Adhesives, Industry News, Sealants,

Perstorp has launched a new grade of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) that is available with 100% renewable, traceable mass-balanced carbon content. Developed based on both physical and chemical traceability, 2-EH Pro 100 is designed to minimize the carbon footprint throughout the value chain, while supporting sustainable sourcing of renewable and recycled raw materials.

With a wide array of applications, 2-EH Pro 100 is the newest in a series of additions of 100% renewable products based on traceable mass balance to Perstorp’s Pro-Environment portfolio including Evyron T100, Neeture N100, Valeric Acid Pro 100, and 2-EHA Pro 100.

Betty Lu, vice president of the Oxo and Plasticizers business unit at Perstorp, explained, “We have launched a number of grades of partially renewable products in the past years, but these new additions are especially exciting as they are some of the first 100% renewable sourced products of this type on the market. It showcases and further strengthens our commitment and continuous efforts to enable a sustainable transformation in the industry and value chain.”

2-EH Pro 100 is an ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) certified product. Being ISCC PLUS certified means that all sustainable raw materials are ISCC PLUS or ISCC EU certified in all parts of the value chain all the way back to the point of origin.
