Introducing IrgaCycle™: Additive solution innovations for mechanical recycling

The plastics industry has a strong mandate to increase sustainability, reduce waste, re-introduce recyclate and enable circularity. As a leading global producer of plastic additives, BASF takes this goal very seriously and is working on a wide range of solutions to advance the circular economy of polymeric material.

With IrgaCycle™ additive solutions, we combine our extensive additive experience with innovation compositions to address the plastic recycling market.  IrgaCycle™ products can help increase the use of recycled polymers in plastic articles, while also improving the quality and performance of the material.

These products are offered as part of the VALERAS™ portfolio to “Close the Loop” on plastic waste.
