To make performance materials sustainable, we’re initiating discussions that drive collaboration among colleagues, partners, or across the whole value chain. However, discussions are only the start of CHIMEI’s mission, and that’s why Ecologue™ exists: To convert dialogue into practical steps that improve the sustainability of performance materials.
The advantages of performance materials are undeniable. From food packaging, to medical equipment, to consumer electronics, they improve our quality of life and have become an indispensable part of our everyday lives. Therefore, to allow future generations to enjoy the benefits of these materials, we must maximize their sustainability. That’s why we’re rethinking our manufacturing processes and finding new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
We’re using recycled raw materials in our products to ensure they don’t end up as waste. With our technological expertise, we’re raising the bar for recycled products by improving their quality.
Through mechanical recycling, we recover end-of-life products and use them as raw materials. This is the most effective method for reducing plastic waste and virgin feedstock consumption. We also increase the durability of our recycled materials by ensuring they are excellent quality and demonstrate great mechanical properties.
For plastics that cannot be recycled mechanically, our chemical recycling process breaks them back down into monomers. These are combined to form new polymers that replace virgin materials, reducing our dependence on fossil feedstocks. As part of our chemical recycling efforts, we have successfully produced optical light guide plates using recycled MMA.
We’re developing bioplastics that are either made from bio-based resources or will decompose after use. As a result, these materials will reduce our waste and fossil fuel consumption.
We’re tackling sustainability from a more holistic point of view. With production innovations, we're thinking beyond raw materials and creating greener manufacturing processes.
CHIMEI’s Ecologue™ PCR ABS resin is a copolymer composed of styrene (SM), acrylonitrile (AN), and butadiene (BD), and contains post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials that have been mechanically recycled. Our expertise in ABS production and recycling technologies ensures that our PCR ABS maintains the same exceptional mechanical properties as its virgin equivalent. CHIMEI has built solid partnerships with qualified and licensed upstream suppliers to ensure a stable quality and supply of PCR. The material offers a high-gloss, ultra-high rigidity, tensile strength, and is well suited for use in home appliances, household items and office supplies. The environmental benefits of our PCR ABS resin are that it decreases virgin feedstock consumption and prevents plastic waste from ending up in the environment. Ecologue™ PCR ABS is compliant with TDS-ISO, SDS, RoHS, SVHC, and international standards for environmental protection.
CHIMEI’s Ecologue™ PCR FR-PC resin is a polycarbonate (PC) containing post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics recovered by mechanical recycling. By leveraging our expertise in PC production, CHIMEI’s PCR FR-PC displays physical properties equivalent to virgin PC resin, including excellent flame retardancy. This makes it ideal for electrical appliance manufacturers as it reduces the risk of their products catching fire. PCR FR-PC reduces the use of virgin PC resin and adds value to plastic waste by incorporating it back into the production line as a raw material. Ecologue™ PCR FR-PC is compliant with TDS-ISO, SDS, RoHS, SVHC, and international standards for environmental protection.
CHIMEI’s Ecologue™ PCR FR-PC/ABS is a blend of polycarbonate (PC) and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer (ABS), containing post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials recovered by mechanical recycling. Thanks to our extensive knowledge in PC and ABS production and technology, CHIMEI successfully produces PCR FR-PC/ABS with physical properties equivalent to virgin PC alloy. Most notable are its excellent heat resistance and halogen-free flame retardancy. CHIMEI also implements a strict quality management and supplier assessment system to ensure our materials are high quality and come from a reliable source. Our PCR FR-PC/ABS is suited to a wide range of applications, including consumer electronics like projectors, computers, communication equipment, etc. Ecologue™ PCR FR-PC/ABS is compliant with TDS-ISO, SDS, RoHS, SVHC and international standards for environmental protection.
