Sweden: Bio-Based Material Perstorp Launches Portfolio of Renewable Polyols
In addition to the first renewable Penta called Voxtar, Perstorp has now added two new bio-based products to its portfolio: Evyron (partly renewable TMP) and Neeture (partly renewable Neo).
Malmö/Sweden — The market demand for bio-based material is rapidly increasing due to a strong focus on sustainable chemistry and renewable raw materials. With the addition of renewable polyols, the company intends to prioritize the supply of pro-environmental partners.
Anna Berggren, Global Market Segment Manager for Resins at Perstorp commented: “We are committed to our environmental responsibility as well as to helping our customers in their sustainable development."
The new product portfolio is in line with the company's ambition to become Finite Material Neutral by 2030.
Currently, Perstorp is devoting 80 % of its R&D resources to finding new sustainable solutions and in addition, all Swedish plants will switch to using only renewable electricity in 2018, the company announced. “With the new pro-environment products we are launching at China Coat, we are reaffirming that we believe our molecules can change things for the better,” CEO Jan Secher concludes.
The new products are based on a certified mass balance concept. Mass balance is about mixing fossil and renewable in the same existing systems but keeping track of their quantities and allocating them to specific products. This ensures that the quality and performance of the molecules are exactly the same.
The new polyols are all ISCC certified which among other things ensures a traceability of the bio-based raw material back to its country of origin. Sales of the Polyols will start January 1, 2018.
