In a study, the SKZ calculated with recycled ALTECH ECO® PA6 / PA66 a saving of approx. 11 kg CO2e (CO2Emission) per kg PA6 / PA6.6 in comparison to a prime nylon product.
The CO2 balance was calculated in accordance with the international standards for life cycle assessment DIN EN ISO 14040 / 14044 and is also based on the technical specification ISO / TS 14067 for the "Carbon Footprint of Products".
It is assumed that the regranulate is used as an equivalent substitute for virgin material made from the same base polymer and is therefore a substitute. Especially due to the current force majeure situation at PA66, regranulate-based substitutes offer a cost-effective and CO2-saving alternative.
"Near-to-Prime® performance and quality with a significant reduction of carbon footprint: you will find both combined in our product ALTECH ECO®"!
