Mechanical recycling of ABS

Building the best recycled ABS in the world

We enable a circular economy for ABS through mechanical recycling resulting in unparalleled quality products

ABS is a styrenics material that, due to its light weight, helps conserve energy and reduces fuel consumption in the automotive industry, reduces energy consumption by insulating buildings, and protects electronic equipment with aesthetic and durable housings.

To make sure this valuable material is not wasted and disposed after one use, we have optimised a process called mechanical recycling. This is a method by which industrial or post-consumer waste is physically processed back into pellets, without changing the basic chemical structure of the material.

Mechanical recycling: a proven technology that works for various styrenics polymers

Using our expertise, experience and research capabilities as the global leader in styrenics, we produce
high-quality recycled ABS that performs as well as non-recycled ABS grades.

Our customers benefit from unparalleled performance with no downcycling – and are closer to
meeting their sustainability targets.
