Ellen MacArthur Foundation
We are proud to be a signatory of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy Global Commitment – furthering our commitment to advance a circular economy for plastics.
The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, launched in 2018, unites the efforts of more than 400 organizations around the world to advance a circular economy for plastics. Signatories commit to a set of ambitious 2025 targets and work towards a common vision in which plastics never become waste.
Plastics Recyclers Europe
We are proud members of Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE).
This organization unites the European plastics recyclers who are enabling the incorporation of plastic waste into new products. Together with our PRE co-members, we are working to further the circular economy of plastics and the sustainable global circular economy.
Operation Clean Sweep
We are an Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) partner.
This organization is a product stewardship program of the American Chemistry Council; its goal is to work toward achieving zero pellet, flake and powder loss of plastic resins globally in every plastic resin handling operation through implementation of specific containment and housekeeping practices in order to preserve the environment. OCS is already in practice is thousands of plants around the world and we’re proud to be a partner aligned in their mission.
We believe that we now offer the broadest range of specialty carbon blacks that are certified to facilitate compliance with the new REACH requirements. We have been a leader in providing high purity carbon blacks, including those used in applications that need to comply with EU food contact legislation requirements.
We have been innovating in the plastics industry for more than 100 years.
