The global automotive industry is an indispensable part of the manufacturing sector and a cornerstone for economic development among all major countries in the world.
This can be attributed to the fact that industrial activities such as trade and transportation rely largely on the automotive industry.
The automotive sector consumes a significant amount of textile materials for interior trims such as seating areas, headliners, carpets, side panels, dashboards, air bags, seat belts and filters, among other parts which may be visible or concealed within an automobile.
First Graphene has signed an exclusive agreement with the UK’s University of Manchester, with the duo to collaborate on the development of energy storage materials including a new class of high-performance capacitors made from a graphene-hybrid.
This latest agreement expands on the duo’s formerly-established collaboration, with both organizations to make metal oxide decorated graphene materials, which have very high gravimetric capacitance of up to 500 Farads/g. Manchester University’s previous research has revealed high capacitance materials up to 500 Farads/g are possible and outperform existing materials.
The bio-based polyester demonstrated great potential and could be used as engineering plastic.
PCF (poly(1,4-cyclohexanedimethylene furandicarboxylate) was synthesized from FDCA and CHDM with different steric conformation.
The melting temperature of PCF could be up to 294 °C and its crystallization half-time could be only several seconds. Petrochemicals Automotive Industry Graphene
Oil prices have already pulled back from their surge following last weekend’s drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil infrastructure. This has led some to say “See, it’s a big nothing-burger.”
I believe they are seriously missing the point and underestimating the implications.
These attacks are unprecedented in the history of the global oil industry. These attacks against one of Saudi Arabia’s largest oilfields and the world’s biggest crude processing facility at Abqaiq sidelined a total of 5.7 million barrels per day (BPD) of oil production.
In order to accommodate the strong demand for light blocking colourants in PET packaging for dairy applications, Holland Colours is expanding its manufacturing capacity in Asia.
The company is investing in its Surabaya, Indonesia plant to increase the capacity of its light barrier solutions as it expects a surge in global demand for PET packaging for long shelf-life milk.
Holland Colours introduced the first versions of its advanced light barrier technology for monolayer PET UHT milk packaging, called Holcomer, back in 2007.

Recycled PET (rPET) has been a popular theme at PACK EXPO Las Vegas this week, reflecting an increasing number of CPGs asking for their plastic packaging to be made from higher and higher percentages of recycled content. But as those percentages rise, so does the potential for defects and color variations.
Innovia Films recently hosted a return visit from Sue Hayman MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, accompanied by Sandy Martin MP, Shadow Minister for Waste & Recycling.
Stephen Langstaff delivered the Wigton, Cumbria headquartered firm’s sustainability presentation which highlights what it is doing to develop products that can reduce food waste while facilitating easier recycling.
The company also took the opportunity to emphasise the need to standardise waste collection across the country and the need to collect and recycle flexible packaging.
New EnviroFlex PE delivers sustainability attributes, including return-to-store recycling.
Sonoco announced the introduction of EnviroFlex PE recyclable polyethylene flexible packaging. EnviroFlex PE is eligible to use the How2Recycle Store Drop-Off label, which means it can be dropped off (clean and dry) at local retail stores for recycling with grocery bags.
A project of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC), How2Recycle is a standardized la-beling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public in accordance with Federal Trade Commission Green Guides.
