Borcycle™ post-consumer recycled (PCR) solutions: Value-added solutions with enhanced sustainability
Borealis is helping its automotive partners raise the share of recycled plastics in vehicles
Borealis is helping its automotive partners raise the share of recycled plastics in vehicles by developing innovative polyolefin-based solutions that are composed of both virgin and increased post-consumer recyclate (PCR) content levels.
Borealis was one of the first virgin polyolefin suppliers to launch under its Daplen™ brand a range of dedicated polypropylene (PP) compound solutions which included PCR for use in automotive applications. The trusted Daplen portfolio, which includes three proven high-quality compounds developed in Europe, has now been rebranded as Borcycle™ ME2220SY, Borcycle™ MD2550SY and Borcycle™ MD3230SY. Underscoring our global supply capacity, Borealis Brasil also launched three additional grades for the South American market: Borcycle™ MG1490SYB, Borcycle™ MG2690SYB and Borcycle™ MG4490SYB.
Borealis’ customers and partners can rely on the availability of ready-made, high-end grades that deliver key advantages:
- Delivers performance equivalent to 100%-virgin PP grades
- Full support from Borealis technical service and modelling and simulation teams to bring these grades into serial production, substituting virgin PP grades
- Offers ready availability at consistent high quality, thus allowing for high volume production
- Supports OEMs in achieving their sustainability goals through the use of PCR in automotive parts
