Masterbatch specialist Gabriel-Chemie (Gumpoldskirchen, Austria; says it has introduced a CO2-reduced white masterbatch for customers seeking to reduce their carbon footprint without compromising product function.

The company attributes the 10% reduction in carbon footprint to an optimised formulation, and the use of raw materials with a reduced carbon footprint. Also, the material is produced at the company’s Austrian site where 100% of the energy comes from renewable resources, such as a self-regulated photovoltaic system. The white masterbatch meets EU and FDA approval, the company adds.

Gabriel-Chemie also recently expanded its Maxithen line of products with two new brands that it claims are sustainable. The MaxiLoop line, based on recycled polymers or products that increase recyclability, has NIR detectable products, as well as those for optical brightness, compatibilisers, and antioxidants.

And the MaxiBlue line of masterbatches targets natural products and combines climate friendly, biogenic alternatives or polymers from chemical recycling as carrier polymers, the masterbatch specialist says. Products in this line include biogenic polyolefins, PLA and PHA, and natural pigments.
