From PET to PEF – Recycling continues

The Dutch company Avantium (http://www.avantium.com/)  has developed a novel process for the creation of bioplastics (PEF) from plant based materials  (waste paper, sugar cane, agricultural waste, corn). PEF is a  100% biobased polyester with better properties than existing packaging materials. Partners in the development are Coca-Cola Company, Danone and ALPLA.  PEF bottles leave a more modest ecological footprint than PET bottles.  They are compatible with existing recycling streams. See for details the video on http://avantium.com/yxy/YXY-technology.html.
