news 8 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 01/09 www.petpla.net drink technology india overshadowed by terrorist attacks managing director of munich international trade fairs, norbert barg-mann: “drink technology india will take place again in 2010!” drink technology india, international convention for the beverage, liquid food and pet industry, was overshadowed by the terrorist attacks in mumbai, india. nevertheless, the event took place as planned in the grand hyatt hotel on 27 and 28 november. when the congress began on the morning of 27 november, mumbai had seen a night of terror - a crisis that took both munich international trade fairs as well as the event organiser totally by surprise. “there have been a few attacks in india and also in mumbai in this year, but terrorist attacks to that extent could simply not be expected”, said managing director of munich inter-national trade fairs, norbert bargmann. as a reaction to the attacks, the opening ceremony was cancelled, but the congress took place as planned - also with regards to the participants who had come to mumbai from all over the world. 45 companies from the bever-age and liquid food industry had booked stand spaces at the accompanying exhibition. being situated near the airport in the north of mumbai, the grand hyatt seemed to offer safety, as the attacks appeared to be concentrated in the south of the city. however, when the situation in mumbai got more and more precarious and unclear in the afternoon of 27 november, the congress management decided to leave it up to the concerned whether they wanted to participate on the second day or not. some of the exhibiting companies had already left at this point, others stayed in mumbai until the offi cial end of the event at their own risk. at the get-together in the evening, a minute’s silence in memory of the victims of the terrorist attacks was held. due to the terrorist attacks, the unclear information situation and the appeals to the inhabitants of mumbai to stay at their homes, clearly less visi-tors came to the grand hyatt than expected. the signs before the event had been very positive, though: a lot more visitors had pre-registered than for the premiere in 2007 and the demand for stand spaces at the accompanying exhi-bition in the hotel lobby had been higher than in the previous year. the conclusion of munich international trade fairs’ managing director, norbert bargmann: “we would like to thank all participants still believing in the event. due to the incidents, a qualitative and quantitative evaluation is not possible. there is, however, no doubt that we will adhere both to the event itself and the location in india. drink technology india will take place - after a one year break due to drinktec 2009 in munich - again in 2010!” emballage 2008 - paris the emballage exhibition, held in paris every two years, took place from november 17th to 21st, 2008 and attracted in excess of 101,000 trade visi-tors. from the trends area to the pack. vision symposium, as well as the bio-materials area and, for the fi rst time, the sustainable development area, the exhi-bition offered the widest array of packag-ing products, equipment and modern, environmentally-friendly solutions. the pack.vision symposium drew more than 1,700 participants to hear the papers delivered by international experts. almost 35 percent of the visitors were from out-side france and there was a sharp rise in visits from purchasing groups. emballage 2010 will take place in paris from november 22nd to 26th. petnology at anuga the petnology europe 2009 confer-ence (march 9 and 10) will take place in cologne, germany, and coincide with the anuga foodtec exhibition (march 10 to 13). the petnology conference will be held on the same colgne exhibition centre site, in the kristallsaal. at the anuga foodtec exhibition pet-nology will once again present the “pack-aging wall of excellence” where pet container and machinery manufacturers can present their products in transparent illuminated showcases with constantly changing coloured led lights to accentu-ate the display. the stand will also pro-vide a meeting place for pet exhibitors and their clients. further details at www.petnology.com

