Spain’s Elix Polymers, a global supplier of specialty ABS materials, is showcasing its new sustainable E-Loop products and services at the Fakuma 2023 show to be held in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on Oct. 17 to 21. Elix has placed all of its circular economy activities under the E-Loop brand name with two strategic programs from Elix Sustainable Portfolio Solutions: Circular Plastics and Responsible Innovation. At Fakuma, the company will introduce its most effective circular solutions and innovations under the E-Loop brand and the motto, “Let’s close the loop,” at stand 5003 in hall B5.
Products with mechanically recycled content — E-Loop H801 MR, E-Loop Ultra 4105 MR, and E-Loop PC/ABS 5120 MR — will be displayed at the Elix stand. These products have properties equivalent to the traditional prime versions with a 29% reduction in CO2 emissions. Several premium automotive OEMs have approved the materials: They have been validated by important tiers and are already being used for demanding interior and exterior automotive applications.
E-Loop CR products are manufactured from sustainable certified raw materials that include circular and bio-based feedstocks. These products are certified under ISCC+, and a mass balance model is used to ensure traceability and transparency in the whole supply chain. Different combinations of feedstocks are possible, as there are different sources for the three main monomers — fossil-fuel-based feedstocks, chemically recycled post-consumer waste, and bio-based feedstocks. Depending on the final mix of monomers, up to 60% CO2-emission reductions can be achieved compared to prime grades.
Elix Polymers was the first ABS producer to receive UL yellow cards for its E-Loop products with certified raw materials, as requested by customers from the electrical and electronics and consumer goods segments.
