Floreon HALOGEN FREE
Floreon is a halogen free alternative to flame retarded ABS and is suitable for both chemical and mechanical recycling. In addition to this, it has up to 7 times lower carbon footprint than ABS.
FLAME RETARDED ABS
Flame retarded ABS is not recycled today due to concerns about halogenated flame retardants. Material choice for the $29.6 billion Electronics and Electrical industry this translates to a vast volume of plastic not getting recycled.
We hear the plastic industry say...
Flame retarded ABS cannot be recycled from post consumer sources

...however Floreon has now CHANGED this perception
Floreon is the HALOGEN FREE alternative to Flame Retarded ABS that can be recycled
Floreon’s base material (PLA) is ideally suited to chemical recycling.
In pilot plant /kilo lab trials with the Biorenewables Development Centre, Floreon were able to recover 100% of the lactic acid feedstock in a simple and fast reaction, removing ALL flame retardant and fillers by simple filtration.
This feedstock can then be used to regenerate virgin polymer with no downcycling.
