Los avances en conversiones y aplicaciones PET serán el foco de atención de la4ª edición de SCAPET que se celebrará en Bogotá

 

La 4ª edición del congreso SCAPET (Mercados, Aplicaciones y Reciclaje PET en América del Sur y Central, en la zona andina y en el Caribe) se celebrará este año en Bogotá, Colombia, entre el 2 y el 4 de junio y ofrecerá un panorama completo de la demanda PET que hay actualmente en América Central y del Sur, tanto en los sectores del embotellado como en el del poliéster.

 

El congreso de este año buscará valorar la demanda y las capacidades, el desarrollo en el ámbito del reciclaje y las nuevas tendencias en empaquetado PET sostenible en mercados clave de Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba y Ecuador dentro de un contexto de una caída en los precios del PET y del petróleo.

 

Las personas que acudan obtendrán una visión general de cuáles son las tendencias que tienen más posibilidades de llegar a influir en el mercado PET en América Latina y en el Caribe, una perspectiva global del mercado PET y también detalles de la evaluación de la materia prima dentro de la cadena de valor del poliéster. Los principales expertos en la industria PET de Ravago Américas, PCI Ltd (Empaquetado, Resinas y Reciclaje PET) y Nexant Inc. dirigirán algunas de las principales discusiones.

 

Para añadir algo de sabor local estarán presentes empresas como Grupo Mix Latinoamericano S. A., que compartirá con los asistentes una perspectiva clave en el conocimiento de la demanda PET existente en Costa Rica y América Central, mientras que Aproplast S.A.S., con base en Colombia, presentará un panorama general bajo el título "De la Fibra de Poliéster al Reciclaje B2B", dando diversos detalles sobre las estrategias, retos y visión del mercado existente para los PET reciclados en este ámbito.

 

Además, se presentará un panel de discusión con el título "Virgen vs. Reciclado (¿cómo se pueden aumentar los beneficios a través de la sostenibilidad?)", que será presidido por ejecutivos senior de Ravago Américas, M&G Polimeri Italia S.P.A. y Starlinger & Co. GmbH.
Las sesiones principales hablarán de las últimas tecnologías en relación con el empaquetado PET, el reciclaje PET y las resinas PET, en las que participarán líderes de la industria tales como Starlinger & Co. GmbH, Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd, Frigel Firenze S.P.A., M&G Polimeri Italia S.P.A, y Netstal-Maschinen Ag.

 

Para mejorar la participación, los asistentes pueden optar por apuntarse para acudir a una visita a las instalaciones de reciclaje de Aproplast, que está programada para el día 2 de junio y también pueden apuntarse a un taller posterior al congreso titulado "Avances en el reciclaje PET" que cubrirá el reciclaje "tipo botella a botella" y el reciclaje de envases termoformados. El taller estará dirigido por Kelvin Davies, Jefe de Proyectos (Australasia) de Nextek.

Demand for Personalisation shaping PET Packaging Industry

Posted on : 05 May, 2015

 

PET packaging market is trending towards personalisation, particularly in the beverages industry where brands are looking at ways of using packaging material that can help create that 'personal' experience.

 

One such popular trend and fastest growing segments is the increasing demand for shrink sleeve labelling. Shrink sleeve, given that it covers a full bottle, offers brands more space to communicate with the consumer. Further such labeling has no restrictions on container shape as the film adapts to any surface. Its highly customisable shape and size leave more room for innovative and eye catchy label layouts.

 

Further, brands are willing to catch the constantly changing demand with seasonal variations and limited edition drinks like customising packaging of beverages for a sporting event. This has led to the need for small batch sizes, flexible print runs, and multipurpose production lines.

 

Personalisation of packaging calls for more flexibility in terms of labelling a variety of beverage types and bottle formats. It also demands faster product and format changeovers, simple operations and optimised processes. On the other hand, brand owners as well as consumers are placing a lot of importance on sustainability while choosing beverages. This requires producers to minimise environmental impact while maximising efficiency, decreasing costs and ensuring reliable performance.

 

Packaging formats like thinner labels and less glue are considered sustainable as they simplify recycling processes, reduce maintenance and increase machine efficiency.

 

More on PET packaging trends will be discussed at 4th SCAPET (South/Central Americas, Andean & Caribbean PET Markets, Applications & Recycling) on 2-4 June, 2015 in Bogota.

 

Contact Ms. Hafizah at hafizah@cmtsp.com.sg or call +65 6346 9218 for details of the conference.

SAB Miller hopeful of introducing beer in PET bottles in next five years

Posted on : 07 Apr, 2015

 

Since September 2012, beer maker SAB Miller has engaged with Trinity College Dublin to pursue research on a new type of PET bottle that can increase the shelf life of beer and keep it 'fresh'. Although the technology is being developed, the brewer believes commercialization will take another five years.

 

Further, the brewer has also roped in CRANN - a nanoscience institute at the university to develop a new nanomaterial. The nanomaterial can stop oxygen ingress and the escape of CO2 which can prolong the shelf life of beer in plastic bottles.

 

When this nanomaterial is added to plastic bottles, it makes them more impervious. This also aids in cost saving in terms of quantity of material required for manufacturing, and reduces the environmental impact of PET bottles.

 

PET bottles for beer has been well received by customers due to its ease of use, lightweight and reclosable.

 

More on PET bottling market will be discussed at 4th SCAPET (South/Central Americas, Andean & Caribbean PET Markets, Applications & Recycling) on 2-4 June, 2015 in Bogota.
