Functional Forms TRUCIRCLE™ Portfolio and Services

Society is currently facing some of the biggest challenges and we must work together to solve them. SABIC’s vision for the future is that plastic should never end up in the environment, landfill or in our oceans and instead is reused and remade into new products.

This vision requires a total transformation of the value chain. We have been working with our downstream and upstream partners to reinvent and pioneer our way towards a circular economy for the good of people and the planet. Our TRUCIRCLE™ portfolio and services play a significant part in achieving our vision and closing the loop on used plastic.

SABIC’s TRUCIRCLE™ portfolio and services showcase our circular innovations. We want to give manufacturers access to more sustainable materials. That way, they can give the end-consumer more confidence about buying products with the knowledge that the material can be recycled and repurposed, or that it has been produced in a way that can help protect our planet’s natural resources.
