Technology

Biodegradable polymers are generally recognized as those which are designed to degrade through the action of living organisms.

BIOTEC BAGS® with enzyme compounded polyethylene constitutes of enzymes, sodium salts and oxidation agents with LDPE / HDPE AND LLDPE is a highly cost effective and eco friendly non hazardous technology used primarily for making CARRY BAGS, GARBAGE BAGS, POLYETHELENE LINERS AND FILMS.

THE TECHNOLOGY – EVOLUTION

It is observed that world over there were certain process methodology /inventions /claims about the availability of starch/cellulose/lactic acid based compositions with polyethylene to make a degradable plastic. We found to our dismay that ‘Neither’ all of them or ‘None’ of them could effectively break down the polymer matrix and make the polyethylene completely biodegrade in the soil environment. Having decided to adopt a different road map to achieve a possible complete biodegradation of plastic film, we explored the possibility and process ability of enzyme and bacteria based substrate to effectively penetrate in to the polyethylene chain structure.

-Trump Set To Unveil Plan To Boost Biofuels

The Trump Administration is set to announce later on Friday a plan to boost ethanol and biodiesel demand and placate the farming lobby angered by the Administration’s waivers for dozens of oil refineries exempted from blending corn-based ethanol in fuels, Reuters reports, quoting four sources with knowledge of the matter.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy 

Under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), oil refiners are required to blend growing amounts of renewable fuels into gasoline and diesel. The Midwest farm belt benefits from the policy, but the oil refiners do not—they lose petroleum-based market share of fuels and meeting the blending requirements costs them hundreds of millions of dollars.

-Non-plastic packaging isn’t the only sustainable solution

Plastic waste is becoming a more pressing concern for today’s consumers than it has ever been in the past. Research tells us that an average of eight million metric tons of plastic waste enters the ocean each year and that this plastic waste can impact the health of the oceans, marine life and maybe even human health.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy 

The growing body of research on marine plastic pollution, along with news about upheaval in recycling export markets, has led to increased awareness among the public of the challenges at the end of life for plastics.

Purified PP: PureCycle Technologies, a company that licenses a PP recycling and purification technology from Procter & Gamble, has signed a deal with packaging manufacturer AptarGroup. PureCycle’s technology removes color, odor and other contaminants from recycled PP. Over the next three years, Aptar, which makes packaging and dispensing caps and lids for packages, will provide detailed feedback on the processing of the recycled PP into its products, according to a press release. The company will also help PureCycle’s plastic meet European food-contact requirements. Bloomberg recently published photos showing parts of PureCycle’s feedstock evaluation unit facility in Ohio.

-Verdex develops PET carpet recycling technology

As part of a joint effort with Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), Verdex Technologies has developed a technology that can take recycled PET carpet & bottles and turn them into an array of apparel and textile products for a variety of markets. The technology enables the apparel industry solve the ever-growing problem of landfilling carpet and ocean plastic.

Verdex’s patented spinning nozzle technology converts PCC material directly into nano/micro fibres which are blended with larger fibres to form products for the apparel and textile markets. Verdex technology is capable of spinning recycled cleaned PET carpet containing polypropylene and calcium carbonate components. This technology has massive potential in the performance apparel market due the nanofibres producing a much stronger Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR) compared to competing products on the market.

-How injection moulding could benefit the medical sector

Manufacturer Pentagon Plastics Group, explains how plastics injection moulding and mould tool manufacture can provide solutions to many applications in the medical sector.

Each new product range brings its own challenges, and therefore it is crucial to have the right network of support in place from the outset.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy

In order to achieve a successful manufacturing experience, it is necessary to have a product designer, material expert, mould tool manufacturer, plastic injection moulder, multiple medical engineers and marketing staff within each team.

It is also vital that areas of concern are addressed within the manufacturing process, and factors such as ease of use, comfort, flexibility, repeatability and the longevity of a product must be monitored.

-Polish invention combats UV-radiation

The record heat in Europe has also being enjoyed by scientists from Łódź (Poland).

Among their own inventions are materials that protect against UV radiation. We usually remember about UV radiation when the sun is out and shining brightly.

Then we smear ourselves in sunscreen and cover our bodies with clothes in the hope that we will be kept safe from the sun. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Creams and ordinary clothes protect only to a small extent. 95% of UVA radiation from the sun reaches the Earth regardless of the season or cloud cover.

It easily penetrates through clothing (even thick clothing), skin and reaches the deep layers of our skin.Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy

-Cargill slashes 1200 tons of plastic from its vegetable oil bottles

Ingredients supplier Cargill has reduced the amount of plastic used in its vegetable oil bottles and containers by over 2.5 million pounds (680,000 kg) globally. Different strategies Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy

have been used in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and South America – the four geographies in which Cargill’s edible oils are manufactured.

These include using new bottling technology and adding in recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic. The move comes as Cargill acknowledges that plastic packaging is a growing concern for many of its customers and consumers because of plastic waste pollution and the environmental impact of producing it.

-EPCA ’19: Europe BDO poor demand to persist on weak auto sales

Low demand in the European butanediol (BDO) market is expected to persist into 2020 if automotive sales do not improve.

Downstream polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) demand remains weak and bearishness is likely to continue in the fourth quarter, as year-end destocking takes place.

Alongside tepid demand, ample global BDO supply is expected to continue with high inventories across the board. Petrochemicals Graphene Bioeconomy

Weak demand and lengthy supply fundamentals are key factors considered in the ongoing fourth-quarter contract negotiations.
