Demand of Virgin versus rPET material affected by the rise in awareness of recycling...

The focus on marine litter and circular economy goals across the world will further intensify market pressures, as increased volumes of recycled PET resin and fibre erode demand for virgin product. The rapid fibre market growth over 2017-2018 absorbed a potential capacity surplus, but growth has already declined significantly this year. The escalating US/China trade war, risk of conflict in the Middle East, and various other global political and economic issues make it seem impossible for demand growth to absorb the new supply.

   

Find out on Nov 20-21st at the 17th Annual LAPET Polyester & Recycling Mexico - IF a shakeout of capacity at various stages in the PX to PET value chain is inevitable?

     

Outlook for Mexico as Recycling Hub – Strengthen perception of PET with current global status on plastics…

Mexico's packaging market is growing with 75% of all finished products in the country requiring packaging, of these, 90% are in the food and drinks category. This is good news for the PET and rPET packaging companies. The country's PET recycling capacities are also growing as majors and recycling processors this year, are expanding their PET recycling facilities in Guadalajara, Monterrey and Chihuahua – where used PET bottles collected from landfill and collection centres are being recycled into PET flakes.

   

With consumers becoming more conscious about plastic usage & sustainability there is an increasing focus on PET recycling. Although collection and sorting infrastructure is still a major concern, Mexico's ECOCE is promoting better collection of PET wastes. The APR Design Guide for Plastics Recyclability (APR Design) is the most complete and easy-to-use resource that describes the recommendations of the plastics recycling industry in the market today. A new material [PLA] is now added to APR. Find out more about this at ECOCE's session at the 17th LAPET.

   

Brand owners are also invested in creating a circular economy in Latin America – as shown by PepsiCo's recycling program – ‘Recycling with Purpose' is expected to be operational in 10 Latin American countries by 2021 – that includes Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Guatemala and Jamaica. The program aims to collect 6,000 tonnes of recyclable materials per year across Latin America.

   

How are global and regional brand owners meeting their circular economy targets in the LATAM region? How can recycling rates be improved? What is the impact of recycling on the virgin materials? What are the major hurdles in collection and sorting of PET waste? How are global economic conditions affecting PET and rPET markets in LATAM? What is the best feasible way to mechanically recycle and in coming years via chemical recycling ? How much the market will shift again with the opening of the mammoth Corpus Christie project by next year…

Peru adopts PepsiCo’s plastics recycling program, introduces Ecoins

Posted on : 06 Aug, 2019

 
PepsiCo’s recycling program – ‘Recycling with Purpose’ is expected to be operational in 10 Latin American countries by 2021 – that includes Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Guatemala and Jamaica. The program aims to collect 6,000 tonnes of recyclable materials per year across Latin America.
 
PepsiCo has partnered with Ecoins for an initiative that was founded in Costa Rica with the aims to increase the collection of PET materials. The program allows consumers to exchange their plastic materials for Ecoins, a virtual currency, which they can then use to earn discounts on a variety of products and services.
 
Peru has become the first country to implement this recycling program earlier this year where Ecoins was rolled out.
 
PepsiCo estimates to reach 300,000 accounts and provide recycling awareness to nearly one million people in LATAM in the first year of operation. Apart from ecoins, the Ciudad Saludable grant is expected to allow at least 1,000 recyclers to be integrated into the circular economy model by 2021.
 
PepsiCo aims to transform 100 percent of its packaging to be recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025, increase recycled materials in plastic packaging, reduce the packaging’s carbon impact, and increase recycling rates with the PepsiCo Foundation and partners.
 
Steve Gibson, Head R&D Mexico & LATAM  PepsiCo is a lead speaker at the upcoming 17th LAPET, Polyester & Recycling Summit on 20-21 November, 2019 in Mexico City. Find out more about PepsiCo’s recycling initiatives in this summit.
