High performance polymers enabling a new circular plastics economy
Plastics are core to today’s world and are vital in our daily activities, but single-use plastics have created a pollution problem that is dangerous to marine life, filling land-fills and impacting human life throughout the world. Today, fewer than 15% of all plastics used in the world are recycled. The longevity of plastics is a negative attribute when they enter our natural world uncontrollably creating disastrous, long lasting effects.
Changing the way, we create, use and reuse plastics is key to their continued viability and growth. At Aquapak, we are at the forefront of the new plastics economy initiatives, using our proprietary technology to develop and manufacture sustainable plastics. Our advanced polymer, HydropolTM, is specifically formulated to generate high performance properties for a range of technical applications while having a range of end of life options depending on the application and inherently non toxic. HydropolTM‘s strength and flexibility makes it valuable for many types of applications in the food manufacturing and medical markets, as well as an ideal choice for high performance packaging.
Aquapak’s Strategy Advancing the Circular Economy
