The future is CIRCULAR
Plastics have decisively changed people's lives. Their versatile use is an integral part of our society. Our high-performance plastics are used in a wide range of specialty applications. As reliable materials for lightweight 3D applications, they help conserve resources. As implant materials, they enhance the quality of life of millions of patients worldwide. As high-performance materials, they enable innovations.
In the future, Evonik's high-performance plastics will continue to improve people's lives in many areas. That's why today's shift from a linear to a circular plastics economy is crucial to safeguarding the quality of life for next generations.
Although, establishing an efficient circular economy is a complex thing: every single step in the production cycle must be re-evaluated, supply chains must be reorganized, new materials are needed. As PIONEER for polymer-based 3D printing materials, we accept responsibility for our businesses, our employees, the environment and the society. For us, responsible action and economic success belong inseparably together.
Renity™ - Our recycling program to drive true circularity
Additive manufacturing is a transformative technology with the potential to revolutionize manufacturing processes and drive sustainability. The main advantages of 3D printing could play an important, even decisive role for producers and manufacturers towards series applications. Yet material manufacturers bear a great responsibility here because the sustainable result of an application stands or falls with the sustainable performance of the materials used.
Evonik drives circular plastics economy by contributing to both footprint and handprint values. Our formula for circularity which we call our RHILOSOPHY is based on four key cornerstones:
Renity™ stands for Evonik‘s recycling program to drive #TrueCircularity focussing on bringing PA12-based 3D printed end-of-life parts into their second life cycle, thus optimizing the closed-loop ecosystem.
Togheter, we can circulate the future
By shaping the 3D printing industry for almost three decades of experience in development and manufacturing polymer-based formulations, we are consistently working on new end-of-life opportunities for our polyamide 12 powders. We are looking to collaborate with companies in the field of additive manufacturing to establish material collection schemes and promote polymer REUSE.
