Repsol Presents New Polypropylene Grade
Repsol S.A. Madrid, Spain, launches a new polypropylene (PP) grade, Repsol 25RXPP086Y1E for nonwoven fabric, developed together with its customer DNT Nonwoven Fabrics. This new grade incorporates 25% of post-industrial recycled material, however, it does not alter the properties of the final product or affects the reliability of the process. With this project, Repsol continues to drive the change towards the circular economy, in line with its commitment to the European Commission's "Circular Plastics Alliance" (CPA) to increase the total volume of recycled plastic in the Community market to 10 million t in 2025.
Especially for Applications in the Fiber Sector
Embedded within its circularity strategy and responding to the needs of its client, DNT Nonwoven Fabrics, Repsol has designed a new recycled material that offers consistency, of both characteristics and quality of the raw material. This consistency offers stability for the transformation process in the spunbond lines, which makes it especially suitable for applications in the fiber sector, in which DNT operates.
Additionally, the company is evaluating diverse options to incorporate post-consumer recycled material, as well as new alternative applications in the PP sheet and strip sectors.
