Launch of recycled PLA grades / Partners sought to boost collection and sorting of post-use PLA
???This ability to now efficiently receive, repurpose and resupply PLA is a further demonstration of the sustainability of our product and the demonstration of our commitment to enable the circular economy through value chain partnership,??? said CEO Thomas Philipon.
Total Corbion plans to initially supply grades with 20% recycled content. Senior marketing director Fran??ois de Bie said rPLA ???will grow to be a significant part of our overall sales revenue??? as production ramps up.
The company anticipates that growing demand for rPLA will also boost the collection, sorting and reprocessing of post-use PLA for both mechanical and chemical recycling. De Bie said Total Corbion is actively seeking to buy more waste PLA and is looking for additional partners worldwide. Belgium???s Looplife (Hulshout; www.looplife-polymers.eu) and South Korea???s Sansu are among the first of Total Corbion???s partners to support the collection, sorting and cleaning of PLA waste.04.11.2021 Plasteurope.com [248881-0]
