New sustainable solution to increase the recycling content in the polymer industry
Be part of the solution with Omyaloop FC, made from 100% recycled materials
The Omyaloop product range is made of 100% recovered calcium carbonate from other industries that would otherwise be disposed as waste and has therefore obtained the Bureau Veritas certification.
Thanks to the new and broad Omyaloop FC product portfolio, it is easy to replace calcium carbonate in existing recipes with Omyaloop FC, thus improving the sustainability and the recycling content of the final product.
Complies with food contact certification
Calcium carbonate is well known in the polymer industry as a mineral modifier, providing different functionalities and optimizing overall cost.
To meet the recent stringent demand of the industry for more recycled materials, Omya has developed a new recycled calcium carbonate that also complies with the most common food contact legislations such as EU 10/2011 and FDA enabling its use in food contact applications.
Optimize costs in compounding, injection and extrusion
Omyaloop FC performs as efficiently as conventional calcium carbonate in compounding and extrusion and can therefore be used as a 1:1 replacement in the most common polymer processing methods.
Omyaloop FC’s benefits
Made of 100% recycled calcium carbonate
Bureau Veritas certification according to ISO 14021
Compliant with most common food contact legislations
Increases the recycled content of the final product
Omya has a highly experienced technical services team which supports customers throughout the process of product development. Our pilot compounding and production lines combined with our extensive testing laboratories enable process optimization and product innovation.
Calcium carbonates, such as limestone, marble and chalk are natural and renewable. It is continuously replenished by natural cycles in rivers, lakes, and oceans or formed as minerals, for example, from shells or skeletons.
The production of calcium carbonate does not involve any energy-intensive processes, leaving the carbon footprint substantially lower than that of any polymer resin. Calcium carbonate also meets the criteria for a renewable material.
Omyaloop earns Frost & Sullivan’s 2022 European New Product Innovation Award in the sustainable mining solutions category.
