Ecoresin Presentation Transcript

  • 1. ECO RESINS Replacing petroleum based chemicals with biobased renewable feedstocks
  • 2. ECO RESINS Replacing petroleum based chemicals with biobased renewable feedstocks Our goal is to create high performance eco resins that optimize the sustainability of our customers' end products while improving performance and cost. We've replaced petroleum based chemicals with biobased renewable feedstocks. We are able to lower our resins' environmental impact from processing by employing bioderived materials sourced as co-products or from the waste stream of other bio-refining processes
  • 3. By employing green chemistry techniques that require less energy and produce less harmful byproducts we are able to lower the CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from our resins due to processing. Using Life Cycle Analysis techniques based on the ISO 14044:2006 standard, we quantify our reduction of GHG from production by 50% over conventional petroleum based epoxies*, thus lowering the overall carbon footprint of the products that employ our materials.
  • 4. We believe by replacing fossil based carbon usage with biobased "living carbon" that is either shared with or from the waste stream of other industrial processes; we can help to further reduce this deficit in GHG production from our resins. By using biobased materials that already have industrial importance, our biobased materials do not compete with food sources or displace other food-based agriculture products.
