The proposed new EU ELV directive requires automotive OEMs to manufacture cars with at least 25% recycled materials by 2030. But a new additive is needed to tackle the malodors from recycled materials.
Virgin PP plastic dashboard with AqFresh has 1.5pts less VOCS/odours
By compounding AqFresh odor elimination technology into polypropylene, dashboard material has been produced with significantly reduced VOCs/odors – 1.5pts lower in VDA-270 C3 industry standard tests.
AqFresh reduced recycled PP plastic dashboard material to below 3.0 on VDA-270 C3.
AqFresh technology has been incorporated into 100% recycled polypropylene dashboard material to significantly reduce its VOCs/odors.
Patented odor-elimination technology
AqFresh is a revolutionary odor elimination technology that removes VOCs, odors and pollutants. It uses cucurbiturils – barrel-shaped molecules with a unique symmetrical structure: a hollow, hydrophobic cavity and polar portals – to quickly capture and eliminate unwanted molecules.
It has a broad range of applications and is being formulated into a wide range of car parts including rigid plastics for dashboards, coated textiles for car seats and nonwovens for headliners.
