Case for Improving Plastics Circularity in Asia

EcoBlue has been working to develop rPET grade suitable for food contact applications over the past few years. The company have received a Letter of No Objection from US FDA for rPET for food contact use. Being a part of the recycling industry over these years and also working on developing rPET grades suitable for food contact, has given EcoBlue a first-hand experience of the various elements at play in the recycling industry in the region.
Pranay Jain shares his insights with other stakeholders involved the pertinent factors that he feels have an influence on improving circularity of plastics in Asia.

Glass Containers for Packaging of Pharmaceutical Products

Glass is an ideal container material for pharmaceuticals products regarding thermal and chemical resistance, and tunable transparency or selective absorption. However, glass needs high temperatures to melt and processing is highly dependent on the melt viscosity of the liquid glass. This study presents the temperature dependent viscosity of two packaging glass materials, as well as measurements of the visco-elastic properties. Quantitative data on flow and deformation behaviour are relevant for temperatures above and below the working point.
