Design for circularity 2
Design for circularity
  • Collaboration and joint forces along the value chain are needed to move towards a circular economy. Sukano innovates through collaboration and therefore partners with global key players in the market to maximize and diversify the use of sustainable materials.
  • Everyone should be surrounded by a safe environment to ensure global health. 
  • We deliver to the medical market and contribute to affordable medicine and vaccines for all. 
  • The SUKANO® antimicrobial masterbatch protects surfaces from serving as a transmitter of bacteria and viruses, even after being washed. 
  • Sukano recognizes and combats the problem of plastic pollution by fostering reusable materials, enabling recycling and offering bio-based, biodegradable, and marine-degradable masterbatches to the market. 
  • Our masterbatches increase the RPET quality by restoring its original properties and enabling the use of higher RPET content. Our products are designed for circularity, decreasing our reliance on virgin plastics.
  • Packaging plays a crucial role in increasing the shelf life of packaged food, keeping food fresh and safe, thus minimizing food waste which in turn reduces CO2 emissions. Sukano masterbatches are decisive to facilitate the accessibility of safe food and clean water for all. Our masterbatches are heavily used in food packaging and all our masterbatches are designed for food compliance.

  • Sukano invests in lean and sustainable operations. Our commitment to climate action was awarded an EcoVadis silver medal. 
  • Our products are circular by design. We aspire to keep the materials in the loop as long as possible, allow collection and sorting of the materials, and minimize any leakage into the open environment. Our products are made to be reused, recycled, or composted.
