The green choice

Our monomers are being used by customers today for a broad range of highly demanding applications like bioplastics, coatings, adhesives, plasticizers, and in other biobased plastics like PBS and PEF.

Versatility is the key to our performance monomers.

Biobased lactides for PLA

For the plastics industry we offer via our Joint Venture with Total polylactide resins for high performance PLA (poly lactic acid) - a biobased plastic with a low carbon footprint that’s used in packaging,  man-made fibers and non-wovens, electronics and automotive markets.

In packaging alone, PLA can be thermoformed, injection and blow molded, blown to thin films, and foamed. Our high-heat PLA technology can help in manufacturing articles that withstand boiling water, which opens up new bioplastic application possibilities – for example, as hot food clamshells, hot beverage cups and hot noodle containers. Read more>>

Building blocks for CASE resins

For the coatings industry, biobased building blocks like PURALACT® are improving polyester and alkyd resins for industrial and architectural coatings. How? Through reduced resin viscosity, improved carbon footprint and better overall performance. Read more>> 

Biobased FDCA for PEF

Our fermentation-based furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) replaces terephthalic acid (PTA) in PET polyester, predominantly for bottles and rigid food packaging PEF is superior to PET in several ways. It’s more versatile, with 6 times’ better gas barrier properties, which opens up entirely new application areas. Long-term, it also provides attractive costs thanks to a greater low-cost Ethylene Glycol monomer content (w/w). And it’s kind to the planet, with a lower carbon footprint than PET.  Read more>>
