Recognizing that recycling is the foundation of a circular economy, Clariant Masterbatches and its Packaging Market group, is mobilizing considerable resources to help ensure that an ever higher percentage of plastic pac“Today’s recycling efforts have an important impact on plastics in the environment,” says Alessandro Dulli, Clariant Masterbatches Global Head of Packaging, “and it is still only a beginning. We can recover – we must recover – much, much greater volumes and turn the vast amount of packaging waste into new raw material. To do that, we need to overcome major challenges around the capabilities of proper sorting of waste to produce a high-quality PCR [post-consumer recyclate], and around issues related to coloration, stabilization, product safety and process stability. At Clariant, we are committed to bringing our knowledge in chemistry, applications and markets to bear on the problem. Clariant can provide a full portfolio CESA additive masterbatches, as well as RENOL® & REMAFIN® color solutions, to help overcome today’s most critical recycling challengeskaging is recycled.
