Nordmann’s sustainable portfolio for the plastics industry 

sustainability, Nordmann, overview

Sustainability isn’t just optional these days, it’s a necessity. The demands placed on modern plastics have changed significantly over the last few years, which is why Nordmann is now offering more and more products from renewable and/or sustainable sources.

We guide our customers through the selection process to find raw materials and additives that support product durability and recyclability. We also aid our business partners in finding the best solutions for the challenges they face and help them think through product life cycles to optimize sustainability.

We are constantly developing our portfolio of high-demand products, and below you‘ll see an overview of the versatile range of sustainable raw materials we currently carry.

CirKular+TM, Kraton, Polymers

Kraton supplies innovative solutions for recyclers, converters and brand owners alike with the CirKular+™ product line, specifically designed for upcycling  plastics and modifying bioplastics.


These compounds serve to reduce and optimize the consumption of resources while supporting the re-use of plastics and plastic waste.

Biofibre® Sustra, Compounds

Biofibre®’s novel bioplastic is a compound featuring natural fibers and a (bio)polymer matrix. Made with fewer fossil raw materials, it has a significantly lower CO2 footprint.

Bio-based PVC compounds, TPV Compound

Originating largely from biomass (up to 60-80%), these new compounds meet the international 3-star certification of TÜV Austria for bio-based carbon content (BCC).

PLA bioplastic, TotalEnergies


Polylactide (PLA) from TotalEnergies Corbion is a non-naturally occurring polyester synthesized from sugar through a multistep process. This new generation of sustainable and environmentally friendly bioplastics performs better than those based on fossil fuels, while only emitting a third as much CO2.

Cevo®, VOELPKER, wax additives

The wax blends from VOELPKER improve flow properties and surface quality as well as the dispersion of fillers and pigments. Products from the company’s Plastic Recycling Series allow for the production of exceptionally high-quality recyclates.

Nordmann's NORANTOX®, Antioxidants &

UV stabilizers

Under the brand name NORANTOX®, Nordmann offers its own range of antioxidants and UV stabilizers. The products are not only used to make new plastics but also recycled materials.
