SABIC Chairman, Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Jarbou, and Vice Chairman & CEO Yousef Al-Benyan, with representatives from customers Unilever and Vinventions, and supplier PLASTIC ENERGY at the event to announce the launch of SABIC’s certified circular polymers.
SABIC Chairman, Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Jarbou, and Vice Chairman & CEO Yousef Al-Benyan, with representatives from customers Unilever and Vinventions, and supplier PLASTIC ENERGY at the event to announce the launch of SABIC’s certified circular polymers.

SABIC has announced, together with its customers Unilever, Vinventions and Walki Group, it will manufacture certified circular polymers to be used by its customers for packaging solutions for a variety of consumer products that will be launched into the market in 2019.

The certified circular polymers will be produced from a feedstock known as TACOIL – a patented product from UK-based PLASTIC ENERGY Ltd - from the recycling of low quality, mixed plastic waste otherwise destined for incineration or landfill. SABIC will process this feedstock on its production site at Geleen in The Netherlands.

The finished certified circular polymers will then be supplied to the three key customers to use in their development of pioneering, high quality and safe consumer packaging for food, beverage, personal and home care products.

The market foundation stage is an important step of a project recently announced by SABIC and Plastic Energy to build first commercial plants in the Netherlands to manufacture and process the feedstock.

The announcement of the launch of SABIC’s certified circular polymers has taken place at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, where leaders from all four companies gathered at the iconic, energy-efficient, quick to construct and reusable ICEhouse building constructed using SABIC materials.

As a disruptive innovation, the introduction of the certified circular polymers in 2019 will create a new value chain, where SABIC, its upstream supplier and key downstream customers work side-by-side to upcycle mixed plastic waste back to the original polymer for packaging applications.

SABIC’s strategic customers cover a wide spectrum of consumer packaging needs from Unilever’s packaging for food, personal and home care products; synthetic wine closures for consistent preservation at Vinventions; and Walki Group’s protective packaging materials for consumer products. The common unifier among these companies is the need to deliver high quality packaging solutions with consumer safety being paramount and to meet the environmental and sustainability goals demanded by today’s society.

“Today, more than ever, sustainability is a core value which drives our advanced scientific and technological expertise and our pioneering spirit. Along with our eminent customers, we are proud to launch our certified circular polymers which is further testament to our leadership in advancing the circular economy,” said Yousef Al-Benyan, Vice Chairman and CEO, SABIC.
