Clariant has signed an agreement for a new partnership with Neste on the supply of renewable hydrocarbons for its product development. In this way, the speciality chemicals company intends to increase the number of products in its portfolio that are derived from renewable raw materials.

Muttenz/Switzerland — As a result of the cooperation, sustainable solutions become more accessible to a variety of industries, including adhesives, plastics and coatings, the company announced.

According to Christian Kohlpaintner, Member of Clariant’s Executive Committee, sustainability is one of the manufacturer's five strategic pillars. This new partnership was a significant milestone in providing a sustainable future, he added. Through the partnership the company can offer sustainable polyolefin solutions derived from renewable hydrocarbons.

The raw materials, C2/C3 monomers, are derived from Neste’s renewable hydrocarbons produced from 100 % renewable feedstock that originates from waste and residue raw materials, such as used cooking oil, and renewable vegetable oils. These C2 and C3 monomers provide drop-in replacements for those currently used by Clariant to create advanced polyolefin solutions for a wide range of applications.
