BOLINGBROOK,US: Elevance Renewable Sciences Inc and Paris-based Hutchinson Worldwide announce a collaboration to validate the use of Elevance’s renewable products for use as processing aids in Hutchinson’s rubber compounds.

“With more than 21 million tonne of rubber consumed globally, there is a growing need to replace petroleum-based processing oils in rubber to achieve both sustainability and performance goals. Our collaboration with Hutchinson has been focused on this need and work to-date has demonstrated early technical success,” said Andy Shafer, Executive Vice President, Sales and Market Development, Elevance.

The collaboration will combine the innovation, rubber formulation expertise and manufacturing capabilities of Hutchinson with Elevance’s metathesis technology and products to make rubber production more environmentally sustainable and provide an alternative to petroleum-based raw materials.

“Elevance’s products offer a unique, renewable solution that is of significant interest to our company’s customers,” said Benoit Le Rossignol, Vice President, Material Development, Hutchinson.
