From used Cooking Oil to High-Value laboratory consumables – This is your Future Lab Perspective
Since fossil-based plastic vessels have replaced glass vessels, they have become irreplaceable in laboratories, providing quality standards needed in demanding research. And this is the challenge in respect to sustainability.
The alternative to the fossil-based polymer used for our new tubes generation is made of a specific bio-based polymer, made of renewably sourced, reused feedstock like for instance cooking oil.
- The food oil wastes and residues used to produce the renewable feedstock based polypropylene are traceable to the first collection points
- The renewable feedstock based polypropylene and all manufacturing steps are sustainability certified by ISCC PLUS – a reliable, world-leading certification system. The renewable feedstock content is determined via the ISCC mass balance approach
- The resulting materials for the polyolefines used meet the same strict specifications, purity and quality, regardless of whether they are fossil-based or renewable feedstock based
