"What does a Circular Economy mean for the PET industry?"

Chile is on course to introduce a new recycling laws for six priority products (packaging, tyres, batteries, lubricating oils, electrical and electronic items), which obligates the producers to take care of the waste these goods cause. How will this law be implemented and what are the plans in place to establish "an appropriate infrastructure for the separation and subsequent safe disposal or reuse of recyclable materials”. What is the impact on brand-owners & converters of packaging products?

In line with the circular economy, businesses around the world are trying to reduce, reuse and recycle in order to eliminate the amount of plastic packaging sent to landfills. For example, Unilever announced that, by 2025, all their plastic packaging will be reusable, recyclable or compostable, and 25% of it will come from recycled plastic content. In PepsiCo Latin America Beverages (LAB), 92.9 percent of the materials used are recyclable. By 2025, 100 percent of its packaging will be recyclable.

With the ambitious target from brand-owners for recycled content in their products, are there enough rPET in the market and at what price? How will the  virgin PET market perform? It is noted that some PET producers are integrating into the mechanical recycling area while some are exploring the chemical recycling route, how will this trend disrupt the dynamics of the PET industry?

Petainer starts one-way PET kegs production in Brazil

Posted on : 21 Dec, 2018

 
Plastic packaging manufacturer Petainer and BLUE PET (its Brazilian partner) have begun manufacturing one-way PET kegs at its new blow moulding plant in Brazil. Located in Tijucas, Santa Catarina, in the South of Brazil, the new facility has a production line for petainerKegs that will cater to customers in Brazil as well as other South American countries.
 
One-way kegs have become increasingly popular among South American breweries as they are used only once and can be fully recycled while also reducing costly and complex return logistics and washing processes. One-way kegs also provide enhanced product protection as it ensures that the beer is as good as the day it was brewed for over nine months. In addition, the facility in Brazil will help reduce supply costs to local South American breweries.
 
Currently, 30L petainerKeg Classic are being manufactured in the new plant with plans to produce more from the portfolio.
 
Petainer kegs were launched in Brazil about 1 and a half years ago and the market has quickly embraced one-way kegs enabling the company to establish a full in-country manufacturing line of its kegs.
