Review PLA hot topic at

Review PLA hot topic at PETnology Forum At the 10th PETnology Forum in Munich, Germany, technical experts and senior managers from the beverage and packaging industry, raw material and machinery suppliers, as well as suppliers of peripheral equipment, caps, colorants and consultants, shared their latest developments and innovations with more than 280 delegates from 33 countries. The number of delegates is a new record for PETnology GmbH of Regensburg, Germany. Recognising the trend towards sustainability and so towards bioplastics, this year‘s PETnology Forum for the second time dedicated a special session to the “Potential and Developments for Renewable Plastics in Packaging“. This session was chaired by Dr. Harald Kaeb, Chairman of European Bioplastics. from left to right: Luc Vervynck, Bernd Merzenich, Brian Glasbrenner, Dr. Harald Kaeb Erwin Vink in PLA Workshop www.petnology.com Harald Kaeb himself opened the session with a presentation on “Market Introduction and Policy Measures in Europe“. In his presentation “Additives to Improve Processing & Properties of PLA“ Luc Vervynck of the ColorMatrix Group Inc. introduced additives to minimise yellowing effects and processing aids such as ColorMatrix Eze TM . The Joule TM reheat additives improve the heat uptake of PLA in the oven of the stretch blow moulding machine. Bernd Merzenich, formerly a consultant for the German drugstore chain “Ihr platz“, shared his positive experience when introducing the “Vitamore“ wellness beverages in PLA bottles with the world‘s first biodegradable cap. NatureWorks‘ Global Director - Bottles, Brian Glasbrenner, talked about „Responsible Packaging and Disposal - from Resin to Recycling“. For him a critical mass is important when trying to understand the economic sustainability of recycling a new polymer. Therefore retailers, brand owners and other stakeholders should be involved. With regard to bioplastics the PETnology Forum was rounded off by a workshop on the subject of “PLA“. Here Brian Glasbrenner and Erwin Vink of NatureWorks LLC introduced a variety of PLA applications - not only bottles. At the end of the workshop they pointed out that NatureWorks is attempting to increase the environmental benefits of PLA by using wind energy. NatureWorks is one of the top 20 purchasers of renewable energy certificates (RECs). The net result of purchasing RECs and using a renewable feedstock leads to a reduction of 62-69 percent in fossil fuel use for the manufacture of NatureWworks PLA compared with traditional plastics. 42 bioplastics MAGAZINE [02/07] Vol. 2
