Bio-sourced PVC foot prosthesis plus recycling

OHLA_Picture2OHLA Plast & Färgteknik created foot prosthesis from BIOVYN and other CO2-neutral plasticisers, with a complete circular system of recycling for all manufacturing waste as well as end-of-life-products. One of our main products are PVC foot prosthesis, created by pouring PVC plastisol into a mould. In field testing we discovered the CO2-neutral formulation was not only more environmentally friendly, but four times more wear-resistant. A producer of PVC flooring will ground down used prosthesis, giving the material a new lease of life of 20-30 years.
