MOSCOW (MRC) -- With its launch of DYNACOLL eCO polyesters, Evonik is contributing to the transition from fossil to renewable resources, for which its Coating & Adhesive Resins business line is pursuing the mass balance approach, said the company.
The new line of polyesters enables cost-effective and rapid change of production on a large scale, helping to meet Evonik’s environmental and sustainability targets.
With the new product range, Evonik is addressing the increasing market demand for sustainable products. "Our customers are looked for quick and easy solutions for defossilization and decarbonization. Our DYNACOLL eCO products enabled our customers to reach their targets and strengthen the circular economy," explains Thorsten Marin, vice president of polyesters & polyolefins. "With this product launch, we are expanded our sustainable product portfolio while contributing to Evonik’s sustainability goals."
DYNACOLL eCO features identical physical and chemical properties as compared with the traditional DYNACOLL product portfolio. "Our customers did not have to carry out any additional evaluation, nor did they have to adjust their formulations. Customers who buy mass-balanced products used them in the traditional way and benefit from the same quality," says Dr. Zuhal Tuncay, global senior marketing manager for polyesters.
Since December 2022, the DYNACOLL production facilities in Marl and Witten have been certified by the ISCC organization to operate under the ISCC PLUS certification scheme based on the mass balance approach. This certification ensures full traceability of the sustainable materials used in Evonik’s production plants and confirms that the raw materials used originate from sustainable sources. In addition to strict sustainability principles, high ecological standards and social responsibility are also guaranteed.
DYNACOLL products are well established polyester polyols and copolyesters for hot-melt adhesives used, for example, in wood working, automotive, and textile applications. The brand has been well recognized for its high quality for decades.
We remind, Evonik is expanding its capacity to produce MetAMINO (DL-methionine) on Jurong Island, Singapore, by 40,000 metric tons to around 340,000 metric tons per year. The high double-digit million euro investment in this further technological development is to reach target capacity by the third quarter of 2024. The planned process optimization measures will improve the carbon footprint of MetAMINO® produced in Singapore by six percent.
