Lumicene® M5220, M5220M  and M5222 polyethylene for Lighter injection moulded caps

Total Petrochemicals Lumicene® grades are new generation polyolefins with improved performance based on proprietary technology. Total Petrochemicals Lumicene® M5220, M5220M and M5222 are used to manufacture caps for carbonated drinks.

 Total Ecosolutions ADvantage

The properties of these grades reduce the weight of cap by around 16% which results in significant material savings and save up to 16% of energy at processing in injection molding compared with the most widely used standard polyethylenes.

THE Environmental Performance

 

  • 16% reduction in non-renewable resources consumption
  • 16% reduction in energy consumption
  • 16% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions

The use of 1000t of Lumicene® M5220, M5220M and M5222 averts the emission of around 550t of CO2 equivalent, which corresponds to the average annual emissions of approximately 55 citizens.

Source: European Environment Agency, October 2010: greenhouse gas emissions in EU 27 for 2008 = 9.9 tons of CO2 equivalent per capita.
