Kraton Corporation’s Additives For Circular Plastic Recycling

Updated : 26-Aug-2020

Stakeholders

CirKular+™

The CirKular+™ additives enable a holistic approach to the plastic product life cycle and the circular economy. Fully processable additives enable upcycling of post-consumer resin through enhancement of mechanical properties and the modified resins show better reusability after undergoing multiple cycles of mechanical recycling due to minimal degradation of physical properties in comparison to the unmodified resins.

Sustainability Benefits

  • Enables circular economy
  • Multi-resin virgin and recycled streams compatibility
  • Lower carbon footprint
  • Raw material complexity reduction

USP

  • Superior mechanical performance
  • Proven packaging durability

How does this work?

 

  • CirKular+ are reprocessable additives that allows for reuse of recycled plastic through upcycling of post consumer resin and industrial waste streams, including typically non-compatible materials and difficult-to-recycle engineering polymers.
  • The additives can be used to increase product recyclability in post consumer resin and industrial plastic recycling streams, bioplastics and a combination of virgin and recycled plastic materials.
