MOSCOW (MRC) -- Rohm‘s trademark for methacrylate monomers, MERACRYL®, stands for high-quality products, supply reliability and excellent customer service. At EPCA 2023, Rohm is launching a resource-saving alternative to their long-established methyl methacrylate (MMA), said the company.
For MERACRYL® proTerra MMA, 30 percent fossil raw materials are substituted by sustainable raw materials from circular, recycled or biogenic sources, certified by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification ISCC PLUS. The product’s carbon footprint is reduced by 25 percent. Rohm guarantees the same specifications, quality and reliable processes.
“We are looking forward to meet our customers and industry partners at this year’s EPCA”, states Hans-Detlef Luginsland, Senior Vice President Bulk Monomers. “As European producer we are thrilled to provide a sustainable solution to our customers to support their sustainability goals. EPCA is a great opportunity to discuss the industry transformation towards sustainable and green solutions in the methacrylates industry.”
Sustainability is an integral part of Rohm’s global business strategy. By the year 2050, Rohm aims to become climate-neutral by eliminating greenhouse gas emissions. A first milestone on this path is the “Track 2030” initiative with the goal of significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions, resulting from the production or sale of Rohm products. The company has set itself an ambitious goal with the target of 30 percent per ton compared to 2020.
Rohm’s proTerra brand suffix is the quality seal for sustainable products and services that were made from sustainable raw materials, make a significant contribution to promote the circular economy and that save resources, such as raw materials, energy or water.
We remind, Rohm has spent the past 18 months on, among other things, the construction of a new innovation centre at its site in Worms, Germany. The project has now been finished and the new centre was festively opened during a ceremony attended by the managing partners of the Thelen Group, the real estate investor and general contractor for the project, and invited guests.
