Based on its recent analysis of the COPE elastomers market, Frost & Sullivan recognises DSM Engineering Plastics (DSM) with the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Europe Green Excellence in Product Innovation Award for Arnitel® Eco.

"This innovative and more sustainable partly bio-based copolyester thermoplastic elastomer (COPE) offers superior performance characteristics," notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Deepan Kannan. "It is set to meet the increasing demand for more environment-friendly materials in a range of end-user applications."

This revolutionary material, launched in 2010, is partially made from rapeseed oil. With it, DSM aims to encourage end-users to reduce their carbon footprint by switching over to Arnitel® Eco from petrochemical-based COPE elastomers.

Although designed for several applications including food packaging, automotive interiors, sports and leisure, furniture, consumer electronics and alternative energy, Arnitel® Eco is currently used commercially for high temperature ovenable pan liners. Its application in M&Q Packaging Corporation's PanSaver ECO® has resulted in a carbon footprint reduction of nearly 65 per cent.

In addition to offering a more sustainable solution through Arnitel® Eco, DSM has gone the extra mile to design a product that overcomes some of the challenges associated with conventional equivalents. For instance, COPE elastomers possess low UV resistance. In contrast, Arnitel® Eco exhibits higher UV resistance, owing to its unique formulation. It also offers better heat resistance.

"The resultant plastic thus possesses a high melting point and is suitable for applications at temperatures of even 200 degrees celsius," elaborates Kannan. "Arnitel® Eco can also be used at high temperatures for an extended period of time as it possesses superior thermo-oxidative resistance."

Achieving a reduced carbon footprint through its bio-based products is an integral part of DSM's business strategies. In the past, the company has revolutionised the engineering plastics and composite resins market by launching more eco-friendly products such as EcoPaXX™ and Palapreg® ECO.

DSM is also engaged in the manufacture of bio-based alternatives for the basic chemicals sector. The joint venture with Roquette to produce bio-succinic acid is aimed at producing environment-friendly, bio- based base chemicals. The company also has a leading position in second generation bio-fuels.

"The company's 'green' commitment is exhibited not only by its bio-based products, but also by its range of more eco-efficient solutions, its drive to reduce the use of hazardous substances and its commitment to recycling and Cradle-to-Cradle," remarks Kannan. "Arnitel® Eco, in addition to being partly bio-based, has received the Cradle to Cradle® Silver certification from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry."

As recipient of the Frost & Sullivan Green Excellence in Product Innovation Award, DSM is acknowledged for its exceptionally environment-friendly product profile and business commitment as well as its demonstration of environmental accountability.
