THE ENVIRONMENT

’s d l r o W the o m t e l r e b o w r s P n tic eA s n a O l e P B t Migh

A technology startup near Ontario’s leafy border with Michigan says it has the answer to the world’s plastic pollution problem: sawdust. Origin Materials is getting ready to pay sawmills in the area $20 a ton for the scraps left over in the process of turning logs into lumber, which it will use to make recyclable plastic bottles that remove carbon-dioxide from the sky because they’re made from sustainably sourced wood waste. Nestle SA, Danone SA and PepsiCo Inc. plan to sell water in Origin’s recyclable plant-based bottles in early 2022.

8 REFRIGERATION Magazine │September 2019

It’s one of the many unconventional ways conceived by scientists to reduce the world’s reliance on plastics made from petroleum, which emit as much climate-damaging pollutants as 189 coal plants each year from production to incineration. Other so-called biobased plastics are being developed from sugar, corn, algae, seaweed, sewage and even dead beetles. “Consumers are caring about plastic in a way that they haven’t in a long time, maybe ever,” said John Bissell, 34, who founded Origin Materials in 2008 and has spent 10 years working as an engineer developing alternative plastics that don’t contribute to climate change. “Everyday things like

bottles and clothing can now become carbon negative, but remain otherwise functionally identical.” That may be true in theory, but phasing out petroleum-based plastics will be an uphill battle. Use of the material has become so ingrained for societies around the world that about half of all new oil demand through 2040 will come from petrochemicals, an industry that relies on plastics for most of its business, according to BloombergNEF. The $500 billion global plastics market is responsible for 5% of greenhouse gas emissions, Friends of the Earth data show. Some projections see that ratio tripling in the next 30 years.


Plant-based plastics, especially varieties made from sugar cane, are starting to seep into the mainstream as companies try to respond to consumers who are increasingly angry about the ecologically devastating impact of plastics. London-based Bulldog sells its male skincare products in plastic tubes made from sugar cane. Last year, Danish toymaker Lego A/S started including botanical pieces, like leaves, bushes and trees, made entirely of plant-based plastics in its box sets. It’ll take getting big food and beverage companies on board to really alter the equation. Nestle alone produces 1.7 million tons of plastic packaging a year, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, enough to make over 51 billion bottles. Beverage makers like Coca-Cola Co. and Pepsi use a lot more than that. Coca-Cola rolled out its so-called plant bottle in 2009, but it’s still 70% petroleum based.

Did you know? Plastics made from petroleum emit as much climate-damaging pollutants as 189 COAL PLANTS each year?

Bottle Alliance to find ways to reduce the carbon footprint of beverage bottles. All three plan to buy 100% plant-derived bottles from Origin Materials when its Ontario plant gets up and running at the end of 2020 with a starting capacity of 300 million bottles a year.

Origin Materials developed a way to extract cellulose from wood waste to make para-xylene, a hydrocarbon usually derived from oil used to manufacture PET, one of the most common plastics today. Since trees and plants naturally capture CO2 through photosynthesis, using sustainably sourced sawdust and wood chips more than offsets any pollutants

released in the manufacturing process, according to Bissell. However ingenious the techniques to make plant-based bottles may get, though, they’re still plastic. Not all varieties are recyclable or biodegradable. And ultimately unless they are recycled — and worldwide only one out of every five bottles is — plastic bottles inevitably end up in landfills where they may spew pollutants into the air, or worse, find their way into the oceans where most could take hundreds of years to degrade, killing birds, fish and whales in the process. When incinerating, biobased plastics may be little better than

“There is no doubt that awareness around plastic waste has become more prominent in the last two years,” said Simon Lowden, president of PepsiCo’s global snacks group, which announced in 2016 it would seek to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2030. As part of a strategy to find more sustainable packaging, Pepsi last year joined Nestle and Danone’s NaturALL

oil-based ones because the carbon stored in them is released. Since David Attenborough’s Blue Planet 2 documentary in 2017 showed albatrosses feeding their chicks plastic by accident, plastic’s environmental impact has “gone from a niche topic of conversation and engagement to something that features in all our conversations,” said Mark Lancelott, a sustainability expert at PA Consulting Group Ltd. The London-based consultancy has seen a “significant increase” in requests from food and beverage companies on how to manage plastic waste. After the European Union and New York announced bans this year on certain single-use plastics, many companies are getting nervous about how far those regulations could go, added Katherine Lampen, a London-based partner in Deloitte’s sustainability advisory team, which advises big consumer packaged good companies. “They are concerned that the future viability of their business could be reduced due to a heavy reliance on the material,” she said. Skeptics of the bioplastic push say they’re not resolving the underlying problem. It would be better to focus on improving rates of reuse of plastic or glass packaging, with waste collected by the producer, according to Juliet Phillips, an ocean campaigner at the Environmental Investigation Agency, a non-governmental organization. If production of plant-based plastics were to be scaled up, “land-use demands could bring about competition with agriculture, accelerating deforestation concerns and biodiversity loss,” she said.

10 REFRIGERATION Magazine │September 2019

For Bissell at Origin Materials, the plastic industry has become too important for global commerce to work on only one front to improve sustainability, especially considering soaring demand in emerging markets where reuse programs tend to be underdeveloped. “The end of life of plastics is really important. I’m not too sure that I’d argue that it’s more important than climate change. That feels like maybe not the right trade off to make,” he said. RM – With assistance from Hayley Warren.

