LyondellBasell, Granger Frères SAS and Novacel partner to develop protective films using bio-based polymers

September 22, 2022 |

In the Netherlands, polymer manufacturer LyondellBasell, converter Granger Frères SAS and Novacel, a specialist in surface solutions, have worked together to develop protective films using polyethylene (PE) polymers made from renewable resources.

The partners said the new product is being commercialized under the name “OXYGEN vegetal” and can be used on all types of surfaces, ranging from glass and metal to plastic and laminates.

The LyondellBasell CirculenRenew polymers are the starting point for this new film development. CirculenRenew polymers are made with renewable-based materials from bio-based resources, such as used cooking oil, the company said.

Paula Sanabria-Luque, Associate Director Circular Polymer Solutions Europe at LyondellBasell, said: “CirculenRenew polymers do not require changes in an existing manufacturing process, which make them easy to use. But most importantly, they allow our customers Granger and Novacel to produce a market leading end product that embraces the use of renewable resources.”
