FRANCE: Arkema & Agiplast partner for program to recycle high-performance polymers
Arkema's technical polymers business, in partnership with Agiplast, announces a new regeneration program to recycle high-performance polyamides and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) fluoropolymers. Arkema's new Virtucycle recycling program represents a virtuous cycle that enables customers to partner with Arkema in open-loop and closed-loop initiatives for postindustrial and post-consumer recycling projects for its specialty polymers.
"Arkema is in the perfect position to play the role of matchmaker in the latest step of our sustainability journey," said Erwoan Pezron, global group president of the technical polymers business line. "We are able to pair companies (on a case-by-case basis) who are looking for a second life for their scraps or end-oflife products with companies who want to source recycled specialty polymers."
