Materials manufacturer introduces how it’s Rethinking Sustainability

BERWYN, Pa. - Monday, September 30, 2019

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, is set to showcase its commitment to sustainability at the K Show (Hall 6, Booth E57) from October 16-24 in Düsseldorf, Germany. At the forefront of its presence at K Show, Trinseo will prominently highlight its activities advancing the circularity of Polystyrene. The materials manufacturer will outline during K Show its plan to offer 30% recycled content to its customers for polystyrene packaging in Europe by 2025.

Rethinking Sustainability, one of Trinseo’s key themes at K Show, highlights how the company is taking the lead on the development of sustainable products through close collaboration with customers and industry leadership.

Sustainable Solutions

Trinseo’s Plastics portfolio of sustainable products featured at K Show will include both rigid and soft touch plastics, including Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) bio-based and biodegradable plastics under the trade name of APINAT™, and polycarbonate containing up to 75% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content in the rigid portfolio, under the EMERGE™ ECO Advanced Resin series. ENLITE™ PP LGF Structural Polymers will also be featured, offering the automotive industry a sustainable alternative answering the need for weight savings. 

Industry Leadership

As a founding member of Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS), a consortium that explores new methods for polystyrene recycling, Trinseo will also highlight its industry leadership in the development of circular solutions and the adoption of novel technologies to find new methods for polystyrene recycling creating an infinitely recyclable and sustainable material. 

During K Show, Trinseo will highlight at its press breakfast on Thursday, October 17, the company’s plan to offer an average of 30% recycled content for its polystyrene packaging customers in Europe by 2025.

Additionally, Trinseo will host a workshop on its stand during K Show demonstrating its leadership in implementing Operation Clean Sweep. As a member of the Circular Plastics Alliance, Trinseo has re-pledged its commitment to Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) the industry initiative to help keep plastic granules out of the marine environment.

Collaborative Solutions

The cornerstone of Rethinking Sustainability for Trinseo at K Show is the importance of close customer collaboration to deliver material solutions that address key market megatrends relating to the environment. In July 2019, Trinseo released its annual Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility report, marking a full year since the company’s adoption of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards.

“Trinseo’s commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility drives us to continuously innovate and improve the long-term impact of our products. As a proactive leader for circular solutions, we are Rethinking Sustainability to help bring about meaningful, positive change,” said Catherine Keenan, Vice President, Public Affairs, Sustainability and Environment, Health and Safety.
