"Transitioning towards a Circular Economy for PET  - Where does the industry stand and
how are supply chains transforming ?"

 

Changing global PET economics as Asia’s upstream expansions generate
more competitive supply to EU market

 

Asian expansion of PX will be a major driver of change and will affect the European market.

 

As  Chinese exports become more competitive , will we see a big wave of supplies hitting the market ? and how will this change global PET economics ?

 

The PET industry supply chain is rapidly transforming as every stake holder adapts to fulfill its role and responsibility as a sustainable producer.

 

Brandowners & beverage producers are supporting the increase in use of recycled materials,  demanding integrated solutions from preform manufacturing to PET recycling.

 

Recent breakthroughs in preform production from flakes to bottle are blurring the boundaries between converters and recyclers , as now even recyclers can become preform producers.

 

How will converters cope in this  tough competition and low margins  ?

 

Virgin resin manufacturers are increasingly investing in recycling operations & technologies globally to meet the demand of brandowners.

 

DAK’s recent announcement of purchasing Perpetual recycling comes shortly after Indorama announced its purchase of plastics recycling company Custom Polymers PET.

 

Is increasing the recycling percentage in PET bottles the key to sustainable development ?

 

CMT celebrates its 20th GEPET & Recycling conference this year in Madrid with crucial updates on PET market developments, breakthroughs in PET recycling technologies, 100% rPET innovations and many more.

EU’s ban on single-use plastic and increasing PET recycling

Posted on : 03 Dec, 2018

 
The European Parliament has approved a complete ban on a range of single-use plastic products such as plates, cutlery and balloon sticks with readily available, non-plastic alternatives by 2021. 
 
These single-use plastics that are banned by EU cover almost 70 percent of marine litter, according to the European Commission.
 
The legislation also calls for a reduction in single-use plastics for food and drink containers like plastic cups as well as plastic items that do not have a non-plastic alternative. The new rules require EU member states to reduce such items by at least 25% by 2025.
 
This is expected to impact the food service and retail sector that use plastics packaging such as single-use burger boxes, sandwich boxes and food containers for fruits, vegetables, desserts or ice creams. Drinks bottles mostly made of PET would have to be collected separately and recycled at a rate of 90% by 2025 under the proposed legislation. The average recycling rate for PET drinks bottles across Europe at the moment is 57%, although this varies significantly by country.
 
There is an urgent need for governments across the globe to work together with brands, retailers and industry to identify and implement the most effective solutions to reduce plastics waste ending up in the oceans. The new legislation is a step in this direction.
 
Get up-to-date on the PET recycling, PET packaging market in Europe at CMT’s 20th GEPET & Recycling on 8-9 May, 2019 in Madrid.
