Sabic's polymers from post-consumer waste used in plastic household goods / Reusable on-the-go coffee cups
US plastic household goods manufacturer Tupperware Brands (Orlando, Florida; www.tupperware.com) will begin introducing certified “circular” polymers manufactured by Saudi Arabian petrochemicals giant Sabic (Riyadh; www.sabic.com) into new products from summer 2019. The products to be launched include a portable reusable straw and an on-the-go coffee cup, which Tupperware said will help in the reduction of single-use plastic products.

Bill Wright, Tupperware Brands' executive vice president, product innovation and supply chain, commented, “The introduction of this new material, and the products in which they will be used, reflect our continued dedication to further reduce our environmental footprint at all levels of the product lifecycle – from design, production and distribution to products' use and reusability – and also reflects our heritage of innovation and sustainable design.” Sabic added that the collaboration highlights a shared commitment by both companies to advance a more circular economy where plastics waste and materials are used, reused and repurposed to continue their lifecycle.

Sabic's polymers are produced by chemical recycling of mixed plastics waste. At the start of 2019, the plastics producer announced partnerships with Plastic Energy (London / UK; www.plasticenergy.com), among others – see Plasteurope.com of 14.12.2018 and 29.01.2019). The polymers are produced at Sabic's plant in Geleen / The Netherlands.
