AIMPLAS and Barpimo Developing Resins from Multilayer PET film waste

Published on April 4, 2016 by in PET News

AIMPLAS, a Spanish plastics research firm, along with Barpimo, a varnish and paint company, are working to develop thermosetting resins from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) waste.

The project involves transforming multilayer PET films into high value-added products such as enamels, resins, and materials for the building sector.

Named RESIPET, the project is co-funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the FEDER funds within the National Programme for Research.

Through this project, AIMPLAS and Barpimo aim to develop an economically viable process that allows these waste to be transformed into thermosetting resins at an industrial level, with a minimum environmental impact.

Two types of products are expected to be developed with this project – one is alkyd resins – that helps in the manufacturing of enamels and coatings for metal and wood. The other is polyester resins – used across buildings, transport, pipes and reinforced composites with glass fibre.

At 17th GEPET (Greater Europe PET Resin Trade, Applications & Recycling) on 9-10 May, 2016 in Venice, Saulo Franco, Director R &D Resins at Barpimo and Eva Verdejo, Head of the sustainability and industrial recovery department at AIMPLAS will share more details of the project.

Japan’s Suntory plans to develop 100% bio-bottles

Published on March 10, 2016 by in PET News

Japan’s well-known beverages company – Suntory plans to develop beverages bottles that are made of 100% bio-based plastics.

The new endeavor is part of its ongoing partnership with Anellotech – a renewable chemical company – that began in 2012. The next phase of the partnership is focused on advancing the development and commercialization of cost-competitive 100% bio-based plastics for use in beverage bottles. Suntory, currently, uses 30% plant-derived materials for its Mineral Water – Suntory Tennensui bran

As part of the alliance, Anellotech will pursue the development of bio-aromatics including bio-paraxylene, a key component to produce 100% bio-based PET for beverage bottles.

Anellotech’s Bio-TCat™ proprietary thermal catalytic biomass conversion technology cost-competitively produces “drop in” green aromatics, including paraxylene and benzene, from non-food biomass. Expected to be operational in 2016, a fully integrated TCat-8 development and testing facility will confirm the viability and suitability of the Bio-TCat process for use in commercial plants.

Hiroyuki Iwai, Packaging Materials Manager of Suntory Business Expert is a key speaker at CMT’s 2nd JPET (Japan PET Resin Trade, Applications & Recycling) Summit on 16-17 March, 2016 in Tokyo.

South America’s Água Mineral Santa Joana Starts Using New Lightweight PET Bottles from KHS

Published on March 10, 2016 by in PET News

Water bottler Água Mineral Santa Joana has started to use new lightweight PET bottles manufactured by Germany’s KHS.

The new KHS 0.5-liter PET bottles weighs only 8.9 grams and 1.5-liter PET containers at 22 grams compared to the usual 13 grams (0.5-liter) and 26 grams (a 1.5-liter).

The new bottles not only saves material costs but also leads to energy savings. Água Mineral Santa Joana that produces up to 27,000 of 0.5-liter and up to 26,400 of 1.5-liter PET bottles per hour can significantly benefit from this transition.

Since material use account for 70% of the manufacturing costs for beverage producers, the use of lightweight PET can significantly reduce production costs.

For instance, if a manufacturer reduces four grams in the packaging weight when producing 300 million 1.5-liter PET bottles annually, it can save as much as €1.8 million – €450,000 per year for each gram saved.

The lightweight PET bottles are already available in Brazil.

3rd SAPET (South America PET Markets, Applications & Recycling), in Buenos Aires will discuss more about lightweight PET bottles.
