SABIC introduces LNP™ ELCRIN™ iQ upcycled compounds to extend useful life of PET bottles and help reduce plastic waste

SABIC introduces LNP™ ELCRIN™ iQ upcycled compounds to extend useful life of PET bottles and help reduce plastic waste.SABIC today introduced its LNP™ ELCRIN™ iQ portfolio of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) compounded resins derived from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) to support the circular economy and help reduce plastic waste. By chemically upcycling consumer-discarded PET (primarily single-use water bottles) into higher-value PBT materials with enhanced properties and suitability for more-durable applications, the company is encouraging the use of recycled resins. These products also offer a smaller cradle-to-gate environmental footprint than virgin PBT resin, as measured by Cumulative Energy Demand (CED) and Global Warming Potential (GWP).
