SABIC OFFERS BIO-BASED VERSIONS OF ALL NORYL™ RESIN GRADES TO FURTHER ADVANCE THE BIOECONOMY OF PLASTICS
Sustainability at every stage of production is becoming very important, either through government pushes or voluntary initiatives. SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, has launched multiple products in the Noryl (PPE) product family that are bio-based. The use of biobased PPE resin feedstocks certified under International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS provides properties comparable to their fossil-based counterparts, i.e., a drop-in replacement. The certification and availability of multiple grades will allow customers to tailor their material choices according to specific sustainability targets.
The initial focus would be on the electrical components (renewable energy, housing/ enclosures, etc.), and heating/ ventilation/ air conditioning (HVAC), among others. Further, it can be translated into other industries such as consumer electronics, automotive, etc.
