PERSTORP, SWEDEN: Perstorp has launched two new renewable polyols – Evyron and Neeture, this follows the launch of world’s first renewable Penta, known as Voxtar in 2010. Voxtar can reduce carbon footprint by up to 80 percent compared to fossil alternatives. The addition of two new innovative products; Evyron (partly renewable TMP) and Neeture (partly renewable Neo) will give Perstorp’s customers a clear market advantage in creating pro-environmental low carbon footprint products.

“The time is right to add two new renewable polyols. The market demand for bio-based material is rapidly increasing due to a strong focus on sustainable chemistry and renewable raw materials. We are committed to our environmental responsibility as well as to helping our customers in their sustainable development. We are dedicated to our pro-environment products, giving prioritized supply for pro-environmental partners at all times,” said Anna Berggren, Global Market Segment Manager for Resins at Perstorp

Committed to the pro-environmental walk

Perstorp’s commitment to sustainability runs deep in the company led by CEO, Jan Secher. “This launch is a great achievement and I’m very proud of the engagement from our employees. It’s clear that we are looking to make a difference. Sustainability is in the core of everything we do which also makes it a perfect strategic fit.”

Perstorp’s new pro-environment portfolio is a great example of how they intend to work towards their 2030 ambition to become Finite Material Neutral. “It is a tough ambition but we have to do it. There is no plan B, because we only have one planet,” Jan continues.

Currently Perstorp is devoting 80 percent of its R&D resources to finding new sustainable solutions and in addition, all Perstorp Swedish plants will switch to using only renewable electricity in 2018. “With the new pro-environment products, we are launching at China Coat, we are reaffirming that we believe our molecules can change things for the better,” Jan concluded.

Good for business and good for the environment

The two new pro-environment Polyols – Evyron and Neeture - complete the portfolio of the three essential polyols in renewable options. The new portfolio is based on a certified mass balance concept. Mass balance is about mixing fossil and renewable in the same existing systems but keeping track of their quantities and allocating them to specific products. This ensures that the quality and performance of the molecules are exactly the same giving customers a real go-pro-environmental choice.

Perstorp’s pro-environment polyols are all ISCC certified which among other things ensures a traceability of the bio-based raw material back to its country of origin.

Anna Berggren highlighted: “The bio-based material in our products is sustainably sourced and I am proud to say that Perstorp launches world´s first portfolio of renewable polyols. And even better, they will also be the first to become ISCC certified.”
