18th GEPET

Greater Europe PET Resin Trade, Applications & Recycling

27-28 Apr, 2017 - Barcelona

Renaissance Barcelona Hotel

About Event

“PET players adapting to market challenges with new innovations”

“Optimising packaging structures in sync with the Circular Economy”

PET & feedstock prices have been on the upward trend driven by shortage in supply.  Paraxylene is now fetching Euro 817 tonne, a increase of Euro 57, as one manufacturer in France recently declared force majeure.

 

Generally towards the summer period, demand for PET will increase further fueled by higher demand for bottled water and beverages. Bottlers will need to replenish their stock levels. Sources in the market have commented that PET is currently in short supply and expensive

 

With the rise of virgin PET prices, the gap between rPET and VPET will become smaller at not too long – bringing fresh hopes for PET recycling business.

 

However , quality issues, relating to bales still remain a major area of difficulty and the high price of clean washed flake in relation to virgin PET resin creates financial problems with economics of upgrading the former to Food Grade RPET pellets.

 

The EU circular economy model is becoming more of a reality and it is the brandowners and retailers that are driving this.

 

How are the PET producers transitioning towards the circular economy ?  There needs to be flexibility, innovation, communication and collaboration to build a truly sustainable packaging supply chain.

 

How are PET converters, sheets producers  and thermoform tray producers adapting to this change ?

 

How will renewable resources perform given that crude oil prices are still low ? 

 

Topical issues like these and more will be highlighted at CMT’s 18th Greater Europe PET (GEPET) which will be held this year in Barcelona Spain on the 27-28th of April.

PET Packager LINPAC Launches New Extrusion and Thermoforming line in Spain

Posted on : 18 Jan, 2017

 

European consumers including those in Spain are increasingly preferring PET and rPET packaging given its versatility, lightweight, barrier, food safe properties, as well as recyclability. To tap these growing demand, Europe’s major packager – LINPAC is expanding into Spain with a three-year plan and estimated investment of €14.3 million.

 

As part of this plan, LINPAC is investing in excess of €8m in a new extrusion and thermoforming capacity in Pravia, Spain. The new facility is expected to offer a wide range of lighter, more cost-effective and sustainable PET and rPET products.

 

This is LINPAC’s fourth extrusion line in Pravia. The new line will enable LINPAC to increase its capacity by 25 percent with increase in annual production to 630 million trays – an increase of 80 million.

 

LINPAC further plans to invest €3.8m for 2017 and a further €2.5m in 2018, as part of the 3 year plan.

 

The new project is expected to boost LINPAC’s position in the Iberian region as well as in greater Europe delivering reliable, high quality, rigid and flexible packaging solutions to leading retailers, packers and distributors.

 

More about Europe’s packaging world updates at CMT’s 18th GEPET on 27-28 April, 2017 in Barcelona.
