2 2 Welcome 4 th plastics project conference call Information available at: During today’s call… –please press *6 to mute your line –use ‘chat’ on webinar control panel for technical support –open lines at ‘roundtable’ for verbal questions

3 3 Proposed Agenda Roll call & Introductions (Mike Birett) Minutes/business from last meeting & CIF REOI Update (Mike Birett) Update/Q&A on CIF-supported plastics–related projects (Geoff Love) Update/Q&A on CIF/Stewardship Ontario/ NAPCOR thermoform PET project (Mike Schedler) Round table discussion re: any other plastics recycling developments Wrap-up & plan for next call

4 4 CIF’s REOI Total CIF funding available in 2010 is $24 million $18.6 mil set aside for priority projects: –Integrated Recycling plans ̶ Curbside containers –Multi- res capacity ̶ Co-op marketing –ESCOs ̶ Public Space recycling –MRF Upgrades ̶ Transfer stations –Automated collection ̶ Polystyrene densification –Communications REOI closes March 23 Still “Open for business” re: municipal plastics project work

5 5 CIF-supported plastics related projects NAPCOR project –Mike Schedler to provide update today EFS –Martin Vogt to present details at our next call Agreement among CIF/SO/EFS close to finalized EFS continuing to add supply –e.g., recent Hamilton agreement Short term (Phase 1) focus is adding film capacity Mid term (Phase 2) focus is mixed rigids Entropex Project –update from Guy Perry/StewardEdge

6 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality Michael Schedler NAPCOR Director of Technology March 2010 Michael Schedler NAPCOR Director of Technology March 2010

7 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 7 Presentation Outline NAPCOR & the Thermoformer Industry Market Data Recycling Program Plan & Activities Expectations

8 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 8 National Association for PET Container Resources Originally Bottle & Resin Producers Led by Pactiv, Placon & Genpak, membership opened to PET sheet / thermoformers in late 2007 NAPCOR membership currently reflects all parts of the PET Packaging industry

9 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 9 Associated Packaging Technologies Genpak LLC Global PET PWP Industries Pactiv Corporation Par-Pak LTD Peninsula Packaging Company Placon Corporation Sabert Corporation Solo Cup Operating Corp Current NAPCOR Sheet /Thermoformer Members

10 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 10 Thermoformer Council Objectives To position PET as the environmentally preferred thermoformed package of choice

11 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 11 Thermoformer Council Objectives Identify & remove the obstacles that prevent PET thermoformed packaging from being recycled Create recycling opportunities for the package that complements, not jeopardizes, the existing bottle infrastructure Increase the availability of post consumer RPET

12 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 12 Definition PET packaging other than bottles & jars, made from PET sheet.008 inch thickness or greater & that has the resin identification code #1 including, but not exclusively, clamshells, cups, trays, boxes & lids.

13 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 13 Market Data 1.4 billion lbs of packaging produced in Does not include imports MMlbs post consumer bottle RPET used in PET sheet production. Market growing rapidly due to natural growth & conversions from PS & PVC. BY 2011, could be half the size of PET bottle market.

14 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 14 The Challenge To re-create the infrastructure that will allow the PET thermoformed package the same recycling opportunities as the bottle in a fashion that is cost effective; acceptable to existing collection & intermediate processing operators; & does not jeopardize existing bottle recycling assets.

15 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 15 Reality Check For plastic packaging there is NO sustainability without recycling! There is no such thing, environmentally, as a polymer so good it can just be thrown out !

16 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 16 Why are PET thermoforms not currently being recycled with bottles? Look alike contaminants, particularly OPS, PLA as well as PVC Wide variability in Intrinsic Viscosity Other potential issues: - Package shapes - Direct printing - Different adhesives - Different additives - Flake geometry

17 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 17 Program Plan for Recycling Thermoformed Packages Target four streams of PET thermoformed packaging to develop reclamation capacity & end markets: Thermoforms manually removed from MRFs with autosort units. Mixed bottles & thermoforms from MRF with autosorts Mixed rigid bales Cups from arenas / stadiums with #1 recycling programs

18 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 18 Technical Support PET Bottle / Thermoformed Package Compatibility Study: Evaluation of three stream of thermoforms according to APR application protocols for fiber, sheet & bottle Convey data & observations to PET Reclaimers

19 Making PET Thermoformed Packaging Recycling a Reality 19 Expectations That US / Canadian market opportunities will be identified for MRFs producing: –Dedicated thermoform bales from autosorts –Bottle / Thermoform Bales from autosorts –Mixed rigid bales That end markets will be identified for the outputs from the above
