2MILA SRL EXPANDS ITS OFFER OF SUSTAINABLE POLYMERS
The trend “towards Bio” will never stop. The recent decisions taken by the European Community confirms this statement.
The need to reduce CO2 emissions is a proposal that must be faced with perseverance and determination by all players working with plastics, from producers to converters and to end users (OEM).
We know that fossil thermoplastic materials have on board an amount of CO2e that in some cases exceeds even 5 times the weight of the raw material itself.
This problem (CO2) can be addressed in different ways and all of them have their own logic and benefit.
You can, for example, recover industrial waste (simple) or post-consumer waste (complex) and replace with them part of the virgin materials. Recycling is a great way to achieve a reduction of emissions.
You can also offset the CO2 released into the environment by planting new trees or by purchasing environmental certificates from more virtuous companies.
Or you can start using polymers whose origin is partially, or completely, from renewable sources. This solution is the most effective and will be one of the most adopted in the medium run.
In line with its philosophy of solving partner, willing to help customer companies in this transition phase “towards bio”, 2Mila Srl has recently signed a commercial collaboration agreement with the French company Natureplast, for the promotion of their range of Biobased Polyamides. Materials with green carbon content from 60% to 100%.
This family of Polyamides includes PA 6.10, 10.10 and 11 versions, suitable for both injection molding and extrusion.
The novelty lies in the new bioPA 6.10 and 10.10, which express technical characteristics very close to their brothers, the PA6 and PA66 based on fossil origin.
The new bioPAs are introducing in the overall picture of sustainability two important variables: the lower content of CO2e per ton of raw material produced and the perfect recyclability at the end of life, in line with the fossil versions.
Although not degradable or compostable, they respond perfectly to the need for an increase of the circularity, required by the European Community.
In the table below, we have highlighted some technical features of the new bioPAs (green columns) and compared them with the typical performances of standard fossil products.
Also the technical performances of the new Natureplast bioPA11 are in line with those already known and appreciated.
The biobased solutions, non-degradable and non-compostable, are the perfect expression of the evolutionary phase our polymers world is going through.
“This collaboration is part of the objectives of our company and strengthens our position of prepared and attentive interlocutor towards change, which distinguishes us.
The deep experience gained over the years in the field of application development will allow us to help our customers, mainly converters and designers, in their daily effort to better master the transition to sustainability of their products for their customers,” said Mr. Ceccolini, CEO of 2Mila Srl.
