Partially or fully recycled Rilsan polyamide 11, Rilsamid polyamide 12 and Pebax® polymers produced by Arkema through the Virtucycle® recycling program at its custom recycling plant in Italy are being commercialized
At the heart of Arkema's Virtucycle® recycling program is the design and formulation
of high-performance materials, from the supply of recycled materials to recycling and performance certification.
Arkema plays a key role in the online coatingol.
of coatings by making recycled materials from high-performance polymers and making them recycled.
By the end of the year, Arkema will be supplying several SCS*-certified product specifications that meet stringent performance standards and are traceable to
We will also provide detailed LCA data
These products are produced at Arkema's physical recycling plant for high-performance polymers in Italy, all using renewable energy
In 2021, Arkema acquired Agiplast
, a specialist in the field of high-performance polymer regeneration.

Senior Vice President
"Our customers are increasingly interested in innovative recycling solutions for materials and are keen to drive improvements in the sustainability and circularity of our supply chains, and we are taking a big step in the right direction with the recent acquisition of Agiplast, which combines
our proven expertise in high-performance polymers with Agiplast's advancement in recycled materials and our customers with ambitious sustainability initiatives around the world.
" Arkema and our partners have taken an exciting step in their sustainability journey, with our ability to design and produce recycled materials
with both high performance and a low carbon footprint.
It is exciting to extend the service life of these polymers
, sometimes with new applications completely unrelated to those before recycling.
The growth potential in the field of regeneration is enormous
