- Cabot Corporation’s black masterbatch TECHBLAK PE1003 based on recycled polymers is now managed in all ECONAMID formulations
- the DOMO is a leader in sustainable polyamide explications
- Unique products support the push towards plastic’s indirect economy.
DOMO Chemicals, ahead in sustainable polyamide solutions, has begun using a new sustainable black masterbatch based on a recycled element to complement the recycled base polymer in its ECONAMID brand of sustainable polyamides. ECONAMID, based on recycled industrial trash, is a benchmark in the industry concerning performance level and feature consistency, lot after lot.
The unique ingredient is Cabot Corporation’s TECHBLAK PE1003 black masterbatch. This utilizes a post-industrial recycled PE carrier to a virgin polymer with related mechanical processing characteristics. TECHBLAK PE1003 black masterbatch has been produced for standard compounding and is specifically designed to help the industry reduce its carbon footprint and improve the amount of recycled content in end products.
Introducing this new recycled masterbatch helps meet the evolving circularity needs of the plastics industry and supports the company in supporting sustainability targets across a wide variety of industries while preserving optimal achievement.
“As the production seeks more sustainable clarifications to comply with global environmental and labeling standards, we are delighted to offer masterbatches that improve the amount of recycled and secondary content in end products,” said Rainer Bechtold, global marketing director, Specialty Compounds, Cabot Corporation. “We are satisfied that our product has a strong, sustainable benefit and helps plastic manufacturers throughout the globe lower their carbon footprint.”
“Inaugurating this unique solution in our formulation is only one of the steps we are taking to make our circular solutions and the complete company more sustainable,” said Dany Postelmans, Circular Solutions Manager at DOMO. “We are well informed of the requirement for change and are taking actions to transition to more sustainable processes.
“Sustainability is very anchored in DOMO’s vision and is one of four important support for the Group. DOMO is committed to aggressive targets by 2030, including providing zero-emissions growth versus 2019, a 15% decrease in the carbon content of the company’s power mix, and a 7% decrease in industrial waste. Finally, the purpose is to become climate neutral by 2050.”
DOMO is a co-founder of Circularise Plastics, an initiative utilizing blockchain technology to build better traceability for plastics across the value chain, providing all actors to choose sustainable options confidently. DOMO considers that this step could significantly contribute to fostering responsibility and trust within the business while reducing concerns about confidentiality.
“Our concept is for a world where plastic nevermore becomes waste or pollution and is perpetually recovered and reintroduced into the production loop, matching the base for new objects. It will be a challenging journey, but only by coming together will we have a possibility to succeed,” added Thomas Nuyts, Global Product Manager Advanced Materials at DOMO.