2019 PIAA Conference and Trade Show Novotel Hotel, Brighton Le Sands

Sydney, Australia By: Gary Wing CEO/Treasurer PIAA

Another PIAA Conference And Trade Show has now come and gone after many months of preparation. The venue proved to be well located and accommodated our requirements ideally. A total of approximately 65 attended over the 3 days with 17 coming from overseas with some of these in Australia for the first time, speaking with these guys throughout the Conference I think all were suitably impressed. We appreciate this international interest it definitely adds a positive aspect to the Conference so anyone thinking of coming Down Under in future years you would be more than welcomed. After a period of fine weather in Sydney it unfortunately turned a bit rough for the start of the Conference with strong winds causing the Airport to close some of the runways which created flight delays for some and total cancellations for others, including

me, so straight away on the internet, I finally got a flight with another airline the next morning without too much damage being done. The Trade Show was well presented and provided great interest for attendees, so thank you to our exhibitors for their efforts. The presentation and subsequent discussion on “The Future of Plastics and The Environment,” proved to be informative and of interest. This is a subject I’m sure will be discussed more and more in the future. The presentation on “Chain of Responsibility in the Transport Industry and Appropriate Legislation,” by Peter Walters of Roads and Marine Services, also proved to be of great interest and relative to those in attendance. After winding up the business side of the Conference with a successful Annual Gala Dinner, many of us got up the next day and headed to Sydney Harbour for a relaxing Lunch while cruising and sight seeing on this magnificent harbour. The weather turned fine for us and a great day was had by all, something I recommend anyone if given the chance.

ICE BATHS

Here’s What Happened When I Took Ice Water Baths Every Day for 2 Weeks By Jeff Haden

Improving productivity through positive stress (and whole body cryotherapy) is all the rage, so I decided to stress myself and check out the results. Spoiler alert: I got really freaking cold. For a long time, I just thought I liked to do foolish things. Like doing 5,000 push-ups in one day. Or doing 1,000 pull-ups in one day. Or deciding to train like Nascar champion Jimmie Johnson for a week. (At least I think I trained like JJ for a week; I’ve tried hard to repress that experience.) Now I realize I’m part of a movement: The “positive stress” movement embraced by a number of tech entrepreneurs and “regular” folks, too. Positive stress practitioners embrace some combination of radical diets, extreme temperatures, and brutal exercise routines in the hope they will be able to work longer and better...and maybe even live longer and better. But one thing many positive stress practitioners seem to agree on is total body cryotherapy: standing nearly naked in a walk-in cold chamber--think minus 250 degrees--for three minutes. 14 REFRIGERATION Magazine │September 2019

So I tried it.

I stepped into the cylinder-shaped freezing chamber--your head remains above the chamber, like a hot dog sticking out of the bun--wearing socks, gloves, and a bathing suit. When the tech threw the switch, it got cold fast. She told me to turn slowly to make sure the cold air reached every part of my body.

It did.

While it felt really cold, it didn’t feel as cold as a dip in the ocean in wintertime. (Yes, I’ve done that. And yes, it sucks.) And I did feel some of my soreness from the previous day’s workout disappear, which is one of the benefits claimed by total body cryotherapy aficionados. But maybe that’s just because I was distracted by feeling pretty freaking cold. While plenty of athletes (Hi Lebron!) and celebrities believe it helps, empirical

evidence of the benefits of cryotherapy is hard to come by. Cold therapy--think ice packs and dunking body parts in ice water--does help reduce inflammation and help treat soft-tissue injuries, but even some of the makers of cryotherapy devices stop short of claiming medical benefits: Mark Murdock, managing partner at CryoUSA, says use provides “comfort,” not medical assistance. And in many ways, that’s OK. To me, occasionally doing foolish things (oops: embracing “positive stress”) has greater mental than physical benefits. So I decided to lay in an ice water bath for five minutes a day, every day, for two weeks. Partly I did that because whole body cryotherapy is fairly expensive. A single session costs about $40, a two-week plan approximately $300. More than that, though, I didn’t want to spend an hour each day driving back and forth. So I went to a nearby convenience store, bought five 10-pound bags of ice, emptied them into a large tub, and filled it with cold water. I let the mixture sit for 20 minutes so the water--and the tub-could get as cold as possible.


Then I set a timer for five minutes and eased in.

What was that like?

The first moments stung. Then the sharp pain quickly went away, but the cold didn’t. (Especially where my body touched the tub.) I closed my eyes and tried not to focus on the clock while I searched for my Zen place. I never found my Zen place. Five minutes felt like forever. When I got out, just as with cryotherapy, the soreness I had felt was gone. (Again, though, I might have just been distracted by feeling really cold.) So then I took an ice bath every day for the next 13 days. Did it make me feel better? Did it improve my performance, both

physically and mentally? Did it make me better prepared to conquer the tech world...or whatever world I decided to conquer? In most ways, no. Granted, I did feel less sore after particularly difficult workouts. That’s a proven benefit of cold therapy. But I’m not sure the discomfort of lounging in ice water outweighs the discomfort of soreness. But in other ways, my ice baths did help. It’s fun to do something you aren’t sure you can do. The confidence boost that comes from competing against yourself-and winning--extends into every other part of your life. And it was a great reminder that I can always do more than I think. I didn’t want to take ice baths. I never stopped dreading those five minutes. The sound

of ice clinking into the tub made me cringe. But I did it. If I can do that... what else can I do that I don’t think I can do? That was the real benefit. We always have more in us. Ice baths helped remind me of that. “Positive stress” helped remind me of that. After all, most limits are arbitrary and self-imposed. When we think we’re out of strength or energy, when we think we’re out of brain power or willpower, we’re not. We just think we are. Remembering that you are capable of more? Thinking, “OK, this will be hard...but shoot, if I can take ice baths, I can do this”? That’s the first step to achieving more. RM
