Creating a Circular Economy
Preview of SABIC´s K 2019 Innovations
“Making a world of difference together” is the theme under which SABIC will be addressing global trends by inspiring processes for using bio-renewable and recycled feedstock and designing product solutions for its customers in diverse industries which supports recyclability, durability and optimal reuse.
The manufacturing company has come one step closer to creating a circular economy by scaling up an innovative chemical recycling process of mixed plastic waste back to the original polymer, enabling downstream customers to develop high quality, recyclable product design solutions.
To further help reduce waste in the global supply, SABIC has created polymer solutions for the manufacture of pure, lightweight packaging to extend shelf life of food and other perishable goods. The company has also developed solutions to encourage the re-use and recycling of industrial packaging through innovative processes and partner collaborations.
SABIC’s material technologies are also enabling phthalate- and peroxide-free solutions for the nonwovens industry to advance purity, comfort and safety of personal hygiene products, while the latest resins are helping to combat bacteria in hospitals and make syringe barrels recyclable.
