Helping Meet Your Sustainability Goals

Nexeo Plastics’ team of technical experts work with our customers to understand their sustainability targets, and help determine how they can be achieved. Whether it involves reducing part weight; improving the operational efficiencies in processing or using sustainably sourced thermoplastics, we work together to help come up with cost effective solutions.

Nexeo Plastics looks at sustainability goals from three different perspectives:

Design Requirements

Are there other ways to make parts thinner, while still meeting the same functional performance requirements, ultimately using less material?

Production and Manufacturing Processes

Can production processes be optimized to find untapped sustainability benefits that can lower the carbon footprint, such as reducing energy consumption and the material scrap rate?

Material Selection

Are their bio-based, recycled or renewable “green” thermoplastics that can be used to help meet your current and future application requirements?

Our Portfolio of “Green” Thermoplastics

Our line card of sustainable thermoplastics is rapidly expanding, as our global suppliers continue to develop more bio-based, recycled, compostable and renewable options.

Our portfolio of “green” thermoplastics, include:

  • Bio-based resins, including certified compostable polymer blends and polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and other materials that are sourced from sugarcane, grapeseed and other plant-based sources.
  • Recycled-content resins, including polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), polycarbonate (PC), nylon (PA 6 and PA 66) and other materials sourced from recycled plastics, commercial fishing nets and bailing twine.
  • Resins based on renewable content sourced from wood-based materials.

We have the technical resources and the materials expertise to help your company meet and even exceed your sustainability requirements on your next application. Please let us know how we can assist?
