through the export of recycled materials, the plant will recycle PET, a plastic material that is used in food packaging, such as plastic water bottles.

-RecyClass revises recycling guidelines & testing protocols
The latest scientific findings on existing and new packaging features, together with state-of-the-art recycling technologies, are at the heart of the update of both the RecyClass Design for Recycling Guidelines and the Recyclability Evaluation Protocols.
RecyClass conducted 15 test campaigns and issued 50 recyclability approvals in 2022. These recyclability assessments covered the recyclability of common packaging components for both rigid and flexible plastic packaging. All were carried out by recognised, independent laboratories.

For example, the evaluation included an assessment of the behaviour of PP in the rigid HDPE recycling stream and the impact of HPDE in the PP stream.
Similarly, the tests measured the compatibility of different types of lids for PS pots. For flexible packaging, technologies such as laminating adhesives and functional barriers were evaluated.
In addition, RecyClass has published new guidelines for white and natural PS containers, developed together with the relevant stakeholders in the value chain.
As white packaging has a high material value, this is now also reflected in the guidelines for “natural and white” HDPE, PP and the aforementioned PS containers.
While the design recommendations are the same, the new guidelines state that white packaging should be recycled in a separate stream from natural packaging.
-PET prices rose in the spot market in India
Bottle-grade spot prices for bottle-quality polyethylene terephthalate (PET) rose in India amid a lack of supply from the domestic market, ICIS reported.
Prices were at USD1,020-1,060 per tonne, FOB (free on board) India in the week ending January 20, compared with USD1,000-1,045 per tonne, FOB India in the week ending January 13.
Prices generally rose due to strong domestic demand, which led to a shortage of supply of Indian bottled PET. PET prices plastic recycling
One manufacturer was known to have sold spot volumes of bottled PET from its February quotas, while another manufacturer was known to have restricted shipments of February spot volumes of bottled PET.
Earlier it was reported that the Turkish company Sasa Polyester Sanayi increased the load of PET production in the city of Adana (Adana, Turkey) to 100%. Earlier, the load of this plant with a capacity of 365 thousand tons of PET per year was reduced in October last year due to low demand.
According to the ScanPlast review, in January-November 2022, the estimated consumption of PET in Russia amounted to 758.69 thousand tons, which corresponds to consumption for the same period a year earlier.
Compared with November 2021, total estimated consumption increased by 4% and amounted to 78.77 thousand tons against 75.44 thousand tons last year.
