France’s Arkema launches eco-friendly powder coating with recycled PET

Arkema, a leader in specialty materials, announces a breakthrough in new manufacturing processes that integrate up to 40% post-consumer recycled content from end-of-life packaging products into its powder coating resins. This new technology will empower end markets to better respond to increasing societal expectations to preserve resources and reduce climate impact.

Powder coating is a solvent-free, low-waste technology, which can now be made more circular by including recycled content. Arkema’s new recycled based powder resin innovation uses post-consumer PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) coming from end-of-life packaging as an alternative to traditional fossil based raw materials to create products containing up to 40% recycled PET and reducing PCF (Product Carbon Footprint) by up to 20%.

Arkema has integrated up to 40 per cent post-consumer recycled PET into powder coating resins, reducing Product Carbon Footprint by up to 20 per cent.
This supports circular, high-performance solutions and sustainable lifestyles.
Arkema, with Adhesive Solutions, Advanced Materials, and Coating Solutions, achieved €9.5 billion in 2023 sales across 55 countries.


“Alongside our Bio-based and Mass Balance offers, increasingly incorporating recycled feedstocks is another step towards ensuring more circular high-performance solutions and a more sustainable lifestyle. Arkema’s new recycled based powder resins further enrich sustainable solutions for our partners, enabling end markets to increase the percentage of recycled content in their finished products,” said Richard Jenkins, Sr. Vice President, and member of the Executive Committee.

Building on its unique set of expertise in materials science, Arkema offers a portfolio of first-class technologies to address ever-growing demand for new and sustainable materials. With the ambition to become a pure player in Specialty Materials, the Group is structured into 3 complementary, resilient and highly innovative segments dedicated to Specialty Materials – Adhesive Solutions, Advanced Materials, and Coating Solutions – accounting for some 92% of Group sales in 2023, and a well-positioned and competitive Intermediates segment. Arkema offers cutting-edge technological solutions to meet the challenges of, among other things, new energies, access to water, recycling, urbanization and mobility, and fosters a permanent dialogue with all its stakeholders. The Group reported sales of around € 9.5 billion in 2023, and operates in some 55 countries with 21,100 employees worldwide.
