REVOLOOP™
Recycled Plastics Resins in EMEA

Europe Product Offering

noav-revoloop-logo-362x135

At Dow we believe that plastic is way too valuable a resource to be thrown away or lost to landfill, which is why we’re dedicated to reducing plastic waste.

Our vision is to accelerate from a linear economy, where goods are made, used, and disposed of, to a circular economy, where plastic products are designed and manufactured in a way that maximizes and retains their value across their life cycle.

noav-content-flowmap-347x191

One of the most effective and important methods of achieving this is through recycling. By recycling and reusing plastic products, we not only protect the environment by reducing the scale of products going to landfill, but we minimize the impact and amount of resources required for production and help retain the value of plastic products. In short, recycling allows us to close the loop.

But how do we do this? One way that we’re working towards this goal is through the development of innovative resins that include a high percentage of post-consumer recycled (PCR) material and give them a new lease of life, retaining the value of the recycled plastic.

 

Supporting a circular economy through mechanical recycling and REVOLOOP

So, why REVOLOOP™?

REVOLOOP™ exemplifies our efforts around the world to enable mechanical recycling. By allowing for technologies, partnerships and developments that support high quality PCR incorporation into our everyday plastic packaging and other applications, REVOLOOP™ helps to close the loop on plastic waste. Furthermore, REVOLOOP™ stands for a single-pellet solution that enables a simpler PCR process integration for film and turf producers and helps Brand Owners to achieve their sustainability goals.

Recent LCA studies suggest up to 34% reductions in CO2 emissions when using REVOLOOP™ resins versus virgin polymers, depending on the final application and the percentage of PCR used in the formulation(*). That’s making a difference!

Sustainability is at the forefront of our manufacturing processes, too. We are developing REVOLOOP™ Recycled Plastics Resins in accordance with strict international toxicological protocols to assure a safe work environment for everyone.

REVOLOOP™ Key Applications

Certifications
 

noav-dow-AENOR-certification-437x170

AENOR certification indicates that all three of Dow’s REVOLOOP™ recycled plastics resins offered in EMEA contain post-consumer recycled plastic.

Dow is the first company to obtain this certification, accredited by ENAC, for plastic compounds with post-consumer recycled (PCR) material. DOW™ XZ 98612.00 at 30% PCR and DOW™ XZ 98615.00 and DOW™ XZ 89169.00, both at 70% PCR. This certification demonstrates our commitment to offering recycled plastics resins that benefit our customers and help advance their sustainability targets in alignment with legislation. Learn more about this certification.

ISCC Logo


International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) recognizes Dow’s implementation of environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable production, and ensures product supply chains are fully traceable and that Dow and its suppliers are adhering to and accelerating sustainable practices.

And if it is not REVOLOOP™?

Dow supports the development of solutions that enable the use of recycled materials without quality compromises. Apart from single-pellet solutions, Dow also has at your disposal a broad portfolio of compatibilizers and modifiers and we are keen on sharing our experience on adding PCR to different film formulations.
