Our solutions for processing and performance

Avoiding plastic waste, using environment-friendly materials, making more efficient use of resources and energy, and improving the quality of life: These are just some of the challenges that the coming generations will have to deal with to a much greater extent than we do today. To tackle these challenges, new sustainable high-performance materials that have a reduced impact on the environment will be key. 

High-performance plastics contribute to the efficient use of resources as they help to reduce weight without affecting mechanical, optical or haptic characteristics. However, not all questions on the sustainable use and the recycling of such plastics have been fully answered yet. This is where Evonik comes in; we work intensively to develop strategies and solutions on the key topics such as recycling, biodegradability and improving the efficiency of resources – replacing the "end-of-life" concept with restoration and reuse and entering the circular economy culture.
