-Russia, China to hold more U.N. talks on lifting N.Korea sanctions – diplomats

UNITED NATIONS, Dec 29 (Reuters) – U.N. Security Council members are due to meet informally on Monday for a second round of negotiations on a Russian and Chinese proposal to lift a raft of sanctions on North Korea, a move that some diplomats say has little support.

China and Russia are convening negotiations a day before North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s deadline for the United States to show flexibility in stalled talks aimed at getting Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons program. North Korea has warned the United States could receive an unwanted “Christmas gift” if it fails.

-Oil price rise muted in 2019 despite sanctions, supply cuts, attack in Saudi Arabia

Oil prices rose more than 20% this year but there were no sharp spikes and crude futures barely sniffed $70 a barrel despite attacks on the world’s biggest oil producer, sanctions that crippled crude exports of two OPEC members and gigantic supply cuts from big oil producing countries.

The price gains in crude oil benchmarks were all in the first quarter of 2019, even as the next several months featured supply shocks that in the past would probably have propelled crude past the $100 mark.

-OUTLOOK ’20: Latin American PET remains slow on long global supply

The polyethylene terephthalate (PET) markets in Latin America are likely to remain slow on the back of long supply, falling prices and low buying interest.

Latin American resin trading has been dragged down by an environment of tension that emerged during the third and fourth quarters of 2019. Economic and political difficulties in several countries will contribute to a cautious outlook for the first quarter of 2020.

Political events have severely impacted on local economies. This has led to demonstrations and civil unrest, hampering any hope of a significant improvement in the near future – despite the warmer weather. Petrochemical Polyamide Cellulose Fibres

-Petrochemical Product Margins at All-time Lows

The margins of petrochemical products such as ethylene have reached record lows and the industry is likely to have a hard time next year.

The ethylene margin recently became negative with the prices of downstream products such as polyethylene remaining stagnant.

Besides, the paraxylene margin has remained sluggish throughout this year.

China’s paraxylene self-sufficiency has exceeded 100 percent to adversely affect South Korean companies. Petrochemical Polyamide Cellulose Fibres

This year and next year, China is estimated to increase its paraxylene production by at least 12 million tons.

-Mealworms can effectively degrade toxic additives in plastics

One solution to the toxins produced from some forms of plastic could be found with the humble mealworm, according to new research. Mealworms are capable of eating plastic and its toxic by-products.

Stanford University scientists have shown how mealworms can consume various forms of plastic as well as digesting the toxic plastic additives in Styrofoam. Remarkably, there are no ill effects for the mealworm. Petrochemical Polyamide Cellulose Fibres

In terms of how mealworms can breakdown plastics and associated toxins, this comes down to the bacteria in the gut of the worm, which are capable of biodegradation. Mealworms are the larval form of the mealworm beetle, Tenebrio molitor, a species of darkling beetle.
