Saudi Arabia – Sabic recently outlined intentions for its Trucircle initiative to help close the loop on plastic recycling with global business figures and policy makers at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Sabic’s Trucircle solutions encompasses the company’s circular materials and technologies including certified circular polymers from the chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste; certified bio-based renewable polymers; new polycarbonate (PC) based on certified renewable feedstock; and mechanical recycled polymers.

Yousef Al-Benyan, Sabic Vice Chairman and CEO, said: “Sabic is moving forward with a semi-commercial facility that will increase the production of pyrolysis oil from plastic waste. We expect this facility, located at Sabic’s Geleen campus in The Netherlands, will be operational by 2021.”

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

The output from the facility will initially provide materials for Sabic’s downstream collaborators but the long term intention is to rapidly scale up the supply of its certified circular polymers for all global customers.

The company’s commitment to using more plastic waste as feedstock for its circular polymers runs parallel to its 2020 ambition to increase the uptake of recycled plastic from mechanical recycling. Sabic is determined to increase the amount of plastic it processes in Europe to 200Kt by 2025, in line with an EU Commission pledge.

The firm has also been actively collaborating in international initiatives that can improve the circularity of material usage and unlock new sustainability opportunities.
