Arkema Advances Circularity by Integrating up to 40% Recycled Content in its Powder Coating Resins

Arkema, a leader in specialty materials, announces a groundbreaking innovation in manufacturing processes. This new technology incorporates up to 40% post-consumer recycled content from end-of-life packaging into its powder coating resins. This advancement will enable end markets to more effectively meet growing societal demands for resource conservation and climate impact reduction.

Powder coating resins, a solvent-free and low-waste technology, can now become more circular by incorporating recycled content. Arkema's innovative recycled-based powder coating resin uses post-consumer PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) from end-of-life packaging as an alternative to traditional fossil-based raw materials. This process produces products containing up to 40% recycled PET and reduces the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) 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.” said Richard Jenkins SVP, Member of Executive Committee.