Page 11

regional market reports 11 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 01/09 www.petpla.net alfredo sette’s assignment and his commitment – according to his own words – are to develop the pet image for packaging and defend the pet business. members of the association are pet resin producers (100% represented by abipet), converters (80% repre-sented by abipet) and recyclers (60% represented by abipet). for the factual information about recycling in brazil please refer to “the brazilian pet story” in issue 1112_08of petplanet: in 2006 194,000 tonnes of post consumer pet were effectively collected and recycled, representing 51.3% of the country’s virgin demand. in 2007 the figure rose to 230,000 tonnes representing 53.2%. abipet’s activities are split into the following initiatives: the annual ecopet award in 5 categories for outstanding efforts in university studies, in research and develop-ment, in projects for collec-tion and separation of post consumer material, in enter-prise and company action as well as in individual crafts-manship. the award goes to companies and individuals. the recycling census, which is a statistical portrait of bra-zilian recycling reality. events for promotion of pet to the public, such as the “bottle-to-bottle” event at the fisbal exhibition, and similar. representation of pet indus- tries in front of the legislative government bodies and simi-lar entities on a state level. recycling in particular receives much of abipet’s attention as it appears to be the key to future develop-ments for all pet industries in brazil. in terms of trying to fi nd new applications for recycled material, abipet is in the forefront, generating ideas. alfredo sette: “there is no limitation to our fantasies.” his narrow offi ce is proof. pet toys, tubes, visiting cards, book covers and even furni-ture, are stored here. even the artistic sculpture of the eco pet award is made from recycled material. used pet bottles are ultimately reused for textiles, foil and sheet. any excess is exported, presumably to china.

regional market reports 12 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 01/09 www.petpla.net the “bottle-to-bottle” concept, which means the use of post-consumer pet for new bottles, has been approved by the mercosul authorities. as the percent-age blend with virgin was not mentioned in the docu-mentation, it is assumed that 100% recycled material was not excluded for new bottles. however the approval was made subject to a complex procedure. the result so far is that the “bottle-to-bottle” concept is permitted, but nobody seems to be allowed to use it in practice. however, the concept is of interest to industry. hence abipet is involved in freeing the process of undue complications and providing creative ideas for new control systems acceptable to anvisa, which is the health agency of the federal government. alfredo sette is confident that eventually all will agree to the return of recycled pet bottles into new bottle applications - anvisa, governments as well as industries. sidel do brazil “brazilians fi nd jobs, earn money and start to buy drinks.” michele biagioni junior – sales director marta ferreira – responsible for marketing the sidel/simonazzi merger, when it happened in europe, had worldwide consequences, including in brazil: sidel and simonazzi became one company under the brand name of sidel. here, as everywhere, the teams were integrated. sidel personnel moved into the premises of the former simonazzi. michele biagioni joined simonazzi in 1994, became industrial director in 2000, was in charge of all south ameri-can services in 2005 and since 2007 has been sales director responsible for the brazilian market – after another change, i.e. the centralisation and re-structuring of the latin american sidel business under the umbrella of mexico.michele was optimistic and he knew why. the present economic conditions in brazil are supporting business in general. the indications according to michele are: revaluation of the brazilian real to ease exports. agricultural commodities such as soy and maize are much in demand. good trading fi gures with industry doing well (automotive). infl ux of capital into the country. reduction of interest rates. credit facilities at preferential interest rates for small investors. government has injected money into the lower social classes and such programmes generate results. govern-ment claims that through control of infl ation and statutory salary rises jobs were created. 20 million brazilians were able to cross the poverty line. as he simply put it: “people fi nd jobs, earn money and start to buy drinks. we, the sidel/simonazzi combination, have no objection at all to such development. we are ready to participate.” history history of sidel do brazil is a summary of histories of sidel and simonazzi. sidel was in the country as early as 1989 with manufacturing in premises of initially 80 m2, thereafter on 1,350 m2, and fi nally on 2.300 m2. sidel models from the sbo 4/6 to the sbo 16 were made in brazilian plants. in 2005 sidel joined with and moved into the premises of simonazzi, ceasing all blower production activity, but continu-ing with service and moulds. simonazzi’s history in brazil refl ects the frequent changes of ownership - from simonazzi to sasib, to sig and fi nally to sidel. 1994 entry of simonazzi beverage operations into sasib brazil 1995 production of conveyors, bottle washers and pasteuris-ers 1995 acquisition of figgie, starting production of mojonnier mixers 1996 production of depalletisers and palletisers 2001 integration into sig beverages 2003 production of fi rst fi ller 2005 joins sidel product and population 300 sidel blowing machines with altogether 2,400 cavi-ties have been sold and installed in brazil – the majority still operating. this represents a 75% share (sidel count) in the selected market of high performance blowers and the number 1 position with regard to existing machines in the market. annual sales expected: 10 sidel blowing machines. 60 sidel fi llers are in the market, originally sold under the name of simonazzi.

