A Green Wave in Plastics and Plasticizers?


Almost every day there are announcements about green developments in plastics and / or plasticizers. If only the amount of articles would count, you would guess the plastic industry is becoming green in a rather quick pace. If you look a bit deeper most of the announcements are really just announcements‚Ķnothing is there yet, but will come…perhaps…somewhere in the future.

In the case of plasticizers, bio based plasticizers are not something new. We see new products emerging but the already existing products do not have a really big marketshare. So far it looks like that most of the existing and announced bio plasticizers are used a secondary plasticizers at best. However a lot of things are happening and we will regularly review developments in this area.
