Plastics circularity in appliances: Borcycle™ recycling technology produces improved recyclate

Plastics circularity in appliances

Polyolefins circularity is getting an enormous boost thanks to the Borealis technology, Borcycle, which turns polyolefin-based waste streams into recyclate material such as pellets. As a transformative technology, it complements the existing Borealis virgin polyolefins portfolio with a range of pioneering, circular solutions. It unites state-of-the-art technology with the profound Borealis polymer expertise gained over decades.

Borcycle™ MF1981SY is one of the first launches of recycled polyolefin (rPO). This compound is an especially valuable addition to our rPO portfolio because it is 10% talc-filled and contains over 80% recycled material. It offers an ideal balance between stiffness and impact. The compound is especially suited for use in visible black parts, for example in small appliances. MF1981SY is available to Borealis customers in Europe.

Borealis is the first raw material supplier to have published a position paper for the appliances industry in support of the EU circular economy policy.
