“Fortum Circo® recycled plastic compounds are developed in close collaboration with customers in order to create the precise raw material compound that meets the requirements of the final product.”
Fortum Circo®Lab is a co-creation programme for raw materials development, aiming to support customers in implementing recycled plastic into their production. In the Fortum CircoLab programme, Fortum Circo® recycled plastic material is customised into a compound tailored to the customer's needs and products.
Each development project begins with an initial analysis, where the product features and performance are analysed.
During the concept stage, the initial specification for the raw material is made and the production concept is created.
Iteration is an important part of the material development programme. In the development phase, recycled plastic is tailored into a specific compound based on your needs.
Our plastic experts are there to support you at all stages when implementing a new recycled plastic compound material to produce more sustainable products.
The test stage produces the first version of the product with the new material compound to test the functionality and the visual and technical properties.
Once the material has been approved in trial phase, the production and upscaling the volumes can take place in controlled manner.
Fortum Circo® recycled plastic compounds can also be tailored to your specific needs and requirements
Fortum Circo® PP-CF is a high-performance compound of recycled plastic reinforced with cellulose fibre for injection moulding applications with a close-to-zero carbon footprint.
