The Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) in Industry and the Skilled Crafts at RWTH Aachen University is cooperating with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) to research the use of plasma polymer mould coatings for the release agent-free production of polyurethane parts. According to the IKV, in PU processing the use of release agents has become well-established in the industry and the disadvantages associated with their use are generally regarded as unavoidable. These disadvantages range from the strict occupational safety regulations and longer cycle times to the need for regular mould cleaning to remove release agent residues. The logical consequence is that working without release agents offers plenty of optimisation potential, said the IKV. An alternative to conventional release agents are permanent plasma-polymer mould cavity coatings, which the IFAM developed jointly with IKV in two previous projects. Their effectiveness in the demoulding of PU parts has already been proven. For this reason, the current project will focus on a detailed study of the interaction of different PU material systems with plasma-polymer mould coatings. Apart from that, the research team will examine the stability of the mould coatings in the production tool. In addition to the substitution of traditional release agents, the new technology also has other advantages in processing. Firstly, it allows the moulding of finer surface textures because the mould structures can no longer become clogged with release agent. Secondly, there is no need to clean the moulded parts before secondary finishing steps such as surface coating. To conclude the studies, an appraisal is to be compiled of the usability of plasma polymer mould coatings in near-reality production scenarios for various PU mouldings. The economic efficiency of different scenarios will also be evaluated. source: gupta-verlag.com Related Articles: An Overview of the Plastic Industry in Turkey PepsiCo signs multi-year supply agreement for 100% sustainable PET with Loop Industries
A White Castle-based mechanical contractor hired to help build a fertilizer plant in southeast Iowa has been awarded $62.4 million by a federal jury, which concluded the fertilizer plant’s general contractor defaulted on a contract. Court documents show the jury found Orascom E&C USA breached a contract when it fired Maintenance Enterprises in October 2015, refused to pay for completed work and declined to allow the company to get its tools and equipment from the work site. The court battle began in February 2016 when Maintenance Enterprises sued claiming it was owed millions of dollars. Orascom, whose parent company is based in Egypt, countered with accusations of poor work quality and missed deadlines. The jury, however, sided with Maintenance Enterprises in its verdict issued Friday. Maintenance Enterprises attorney Mark Weinhardt says the verdict is total vindication of the company’s work on the $3 billion plant operating as Iowa Fertilizer Co. It is located near Wever, about 150 miles southeast of Des Moines. The state of Iowa provided $109 million in tax benefits for the plant, which has been called the largest construction project in Iowa history. source： https://www.businessreport.com Related Links Flexible fertilizer regulations could reduce pollution, save billions EuroChem takes on US fertilizer assets from Trammo

Kerry, the Taste and Nutrition Company, has released an interactive consumer preference simulator to supplement their latest white paper on sweetening agents, “Sensibly Sweet.” The proprietary preference simulator utilizes US consumer research data to help industry professionals understand the consumer-preferred combination of three nutritional details – the type of sweetening agent, calorie count and protein count – across six product categories. Kerry measured consumer perceptions of 17 sweetening agents to understand consumers’ preference surrounding sweetening agents across six product categories – sports drinks, carbonated soft drinks, ice cream, flavored alcoholic malt beverages, granola bars, and cookies. In their research, Kerry also investigated consumer purchase decision drivers when presented with a packaged product, examining which combination of sweetening agent type, calorie count and protein content were most preferred on an ingredient deck and nutritional panel. With the simulator, users can choose a product category and adjust the sweetening agent type, calorie count and protein level for up to three product combinations, determining the most consumer-preferred combination in their results for a consumer-led approach to developing. Lauren Piek, Digital Marketing Specialist at Kerry, tells FoodIngredientsFirst: “As for initial results, since this tool is a simulator, the purpose is to discover consumer-preferred combinations of sweetening agents, calorie count and protein content. The next step is for users to go over the results with a member of our R&D team, and see how consumer-preferred ingredients can be applied to real-life formulations.” “The consumer preference simulator is a simplified and easy-to-use tool that estimates consumer preference of varying levels of calories, proteins, and type of sweetening agent in six different product types,” explains Soumya Nair, Director of Marketing Insights. “The consumer preference simulator is a simplified and easy-to-use tool that estimates consumer preference of varying levels of calories, proteins, and type of sweetening agent in six different product types,” explains Soumya Nair, Director of Marketing Insights. “The simulator particularly helps formulators, developers and business development professionals to understand which combinations are the most consumer-preferred for informed prototyping or reformulating. We recommend using the tool through all phases of the product development cycle, to stay in touch with the end user preference. Staying ahead of evolving consumer preferences can lead to better innovation and development solutions that meet the demands of consumers across a variety of applications.” To accomplish this, Kerry offers TasteSense, which addresses the challenges in sweetness, mouthfeel and masking through sensory-validated natural flavor solutions that allow you to maintain the taste consumers love while delivering products to meet their nutritional expectations. The study included American consumers across gender, age groups, and ethnicities, uncovering specific product categories that were perceived to have high amounts of sugar, the amount of sugar that consumers expect across particular product categories, and consumer taste preferences for reduced-sugar products. The research focuses on how consumer perceptions can inform the manufacturing, retail, and foodservice industries to understand the future of food and beverages. source: https://www.foodingredientsfirst.com Related Links Zero-calorie sweetener: Amyris inks major supply deal with ASR Amyris gets GRAS approval for sweetener
COLOMBO (News 1st) –Measures have been taken to distribute fertilizer required for the ‘Maha’ season to all the storage facilities across the island, stated the National Fertilizer Secretariat. Director General of the Secretariat, Ajith Pushpakumara said that a bag of fertilizer used for paddy will be sold at a price of Rs. 500 rupees while a bag of fertilizer used for supplementary crops will be sold at Rs. 1500. The government will bear a cost of Rs. 3000 for a 50kg fertilizer bag used for cultivating paddy fields, while a cost of Rs. 2000 will have to be borne for a 50kg fertilizer bag used for cultivating supplementary crops. It is expected that 800,000 hectares of land will be cultivated during the ‘Maha’ season this year. It is also estimated that in order to meet the current demand, 245,000 metric tonnes of Uria, 75,000 metric tonnes of MOP and 65,000 metric tonnes of TSP will be required. Meanwhile, while speaking at an event held in Buttala yesterday (October 14), Minister of Agriculture Mahinda Amaraweera said that the fertilizer subsidy will remain unaffected regardless of the price hike of fertilizer in the global market. The Minister also stated that the government purchased fertilizer for a price between USD 300 and 335, but that global prices had increased upto USD 370. He explained that due to the situation, now the government would have to allocate around RS. 40,000 million and not Rs. 33,000 billion like before. However, Minister Mahinda Amaraweera assured that regardless of the cost that the government has to bear, that with the help of the national government headed by President Sirisena, a plan to continue offering fertilizer between Rs. 500 and 1500 will continue. The Minister added that for the first time in history, a national policy for agriculture will also be implemented before November. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Agriculture requests farmers to commence farming for the ‘Maha ‘ Season, using rainwater. Following an inquiry made by News 1st, the Ministry of Irrigation stated that water for farming will be released from tomorrow. source: https://www.newsfirst.lk Related Links EuroChem takes on US fertilizer assets from Trammo Expect Higher Fertilizer Bills Next Season
