INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, has today announced that Haitian, the global manufacturer of injection moulding machines, will demonstrate moulding with INEOS Styrolution’s new sustainable Novodur® ECO material at the K 2022 in Düsseldorf.

Haitian will demonstrate moulding with INEOS Styrolution’s specialty ABS material on a new Zeres machine which will be shown for the first time in Europe. The new moulding machine offers an effective energy saving concept, complementing the sustainability aspect of the ABS material used for the demonstration. Visitors to K 2022 are invited to experience the demonstration at Haitian’s booth in hall 15 / A57. Visitors, who are interested in more details about the Novodur ECO material, can visit INEOS Styrolution’s booth in hall 6 / D28.

Andreas Aust, Deputy Application Manager at Haitian, says: “The recycled Novodur ECO material is a true plug-in material excellently suited for optical parts making it very easy for customers to do the step towards more sustainability and a lower GHG emission.”

Christian Dietlein, Technical Account Manager Standard ABS EMEA at INEOS Styrolution, adds: “I am excited to see our new Novodur ECO within a multicomponent injection moulding process on Haitian’s new platform. Novodur ECO is an excellent substitute vs. virgin ABS for this application. Our material and Haitian’s injection moulding machine are a winning combination.”

Novodur is INEOS Styrolution’s brand of specialty ABS copolymers used in a broad range of industries including automotive, construction, electronics, household, healthcare and packaging. Novodur ECO is available as mechanically recycled material with a 30%, 50% and 70% post-consumer recycled content. Certain Novodur ECO grades are also available with 50% contribution of bio-attributed content. All INEOS Styrolution ECO grades have in common that mechanical properties match the properties of their non-ECO counterparts. Product carbon footprint (PCF) saving is up to 71%.
