ChemCycling®: plasticizer portfolio
ChemCycling® is the name of a chemical recycling project launched by BASF with the aim to manufacture products from chemically recycled plastic waste on an industrial scale. BASF cooperates with technology partners, who use a thermochemical process called pyrolysis to transform plastic waste (either mixed plastic waste or end-of-life tires) into a secondary raw material (pyrolysis oil). This oil is fed into BASF’s production network (Verbund) at the beginning of the value chain, thereby saving fossil resources. The share of recycled material is attributed to products manufactured in the Verbund by using a third-party audited mass balance approach.
The resulting products which carry the name suffix “Cycling®” have the exact same properties as those manufactured from fossil feedstock. Our customers can therefore further process them in the same way as conventionally manufactured products and use them in demanding applications.
The following product from the plasticizer portfolio is also available as Ccycled® product:
