Circular economy

ELIX Polymers advances chemical recycling. The company has developed products using chemically recycled materials, achieving up to 100% sustainable feedstocks.

This initiative is part of its E-LOOP brand, focusing on Circular Plastics and Responsible Innovation within its Sustainable Portfolio Solutions.

The company’s chemically recycled (CR) products are produced using certified sustainable raw materials, including circular and bio-based feedstocks, certified by ISCC+ standards.

This approach utilizes a mass balance model to ensure the traceability and transparency of the supply chain.

ELIX has succeeded in creating CR products that can completely substitute traditional feedstocks with sustainable alternatives for all three primary monomers (Acrylonitrile, Butadiene, Styrene).

This shift can lead to reductions in CO2 emissions of more than 90% compared to standard prime grades.

The CR grade products are applicable across ELIX Polymers’ full range, accommodating even the most stringent requirements for food contact, light colors, and medical parts, maintaining the same material properties as conventional products.
