At the same time, Gabriel-Chemie presents new white premium masterbatch with a 10% reduced CO2 footprint. The formulations have been optimised, raw materials with a reduced carbon footprint are used and now offer customers a product to reduce their carbon footprint.
For the resource-saving production of the CO2-reduced white, 100% energy from renewable sources is used at the Austrian site, which consists, among other things, of self-generated electricity from our own photovoltaic system. This represents a serious alternative without having to compromise on performance, functionality or application. An EU and FDA approval enables the CO2-reduced white to be delivered worldwide and to provide further sustainable solutions for customers.
As Nicole Ziegler, Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Manager at Gabriel-Chemie, states: "As a company in the plastics industry, we are aware of our great responsibility. Under the umbrella of "GC Sustainable Solutions" we have developed resource-saving and climate-friendly alternatives to conventional products of fossil origin. In doing so, we are taking account of the increasing demands of our customers, who are paying more attention to the CO2 footprint of their products, but do not want to accept any compromises in terms of function.”