Page 13

regional market reports 13 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 01/09 www.petpla.net annual sales expected: 5 sidel fi lling machines. today most blowers as well as fi llers are sold as part of integrated lines – sold to beverage producer, but also to converters, who place the equipment in-house with their customers. sidel blowers come from france or malaysia, the fi llers from italy. all other line components are locally own made and/or locally sourced. local organisation factory fl oor of 6,500 m 2 , where the down-stream equip-ment is assembled to suit customers’ individual demands. mould manufacturing. 160 sidel people are employed in são paulo. future expectations when venturing into the future we dared to ask: has the period of change come to an end? how about sustainability now, how about sidel do brazil in fi ve year? michele did not hesitate displaying sales optimism: “it all depends on the overall development in brazil - industry and people. but growth is for sure. we predict growth for the market and for us. growth will be in water. coca-cola has invested heavily in water and juices.” and michele continues. “sidel is building on traditions in particular in the high-tech market with high-tech equipment and with sensitive fl exibility to adapt to all changes, which the market demands. factory capacities may be extended if nec-essary, either here on our premises or in the typically italian way i.e. by increasing the subcontracted elements.” consequently michele estimated the number of sidel pet lines he plans to sell in and for brazil from 2009 to 2012 as: 20 new pet lines for csd and 15 new pet lines for water. husky do brazil sistemas de injecão “husky’s tradition as the no. 1 pet injection moulder will be continued.” evandro cazzaro – director brazil tech center, left thomas häussler – director operations, right, with wolfgang von schroeter for petplanet insider

(husky comment: the space has been cleared out to make room for a local machine assembly program consisting two 300 ton hylectric machines in the following month.) the pioneering days are over in today’s pet business, without any doubt. husky business is on the way to becoming normal business – plan and profi t oriented. who is the new owner of husky? who is onex? a leading north american private equity fi rm founded in 1983, ipo in 1987 9 billion in assets under management invested 7 billion of equity since inception in 207 transactions controlled and owned (29%) by the onex manage-ment team strong track record and history of capital preservation signifi cant experience in the manufacturing sector including most recent acquisitions of: carestream health allison transmission hawker beechcraft husky performance in brazil altogether more than 130 systems for converting pet (petplanet’s own estimate) having an 80% share of market. other areas of brazilian husky business: moulding caps, automotive parts, packaging and medical. husky pet installations include the complete family of pet systems. 54% of husky pet systems in brazil are older than 10 years but still operate with the rated productivity, availability and overall performance. but for husky there is potential for replacement and upgrades more than 50% of supplied husky pet systems with 48 cavities approximately 18 systems with 72 cavities approximately 22 systems with 96 cavities 4 systems with 144 cavities 4 index systems with 8, 60 and 96 cavities about 8.000 installed pet cavities by husky represent-ing 85% of market. 7 converters account for approximately 80% of total husky cavities installed and of husky systems in operation. these converters are the big names in the market. local organisation the technical centre located in jundiai houses husky’s sales and service operations plus the hot runner manufac-turing groups, totalling 40 direct employees. the site was selected for reasons of proximity to amcor – one of husky’s best multi-national customers – and prominent names such as femsa coca-cola and ambev pepsi. apart from selling new machines and systems, focus at husky is on local engineering and manufacturing of hot run-ners. more than 1,000 hot runners have been supplied into the brazilian market, of which 700 were locally manufactured. currently additional machining capacity is being installed to manufacture hot runners, as well as to refurbish or partially refurbish moulds, to convert moulds (lightweighting and new neck fi nishes) and to maintain moulds. the husky teams also provide machine audits, which help customers to maximise machine effi ciency by upgrading exist-ing pet installations and planning replacement programmes. trends and opportunities evandro has a strong belief in the market opportunities which will reinforce the growth of brazil’s pet industries. he bases his views on the following considerations: pet has a strong share of a relatively small market. about 38% of all beverage packaging strong presence of cartons for milk and juices (tetrapack) brazil is the second largest aluminium producer and recy- cler (approximately 95%) bottled water consumption is at the moment only 30 litres per capita (mexico 128) market is consolidating. one company holds approximately 70% of beer market tier 2 brands have been reduced from 850 to about 300 in 5 years application opportunities lightweighting and new neck fi nishes (pco1881) bottle-to-bottle recycling recently approved by anvisa. evandro cazzaro: “thus we believe that the beverage market growth will continue annually by 7%. there is growth in beverages thanks to the overall positive and stable devel-opment of this country and consumer spending power. and

