Mattel uses renewable polymers SABIC (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) recently announced a collaboration with Mattel (El Segundo, CA, USA) to incorporate certified renewable polymers from Sabics TRUCIRCLE program across Mattel’s products offering. The first Mattel toy products to enter the market in 2022 using certified renewable Sabic ® PP (polypropylene) polymers will be from MEGA and Matchbox, with more to follow. Heading the initiative will be MEGA BLOKS Green Town, the first-ever toy line available at mass retail to be certified CarbonNeutral. These new construction playsets, including the Grow & Protect Farm and the Build & Learn Eco House, embrace the sustainable material choice and help teach kids green behaviours. From the Matchbox brand, all Action Driver playsets and the Matchbox Recycling Trucks contain SABIC materials, which supports the brand’s Driving Toward a Better Future initiative, to make all Matchbox die-cast cars, playsets, and packaging with 100 % recycled, recyclable, or biobased plastic materials by 2030, in line with Mattel’s corporate goal. Mattel is the first company in the toys market to work with Sabic in a mass balance approach designed to return second-generation renewable feedstock into high-quality new plastic applications. The partnership directly supports Mattel’s goal to achieve 100 % recycled, recyclable, or biobased plastic materials in its products and packaging by 2030 and is an important step forward in their transition towards a circular economy. AT | Bio-attributed ABS Trinseo (Berwyn, PA, USA) recently announced the launch of a more sustainable version of its established MAGNUM ABS resins for automotive applications. During polymerization, fossil-based polymers are combined with renewable raw materials according to a mass balance process, resulting in Magnum Bio ABS resins with up to 80 % bioattributed content, based on the ISCC Mass Balance approach. Trinseo strives to use second-generation waste such as used kitchen oil and residue from the pulp industry that do not compete with the food chain and are consistent with a sustainable food future. Because the renewable raw materials become identical in chemical composition to their fossil-based counterparts during feedstock cracking, segregation during manufacturing is unnecessary. The material is structurally and functionally the same as its fossil-based counterpart and can be used with existing tooling and equipment under the same processing conditions, meaning there is no need for requalification, all while offering a significantly lower CO 2 footprint. “The launch of Magnum Bio ABS further extends our portfolio of sustainably-advantaged materials dedicated to the automotive industry”, said Frank Schumann, Global Marketing Manager, Automotive, Trinseo. “Following the successful market introduction of our PULSE GX ECO Series, PC/ABS with recycled content, we are excited to provide our automotive customers with more solutions that help them achieve their sustainability targets”. Recently, Trinseo launched the Sustainability Business & Services (SBS) unit led by Francesca Reverberi, SVP & Chief Sustainability Officer. The new unit is focused on collaborating with all other business units, leveraging technologies, supporting sustainability-related initiatives, and ensuring their 2030 Sustainability Goals will be achieved.
