Clariant的新“合作交响曲”正在K2019上播放一首新的曲调,以创新和协作的可持续性和循环塑料经济。
从气候变化和饥饿到海洋健康和森林砍伐,我们在21世纪面临的全球问题需要全球解决方案。而且,正如研究一遍又一遍地发现的那样,创新和协作都是关键。正如世界经济论坛所描述的那样,当前的“行动合作革命”,它以多种形式引发了非政府组织,社区,政府和商业伙伴关系。
对于全球塑料废物挑战和专业化学公司而言,情况同样如此Clariant宣布了一项新的计划 - “合作交响乐”,以促进合作伙伴关系并创建更可持续的塑料行业。
我们知道,塑料是我们现代,全球化的生活不可或缺的一部分,但其可持续性越来越受到关注。在这种情况下,以及当前不断增长的协作动力,Clariant’s“协作交响乐”认识到,监管机构,行业和社会有责任更加紧密地推动设计和创新,减少塑料的减少,再利用和回收。
在K2019,Clariant将阐明协作可持续性项目以及其背后的产品,以支持市场将采用的解决方案的开发,并特别关注回收。这包括Clariant’sMasterbatches Business Unit imagining a future where design for recycling, reuse, biodegradable polymers and bio-based polymers give customers what they need, the company’s Additives research teams working to increase the use of renewable materials in stabilizers, antioxidants, odor scavengers, compatibilizers, processing aids and lubricants, and the Business Unit Pigments working on colour in plastic packaging in a circular economy world.
作为新包装,回收已经在回收大量塑料废物,以重新引入市场,但是对于增加消费后树脂(PCR)的使用仍然存在重大挑战。
A key priority is to ensure the attractiveness of virgin PET and, at K2019,Clariant将启动一个新的色母粒宠物注定the food and beverage market. The patented oxygen scavenger is based on a new molecule that goes beyond existing solutions for PET in protecting content shelf life and taste. It’s proving a real success in initial customer trials, offering the potential to address a number of challenges for packaging producers in one solution.

Working together to solve the problems that matter
Also at K2019,Clariant将揭示其一些蓬勃发展的伙伴关系的结果,这些伙伴关系已经取得了一些突破性的结果。

For example, together with the Finnish oil refining company,, which is passionate about giving fat residues and discarded cooking oils a second life,Clariant一直在探索使用源自这种废物的可再生烃的机会。

与另一个合作伙伴有关近红外(NIR)扫描仪,该公司开发了新的色素,用于黑色塑料的色彩,可以通过NIR分类设备来识别。该新系列可用于各种聚合物(例如聚烯,PET,PA),以及包装和E&E等应用,为品牌所有者和MasterBatch生产商提供新的机会。

在进一步的合作驱动器中,Clariant目前将其Ecotain可持续性标签授予了200多种产品的投资组合。Ecotain被扩展到包括生态蛋白合作伙伴关系,这些伙伴关系将促进价值链中至少三个合作伙伴之间的合作,推动环境保护和循环经济。在K 2019上Clariant将向公司发出公开邀请,以团结起来并专门在回收的一个特别具有挑战性的方面进行合作。
Opening dialogues from science to solutions
对于任何政党而言,全球塑料挑战的复杂性太大了,无法独自解决,“合作交响曲”将开放对话和刺激创新。Clariant’sRichard Haldimann, Head of Innovation Excellence and Business Incubator, said that the company is proud to be fostering these partnerships across the value chain, from producer to recycler.
Haldimann commented, “We’ve learned from experience that the wider problem can’t be solved at an individual company level. It’s a system problem and collaboration is key.”
Inevitably, as we push the boundaries of current thinking, there will be bumps in the road and we will all need to keep our focus. What is clear is that advancing plastics through dedicated cooperation will be critical if we want to scale up solutions that have real impact.
Clariant believes collaboration is the best way to find the optimal solutions for the recycling challenge of its customers, increasing the attractiveness and functionality of post-consumer and post-industrial recyclate, and they believe that their initial partnerships are proof that working together works.
Clariant将在10月16日至23日在德国杜塞尔多夫(Düsseldorf)(Hall 8a Booth J11)揭示其背后的几次激动人心的合作以及其背后的可持续产品以及其生态因素的计划。展会前可用见解和更新 www.clariant.com/K2019
