BioVinyl – A sustainable vinyl record
In cooperation with PlastChem, optimal media has developed an innovative product that is being offered worldwide for the first time and exclusively by us – the BioVinyl. BioVinyl is a sustainable product made from bio-based PVC (polyvinyl chloride). The petroleum previously required for PVC production is replaced here by recycling used cooking oil or industrial waste gases. Through the use of renewable energies and recycled raw materials, CO2 emissions are significantly reduced. In line with its sustainability strategy, optimal media always pursues the principle of avoidance, reduction and reuse in order to handle valuable resources responsibly. In addition to energy-efficient production facilities, the first sustainable vinyl record was introduced as early as 2020. The ReVinyl, which is pressed on the basis of 100 percent recycled material from the in-house production process, and has since been
offered in both black and random colour mixes.
