Sabic Innovative Plastics Wins Responsible Care Award

The Association of the Dutch Chemical Industry (VNCI), presented Sabic Innovative Plastics, Bergen op Zoom, Netherland, with the Responsible Care Award 2009, during the VNCI annual meeting in The Hague. The company was honored for its efforts in developing a polybutylene terephtalate (PBT) based product portfolio using discarded polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic, usually found in disposable materials like drinking bottles. The material, using a proprietary process, consumes less energy and yields less carbon dioxide (CO2) through its entire manufacturing process compared to traditional resins.

Submissions for The Responsible Care award are reviewed by an independent jury, consisting of representatives from government organisations, environmental bodies, and chemical companies. Sabic Innovative Plastics’ program was deemed a model for the “cradle-to-cradle’ concept, whereby materials that have been used for one product can be used for another product without loss of quality. The jury also praised the way in which waste from outside the company was used.
