Toyota Tsusho's Bio-PET rolls out

It's 2am and I'll make this a quickie post before my eyes popped out of my head.

Illinois, US-based Clear Lam Packaging announced yesterday that it has signed a deal with Toyota Tshusho for the use of its Bio-PET (polyethylene terephthalate) resin in Clear Lam's rollstock product line.

The new Clear Lam Bio-PET rollstock will be available in December and will run on existing equipment, including form fill and seal machinery used by food processors as well as on traditional industrial thermoformers. Clear Lam said it will incorporate the plant-based Bio-PET in sheet extrusions that will be sold to consumer packaged goods companies and manufacturers of industrial goods.
