Polymer distributor, Plastribution, has launched what it says is the UK’s first portfolio of materials with more sustainable credentials.
The move is in response to ongoing environmental concerns regarding plastic and the calls from designers, brand owners, OEMs and converters for solutions for a diverse range of applications.
For compounders and concentrate makers, 2019 has been a confusing year.
Although some companies in that field have done quite well, others have fallen short of expectations. And economic uncertainty remains a concern for companies regardless of their 2019 results.Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
Plastics News recently checked in with executives at several compounding and concentrates firms as well as market watchers to sort out the year that’s winding to a close and to take a look at what 2020 might hold.
INEOS and Viridor have announced they are joining forces in a UK-based project that will see the production of a new range of high-specification polymers with up to 50 per cent recycled content.Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
The hybrid polymers will be produced by INEOS using recovered plastics from Viridor’s new £65m post-consumer polymers recycling plant at the Avonmouth Resource Recovery Centre, near Bristol.
TENCEL has announced its partnership with slow fashion label PAUSE to create a sustainable collection.
The collection titled ‘Ethical and Edgy’ brings together the perfect balance of utility and multifunctional clothing.Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
Each ensemble has been created with the utmost care and an eye for detail, allowing it to be worn and styled in different ways.
The structure of the garments highlights the features of TENCEL fibers, giving it a smooth, soft finish and fluid texture.
This capsule collection features a range of deconstructed separates – jackets that convert to dresses, dresses which convert to tops, making fashion choices limitless.
The subsequent era of waterproof, right materials might be laser printed and made in minutes.Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
That is the long run imagined by the researchers behind new e-textile expertise.
Scientists from RMIT College in Melbourne, Australia, have developed a price-environment friendly and scalable methodology for quickly fabricating textiles that are embedded with vitality storage units.
Manmade cellulosic fibers category are increasing steadily with a market share of approximately 6.2% of total fiber production volume, double what it was in 1990.
Preferred fibers gain strength. Global fiber production has reached all-time high, reaching 107 million metric tons in 2018, and is expected to grow to 145 million metric tons by 2030 “if business-as-usual continues”, according to a report by Textile Exchange. In this growth, preferred fibers are gaining market share.
A fire which broke out last week at Faurecia’s plant in Abrera, Spain has impacted production at the Seat assembly plant at Martorell and the wider supply chain.
Faurecia was supplying dashboards to Seat on a just-in-time basis for all the models made at Martorell, near Barcelona. Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
The fire, which broke out on the evening of Tuesday night (19) affected one of three buildings at the tier one supplier’s facility, which includes paintshop operations. That equipment is reported to have been completely destroyed in the blaze, according to local news source La Tribuna de Automoción.
At ITMA, Barcelona in June 2019, Karl Mayer illustrated how easily yarns can be processed on its warp knitting machines whilst conserving resources at the same time.
During the fair, the new HKS 3-M-ON produced a patterned tricot fabric carrying Trevira’s Sinfineco label. Karl Mayer is the world leader in the manufacture of textile machinery.
Trevira, a fibre producer, awards the label for textiles that are produced from its sustainable products.Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
The range includes fibres and filaments made entirely from high-quality, recycled chips. The regranulate is obtained from PET bottles.
An important part of the trash that pollutes the world comes from plastic packaging.
As time has gone by packaging has gone from a small part of the world’s enterprises to a major issue that engages all sorts of people from academics trying to design new ways of doing it to engineers who design and make the containers that everything comes in these days.Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
A new Changing Markets Foundation report has flagged up the extent of greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution within the carpet industry, as it’s found that – despite a shift from landfilling – 73 per cent of an estimated 256 million m2 is instead incinerated.
In contrast, only two per cent of carpet in then UK is recycled and less than one per cent is reused.Petrochemical PET Textile Sustainability
