LEADING THE WAY IN DECARBONISATION
Reaching climate targets will depend on a number of different approaches and solutions working together. One example of this is capturing carbon for re-use. Carbon capture and utilization (CCU), is a key component of the decarbonisation puzzle and SABIC is leading the way.
REUSABLE CUTLERY MADE FROM NATURE
Today, one of the biggest challenge the food industry is facing is to reduce the environmental impact and the use of fossil-based resources for single-use cutlery, and enable full recyclability and compliance with the stringent food packaging industry standards without affecting the quality.
RECYCLED MATERIALS THAT KEEP ON PROTECTING OUR HEALTH AND THE PLANET
SABIC have teamed up with Fibertex Personal Care, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of spunbond nonwovens for the hygiene industry. The collaboration resulted in the world’s first nonwovens range based on recycled plastics.
ACCELERATING ELECTRIFICATION WILL ULTIMATELY ACCELERATE A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Vehicle electrification has become a huge part of the move towards a more sustainable future, but it faces numerous challenges to increase adoption.
COLLABORATION. IT’S CREATING SUSTAINABLE FUTURES.
Our partnerships are helping to cut greenhouse gases, reduce waste and educate young people about sustainability.
Transforming waste CO2 into fertilizer
At our CO2 capture and purification mega-plant, we can reuse up to half a million tons of waste emissions that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere. A significant amount of the captured CO2 is used to produce urea, a common nitrogen-based agri-nutrient for more plentiful harvests.
Less food waste
Over a third of the world’s food is lost between farm and fork. Innovative packaging solutions from SABIC are helping global food companies and consumers reduce food waste. Multi-layer pouch packaging made with SABIC® polyolefins is giving food longer shelf life, preventing leakage in a lightweight solution with high sealing integrity.
Making the circular economy go round
SABIC’s collaborations are making it possible to create materials of high enough quality for food packaging by breaking down complex, low-quality waste plastics to their original state. This way, we can use, reuse and repurpose more of our resources without needing new ones, making the circular economy a reality.
Helping children to be students of sustainability.
Working with educational NGOs, SABIC is helping the next generation explore the latest thinking in sustainable living. Our joint programs reach and teach over 100,000 students in 22 countries. Working with schools to make sustainability part of our collective future, it’s a partnership that promotes prosperity and secures our future.
DESIGNED FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Every device we use has a carbon footprint. SABIC’s bio-based materials are helping manufacturers to reduce it and to meet sustainability targets when they develop and upgrade products.
