Iranpolymer/Baspar LyondellBasell and Pigeon Singapore have partnered to advance sustainable research and development efforts in baby nursing bottles.
The partnership aims to transition away from using 100% virgin polypropylene resins in the production of Pigeon nursing bottles.
Pigeon is introducing a renewed series of nursing bottles that have been developed using LyondellBasell’s biobased CirculenRenew polypropylene polymers (PP).
These polymers are made from renewable feedstocks derived from bio-based wastes and residual oils, such as used cooking oils.
Use of these renewable feedstocks offers a lower carbon footprint compared to fossil-based feedstocks.
As part of the collaboration, CirculenRenew PP has been used in the cap and hood of the renewed Pigeon SofTouch T-Ester, PPSU and Glass nursing bottle and in the cap, hood and bottle of PP nursing and PP straw bottles.
