Covestro Covestro has had a strong, trusting business relationship with ALBIS for more than 50 years. For 2025, Covestro has set ambitious targets to combine sustainability and value creation. Recycling management plays a special role in this, as shown by the products Makrolon® RE, Desmopan® EC and Desmopan® RC. INEOS Styrolution Sustainability is a key success factor for the long-standing, trusting and successful cooperation between INEOS Styrolution and ALBIS. INEOS Styrolution is firmly integrated into the ALBIS range, as illustrated by the products Terluran® ECO, Styrolux® ECO, Styroflex® ECO, Luran® ECO and NAS® ECO. LANXESS LANXESS and ALBIS have been working together in the area of technical thermoplastics since 1966. In order to promote the transition to a more sustainable world, LANXESS is actively involved in transformation of the economy and global value chains. Part of the solution is provided by Durethan® ECO, which contains a proportion of recycled glass fibers, and Pocan ECO compounds, which contain post-consumer recycled PET. LyondellBasell This partnership has also been in existence for more than 50 years. LyondellBasell aims to actively contribute to the elimination of plastic waste, the tackling of climate change and support of a thriving society. The Circulen® product family also plays a significant role in these goals. MOCOM MOCOM produces a very wide portfolio of highly specialized and customer-specific compounds for a wide range of markets. They offer a range of recyclates and bio-based plastics. In particular the products Altech® ECO, Alfater® ECO and Cellidor® have already been able to impress in numerous application areas. SK Chemicals SK Chemicals is a leading global manufacturer of chemical and life science products. In the area of Green Chemicals, SK Chemicals particularly focuses on the development and production of bio-copolyesters, copolyesters and polyethylene terephthalates (PET) as well as technical plastics. These include the world’s first transparent bio-modified ECOZEN® copolyester and the environmentally-friendly, transparent ECOTRIA® copolyester material. In addition, ECOTRAN (PPS) is unique in its field because it is chlorine-free, making it particularly attractive with regard to environmental friendliness. WIPAG WIPAG has stood for successful plastics recycling for 30 years. With innovative and in-house developed technologies, the company produces high-quality recycled compounds in open loop and closed loop processes. This allows WIPAG to establish processes in recycling management and to return waste to production. WIPAG is also a specialist in the preparation and manufacture of injection-moldable carbon-fiber compounds. This lightweight material offers the possibility to reduce the CO2 footprint of applications through lower weight. Coupled with excellent technical properties, WIC compounds offer numerous advantages in a wide range of applications. MBA Polymers MBA Polymers offers economical and environmentally-sustainable alternatives to new products with high-quality post-consumer recycled (PCR) ABS, HIPS, PP, mineral-filled PP and HDPE. MGG Polymers MGG Polymers produces PCR plastics such as ABS, PC+ABS, HIPS and PP, which help to protect limited natural resources, consume significantly less energy over their life cycle, and save large quantities of greenhouse gases. EvoSource® offers premium products that are suitable for even the most demanding applications. Sipol Sipol focuses on the production of high-performance polymers for the areas of hot-melt adhesives, technopolymers and biopolymers. TECHNIPOL Bio is a bio-based/biodegradable product that was developed from bio-based co-monomers, by-products of vegetable oils. Application possibilities can be found in the footwear industry, the textile industry or as a component for the compounding of biodegradable/compostable engineering plastics. Solvay Solvay offers modern materials and specialty chemicals for a wide range of market segments. The company is committed to developing cleaner and safer mobility as well as improving resource efficiency. Kalix® HPPA and the latest Solvay PPA, Amodel Bios®, are partially based on sustainable raw materials, with Amodel Bios® produced using 100% renewable electricity. TECNARO TECNARO develops, processes and markets sustainably produced raw materials based on lignin, a by-product of cellulose production. The company has more than 20 years of experience in the development of ecological materials and has already received various sustainability awards. The compounds ARBOFORM®, ARBOFILL® and ARBOBLEND® are distinctive for the way they combine renewable raw materials and industrial compostable raw materials and are used for a variety of different applications.
