Frost & Sullivan commends DSM for developing Green Arnitel Eco

November 15/2011

(DSM) -- Based on its recent analysis of the TPC elastomers market, Frost & Sullivan recognises DSM Engineering Plastics (DSM) with the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Europe Green Excellence in Product Innovation Award for Arnitel Eco.

This innovative and more sustainable partly bio-based thermoplastic copolyester elastomer (TPC) offers superior performance characteristics, notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Deepan Kannan. It is set to meet the increasing demand for more environment-friendly materials in a range of end-user applications.

This revolutionary material, launched in 2010, is partially made from rapeseed oil. With it, DSM aims to encourage end-users to reduce their carbon footprint by switching over to Arnitel Eco from petrochemical-based TPC elastomers.

Although designed for several applications including food packaging, automotive interiors, sports and leisure, furniture, consumer electronics and alternative energy, Arnitel Eco is currently used commercially for high temperature ovenable pan liners. Its application in M&Q Packaging Corporations PanSaver ECO has resulted in a carbon footprint reduction of nearly 65 per cent.

Perspectives of development of polymer markets, pricing issues and other important aspects will be discussed at The Polymers Summit-2011, which will be held in Moscow on November 30, 2011 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Summit will be organized by MRC with the support of ICIS. The main idea of the Summit is to find a "the golden mean" between producers and converters. When producers receive exactly such margin of production, which helps them to invest in production expansion in order to substitute polymers imports, and the converters receive such price of feedstock that helps them to compete imported finished products. The Summit site gives an access to the live video of the Summit, speakers" presentations, as well as opportunities to ask questions or make appointments to any Summit partcipant.
