Mitsubishi to Showcase Its Sustainable Material Highlights at K 2022

The Mitsubishi Chemical Group (MCG) will present its material highlights at K 2022, the leading exhibition for the plastics and rubber industry.
Reducing GHG Emissions
The company continues to focus on innovative and sustainable specialty materials for many industries. This is reflected by their pledge to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 with net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
On display will be solutions that contribute to the circular economy through different approaches. Bio-based materials such as BioPBS™, VINIKA VG™ and TEFABLOC TG™ are derived from natural resources. While further materials contain recycled content such as polyester films with a proportion of post-consumer recyclate like Hostaphan® PCR.
Others are designed directly for circular use, intended to close the loop, or extend a product life cycle. What all these materials have in common is that they help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Demonstrating the versatility of these sustainable solutions is the Mitsubishi Chemical Group’s stand construction itself, which incorporates a selection of these materials. For example, the designer floor covering is made of bio-based PVC (VINIKA VG™).
The coffee corner on the ground floor, is made of plant based EKOA®. This material from Mitsubishi Chemical Group’s partner Lingrove is a cost-effective CO2 neutral product that can replace wood in interior applications from fixtures and floors to furniture and walls.
You can find Mitsubishi Chemical Group at stand FG 04.1 – a standalone building near Hall 4.
