"Japan's Innovative Force Drives Next
Applications & Tech for PET"

Japan’s flexible and rigid plastics packaging boom is accelerating rapidly with PET packaging showing the strongest and fastest growth. Given the high propensity for consumer packaged products the average citizen places a lot of importance on quality packaging and presentation of products. This further drives the incentive for more innovative PET plastic pack formats.

 

Japan possesses one of the world’s most exemplary PET recycling systems, with take-back machines and an abundance of collection containers provided at public places/supermarkets 
It has one of the world’s highest PET bottle collection ratio of almost 90% as compared to other developed countries.

 

This is partly because recycling gets government support by means of appropriate regulations and consumer education. Hence many PET recycling projects have sprouted up in Japan recently with many firm conviction going towards food grade recyclates.
How soon will there be approval for 100% use of recycled foodgrade PET in Japan? 

 

What technologies are available to push Japanese recycling capabilities to the next level? 

 

Major retailers like 7 & I Holdings are doing their part to save the environment and in Feb last year, Automatic PET bottle collection machines have been
installed at 142 stores as an initiative for recycling together with customers. 

 

At the end of the Feb last year 3,746 tons of PET bottles were collected through this system, and recycled as well as PET bottles and other items.

 

Because of its effective waste recovery stream, many household care and personal products have made the switch for PET and at the same time ramping up the use of R-PET in a range of applications that not only match consumers’ high-quality expectations, but carry a powerful environmental statement. 

How can the PET industry capitalize on the opportunities in this innovative and fast changing economy where there is an obsession for consuming well presented, beautifully designed packaged products?

 

Attend CMT’s 2nd JPET and learn from key authoritative speakers where the  market is leading to, and what rPET projects are planned for and where are the high end , emerging applications for PET film.

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

Posted on : 10 Mar, 2016

 

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 brands.

 

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.

Seven & i Holdings Promotes Recycled PET across Stores in Japan

Posted on : 22 Jan, 2016

 

Seven & i Holdings has started to promote green packaging materials across its stores in Japan. Last year, it introduced recyclable trays in Ito-Yokado – its Japanese general merchandise store. Approximately 500 types of recyclable tray were introduced that marked an increase of 6% year on year by weight. This resulted in a CO2 emissions reduction of about 2,699 tons. The stores also use bioplastic containers to sell cut fruits and boxed lunches.

 

Moreover, the original ‘Salad Cup Container’ (sold in the chilled cases of Seven-Eleven Japan stores) were also replaced with recycled or biomass PET containers. The complete replacement is expected to be completed by end February, 2016.

 

It also installed automatic PET bottle recovery machines across Ito-Yokado, York Benimaru, and York-Mart. People can insert the PET bottles into the automatic recovery machines in the stores and they are then automatically cleansed of foreign matter and compressed/ crushed. This enables rPET manufacturers to obtain high-quality PET bottle chips. Moreover, it also helps to reduce transportation costs as the volume of crushed/compressed PET is much lesser.

 

The company also plans to use the collected recycled PET bottles and use them in packaging for Seven Premium private brand products.

 

7 & I Holdings will present its CSR initiatives and approach to sustainability at CMT’s 2nd JPET (Japan PET Resin Trade, Applications & Recycling) Summit on 16-17 March, 2016 in Tokyo.

Mitsubishi Plastics to Supply Plastic Bottles to Kirin for Beer Packaging

Posted on : 30 Nov, 2015

 

Japan’s Mitsubishi Plastics Inc. will supply 1 liter plastic bottles to Kirin Co. – Japan’s major brewery.

 

Wines and sakes in Japan were available in plastic bottles since 2010. But this is the first time a major brewery is using these bottles for beers.

 

Use of plastic bottles is rare for beers as there is high chance of permeation of gases including oxygen and carbon into the content, which can alter the taste of beer.

 

Mitsubishi Plastics has used a coating inside the bottles – a thin carbon film that makes them 10 times better at preventing the loss of oxygen, thus preventing deterioration of beers.

 

However, beer in plastic bottles will not be available in Japan’s supermarket shelves anytime soon.

 

Kirin plans to use the plastic bottles for a special beer delivery service. The bottles will be sealed inside a package during distribution to avoid sunlight induced changes to its taste.

 

Mitsubishi Plastics is also planning to produce bottles for small-sized craft beer makers and local brewers. However, the company has to come up with ways to shield the bottles from sunlight before they can be used more widely.

 

More on PET bottles for alcohol will be discussed at 2nd JPET (Japan PET Resin Trade, Fibers, Applications & Recycling/RPET) on 16-17 March, 2016 in Tokyo.