regional market reports 21 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 01/09 www.petpla.net brasalpla brasil “our motto: keep hold of your customer, because the word travels with your satisfi ed customers” bruno pinheiro cortes – director brasalpla in itapevi is not easy to fi nd – even with satellite navigation! which is probably not what even this normally publicity-shy company wanted. itapei, one of the numerous heavily populated small towns with small houses and narrow streets in the vicin-ity of são paulo, was, in 1999, the fi rst choice of director bruno pinheiro cortes for the brazilian head offi ce and the brazilian production facility of the globally expanding com-pany. here, in the workshops of a former textile processor, where once 3,000 workers toiled in a 17,000 m 2 factory, brasalpla started business. the head of the operation, bruno pinheiro cortes, greeted us in person. with experience in petrochemicals and packaging he was alpla’s main man from the beginning - and still is. he talked to us about the amazing growth of brasalpla, the company’s recipe for success and about his own personal motivation: “it’s partly a question of money - of course - partly we work for love and partly for fun.” it’s easy to believe what he says. alpla - history in the region alpla began in 1998 with an in-house production for a client in rio de janeiro (pe bottles for edible oil). this operation has now ceased. in 1999 the brasalpla facility in itapevi was established (pe bottles for edible oil, body care, household products) the second brasalpla facility with the same products and the same technology was established in louveira. the main alpla focus in the fi rst years was edible oil. brasalpla today is still a leader in the packaging of edible oil. in 2005 brasalpla made a belated entry into the bever-age business, having waited until after the market had con-solidated and 800 local brands were fi nally reduced to 300. as we have learned before, over a period of 5 years the beverage business in brazil went through consolidation and was fi nally concentrated in the hands of a few large bever-age producers such as coca-cola, their franchise compa-nies, and a few others. high-tech suppliers took advantage of the new market structure, and amongst them was brasal-pla, who started pet preform production in manaus. recently “in-house” production (blowing pet preforms in their clients’ plants) started with two operations at coca-cola in maranhão and mato grosso. a pointer to the way the market is developing is the fact that two more facilities are planned, one of which will be in or around recife. manufacturing sites the division of product across the various brasalpla plants is clearly defi ned: in itapevi is extrusion blowing of pe bottles; injection moulding pet preforms; blowing pet bottles; injection moulding caps and closures; labelling and silk screening of pe bottles. in louveira is only extrusion blowing of pe bottles, in manaus only injection moulding of pet preforms. manaus is tax free zone. this is why many manufacturers, includ-ing pet industries, have chosen the remote city in the amazon jungle – despite the long distances to the con-sumer markets in the south. brasalpla maintains that the manaus operation serves the northern beverage markets, the itapevi operation the southern beverage markets. product and production pet resin converted at present: 50,000 tonnes p.a. after installation of added capacity by next year: 80,000 tonnes p.a. number of preforms moulded (estimate): 2.2 billion units resin supplied by m&g. equipment used for extrusion moulding brasalpla use machines of alp-la’s own design, made in switzerland. for injection mould-ing of pet preforms they have 15 husky systems with a total of around 800 cavities. for blow moulding of pet bottles they have sidel and lately krones equipment. for injection moulding of caps and closures there are machines from engel and husky. bruno said: “from 1998 we have grown brasalpla by an annual average of between 30 and 35% - not by acquisition but by our own internal efforts, with the necessary fi nancial support for investment and training of personnel.” when asked what was the secret of that success he replied: “we have no more than 20 customers, but they are of course the best performers in brazil. our focus is on exist-ing customers. keep hold of your customers – this is our brasalpla motto. this is more important than winning new customers.” and he mentions some of the 20 customers - coca-cola (beverages), cargil (edible oil), adm (edible oil), schincariol (beverages), unilever, johnson wax, procter & gamble, bdf nivea, loreal, avon, etc, etc. most – if not all – are global operators. alpla follows them globally, serves them globally, maintains them globally. “we don’t need advertising or displays at exhibitions, because the word travels with our satisfi ed customers. alpla’s reputation gets known and alpla’s products sell” he adds comfortably. 2 isplays at exhibitions, reg i ona l mar ke t repor t s brazil part 3 issue 2/2009

