Neste and IKEA to launch com­mer­cial-scale pro­duc­tion of bio-based polypropy­lene

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

Neste Corp. is col­lab­o­rat­ing with IKEA to uti­lize re­new­able residue and waste raw ma­te­ri­als, such as used cook­ing oil, as well as sus­tain­ably-pro­duced vegetable oils in the pro­duc­tion of plas­tic prod­ucts. It will be the first large-scale pro­duc­tion of re­new­able, bio-based polypropy­lene plas­tic glob­ally.

IKEA wants to use more re­new­able and re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als and ex­plore new ma­te­ri­als for IKEA prod­ucts. As part of this jour­ney, IKEA is work­ing to change all of the plas­tic used in IKEA prod­ucts to plas­tic based on re­cy­cled and/or re­new­able ma­te­ri­als by 2030.

One of the on­go­ing projects to­wards elim­i­nat­ing vir­gin fos­sil-based raw ma­te­ri­als in plas­tic prod­ucts is col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween IKEA and Neste, which was ini­ti­ated in 2016.
