Styrenics producer Ineos Styrolution has obtained RecyClass certification for its sustainable mechanically recycled ECO grades, the company announced earlier today.
Both its Terluran ECO MR and Novodur ECO MR grades have now earned Recycled Plastics Traceability certification, confirming the post-consumer origin of the waste used in the production of the respective products and guaranteeing the origins and traceability of recycled material. This is founded on the percentage-based recycled content calculation approach that is verified throughout the entire value chain and ensured via the Chain of Custody ISO 22095 as well as the Recycled Plastics EN 15353:2006 standards, on which the certification is based. The transparency of the scheme is additionally warranted via the system of the third-party certification audits.
Ineos’ Terluran ECO GP-22 MR50 and MR70 incorporating 50% and 70% recycled content, respectively, provide a drop-in solution for existing ABS applications and represent a significant step forward towards a circular economy. A selection of applications made from these mechanically recycled Terluran ECO materials will be exhibited at Ineos Styrolution’s booth at the K show in Düsseldorf in October, said Louie Mackee, Commercial Product Manager for Sustainable Products.
The company’s speciality Novodur ABS solutions come in a range of colours, as do their ECO MR counterparts. A product for self-colouring is available as well. Offering plug-in solutions, these Novodur grades are available with a 30% to 70% post-consumer mechanically recycled content; the individual grades come with a significantly reduced product carbon footprint of up to 57%.
