-Beverage giants to help scale up world’s first enzyme-based plastics recycling technology

Soft drinks giants PepsiCo, Nestle Waters and Lucozade Ribena Suntory’s (LRS) parent brand Suntory Beverage & Food Europe have thrown their support behind a new plastics recycling technology which uses enzymes to process waste.

The beverage firms have joined L’Oreal in pledging to support bringing Carbios’ technology to scale

The beverage firms have joined L’Oreal in pledging to support bringing Carbios’ technology to scale

Developed by French green chemistry firm Carbios, the method involves applying a liquid mixture of enzymes to used PET plastics and polyester fibres. Through a reaction similar to digestion, the enzymes break the polymers down into monomers – single-element particles which are then sent through a filtration and purification system.

The resulting materials are of “equivalent quality” to virgin PET, according to Carbios, making them ready for reuse in new plastic packaging such as drinks bottles. Carbios claims that the approach can be used for all forms of PET – regardless of colour, opacity or the number of plastic layers in the product – and that it requires “limited” heat and no pressure or solvents to complete.

-New  family of polymers can be easily recycled and even upcycled

A team at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, US, has developed a new family of polymers that brings us closer to the dream of closed-loop, zero-waste plastics. To achieve this they used a family of molecules called polydiketoenamines, held together by dynamic covalent bonds that, while very strong, can be easily broken down using small amounts of acid.

Diketoenamines were pretty much unknown in polymer chemistry until now. Lead author Brett Helms explains that ‘this motif had been known as a protecting group in solid state peptide chemistry, but often classified as “promiscuous” as it bounced around different amine groups during peptide synthesis.

-Crude oil falls after President Donald Trump urges greater OPEC output to replace Iranian oilWorld News

Traders said the market was shifting its focus on the voluntary supply cuts led by the Middle East dominated producer club OPEC since the start of the year.

Singapore: Oil prices fell on Monday, extending a slump from Friday that ended weeks of rallying, after President Donald Trump demanded that producer club OPEC raise output to soften the impact of U.S. sanctions against Iran.

Brent crude futures were at $71.80 per barrel at 0215 GMT, down 35 cents, or 0.5 percent, from their last close.

-SOCAR and BP to commence plant construction in Turkey by end of 2020

The State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR), and British Petroleum intend to commence construction of a petrochemical plant in Turkey by the end of next year.

Last year, the two companies signed a heads of agreement (HoA) to analyse the establishment of a joint venture to construct and operate a petrochemicals complex in Turkey.

-Middle East PP to remain stable as key sellers eye rollovers

Polypropylene (PP) prices in the Middle East are likely to emerge at a rollover when offers are announced later this week despite the continued tightness in supply.

Prices for all PP homopolymer and copolymer grades are set to remain stable from April levels, as market players in the region prepare for the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan which begins in early May.

On 26 April, ICIS assessed PP raffia/injection prices in the GCC at $1,160-1,200/tonne DEL (delivered) GCC, stable from the previous week.

Prices for the same grades in the East Med were assessed at $1,110-1,190/tonne CFR (cost and freight) East Med, also unchanged from the week before, ICIS data showed.

-Amcor launches recyclable, metal-free barrier flexible packaging

AmLite Ultra Recyclable is the latest addition to Amcor’s successful AmLite product line, first created in 2015 to provide metal-free barrier packaging that significantly reduces the packaging’s carbon footprint, according to news from Amcor (Zürich, Switzerland). AmLite Ultra Recyclable is Amcor’s first packaging product made from the company’s sustainable high-barrier polyolefin film introduced last year.

The high-barrier laminate can package a range of food, home and personal care, and pharmaceutical products, and can be recycled in existing polyolefin recycling streams, said Amcor.
