High Quality Recycled Polymers for the Automotive Industry

Tough, cost effective and sustainable, MBA Polymers UK recycled compounds offer around an 80% reduction in carbon footprint emissions against using a virgin polymer. The technical, environmental and economic benefits of using high grade recycled compounds in the automotive industry are increasingly clear.
 
MBA offer real-world closed-loop recycling. Waste plastic from the automotive industry is recycled into materials which can be incorporated in components for new and existing vehicles, boosting the circular economy.
 
What hasn’t been clear until now is where to get the best quality recycled polymers.  

Products that are certificated, sustainable and compliant with new and existing legislation.

At MBA we make it clear
