With the volume of recycled plastic predicted to increase by 300% by 2040, Broadway’s new product development team maintains its focus on supporting the use of PCR (post-consumer recycled plastic). The materials and additives manufacturer has announced a new odour-neutralising additive specifically aimed at eliminating, not masking, undesirable aromas in recycled plastic products.

The Norwegian company Oldroyd is an expert for the membrane and its injection-moulded fixing product. It uses CX machines from KraussMaffei and 100% sea plastics. The tunnel enclosures for the traffic are more complex than one might think because a sophisticated membrane system lies behind the pipes visible to the driver. This system prevents water from penetrating the soil and causing damage to the concrete.

ALBIS is expanding its comprehensive portfolio of sustainable solutions to include engineering plastics from BASF’s new lowPCF product portfolio (low Product Carbon Footprint).
These are products whose physical and chemical properties are identical to tried-and-tested fossil-based solutions, but at the same time, have at least a 30% lower CO2 footprint and work as drop-in solutions.

9th icis world conference
The 9th ICIS World Polyolefins Conference is just around the corner — an exciting event that brings together senior-level executives, market experts and industry innovators from across the polymer and chemical community.
Taking place in Vienna, Austria, from 29th - 30th March, 2023, the conference promises a wealth of knowledge and insights from the industry’s foremost experts.
There are a lot of ways to reduce how much material is in your automotive parts—some easier than others. In this blog from RJG, we go through 9 of them.
Ways such as changing material type, performing mould simulations and utilising processing technology.
If you’re looking to implement smart factory technology you’re not alone.
Digitising your factory can be very cost-effective, and potentially low cost too. It’s not a capex expenditure, so potentially easier to find the budget. And most importantly you are likely to see a substantial ROI within weeks.
