The company is in an " investigative
phase, " Hsieh said, with a
partner to fi nd an appropriate carbon
capture technology to create
polycarbonate materials and reduce

reach end users of
products to create
closed-loop mechanical recycling
for large products that use
mostly white-colored plastics,
Andrew Hsieh, Chimei's sustainable
material solutions manager,
told Plastics News.
" In China, we have several key
accounts, customers in China
that are big in home appliances

Oct. 19 news release said.
Chimei hopes its in-development
biomass feed stocks will
have the potential to replace fossil
fuel feedstocks in the future,
including biodegradable materials
for packaging applications and
other single-use applications.
" This is a brand-new area for
Chimei, a brand-new polymer, "
Hsieh said. " We're in the study
stage ... and we believe we can do
more studies like polymerization

Hsieh declined to
comment on with which
carbon capture technology
company Chimei is
partnering.
The company's production
innovation goal is to reduce
its greenhouse gas emissions
by 40 percent by 2030.
" Actually, when I was young, I
[didn't] like chemical manufacturing
companies, " Hsieh said. He
thought of them as " dangerous,
creating pollution and responsible
for huge carbon emissions. "
As a part of Chimei, Hsieh said
he feels his values are supported
as the company works toward its
goal of being " a sustainable and
responsible producer in the supply
chain. "
" We drive ourselves to be a
better material supplier from our
production [and] energy usage, "
he added.
" Ecologue is more than just a
catalog of sustainable materials, "
Hsieh said in the release.
" Through Ecologue, Chimei will
initiate discussions that drive
collaboration among colleagues
and partners, across the whole
value chain, transforming dialogue
into practical steps that
improve the sustainability of performance
materials. "
Taiwan-based Chimei is a resin
supplier that designs and manufactures
polymer materials, synthetic
rubbers and specialty chemicals.
This is a brand-new area for Chimei,
a brand-new polymer. We're in the
study stage ... and we believe we can
do more studies like polymerization and
compounding techniques. Maybe next
year we can create some samples for our
customers and do some tests. "
