  • Mura Technology Opens Doors to World’s First Commercial Scale HydroPRS™ Advanced Plastic Recycling Site in Teesside UK

    Mura Technology has opened the world’s first commercial-scale HydroPRS™ advanced plastic recycling plant in Teesside, UK, to key representatives from the advanced recycling and plastic manufacturing value chains. The event marks the beginning of commissioning, with the first recycled hydrocarbon products expected to be delivered to Mura’s offtake partners in 2024.     The purpose-built facility at the Wilton International industrial site will process flexible and rigid mixed plastics, including films, that are currently considered ‘unrecyclable’.   The site has capacity to produce 20ktpa of recycled liquid hydrocarbon products, with scope to expand production capacity to over three times this initial size. Located at Wilton International, Teesside, the site will provide up to 50 direct jobs, having created approximately 150 jobs during the build and commissioning phases, and approximately 100 further jobs within related infrastructure to support operations.     Pioneered by Mura Technology, the HydroPRS™ process, unlike pyrolysis, utilises supercritical water (water under high pressure and high temperature) to convert post-consumer, multi layered, flexible and rigid plastics such as films, pots, tubs and trays, which are largely considered ‘unrecyclable’ through other methods, into high yields of stable, premium hydrocarbon feedstocks. Through this process, there is no limit to the number of times the same material can be recycled – meaning HydroPRS™ has the potential to significantly reduce single-use plastics and permanently increase material circularity in the plastics industry. By providing a route to recycling for these materials, Mura is creating a complementary process to sit alongside traditional mechanical recycling, as highlighted in a recent technical report by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC).   Use of plastic, particularly in single-use packaging, has overwhelmed recycling and waste systems globally. Recycling rates for plastic packaging vary globally with the UK at 50% and the US at only 13%.   Poor waste management has led to plastic entering our environment. Durability means plastic remains in our rivers and seas for years, slowly breaking up into microplastics. The harmful impacts of plastic pollution on both human health and marine life are only just starting to be understood.   Independent Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) based on the first site at Teesside have shown the HydroPRS™ process provides an 80% carbon emissions saving by diverting ‘unrecyclable’ plastic away from incineration. When compared to fossil oil-based feedstock, HydroPRS™ produces products with an equivalent or lower Global Warming Potential and saves up to five barrels of oil for every tonne of plastic waste processed.   Mura has been supported by investment from blue-chip companies across the plastic recycling value chain including KBR, Dow, CPChem, LG Chem and igus GmbH, alongside funding from UK Research & Innovation’s Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging Challenge and the Government’s Future Fund. These partnerships have enabled Mura to begin scaling worldwide, with plans in development for sites in the USA and at Dow’s Böhlen site in Germany. Alongside these investments, the company has secured partnerships with Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, LG Chem and GS Caltex Corporation for the development of HydroPRSTM facilities under licence in Japan and South Korea.       credit More

  • Promoting green packaging technology trends at Propak Vietnam 2023

    The Propak Vietnam 2023 exhibition and seminar series that recently took place in Ho Chi Minh City introduced many advanced packaging technologies. Many in-depth sharing sessions helped visitors gain more knowledge about expanded responsibility in the packaging industry, towards green growth, and reduce emissions.   ProPak Vietnam 2023 attracts the participation of more than 400 exhibitors from more than 30 countries and territories, mainly from developed and developing countries and territories such as the United States, Italy, Germany, France, Netherlands.   The products on display focus on packaging and processing technology; technology for the beverage and pharmaceutical industries; materials; cold supply chain, logistics, storage; coding, marking and labeling technology; printing technology; technology, laboratory instruments, testing and many other services.   Within the framework of the exhibition, there are also a series of international and technical seminars revolving around many aspects of the processing and packaging industry. A typical example is the International Conference program with the topic "Smart Packaging and Opportunities for Vietnam in the Asia-Pacific Region," organized by Informa Markets in conjunction with the Active & Intelligent Packaging Industry Association (AIPIA); and workshop "Food Security and Climate Change," co-organized by Vietnam Association of Food Science and Technology (VAFoST); and workshop "Regulating the extended responsibility of manufacturers under the Law on Environmental Protection: Opportunities for developing green - environmentally friendly packaging," coordinated by the Center for Services and Events of Natural Resources and Environment organization; or a seminar on the topic "Optimizing waste treatment and processing technology: Improving production efficiency and reducing environmental impact."   Packaging is one of the important industries in preserving, transporting and distributing goods. Mordor Intelligence reports that Vietnam's plastic packaging market is expected to grow from 10.07 million tons in 2023 to 15.09 million tons in 2028, with an average annual growth rate of 8.44% (2023 - 2028).   In particular, paper packaging is expected to achieve significant growth, from $2.37 billion in 2023 to $3.77 billion in 2028, with a CAGR of 9.73%. At the same time, packaging for the food and beverage industry continues to occupy a significant market share.   This poses the problem of balancing economic and environmental benefits for traditional companies, while creating many new opportunities for other businesses.     article credit More
