Arkema, a leader in specialty materials, announces a breakthrough in new manufacturing processes that integrate up to 40% post-consumer recycled content from end-of-life packaging products into its powder coating resins. This new technology will empower end markets to better respond to increasing societal expectations to preserve resources and reduce climate impact.

Powder coating resins is a solvent-free, low-waste technology, which can now be made more circular by including recycled content. Arkema’s new recycled based powder coating resin innovation uses post-consumer PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) coming from end-of-life packaging as an alternative to traditional fossil based raw materials to create products containing up to 40% recycled PET and reducing PCF (Product Carbon Footprint) by up to 20%.

"Alongside our Bio-based and Mass Balance offers, increasingly incorporating recycled feedstocks is another step towards ensuring more circular high-performance solutions and a more sustainable lifestyle. The new Arkema’s recycled based powder coating resins further enriches sustainable solutions for our partners, enabling end markets to increase the %recycled content of their finished products,” Richard Jenkins, SVP, Member of Executive Committee.
