RATIONALISATION OF EUROPEAN PET INDUSTRY & THE ROAD AHEAD

 

Raw material expansions & increased PET inflow from Asia/ Mideast, Recycling Legislation, Sustainability continues to present challenges to the region's industry

 

Market rationalization in 2008/2009 eliminated a number of producers in the region resulting in reported increase in imports to Europe by 25-28% . Most of the supplies originate from Asian and Middle East countries. This year, demand is expected to be steady but supply will be tighter due to outages and lesser imports. Also the EU has opened up antidumping investigations against some major exporters to Europe.

 

Because of the region's dependence on imported resin, forecasting PET trade flows has become ever more complicated & challenging. Global factors including PET market trends, raw materials, polyester , film markets need to be taken into consideration in understanding the movement of resins into the market.

 

Virgin PET market is losing its share to recycled PET as post consumer recycling of PET containers continues to gain momentum in Europe.With increasing importance on sustainability- how is the PET industry embracing this challenge ?

Coca-Cola announces 100% cane resin bottles by 2020

Posted on : 04 May, 2010

 

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.

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

Posted on : 11 Mar, 2010

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.
