Polyram Group, a supplier of fiber reinforced thermoplastics, says that it plans to incorporate a new bio-based material into its compounds.

The company will use UBQ, a resin substitute made from unsorted household waste, including all organics, according to its manufacturer, UBQ Materials.

‘Materials created through this partnership offer significant environmental benefits, from replacing virgin materials to reducing emissions, all without compromising on functionality or profitability,’ claimed Albert Douer, chairman and Co-CEO of UBQ Materials.

Polyram makes industrial products for a variety of industries including automotive, water irrigation, electronics and packaging. The new compounds will incorporate up to 40% UBQ loading.
