THE Total Ecosolutions ADVantage
Lumicene® 32ST05 polyethylene is obtained by polymerizing ethylene using a metallocene catalyst. Its unique molecular structure offers an excellent stiffness/toughness/processability balance, thereby downgauging polyethylene film 25% compared to a standard film of 150 μm manufactured using Ziegler-Natta or chromium catalysts or free radical initiators, for the same properties.
THE Environmental Performance
For a reference film of 35μm :
- 25% reduction in non-renewable resources consumption
- 25% reduction in energy consumption
- 25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
For every 1,000 tons of Lumicene® 32ST05 polyethylene used, the resultant savings are around 80 terajoules and 3,900 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent.
