Materials science expert Milliken & Company Milliken & Company has joined the industry collaboration Polypropylene Recycling Coalition.

The move is part of the company’s strategy aimed to enhance polypropylene (PP) plastic circularity.

It will complement Milliken’s plastic circularity goal and help maintain a strong additives and modifiers portfolio.

PP plastic offers high-performance mechanical properties that reduce the amount of material required in an application compared to other resins.

Besides, Milliken will contribute its material science expertise in supporting the organisation to improve the high-quality recycled PP plastic supply.

The company will also support the PP recycling infrastructure enhancement in the US and promote curbside recycling via consumer education programmes.
