What is PET

07/17/05 | by JAdP | Categories: General Thoughts, HonorTagPersonal, Science

Just to help out a fellow Coastsider, wiki(Polyethylene_terephthalate,PET) is PolyEthyleneTerephthalate. Steve, follow the link to wikipedia, and then keep following links until you finally get to an hint of an answer to the question you raised in "Recycling". &#59;)

Right. I know what PET is. And Wikipedia sez

PET plastics are coded with the number 1 which is found inside the universal recycling symbol, usually located on the bottom of the container.end quotation

Since L’Oreal is using a non-standard icon to indicate something about their packaging, how are consumers supposed to know what to do with it? Why aren’t they prepared to address or resolve this? Who knows what happens down the chain in the recycling process? Maybe some material handler will reject it for the non-standard icon? As consumers, we have no idea, and there’s no reason for a manufacturer to be so darn lame about it!

Yes, odd. And when I made the post, the tracback received an acknowledgement from Steve’s blog.

We’ll have to get together at A Coatal Affair, I mean Café Luca and chat about it.

And we really have to figure out what in our CSS is causing the first comment to have white space to the bottom of the left and right columns. |-|

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
