4earth™ recycled polyamides - the recycling brand of reference
There is a significant trend toward eco-friendly design and recycling in major polyamide markets such those for automotive, sports and leisure, construction, textile and household appliances.
With its 4earth™ brand, Rhodia is participating in the creation of innovative recycling outlets for various polyamide scraps, including post consumer ones, with the objective of offering its customers a high-performance recycled material under optimal conditions of security.
More than a product
Rhodia’s 4earth™ contract links it together with each of its partners in a closed loop in which each party becomes a customer and supplier of the other. This makes Rhodia the first company to overcome three frequent obstacles to the recycled products market:
its supply is guaranteed by sustainable sources provided by its partners
the consistent quality of its recycled products is guaranteed, and finally
long-term economic viability is ensured.
Other advantages of 4earth™ products include their technical competitiveness with non-recycled products and their environmental benefits, which are duly measured on a case by case basis by the Life Cycle Assessment method.
