Biobased Solutions


Due to the growing awareness for a more circular economy, the industry is now on a constant lookout for renewable feedstocks and recycling solutions.

Biobased additives and polymers are being increasingly used now but there is still scope for improvement for their use in demanding applications and there is a need to find new solutions for end-of-life challenges.

Recycling of plastics is the need of the hour and researchers and companies alike are investing their time for new ways of recycling, like using NIR-sortable additives and masterbatches or using more recycled content in the polymers.
