ExxonMobil’s “green” footprint will extend far and wide during K 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Oct. 19 to 26, with at least 60 collaborations with OEMs on display throughout the show.

Spotlighting its theme “Advancing Sustainable Solutions,” ExxonMobil will exhibit technology that runs the gamut from materials to create simpler films to lubricants that increase the efficiency of hydraulic systems. Other technologies covering multiple applications — including automotive, consumer products, agriculture, and hygiene — will be on tap.

For example, the company’s Exxtend technology for advanced recycling of plastic waste broadens the range of plastics that can be recycled, producing certified circular polymers that match the performance of virgin resins. Additionally, the company’s performance polymers allow more use of mechanically recycled material and improve overall performance.

To improve recyclability, ExxonMobil’s mono-material offerings, including PP/PE laminates, reduce the presence of difficult-to-recycle components. And, converters can approach film design differently by employing ExxonMobil Exceed S PE polymers, which offer degrees of stiffness and toughness in thinner gauges and are easy to process.

For medical applications, ExxonMobil PP, Vistamaxx performance polymers, and Exact plastomers have recently won certification for use in syringes, springs, IV bags, and bottles.

Reducing energy consumption during production is another priority the company will showcase. Its Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series hydraulic oil increases pump efficiency up to 6% compared with standard hydraulic fluids and lasts longer to extend intervals between oil changes.

ExxonMobil will help attendees navigate all its exhibits by providing details and directions at its information hub at the north entrance No. 11.
