NovaPET and M&G to Share Innovations in PET Resins at 11th CEEPET.

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

The 11th CEEPET conference meeting in Istanbul-Turkey on 7-8 June 2010 will see PET resins experts share their latest achievements in Barrier Resins and Glass-like resins for Novel applications.

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).

Coca Cola to share details on their Plant PET bottle at 11th CEEPET conference in Istanbul!

Published on March 26, 2010 by in CEEPET, PET News

Coca Cola opened a new chapter in the PET bottling industry with the global roll out of their iconic Plant Bottle. Last November, the company made headlines when they touted their plant bottle in Copenhagen, in line with COP 15.

A press release by the company quoted Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO of Coca Cola as saying, “The ‘PlantBottle™’ is a significant development in sustainable packaging innovation.

According to a report in the New York Times, the Coke’s plant bottle replaces the petroleum derived chemical, Mono-Ethylene Glycol with a sugar-cane ethanol derived version. The ethanol is converted through a series of chemical processes into MEG, which is in turn mixed into terephthalic acid to manufacture this innovative new PET plastic.

A life cycle analysis of the Plant Bottle conducted by the Imperial College of London indicated that the process reduces emissions by up to 25% compared with petroleum-based PET. The Plant bottle can also be processed through existing recycling facilities without contaminating traditional PET.

A senior executive from the Coca Cola Company will be speaking on the topic, “Coca-Cola’s Plant PET Development” at the 11th CEEPET conference, which is meeting in Istanbul on 7-8 June 2010. The 11th CEEPET conference will showcase latest trends, technologies and developments that have a direct impact on the European PET markets, with insights covering:

  • Evolution of EU PET scene and market consolidation
  • Raw material trends with new Middle East capacities
  • Impact of EU legislation on RPET in food contact
  • Recycling at a sustainable level

The conference is slated to attract participation from Feedstock suppliers (PX/PTA/MEG), PET resin producers & suppliers, Polyester manufacturers, Polymer/Petrochemical traders, Converters & preform manufacturers, Technology providers, Recycling companies, Bottlers/fillers, Brand owners and more.
