Chemical manufacturing company SABIC has announced a collaboration with NUDEC, a manufacturer of clear plastic sheets for numerous industries such as construction, personal and machinery protection

NUDEC, based in Barcelona, Spain, will be using SABIC?s LEXAN polycarbonate (PC) resin based on certified renewable feedstock in several end applications for these industries.

?We are delighted to collaborate with NUDEC to introduce our certified renewable polycarbonate into the building and construction sector, helping to create applications that are made to last, and are produced more sustainably,? said Abdullah S. Al-Otaibi, ETP and Market Solution general manager at SABIC.

?Our certified renewable materials have a lower carbon footprint and are made to the same high specifications and properties as virgin products, whilst still acting as a drop-in solution. This is a great example of how we are committed to innovating and working with partners to change how plastic is made and used, by collaborating across the value chain to create a circular economy where we use our natural resources wisely and responsibly,? he added.

?NUDEC is the first in the plastic sheet industry to offer an alternative for our customers to keep up with the trend towards more sustainability in the development of polycarbonate sheets,? said Joan Antoni Enrich, CEO at NUDEC. ?Our vision focuses on sustainable development with great respect for the environment. To achieve this, our challenge is to increase our product range with solutions containing a certain percentage of raw materials coming from a renewable source, as well as the implementation of new norms and actions to help improve our environmental footprint.?
