plasgaardplantbasedadditive Palsgaard will present its complete portfolio of sustainable polymer additives and offer first-hand insight in new developments at the plastics trade fair, K 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Additives Serve as Anti-static Surfactants

In packaging plastics, Palsgaard’s Einar® additives serve as highly effective anti-fog and anti-static surfactants, dispersing aids, ageing modifiers, EPS coatings and mould release agents.

At K 2022, the company will introduce new plant-based innovations in its growing portfolio, developed and optimised at Palsgaard’s Polymer Application Centre in Denmark to help customers stay ahead of increasingly stringent regulations, such as on food-contact, without compromising performance or quality.

All of these products provide an excellent drop-in replacement for fossil-based additives in existing polymer formulations and have a perfect fit in new responsible packaging solutions. Palsgaard will also update K 2022 visitors on significant investments made into the future of its polymer additives business. The expansion of the company’s carbon-neutral production capacity is proceeding as scheduled.

Transformation from Linear to Circular Economy

As the plastics industry is transforming from a linear to a circular economy, there is a fast-growing demand for renewable alternatives to conventional fossil-based formulations,” says Ulrik Aunskjær, global business director, bio specialty additives at Palsgaard. After the successful commissioning of a new emulsifier pellet line with a capacity of 10,000 tonnes in 2020, the Juelsminde site will receive a state-of-the art spray tower, which is expected to go on-stream in the fourth quarter of 2023 and add 30,000 tonnes to Palsgaard’s existing spray capacity.

This will be complemented by multiple new reaction, distillation and esterification plants, altogether doubling the company’s overall production capacity by 2024. In addition, new sales offices in Brazil, the United States and China will strengthen the support of customers in these regions, as Palsgaard is delivering on its strategy to develop long-term close partnerships and grow its global service capacities.

Visit Palsgaard at K 2022 in Düsseldorf from October 19 through 26 in Hall 7, Level 1, Booth D20 to meet the company’s product and market specialists and discuss the sustainable benefits and superior performance of the company’s plant-based polymer additives.
