Styrenics giant Ineos Styrolution (Frankfurt / Germany; has introduced the first “Novodur Eco” speciality ABS grades that contain mechanically recycled post-consumer waste and offer mechanical properties identical to virgin resin equivalents.

The two Novodur Eco grades introduced are drop-in solutions to virgin materials with similar properties and are suited to automotive applications such as centre consoles, radiator grills or mirror housings, as well as household applications. Novodur Eco speciality ABS contains up to 70% recycled material while the “Novodur Eco High Heat” grade contains up to 40% recycled material. Ineos Styrolution exhibited the first test applications with the PCR speciality styrenics at the “Plastics in Automotive Engineering Conference” in Mannheim / Germany.

Very recently, Ineos Styrolution had expressed the plans to lift the force majeure for its ABS brand “Terluran” from its Antwerp / Belgium plant (see of 30.08.2021), thus hoping to provide much-needed relief to the chronically undersupplied ABS market.
