German packaging major Klöckner Pentaplast has launched a new sustainable range of expanded polypropylene packaging for the food service and foodservice sector.
Unveiled earlier this month, KP claims its Infinity line is fully recyclable, keeps food hotter for longer, is microwaveable, lightweight, durable, water resistant and resistant to acids, alkalis and hot oils.
Researchers have been working on mushrooms big time, and believe the fungi could be mankind’s solution to non-decomposable plastic waste Petrochemical PET Resin Textiles
Mushrooms can prove to be your natural earth cleaner and be a solution to the world’s plastic waste problem by making an alternative to the material that takes centuries to decompose.
New York-based biotech startup Ecovative has been exploring mycelium — the root-like structure of a mushroom – to tackle the plastic waste problem as the fungi provide a natural alternative to packaging materials made of Styrofoam.
That’s the general consensus among some of Europe’s leading plastic industry commentators – the very people working to re-shape the industry.
While plastic, in its myriad forms is ingrained in every aspect of our life, ‘plastiphobia’ has entered the vernacular as a condition, and the regulators are cracking down hard on an industry that already faces a number of complex challenges.Petrochemical PET Resin Textiles
But plastipobia shouldn’t be a thing. Plastic should not be demonised, rather treated like the crux of modern living that it actually is. The problem is not with plastic per se, rather recycling of plastic and its inappropriate usage.
Malaysia is set to publish a circular economy roadmap for plastics.
The roadmap will be introduced “by 2020”, as part of the 2018-2030 roadmap towards zero single-use plastics, according to reports by The Malaysian Reserve.
The roadmap aims to provide a direction for policy and stakeholders – including state governments. Petrochemical PET Resin Textiles
The International Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Dr Ong Kian Ming said Malaysia is now preparing to “take the next step towards sustainability”.
Amcor has adapted its technology to develop the first PET bottles for pasteurized beer in Brazil.
Amcor designed custom 600-mL containers for beverage maker New Age Bebidas of Leme, São Paulo, that feature the beauty of a glass-like, champagne-style base combined with the convenience of lightweight and shatter-resistant PET. Petrochemical PET Resin Textiles
As a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging for food and beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, home and personal care, and other products, Amcor is boldly stepping up to the plate to promote plastics as the material of choice.
With a goal of educating consumers, customers and other stakeholders on the benefits of plastic packaging, Amcor (Ann Arbor, MI) recently launched a “Choose Plastic” marketing campaign.Petrochemical PET Resin Textiles
Solvay Performance Polyamides’ new and advanced Technyl Max polyamide 66 (PA 66) technology was chosen by Carbody, an expert in safety and sealing solutions for the automotive industry, to develop its all-plastic brake pedal.
Designated ‘Skeleton’, the revolutionary pedal concept made in Technyl Max replaces conventional steel design with a lightweight hybrid structure.

“Automotive OEMs and Tiers are increasingly looking for high rigidity materials to substitute a range of metal components for the lightweighting of new energy vehicles,” comments Gérald Durski, Marketing Director for Solvay’s Performance Polyamides.
Chemicals Business, SCG, has accelerated its research and development to develop products fit for the Circular Economy principles, and unveiled special-grade plastic that can maximize the proportion of recyclable plastics while maintaining its excellent functional properties and minimizing plastic and resource usage.

The approach aims to respond to the global market demand for greater sustainability and enhance a competitive edge for brands and customers.
Recently, it has showcased a series of plastic innovations for sustainability at K2019, the world’s no.1 trade fair for plastics and rubber in Germany.
EC World is the leading global trade show dedicated to composite materials. Next year’s show, which takes place from 3-5 March 2020, at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, in Paris, will be the industry’s most significant annual event, hosting all the major players in a spirit of innovation, business and networking.
“With 1,400 expected exhibitors and more than 45,000 expected professional visits from 112 countries, JEC World has become a global festival, and the undisputed reference for the composites industry. Petrochemical PET Resin Textiles
JEC World 2020 looks set to be even bigger. It is already 95% booked – a strong demonstration of the industry’s commitment,” organisers report.
