New odor elimination technology that is targeted to plastics processing of filled plastic compounds and recycled post-consumer plastics has been introduced by Addisperse, a business of Aromatic Fusion Inx. (AFI), Bensalem, Penn.

The new ON line concentrates—free-flowing powder ON 106, and pellet ON 108, reportedly work on both common malodors as well as particularly challenging malodors including those experienced when using natural fillers such as lignin, algae and cellulose. The technology is said to be based on chemicals that interact with malodorous volatiles in the vapor stage, resulting in elimination of the odor. Addisperse can also formulate concentrates tailored to specific customer needs. Samples are available.

    Plastics are going “green,” but they will need some help to get there. Biodegradable polymers derived from renewable resources are attracting lots of interest and publicity, but that enthusiasm is counterbalanced by persistent questions of availability, cost, performance, and processability. All these issues are inter-related: Increasing demand will lead to more capacity, which will presumably lead to lower prices. But the foundation is market demand, which ultimately depends on whether biopolymers will have the performance properties and processability to compete with existing non-renewable plastics.
