At the Index in Geneva/Switzerland from October 19-22, 2021, the chemical company Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), Riyadh/Saudi Arabia, will exhibit SABIC Purecares PP and PE polymers, andwill also feature enabling solutions developed with partners to address the issue of plastic waste and support the transformation of the industry towards a circular economy with closed-loop initiatives and certified circular polymers under its Trucircle portfolio and services.
The new material technology and high-performance SABIC Purecares portfolio presented by the H&H segment will include dedicated PP and PE grades for lightweight nonwovens using the latest spunbond and meltblown processes, and a new ultra-high melt flow PP product engineered for meltblown fibers in nonwovens.
