CELANESE AND MITSUBISHI TEAM UP ON RECYCLED POM

Celanese and Mitsubishi Chemical will collaborate to develop recycling solutions for polyoxymethylene (POM), according to a recent press release.

The plan will serve to satisfy demand for recycled content and “carbon dioxide reductions.”

The joint endeavour will see the development of mechanical recycling for both post-industrial and post-consumer source of POM.

In 2020, Celanese introduced a mass-balanced, bio-based POM. Named POM ECO-B, it provides customers with the benefit of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. POM ECO-B remains commercially available.

The collaboration with Mitsubishi will see the development of a recycled content option of up to 30 percent, named POM ECO-R.

Bio-based POM content and recycled POM makes POM an ideal engineered material to meet sustainability goals, said Tom Kelly, Celanese Senior Vice President, Engineered Materials.
