Ms. Sanaa Al Ghimlas - K-Pak's Opinion that Plastic is Not Evil and the Advantages of Plastic Over Other Packaging Materials

  1. 1. Sana’a Al –GhimlasKuwait Packing Materials Mfg Co. K.S.C. (C) Assistant Managing Director
  2. 2. Plas%cs  Vs.  Paper  Products   In order to make paper products with the same amount of durability and insulation as plastics, they are coated with wax and layered with aluminum or plastic. These products are impossible to recycle. A minimum of 20% less energy is needed to produce an EPS foam cup than a sleeved paper cup. * *  Based  on  informa%on  published  by  WinCup  Foam  Environmental  Facts  Found  on  Packaging  25-­‐1-­‐2010    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  3. 3. Plas%cs  Vs.  Paper  Products   A minimum of 19% fewer Greenhouse Gases are emitted during production of an EPS foam cup * The pulp and paper-making process discharges more than10 times the amount of concentrated oxygen-consuming pollutants than the EPS foam making process* *  Based  on  informa%on  published  by  WinCup  Foam  Environmental  Facts  Found  on  Packaging  25-­‐1-­‐2010    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  4. 4. Plas%cs  Vs.  Glass   Glass bottles have the highest weight and large volume, making them the most expensive and least energy efficient in transport. Glass bottles are 32% less energy efficient than aluminum and PET to produce and distribute. **  Based  on  informa%on  published  by  NAPCOR  The  Environmental  Impact  of  So;  Drink  Delivery  Systems  1995    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  5. 5. Plas%cs  Vs.  Glass   Production of glass bottles results in the highest levels of atmospheric emissions compared with aluminum and PET * A 16 oz glass bottle results in 68% greater solid waste than a PET bottle with the same volume**  Based  on  informa%on  published  by  NAPCOR  The  Environmental  Impact  of  So;  Drink  Delivery  Systems  1995    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  6. 6. Plas%cs  Vs.  Aluminum     Aluminum cans create more solid waste that PET bottles and have a greater environmental impact. Aluminum can production results in the highest levels of waterborne wastes compared with glass and PET **  Based  on  informa%on  published  by  NAPCOR  The  Environmental  Impact  of  So;  Drink  Delivery  Systems  1995    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  7. 7. Plas%cs  Vs.  Aluminum     Aluminum cans result in higher levels of air emissions than PET * A 12 oz aluminum can results in 18% greater solid waste than a 16 oz PET bottle**  Based  on  informa%on  published  by  NAPCOR  The  Environmental  Impact  of  So;  Drink  Delivery  Systems  1995    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  8. 8. PET  Vs.  Degradable  Plas9cs     There are 2 kinds of degradable plastics: 1.  Bio-Based plastics like PLA. These products are made from plant materials like corn . They are non-recyclable. Tests have shown that these plastics will not degrade in a typical land ll, most require conditions of high-heat commercial composting facilities.* *Based  on  informa%on  published  by  the  APR  Degradable  Plas@cs  9-­‐2009    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  9. 9. PET  Vs.  Degradable  Plas9cs     There are 2 kinds of degradable plastics: 2.  Plastics made with materials of PET standards with degradable additives. Plastics with degradable additives are contaminants to the recycling system * If introduced into the recycling system degradable additives result in reduced quality plastics * *Based  on  informa%on  published  by  the  APR  Degradable  Plas@cs  9-­‐2009    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  10. 10. P.E.T.  Polyethylene  Terephthalate     PET  is:    -­‐Transparent      -­‐ShaAerproof      -­‐Reseal-­‐able      -­‐Lightweight    -­‐Inexpensive     PET  is  safe  because  it  has  inherent  barrier  proper9es  that   effec%vely  protect  and  preserve  stored  products.    *Based  on  informa%on  published  by  the  NAPCOR  PET  Features,  Benefits  &  Informa@on  Resources    &  PET  Fact  Sheet    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  11. 11. P.E.T.  Polyethylene  Terephthalate     -­‐ PET  has  the  least  environmental  impact  compared  with  glass   and  aluminum  in  air  emissions  and  waterborne  wastes.     -­‐ PET  is  lightweight  so  it  is  easier  to  transport  resul%ng  in      fewer  greenhouse  gas  emissions.       -­‐  PET  has  superior  product  to  packaging  ra9o      resul%ng  in  less  solid  waste.  *Based  on  informa%on  published  by  the  NAPCOR  PET  Features,  Benefits  &  Informa@on  Resources    &  PET  Fact  Sheet    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  12. 12. Which  are  Packaging  Materials  are  Recyclable?  *Based  on  informa%on  published  by  the  NAPCOR  PET  Features,  Benefits  &  Informa@on  Resources    &  PET  Fact  Sheet    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  13. 13. Let’s  Compare  *Based  on  informa%on  published  by  the  NAPCOR  PET  Features,  Benefits  &  Informa@on  Resources    &  PET  Fact  Sheet    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  14. 14. So,  which  is  the  MOST  environmentally  efficient?  *Based  on  informa%on  published  by  the  NAPCOR  PET  Features,  Benefits  &  Informa@on  Resources    &  PET  Fact  Sheet    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  15. 15. Why  Recycle?     1.  Conserve  Raw  Materials.     Reduce  the  need  for  virgin  petrochemical  feedstock.     PET  packaging  can  be  made  from  up  to  100%  recycled  PET.   PET  can  be  recycled  mul9ple  9mes.    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  16. 16. Why  Recycle?     2.  Conserve  Environment  &  Energy.     Conver%ng  recycled  PET  to  a  virgin  equivalent  requires  less  energy.   Life  Cycle  Inventory  Study  (2010)  showed  that  for  every  pound  of   recycled  PET  flake  used,  energy  use  is  reduced  by  84%;   greenhouse  gas  emission  by  71%.  Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  17. 17. Why  Recycle?     3.  Conserve  Space.   Each  ton  of  PET  recycled  conserves  around  5.6  cubic  meters     of  landfill  space.     Each  year  10,000  tons  of  PET  is  thrown  away  in  Kuwait.     By  recycling  it,  we  can  save  55,000  cubic  meters     of  space  in  landfills.  Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  18. 18. PET  Vs.  PLA   Decide  for  Yourself   *Video  courtesy  of  Global  PET  inc.    Plas%c  is  NOT  the  enemy      
  19. 19. Recycling is an Endless Business
