出版日期: 2014年10月15日 內容資訊: 英文 22 Pages
簡介

包裝是影響價值鏈中生產者與消費者的,廣泛的商品不可缺少的結構要素。生物為基礎/生物來源包裝的市場關心提高,在聚乳酸(PLA)等的替代塑膠,及PEF等的新包裝材料中,進行著研究開發。

本報告提供生物為基礎/生物來源的包裝調查分析、現狀、案例研究等,有系統的資訊。

摘要整理

形勢

  • 投資的焦點、混合式/性能材料。替換用聚合物與複合材料、繼續商業化。

案例研究

若把削減CO2排放量作為目標,PLA的真正價值為再生能源利用。這不是碳嵌入聚合物的時代。

分析

  • 生物為基礎/生物來源的包裝的選擇,應對削減排放量和永續性的問題。可是,效果是間接的,真正的價值在改良的性能。

目錄

Packaging is an integral component of a wide range of goods today, impacting producers and consumers across the value chain. Growing interest in bringing bio-based and bio-derived packaging to the market is driving research and development in substitute plastics, like polylactic acid (PLA), to drop-in replacements, like Coca-Cola's polyethylene terephthalate (PET) PlantBottle, and finally, to new packaging materials with improved performance, such as Avantium's polyethylene furanoate (PEF). To evaluate the current bio-based and bio-derived packaging landscape, we completed a case study of the published ecoprofile and life cycle assessment (LCA) data from NatureWorks' PLA facility. We then further analyzed published life cycle inventory and assessment data for PET, PEF, and Coca-Cola's releases about the PlantBottle to see where the true value of bio-based and bio-derived packaging comes from.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

LANDSCAPE

Major industry investment is focused on drop-in and performance materials, but replacement polymers and composites won't give in and continue to scale and commercialize.

CASE STUDY

If reduced CO2 emissions are the goal, the value of NatureWorks' PLA lies in the use of renewable energy credits and not in the age of the carbon embedded in the polymer.

ANALYSIS

Bio-based and bio-derived packaging options reduce emissions and tackle sustainability concerns, but the effects are indirect - improved performance is where the real value lies.
