Recycled Polymers & Recyclability
Materials that have been reprocessed from post-consumer and post-industrial sources, plus materials that can aid recyclability.
You need solutions that:
• Encourage single polymer solutions, rather than multi-layer
• Can help to reduce carbon footprint
• Can help to reduced the use of petrochemical resources
• Encourage involvement in a circular economy
• Reuses valuable PCR and PIR
• Reduces volume of plastics going to landfill
• Enhances public perception
• Are compliant with current and upcoming legislation
• Helps to reduce down cycling
We can offer:
• A variety of recycled products from carefully selected and screened suppliers
• Polymers containing a proportion of PCR or PIR derived as part of a circular economy
• Advice on the correct design and use of traditional polymers
Materials containing recyclate
Rialti, with more than thirty years of experience, has established itself as market leader in the European polypropylene compounds industry for injection moulding and extrusion grades. They use their expertise to create polypropylene compounds from industrial manufacturing scrap and post-consumer waste.
Total’s commitment towards a circular economy has seen a range of high performance polypropylene & polyethelene grades become available. These materials contain up to 95% of post consumer recycled content and feature equivalent or improved properties when compared with virgin polymer.
By converting organic household waste into sustainable bio-based materials, UBQ™ is a novel climate positive innovation that can be used for the manufacturing of thousands of products. It is clean, sustainable, cost-effective and recyclable.
Sustainable materials that can enhance recyclability
Aquapak produces multi-functional polymers that promote good cycling and the circular economy. All of their products are designed to eliminate plastic pollution at source as they are water-soluble and biodegrade safely into water, carbon dioxide and mineralised natural biomass.
Lactips produce water soluble and biodegradable thermoplastic pellets based on milk protein that can be used as a raw material for thermoforming, film and injection moulding applications.
