Sustainable Materials Reduce Up to 99 % of Carbon Footprint with Bio-Attributed Styrenics
Ineos Styrolution has launched two new sustainable drop-in solutions which are produced from styrene by making use of renewable feedstock. The new materials have the potential to reduce carbon footprint between 77 % and 99 %.
Frankfurt/Germany – Ineos Styrolution has recently introduced new NAS Eco and Luran Eco sustainable drop-in solutions based on a mass balance process certified by ISCC PLUS. The products are based on styrene being produced using renewable feedstock that is not in competition with food production, such as kitchen waste and wood waste.
The carbon footprint reduction for the new products varies between 77 % and 99 % when compared to the respective fossil-based products, depending on the amount of renewable feedstock used to produce a material.
The new materials have identical physical and mechanical properties as their fossil-based counterparts Luran and NAS, enabling a direct replacement for customers seeking to step up their sustainability efforts.
Production of the new materials will be in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
