Sustainable ABS grades with lower carbon footprint
US resin maker Trinseo (Berwyn, Pennsylvania; has launched a more sustainable version of its Magnum ABS grades for automotive applications. Magnum BIO ABS combines fossil-based polymers with renewable raw materials during polymerisation, which results in a resin with up to 80% bio-attributed content.

Material production is based on a mass balance approach certified by International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC, Trinseo incorporates renewable, second-generation waste such as used kitchen oil and residue from the pulp industry in its process, which become structurally and functionally identical in chemical composition to its fossil-based counterpart during feedstock cracking. This allows the resultant material to be used with existing tooling and equipment under the same processing conditions without requalification, while offering a significantly lower carbon footprint.

Trinseo recently created a Sustainability Business & Services unit to leverage technologies that support its sustainability initiatives and 2030 sustainability goals.
