Henkel, a manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and functional coatings, including the Loctite brand, is partnering with TerraCycle to become the first company to offer a recycling solution for anaerobic adhesives. Through the Adhesive Recycling Program, Henkel customers can purchase a postage-paid recycling box that they fill with empty Loctite adhesive containers and send to TerraCycle for processing. TerraCycle will thermally treat the containers and turn them into new plastic products.
Sustainability is one of Henkel’s core corporate values. By the year 2030, the company aims to triple efficiency by reducing its products’ environmental footprint at every stage of the product life cycle. The Adhesive Recycling Program aligns with that initiative, diverting used Loctite containers from local landfills and incinerators.
