New sustainable solutions to increase the recycling content in the polymer industry.

Calcium carbonate significantly enhances the mechanical properties of recycled resins, reducing the need for downcycling and promoting a more sustainable production process.

The use of calcium carbonate in recycling not only improves the recycling process and the quality of the final product, but also contributes to a more circular economy by reducing the need for new raw materials.

PO Recycling

For producers with sustainability targets that include the use of post-consumer or post-industrial recycled polyolefins, calcium carbonates can have a significant impact.


Our products allow the use of a wider range of recycled polyolefin feedstocks and improve their mechanical properties at a lower overall cost and a lower carbon footprint.

Recycled calcium carbonate

Omya’s commitment to circularity has led to the development of the Omyaloop product family, which is based on certified 100% recycled calcium carbonate from selected plants.


The Omyaloop grades increase the recycled content in compounds and final polymer applications, offering customers a sustainable solution that aligns with their sustainability targets.

Recycled engineered materials

As the world’s primary raw materials become depleted and consumers become more aware of the environmental impact, post-consumer and industrial waste streams are becoming more important in the polymers market.


Our goal is to provide customers with renewably sourced and recycled content that also meets the functional requirements of the application.
