-Adding plastics to the circular economy

The plastics industry is a responsible partner to policymakers and other stakeholders, working together to find solutions to the challenges of climate change, energy and resource efficiency, consumer protection, and the circular economy. Miguel Santos, CEO of Green and Circular Economy Investments, writes about going head-to-head with the issue of plastic recycling. Petrochemicals Preforms Smart Fabric

It was in pre-Columbian Mexico that polymers were used for the first time, evolving to the present day. Initially the industry developed synthetic polymers with cellulose and later with the use of petroleum. This evolution allowed polymers to be easier to produce, making it an essential and indispensable material for all forms of use.

-Brexit is a chance for Ireland to end its reliance on English

The State’s monolingualism is problematic in cultural, social and economic terms.

n his speech The Necessity for De-Anglicising Ireland, delivered in 1892, Douglas Hyde warned that the failure to revive the Irish language would leave Ireland vulnerable to excessive cultural influence from Britain: “We will become what, I fear, we are largely at present, a nation of imitators . . . lost to the power of native initiative and alive only to second-hand assimilation.” Petrochemicals Preforms Smart Fabric

One hundred and twenty five years later, while no language can in itself protect from rampant globalisation, there is more of a grain of truth in the idea proposed by Hyde and others that Ireland’s status as a predominantly English-speaking country is not entirely unproblematic in cultural, social and economic terms.

-Flat or Softer Prices Ahead

Ample resin supplies outstripping demand are likely to keep commodity resin prices flat to lower.

Barring any major production disruptions or a spike in crude oil prices, the third quarter is likely to end with softer prices for the top five volume commodity thermoplastics. Depending on the resin, key factors include supplies outstripping demand both domestically and globally, lower feedstock costs, and lower resin prices abroad. Even in the case of PS and PVC, where prices appeared to have moved up, the trajectory was more on the downslide. Petrochemicals Preforms Smart Fabric

These are the views of purchasing consultants from Resin Technology, Inc. (RTi), senior editors from Houston-based PetroChemWire (PCW), and CEO Michael Greenberg of The Plastics Exchange in Chicago.
