Virgin and recycled polypropylene based compounds
Based on MOL Group’s 2030+ Strategy, our business is on track to be transformed into a more efficient, sustainable, chemicals-focused leading industry player in the next decade and, by 2050, will be a net zero emitter. As part of these ambitions, we are reshaping our value chain by expanding it to include specialties, allowing us to become a full-solution provider and exploit the opportunities arising from the surge in demand not just for polymers, but also in compounds, mainly in the automotive, home appliances, electronics and furniture industries in Central and Eastern Europe as well as Western Europe.
As a first step towards our goal to be a leading PP compounder in CEE by 2030, MOL Group acquired Aurora Kunststoffe GmbH in October 2019. Aurora is a German compounder supplying mainly the automotive segment with 100% post-industrial recyclate-based PA, PP, ABS/PC, ASA and other compounds to more than 300 customers in Europe.
Together with Aurora, MOL now has the technology and the knowledge — from modifying the polymer matrix structure — to perform the scaling up process of a developed compound in-house, even for smaller batches. Our main goal is to provide flexibility when it comes to tailor-made solutions and development for market requirements.
A circular economy is also high on the agenda of MOL Group’s 2030+ Strategy. As part of our move toward sustainability, we are continuously developing not only post-industrial, but also post-consumer recyclate-based polyolefins and compounds — reacting to future needs for sustainable requirements on the market.
MOL Group and Aurora are continuously developing various glass-filled, mineral-filled and recyclate-based PP compound granules (with up to 100% recyclate content) for the following applications:
- Interior automotive parts (door, seat, dashboard and central console components).
- Exterior automotive parts (light housing, wheel archer fender, shroud, front-end module).
- Under-the-hood automotive parts (HVAC components, tanks, water deflector, engine cover, filter housings, etc).
- Other applications (home appliances, furniture).
