Plastics are created through the polymerisation or polycondensation of natural elements such as cellulose, coal, natural gas, salt, and crude oil.
Natural, organic resources such as cellulose, coal, natural gas, salt, and, of course, crude oil are used to make plastics. Crude oil is a complicated mixture of thousands of components that must be refined before usage.
Plastic production begins with the distillation of crude oil in an oil refinery. This process separates heavy crude oil into groups of lighter components known as fractions.
Each fraction is a combination of hydrocarbon chains (chemical compounds composed of carbon and hydrogen) with varying molecular sizes and structures.
The most important of these fractions is naphtha.Polymerisation and polycondensation are the two main processes used to make plastics, and both require specialised catalysts.
Monomers such as ethylene and propylene are joined together to produce lengthy polymer chains in a polymerisation reactor. Depending on the basic monomers employed, each polymer has its own set of characteristics, structure, and size.
The Namibia Plastics Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Only a few months after the official inauguration of its production plant, Namibia Plastics is already making progress toward its aim of completely eliminating plastic product imports.
The Windhoek Lager packaging has been an import service for many years, but will now be manufactured locally as a result of Namibia Plastics’ acquisition of the new Comexi F2 flexible packaging printer – a machine that, is a first of its kind in the country, and is the ideal start to realising the country’s plastic manufacturing dream “If Namibian businesses trust in one another, join hands, and support one another, as a nation and as Business Namibia can compete internationally by creating world-class, excellent products domestically.
Namibia Plastics was awarded the contract due to NBL’s strict quality demands, as well as the O&L Group’s commitment to conducting business in an environmentally friendly manner.