(e.g. material a lasts 40 years “carbon footprints” are very topical at the moment. a carbon footprint is a specifi c type of life cycle assessment (lca) - a simple, yet graphic measure of the resources con-sumed and the waste produced by a given system under prevail-ing technology. but what does it tell us? thoughts on a carbon footprint

material / recycling 24 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 01/09 www.petpla.net from bottle to strapping band there is a steadily increasing demand for pet strapping as an alternative to steel strapping. the pet recycling experts, erema of austria, have tackled this subject and at the end of last year, in association with their technology partners techno plastic of italy, they presented a commer-cially attractive process for the production of pet strapping. using the new equipment pet strapping band with a tensile strength of up to 548 n/mm can be produced directly from low quality pet bottle fl akes. the system comprises an erema vacurema basic 1308 te extrusion line and a techno plastic tight strap 300 stretching line. the system has a throughput of up to 300 kg/h of high tensile strength strapping of a small cross-section, thus making for a cost-effective use of raw materials. compared to conventional extruder processing systems the new strap-ping system achieves both a saving in input material costs of 20 to 25% and a saving of approximately one third of the energy costs: a strapping band extruded from 100% post consumer recycled pet bottle fl ake (pcr-fl akes) and featuring a cross-section of only 15.75 mm x 0.80 mm has a tensile strength of up to 548 n/mm 2 . the erema compact vacurema technology, which enables the processing of pet bottle fl ake in one step with virtually no loss of viscosity, eliminates the need for pre-crystallisation or pre-drying. moreover, the erema process has an approximately 30% lower power input requirement than a conventional extru-sion line with an upstream crystalliser and drier. the system can also process treatment of the material under high vacuum effectively removes contami-nants and moisture, even in cases where there are fl uctuating moisture contents up to 1.5%. moreover, the build-up of intrinsic viscosity (iv) in the reactor counteracts the loss of viscos-ity (material degradation) that normally occurs in the extruder. thus the viscos-ity of the product is comparable to that of the bottle fl ake fed into the reactor. the techno plastic tight strap 300 stretching system is installed directly downstream of the vacu-rema. the melt from the vacurema extruder enters the spinneret, which is equipped with a double melt pump. here it is divided into four band-shaped strands. after initial cooling (solidifying) the strands have a cross-section of 35.6 mm x 1.8 mm. they pass through several temperature-controlled processing stages during which they are stretched (in so-called godets) and embossed and stabilised. following this they pass via the fi nal cooling sta-tion to the winding unit, with their fi nal cross section the overall length of the stretching line is around 50 metres. virgin material or blends of virgin mate-rial, bottle fl ake and strapping scrap in any desired proportions. optimum process control for high quality pet strapping the aim of developing such an optimised system was to achieve economical processing of pet bottle fl ake into a high-quality melt without any material degradation, i.e. without any loss of viscosity in comparison to the material fed into the extruder. in this way it is possible to achieve higher stretching levels without sacrifi cing strength. the result is a considerable reduction in material consumption. this was achieved through modifi cations carried out on the vacurema basic reactor. compared to the standard version, used previously, the volume of the vacuum reactor in the new strap-ping system was doubled and at the same time rated for a vacuum of less than 10 mbar. an increased reactor volume in conjunction with reduced feed intervals produced the desired positive effect. the extended pre-heavy-duty pet strapping band produced economically from pet bottle fl ake with the new plant concept from erema and techno plastic photo: erema/techno plastic
