SABIC to Launch Recycled Ocean Bound Plastics Portfolio

SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, has announced the launch of a new recycled material made from ocean bound plastic which has been recovered from ocean-feeding waterways and inland areas within a 50 kilometer radius of the ocean. The ocean bound material is mechanically recycled and converted into components for new consumer goods and electronics applications, such as TV remote controls and electronic razors. It has the potential to also be used in other industries in the future, such as automotive.
Part of SABIC’S TRUCIRCLE portfolio and services, the new recycled material is a XENOY PC/PET compound comprising of a minimum 10% recycled ocean bound PET blended with polycarbonate.
According to an internal SABIC LCA Study based on a resin grade comprising 20% recycled content, for every 1kT of product containing the ocean bound recycled XENOY PC/PET compound, an equivalent of 24 million single-use 0.5liter PET water bottles can potentially be diverted away from our oceans, preventing them from becoming marine litter.
The new material, part of SABIC’s engineering thermoplastics (ETP) product range, offers potentially significant reductions in carbon footprint of up to 7% and energy consumption of up to 11% compared to its virgin grade. It has good impact strength, processability and chemical resistance.
