With the ambition to become one of the most sustainable material science companies, Dow is using a variety of approaches to bring sustainable solutions to the marketplace: Design For Recycling, Mechanical Recycling, Alternative Feedstocks and Advanced Recycling. This paper will give an overview of these approaches and will highlight several current examples from Dow’s product lines of relevance to the adhesives and sealants industries. A particular focus will be placed on Polyolefin Elastomers for hot melt adhesives and how polymer design enables design for recycling, how polymer design can impact carbon footprints during application and how renewable feedstocks can be used to  further reduce the overall carbon footprint and enable more sustainable solutions for the hot melt adhesives market.
