LyondellBasell and Pigeon Singapore have partnered to advance sustainable research and development efforts in baby nursing bottles.

The partnership aims to transition away from using 100% virgin polypropylene resins in the production of Pigeon nursing bottles.

Pigeon is introducing a renewed series of nursing bottles that have been developed using LyondellBasell’s biobased CirculenRenew polypropylene polymers (PP).

These polymers are made from renewable feedstocks derived from bio-based wastes and residual oils, such as used cooking oils.

Use of these renewable feedstocks offers a lower carbon footprint compared to fossil-based feedstocks.

As part of the collaboration, CirculenRenew PP has been used in the cap and hood of the renewed Pigeon SofTouch T-Ester, PPSU and Glass nursing bottle and in the cap, hood and bottle of PP nursing and PP straw bottles.

LyondellBasell Asia Pacific senior vice-president Allen Yu said: “At LyondellBasell, we are committed to creating solutions for everyday sustainable living and supporting our customers in achieving their sustainability goals.

“Our CirculenRenew product family enables this progress.”

Initially, Pigeon Singapore is planning to roll out the renewed series of its SofTouch nursing bottles made with CirculenRenew in Indonesia, starting from this month.

Pigeon and LyondellBasell are launching CirculenRenew-made bottles in close collaboration with the Japanese trading company Iwatani.

Following the initial launch, the new range will be introduced in the rest of the markets across the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Africa and Oceania in the coming year.

Pigeon Singapore CEO Yusuke Nakata said: “Over the past few years, we have been studying our material sources and switching to alternative options where possible.

“Using bio-based plastic for our nursing bottles is an exciting breakthrough and we are proud to cooperate with LyondellBasell to introduce this meaningful range.”

In October last year, LyondellBasell and Henkel partnered to develop reopen/reclose properties for re-closable packaging.
