Coca-Cola Announces 100% Cane Resin Bottles by 2020

Published on May 5, 2010 by in CEEPET, PET News

Following the latest blog update on Coca-Cola, the Technical and Logistics VP; Mr Rino Abbondi announced ambitious goals to replace existing PET bottles with that made of resin 100% derived from sugarcane by 2020. Current efforts on the “PlantBottle” uses 30% ethanol derived from sugarcane as its raw materials.

More importantly, Coca-Cola’s “PlantBottle” will not see a change in chemical makeup, color, weight or appearance of conventional PET bottles yet the new bottle remains 100% recyclable. Plus, this will reduce the company’s dependence on non-renewable resources. Another positive feature of the green bottle is that its production generates a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions when compared to producing the same number of bottles from fossil fuels.

Coca-cola expects that the production of “PlantBottle” in 2010 alone will lead to a reduction in the use of oil – of more than five thousand barrels. Further, projections to incorporate the increase from 30% – 100% as intended by Coca-Cola would mean that the amount of ethanol would rise to 227,000 litres for every 10 million bottles. Read full article here.

11th CEE PET & Balkans Markets will have a segment targeted towards ‘Biodegradeable PET & Bio Plastics’. Coca-Cola will kick off the morning discussions with the revolutionary “PlantBottle” followed by a strategic discussion on promoting the use of bioplastics packaging into the mainstream market. Led by the Chairman of European Bioplastics, Dr. Harald Kaeb will present a paper on how the PET industry can prepare for this challenge.

In all, the 11th CEE PET & Balkans Markets will commence with a global and regional overview of the PET markets for resin, fibre and film, highlight technological breakthroughs and novel innovations plus latest RPET developments. The two-day event closes with an exclusive site tour to SETA’s PET Recycling Plant; one of the biggest independent PET bottle recycling establishments in Turkey.

Find out more about Coca-Cola Brazil’s PET Optimization Plans & Iconic Plant Bottle at SAPET…

Published on April 21, 2010 by in PET News, SAPET

The inaugural SAPET conference is packed with influential PET experts from the region, including key brand owners. Among them is Coca Cola who will be speaking about their PlantBottle™Development and PET Optimization.

Coca Cola’s PlantBottle™opened a new chapter in the PET packaging industry by using 30%sugar-cane-based materials.A life-cycle analysis conducted by Imperial College London indicates the “PlantBottle™” reduces carbon emissions by up to 25 %, compared with petroleum-based PET. Another advantage of “PlantBottle™” is that it can be processed through existing manufacturing and recycling facilities without contaminating traditional PET.

Coca Cola’s session at SAPET will also look into PET Optimization in Brazil and Mercosur region. PET Planet (Vol. 11) reports that Coca Cola’s PET optimization plan was implemented in Brazil in 2008, and is currently being rolled out in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.

The program, led by the Brazil packaging team, is part of a supply-chain efficiency program based on standard preform families developed in collaboration with Husky (*SAPET speaker), and preform suppliers Amcor, Alpla, Cristalpet (*SAPET speaker) and Engepack. Objectives include achieving lightweighting for all bottle families; accelerated approval process through standardisation; cost reduction through supply chain and preform conversion efficiency; and reduction in environmental impact.

Other Brand Owners presenting at SAPET include Ouro Fino, Cargill and Danone. >>Explore the full conference agenda here<<

In fact, participants at the conference can expect to hear from Italian PET Resins Specialist M&G, who is now marketing their innovative new barrier resin Polyprotect™at the beer-packaging sector. According to a recent report in European Plastics News, a brewer in Central Europe who used PoliProtect™enjoyed 36% total chain cost savings for 500ml bottles due to lower freight costs, easier warehousing of smaller plastic performs, and no breakage during bottling and shipping. A Senior Representative of M&G will also provide details on M&G’s technology breakthroughs in monolayer barrier PET resin, the O2 scavenger integrated into the resin.

11th CEEPET participants will also get to know more about NOVAPET GLASSTAR™, NovaPET’s innovative new PET resin which, according to the company’s release, offers the ‘consistency, thickness, gloss and transparency of glass, and the benefits of PET’. This innovative resin, pitched as “PET for Premium Products”, promises the appearance of glass, a consistency that allows closure crown corks, easy integration into existing packaging lines, high recyclability and more.

NovaPET’s Marco Leonardi’s session, “High Performance PET Grades for Novel Packaging Markets” will see him offer insights on NOVAPET GLASSTAR’s™ application in long shelf life Dairy Products and other premium products looking for the ‘glass appeal’ in packaging. He will also share NovaPET’s innovative resins designed to meet light weighting challenges, and high-temperature resistance for oven use (Crystalline PET).
