News 4 th Annual ‘Green Plastics‘ in Israel Israel is going through a real change in it’s attitude towards waste management in general and specifically management of packaging waste, as a new government law was passed and declared active from July 2011. This law, created in the format of known European similar structures, along with the new strategy of the Israeli Ministry of environmental protection, gives way for new waste separating methodologies, both for municipalities and Industrial bodies. It is safe to say, that within 2-4 years, most of the households in Israel, will be separating waste into an organic stream and other 1-2 ‘dry’ streams. Within this atmosphere, Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, located in Ramat Gan, a dynamic city adjacent to Tel Aviv, Israel, had held the 4 th annual ‘green plastics’ convention in Ramat Gan, Israel. As in previous years, the day was full of speakers concentrating on Bio-Plastics (bio-based and biodegradable). The first half of the day was held in English with speaker guests from BASF, FKUR and University of Massachusetts, Lowell. A noted speech was given by Patrick Zimmermann of FKuR, who spoke of using Bioplastics in ‘Multilayer systems’, offering new possibilities and more applications then ever. The second half of the day was dedicated to Israeli speakers, Researchers from Shenkar institute and from Israeli compounding companies such as Tosaf and Kafrit. Israel is expecting a breakthrough in the Bioplastics market. An infrastructure is being built in the form of the Israeli standard SII 6018 - ‘Bioplastics and it’s products’ and a soon to be formed standard for determining of bio-based content. With Hi-tech plastic & packaging producers, an innovative market and an awakening environmental awareness, Israel could very well be, a surprising market for Bio-Plastics in the coming years. First Biological Material Industry Union in China Founded At the 3 rd China International Biological Plastic Application Conference (Guangzhou, May 15-16, 2011) a new Low-carbon Biomaterial Production & Research Innovation Alliance was established by over 30 organizations, all engaged in low carbon biological plastic industry. It is the first industrial alliance that specializes in biological material field in China. The union was mainly initiated by Shenzhen Esun Industrial Co., Ltd.. Yang Yihu, chairman of this company was appointed as the President of the union. Zhuo Renxi, an academic of Chinese Academy of Sciences was designated as the chief science consultant of the alliance. The more than 30 members include Tsinghua University Shenzhen Research institute, General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (Shenzhen) and RP TOPLA (Shenzhen). Yang Yihu said: ”The Innovation Union devotes to advocating low carbon, developing biological plastic industry, promoting low-carbon biological plastic economy, and building a harmonious happy lifestyle between man and nature. The innovation union aims at building a comprehensive resource platform of politics, production, study, research and capital, excavating industry technology & resources advantage of upstream and downstream, establishing sharing mechanism of innovation coalition resources, and realizing the breakthrough of key technology, the core technology and common technology in low carbon biological plastic industry.” In addition the alliance is going to create a good condition and operation environment for the cohesion of upstream achievements and downstream industry application, facilitate the conversion achievements to industrialization, and bring out a rapid development of low-carbon biological plastic industry.
