Scenario: Greener Plastic Bottles
NEW PLASTIC: You discovered a new, greener way to make poly(ethylene terephthalate) PET plastic bottles (soda & water bottles).
PROCESS: The polymer product (chemical structure) is the same, but the process is greener than the existing process.
Your new process uses one monomer that is derived from a renewable resource, a highly active catalyst at a low level, and generates less waste. The final polymer structure is the same as the one made by the old process, so it still can be made into bottles and recycled in the same way as before.
COST: The new process will cost more initially, but as volumes of sales increase, the price will become lower than the polymer made by the old process.
