6th SCAPET

South/Central America & Caribbean PET Markets, Applications & Recycling

12-13 Jun, 2018 - Cartagena, COLOMBIA

InterContinental Cartagena de Indias


“Towards Next PET Packaging Innovations & Recycling Initiatives”

"El futuro hacia las iniciativas de reciclaje e innovaciones
de envasado de PET"

South America is an important emerging market with domestic demand for PET growing at around 5%. Today’s per capita consumption of PET is comparatively low at 2.8 kg and has great potential for growth. M&G’s bankruptcy has caused temporary market disruption as well as opportunities to major players through acquisitions of its assets to provide in-roads into North and South America! Are mergers & acquisitions driving new growth?

“Far Eastern New Century Corporation has successfully bid around $33.5 million for a PET plant in West Virginia and a research center in Ohio in the U.S. formerly owned by M&G Polymers USA LLC in Apple Grove”. 
www.ccfgroup.com, 1/2/18

“Alpek obtained approval from CADE for the acquisition of  PetroquímicaSuape and Citepe” 
www.4-traders.com, 7/2/2018

“Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited (IVL) has announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire M&G Polimeros Brazil S.A. in Ipojuca, Brazil”.  www.nonwovens-industry.com, 19/3/18

“Thailand-based Indorama Ventures, along with Far Eastern Investment and Alpek, has formed a joint venture (JV) firm to acquire M&G integrated PTA/PET assets for over $1.1bn. The new JV company Corpus Christi Polymers (CC Polymers) will acquire integrated PTA/PET plant currently under construction in Texas.” 
www.pet-packaging-business-reviews.com, 22/3/18

With the new acquisitions, will more new grades be offered to the South and Central America (SCA) markets? With growing affluence and changing lifestyle, demand for on-the-go food and smaller packaging are driving PET packaging innovations. Hear from leading converters and brand-owners what is the new packaging trends in the new 5 years.

Sustainable packaging is a megatrend sweeping the world over. There is mounting pressure on brand owners and retailers to reduce the environmental impact of their packaging, including light-weighting, increased used of recycled plastics or bioplastics. Find out from local brand-owners what is their sustainable packaging strategy towards a circular economy and how RPET is contributing to their packaging commitment and what are the potential alternatives to PET?  Increasingly more PET recycling facilities are being set up in SCA  to meet  the growing demand of brand-owners like Coca-Cola, Villavicencio in Argentina, Postobon in Colombia and RainForest in Costa Rica!

Brazil’s Braskem Plans Sugar Based MEG Production

Posted on : 16 Mar, 2018

 
Braskem, Americas’ largest producer of thermoplastic resins, estimates that global demand for monoethylene glycol (MEG) – a key ingredient in PET production – will be between 25 to 30 million tonnes per year, with 85% going into PET production.

Meanwhile as companies are more keen on sustainable solutions, some buyers are looking at biobased or green plastics to achieve carbon emission targets. As such the demand for green plastics is expected to manifold in the coming years. 

Braskem – that already has a plant in Brazil that produces green plastic from sugar cane, is now planning to venture into sugar based MEG production. The company has collaborated with Denmark’s Haldor Topsoe to experiment the use of sugar to produce MEG. 

Already there are few instances where MEG is produced from renewable sources such as ethanol. Braskem is confident that its research could reach better industrial yields to produce MEG from sugar compared to ethanol.

The pilot project to test the use of sugar to produce MEG will be located in Denmark – which is expected to start operations in 2019.

Braskem wants to keep a flexible system in the pilot. Initially cane sugar will be used, but they are also open to using other sources such as beet sugar or even second generation sugar, made from biomass.

Based on the pilot project and financial feasibility, Braskem expects to build a large sugar based MEG plant by 2020 or 2021.

More about green plastics, PET and MEG production at CMT’s 6th SCAPET on 12-13 June in Cartagena, Colombia.
