-UK election: Major party manifestos spotlight plastic waste crisis signaling gravity of public concern

The UK’s December General Election will inevitably center on Brexit, but another policy issue growing in significance is the global plastic waste crisis and the UK’s role in it.

This is evidenced by the fact that the UK’s three major parties – Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrats – have all bolstered their manifestos with strategies to improve plastic waste management. Petrochemical PET Polyolefin fibers 

For example, all three parties have pledged to end the export of plastic waste while the introduction of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), Deposit Return Schemes (DRS) and investment in recycling infrastructure are also being promised.

That’s not surprising given they tend to err on the side of doing as little as possible because that’s often the easiest consensus to form among the group’s members.

What’s interesting is how they will come to that conclusion, given the wealth of data out there and the myriad ways of slicing and dicing it.

Key drivers include a global slowdown and lower prices abroad, a drop in prices of key feedstocks, and more than ample supply in many cases.Petrochemical PET Polyolefin fibers

Meanwhile, demand for bales of recycled material is going through the roof—particularly for HDPE and PP, with consumer brands demanding more recycle-content products—a trend that will only grow faster.

This column is based on “Ethylene Oxide Production from Ethylene – Cost Analysis,” a report published by Intratec.

Ethylene oxide (also known as EO, oxirane and epoxyethane) is the simplest cyclic ether. Because it is highly reactive, ethylene oxide is one of the most versatile chemical intermediates.  Petrochemical PET Polyolefin fibers

It is converted into a wide range of products (for example, monoethylene glycol (MEG), surfactants and glycol ethers).


-Packaging Converter Launches Film-Extrusion Business

Polymer Film & Bag Inc. will start with three-layer capacity of more than 20 million lb/yr, with additional expansion plans already firmed up.Petrochemical PET Polyolefin fibers

A firm with long-established roots in the converting industry—among other businesses—is branching out into blown film extrusion.
