PC & PC/ABS LUPOY PCR COMPOUNDS
The LG Portfolio of PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) PC and PC/ABS LUPOY ER materials (LG Chem’s PCR brand name) can be formulated with up to 90% recycled content whilst retaining a material performance comparable to its all-virgin LUPOY equivalent.
Lifecycle analysis (LCA) has proven favourable environmental impacts. The LCA tool compared the difference in carbon dioxide (Co2) emissions, energy and water consumption to that of its virgin equivalent and in all cases LUPOY Environmentally Recycled grades resulted in a more sustainable solution with up to 30-40% less carbon footprint.
The LG Chem sustainable LETZero product portfolio comprises
