NKT has recycled XLPE material minimising the carbon footprint of its solutions. The recycling process has been developed in a research project with the Swedish research institute RISE IVF, AXJO Plastic and Borealis.
NKT has industrialised the process of recycling XLPE in close collaboration with AXJO Plastic which is now manufacturing cable drums from the recycled XLPE material. As the XLPE insulation often accounts for a substantial part of its power cables, NKT is working closely with material supplier Borealis to discover and develop sustainable solutions with XLPE material for the power cable industry.
