9. Non-fossil fuel-derived, biodegradable chemical components for the daily chemical industry
Background: A growing number of companies in the household chemicals industry are committed to sustainability: on the one hand, phasing out fossil fuel-derived chemicals from their product formulations to reduce the burden on the planet from over-exploitation of oil and to help reduce their carbon footprint; on the other hand, increasing the biodegradability of their products to reduce their environmental impact.
Targets: To develop biodegradable chemical components derived from renewable resources such as plants, air ( carbon dioxide ), marine resources and waste.
23. Solutions for marine microfibre pollution
Background: Under mechanical stress, thousands of microfibres (nylon, polyester, etc.) are shed from chemical fibre clothing during the washing process and seep into the groundwater with the washing water, which is then injected into rivers and eventually into the ocean. These microfibres are not biodegradable and are ingested by marine organisms, thus entering the food chain of marine macro-organisms and even humans. A 2017 report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation estimated that up to 500,000 tonnes of this high pollutant flow into the ocean – 16 times more than the plastic microbeads of the cosmetics industry.
Targets: To develop new anti-shedding fabrics or solutions against microfibre shedding for the clothing washing process.
24. Application of odour absorbers in plastics recycling
Background: In recent years, China pays great attention to the problem of plastic pollution and has increased its efforts in recycling policies for waste plastics. The processing of waste plastics can release unpleasant odours such as vinyl chloride, hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide, amines, ammonia odours and other offensive odours. These unpleasant odours and smells not only have a serious impact on the production environment, but also reduce the quality and grade of recycled plastic products. Evonik has been working in the field of odour absorption for many years and has introduced some innovative products to solve the odour problem, such as a product based on activated zinc ricinolates, which firmly locks in the sulphur and nitrogen containing molecules in the odour so that the odour molecules are not emitted.
Targets: Development of odour absorbers to develop their application in the recycling of waste plastics
