-RecyClass endorses films for HDPE recycling

In what Avery Dennison claims is a market first, RecyClass has approved products from the former’s film portfolio for complying with HDPE recycling guidelines. Label producers and brand owners across the home and personal care and food sectors will benefit from this, as Avery Dennison states that it can help them increase recycling rates.

Currently, RecyClass guidelines state that for packaging to be fully recyclable, the PE, machine direction oriented (MDO) or PP label must be removable through the ‘cold wash’ process, which uses water heated to 40 deg C. This is the most common method of recycling HDPE packaging in Europe, but labels that can be removed at this temperature can also come off during normal use, like when a shampoo bottle is taken in the shower.Petrochemicals Packaging Pollution

RecyClass approved Avery Dennison’s PE White, MDO White and PP Clear labels, which feature a permanent acrylic adhesive and remain in place during a cold wash, after extensive independent testing.

-LanzaTech and Twelve partnered to produce world’s first polypropylene from CO2

Twelve’s carbon transformation technology converts CO2 into materials that are traditionally made from fossil fuels Petrochemicals Packaging Pollution

Carbon transformation company Twelve and biotechnology company LanzaTech partnered to transform CO2 emissions into polypropylene, a key polymer used for medical devices including syringes and IV bags, as well as for large-scale applications in automotive, furniture, textiles and other everyday products.

Twelve’s carbon transformation technology converts CO2 into materials that are traditionally made from fossil fuels. The company helps brands eliminate emissions by replacing the petrochemicals in their products and supply chains with CO2Made® carbon negative chemicals and materials, as well as carbon neutral fuels.

LanzaTech’s carbon recycling Pollution To Products™ technology uses nature-based solutions to produce ethanol and other materials from waste carbon sources. The partnership will bring together the two platform technologies to enable additional product development from CO2 streams, representing just one of many pathways to scale carbon transformation solutions.

-Next Horizons: Heimtextil presents the 2022/23 trends

International trade fair for home and contract textiles, 11 – 14 January 2022 to take place in Frankfurt/Main Petrochemicals Packaging Pollution

Three international design agencies form the Heimtextil Trend Council. Together, they develop a well-founded global vision of the coming interior trends. Alongside the Heimtextil Trend Council, Heimtextil management has established a trend forecast for the coming season and presented it live via an online conference on 1 September 2021 from Frankfurt am Main. Trend Council members Anja Bisgaard Gaede from SPOTT trends & business from Denmark who is directing all trend activities this season, Anne Marie Commandeur from Stiljinstituut Amsterdam and Kate Franklin and Caroline Till from London studio FranklinTill shared their insights into the future of the industry. Designers, interior architects and decorators get inspired by the design forecast for the new season.

Next Horizons: long-term and circular mindset

The Next Horizons are not a fixed goal or a finish line – they are mindsets. These are made up of long-term thinking, accepting that the best way to impact the world is simply not to. Paradoxically, we have begun our transition to sustainability by addressing the problems within our manufactured system instead of transforming our approach to not create waste or imbalance. Transforming our nexus begins with accepting our economies are embedded within nature.

-India to become first Asian country to launch a Plastics Pact

September 06, 2021 | Global themes | UKRI | Swindon, Wiltshire | United Kingdom

India has become the first Asian country to develop a plastics pact, launching a ground-breaking new initiative to bring together leading businesses at a national level to make commitments for building a circular system for plastics.

The India Plastics Pact (IPP) has launched as a collaboration between:

  • WWF India
  • the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

The pact is supported by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and WRAP, and endorsed by the British High Commission in India.

In Autumn 2020, UKRI committed £250,000 of funding to:

  • enable WRAP to establish the India Plastics Pact
  • initiate start-up
  • engage the Indian government
  • develop the appropriate targets and priority work streams for India.

Launching the pact

The pact was formally announced on 3 September, at the CII 16th Sustainability Summit. Professor Sir Duncan Wingham, Executive Chair of NERC spoke at the event alongside Alex Ellis, the British High Commissioner to India who was the keynote speaker.Petrochemicals Packaging Pollution

-Towards a circularity in recycling of mattresses

After an average of ten years most mattresses today are thrown away, thus squandering resources and creating high quantities of waste. At the same time, valuable raw materials are needed to manufacture new soft foam mattresses – above all crude oil. A circular economy solution for mattresses can therefore both reduce waste and save fossil resources. Petrochemicals Packaging Pollution

At BASF, we are continuously looking at ways to reuse and re-enter waste into product lifecycles and to foster circular economy solutions. With the circular economy concept BASF aims to decouple economic growth from the use of finite resources and is accelerating the adoption of these principles into our day-to-day operations. BASF offers a solution to finally closing the loop for polyurethane soft foam with the chemical recycling of mattresses.

-Social cost of plastic pollution more than GDP of India

The pollution, emissions and clean-up costs of plastic produced in 2019 alone could be $3.7 trillion, according to a report released Monday (6 September) by wildlife charity WWF, warning of the environmental and economic burden of this “seemingly cheap” material. Petrochemicals Packaging Pollution

There is increasing international alarm over the sheer volumes of fossil-fuel based plastics entering the environment, as microplastics have infiltrated even the most remote and otherwise pristine regions of the planet.

In its report, WWF said societies were “unknowingly subsiding” plastic, with their estimates for the lifetime costs of 2019 production equivalent to more than the gross domestic product of India.
