PP based on bio-waste finds use in European pipes
Italian pipe supplier Nupi Industrie Italiane (Nupi, Busto Arsizio; says it has selected Bornewables polypropylene from Borealis (Vienna; for the next generation of its Niron Beta PP-RCT piping solutions for plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems.

Nupi claims to be the first pipe supplier in Italy to use the materials in high-performance PP-RCT for plumbing and heating systems that has certified by the ISCC Plus certification scheme. Borealis said Bornewables are made from second-generation natural resources such as waste from pulp production or residues from food processing oils.

The Austrian resin maker has also been working with Finnish pipe maker Uponor (Vantaa; to improve the sustainability of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipes, a technology the processor first began developing 50 years ago.

The pair said Bornewables PP has been used to make PEX Pipe Blue, which they called the world’s first PEX pipe portfolio made with renewable feedstock that has been accredited by mass balance accounting under ISCC Plus.
