DAVOS, SWITZERLAND: Sabic has announced together with its customers Unilever, Vinventions and Walki Group, the launch of certified circular polymers to be manufactured by Sabic. They are planned to be used by its customers for packaging solutions for a variety of consumer products that will be introduced into the market in 2019.

The certified circular polymers will be produced from a feedstock known as TACOIL – a patented product from UK based plastic energy ltd from the recycling of low quality, mixed plastic waste destined for incineration or landfill. Sabic will process this feedstock on its production site at Geleen in The Netherlands. The finished certified circular polymers will then be supplied to the three key customers to use in their development of pioneering, high quality and safe consumer packaging.

This will create a new value chain, where Sabic, its upstream supplier and key downstream customers work side-by-side to upcycle mixed plastic waste back to the original polymer for packaging applications.

As global brand leaders or frontrunners in their respective areas, Unilever, Vinventions and Walki recognise the importance of sustainability and their role in the circular economy.

“Today, more than ever, sustainability is a core value which drives our advanced scientific and technological expertise and our pioneering spirit. Along with our eminent customers, we are proud to launch our certified circular polymers which is further testament to our leadership in advancing the circular economy,” said Yousef Al-Benyan, vice chairman and CEO, Sabic.
