  • Introduction

    Cumapol, company introduction

    Current activities

    Future plans

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Introduction

    Marco Brons

    10 years Akzo Nobel

    10 years Wellman PET Resins

    Introduction EcoClear, bottle-to-bottle rPET in 1997

    Cumapol is founded in 2007

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Production facility

    Cumapol took over the former Akzo/Wellman PET production plant in Emmen, the Netherlands in 2010.

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Solid State Polymerization

    Toll conversion with the Continuous Solid State Polymerizationunits for the polyester industry.

    2 Continuous Lines with a capacity of 75 tons/day each

    Batch size > 100 ton

    Off spec < 1%

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • EFSA positive scientific opinion

    In 2013 Cumapol received the positive scientific opinion of EFSA for the Bottle-to-bottle process.

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Extrusion & compounding

    In 2013 Cumapol invested in extrusion capacity and

    started the production of mechanically recycled PET.

    Capacity: max. 48 tons/day

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Owners/Partners

    United Polymer Trading (UPT)

    DuFor Resins

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Products

    Bottle to Bottle, high clarity, IV 0.80

    Bottle to strapping, green, IV 0.95

    Custom Made Polyesters

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Why doing business with Cumapol?

    Virgin quality standard background

    Very robust cleaning efficiency

    One of the highest line capacities (30kton/year) in Europe for rPET

    Fully automated processes

    Custom made polyesters

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • The ultimate goal

    To demonstrate the transition of

    Linear PET production facility to

    Circular PET production facility

    M. Brons - March 2015

  • Transition step 1

    Market trend:

    Increase of collecting rate of good quality PET

    Cumapols solution:

    Increase of extrusion capacity to balance extrusion and SSP capacity at

    30.000 ton/year

  • 100% Biobased PET process BioPET100

    Corporation between bioBTX and Cumapol

    Patented process for the catalyzed pyrolysis of biomass (e.g. wood) generating a mixture of Benzene, Toluene and Xylenes (BTX).

    Separation and purification of pX and conversion to bioPTA

    Conversion of bioPTA with bioMEG to BioPET100

    First grams BioPET100 are produced!

    Planning: pilot plant being operational in 2016
