-EU chems welcomes FTA with Mercosur despite concerns over duty-free ethanol

EU chemicals trade group Cefic has welcomed the free trade agreement (FTA) between the EU and Latin America’s Mercosur, which is expected to fully remove duties for 90% of the EU’s chemicals exports to the five-country bloc.

Sugar cane used for production of biofuel ethanolThe bid to ease trading between the two markets will have the most prevalent effect on the ethanol market, which will have the most drastic liberalisation on import tariffs.

Mercosur is a trading bloc comprising Latin America’s largest economy Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Venezuela is a full member but has been suspended since 2016.

“This is very welcome for the development of bio-based chemistry in Europe.”

-Follow the circle to sustainability

A linear resource model of ‘use and discard’ won’t work. It’s time to move towards a circular economy, says V Rishi Kumar

The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything — Albert Einstein

We are the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we are the last generation that can do something about it — Jay Inslee.

Imagine this: By 2050, the world’s population will touch 9.7 billion and the per capita resource need will be up by 71 per cent.

-EU requires carmakers to add fake engine noise to electric cars

Pedestrians can struggle to hear them coming

Electric vehicles have been hailed as part of the answer to the climate crisis, but for some people they represent a new danger.

Pedestrians can struggle to hear quiet electric and hybrid vehicles coming, which presents a particular risk for blind and visually impaired people.

But as of Monday, all new models of electric and hybrid vehicles developed and sold in the European Union must come equipped with an acoustic sound system.

-Baralan: A recyclable and biodegradable biopolymer line requiring no specific injection moulds

The “Eco Baralan” line presented by Baralan at the trade show Édition Spéciale by Luxe Pack, which took place in Paris on June 4th and 5th, could stand as a major breakthrough for the development of more sustainable cosmetic packaging.

The new range, which was presented for the first time on the stand of the Italian company, is made with a biopolymer derived from renewable natural fibres (but from cultures dedicated to the food chain and not originating from Asia, specified the company). According to Baralan, the production process of this new “X-Code” biopolymer is similar to PP and SAN.

-Bioplastics Could Solve a Major Pollution Problem

Advanced solvents and enzymes are transforming woody wastes into better biodegradable plastics

Our civilization is built on plastics. In 2014 alone, industry generated 311 metric tons, an amount expected to triple by 2050, according to the World Economic Forum. Yet less than 15 percent of it gets recycled. Much of the rest is incinerated, sits in landfills or is abandoned in the environment—where, being resistant to microbial digestion, it can persist for hundreds of years. Plastic debris accumulating in the ocean causes all kinds of problems, from killing wildlife when mistakenly ingested to releasing toxic compounds. It can even enter our bodies via contaminated fish.

-Resetting the Ambition for Biotechnology in the EU

As the new European Parliament meets for its inaugural session in Strasbourg, Belgium, EuropaBio has published its Biotechnology Industry Manifesto 2019. The manifesto calls upon EU decision makers to reset the ambition for a healthier, more resource efficient, technology driven Europe.

Biotechnology is already a transformative EU asset, says EuropaBio, significantly addressing unmet medical needs, enabling smarter, more efficient use of natural resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the quantity and quality of food and feed. But huge potential remains untapped for delivering new and innovative solutions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
