LyondellBasell Receives European Innovation Award
LyondellBasell, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, received a European Innovation Award from PlasticsEurope and the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) in the category "Material Innovation."
The company was honored for the development of Koattro KT MR05, a new plastomer with "self-healing" properties. The energy injected by the cutting instrument melts the amorph-soft surface and the two components can be joined together before the surface recrystallizes. "We are honored to receive this Innovation Award from Plastics Europe," said Richard Roudeix, LyondellBasell's senior vice president olefins and polyolefins for Europe, Asia and international. "Innovation is a part of our DNA and our extensive R&D and Technical Service teams around the world are helping our customers advance their product portfolio, making more sustainable production processes a reality."
The European Innovation Award was launched by The Society of Plastics Engineers and PlasticsEurope to raise awareness about the potential of plastic materials. With this award, Plastics Europe and SPE honor companies that have excelled with regard to innovation in the plastics industry. All companies that play a role in the value chain of plastics products, from the larger chemical companies to the plastic converting SMEs, are eligible for the award.
