Rhodia introduces eco-friendly solvent

 

PARIS, FRANCE/CRANBURY, US:  The new oxygenated solvent from Rhodia, Rhodiasolv IRIS, has been registered in the European Community (compliant to REACH regulation), the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA), with the Australian, Japanese, South Korean authorities and on commercial list in China. The registration of this solvent enables Rhodia to produce, import and market Rhodiasolv IRIS in Europe, the USA, Australia, Japan, South Korea and China.

 

“Rhodia developed Rhodiasolv IRIS in order to respond to the strong demand from our customer for “green” product to improve the health, safety and environmental profile of their manufacturing process and products. The registration of Rhodiasolv IRIS on product inventories around the world is a key to the successful commercial development of this product,” stated Adrian Archer, Business Development Director, Rhodia.

 

Rhodiasolv® IRIS is a new eco-friendly solvent used in numerous fields of application. It is low VOC, non-toxic, readily biodegradable and non-flammable, representing a sustainable alternative to a range of more traditional solvents.

 

Rhodiasolv IRIS is the result of work carried out by Rhodia’s Research & Development platform aimed at creating sustainable solvents capable of being technically high performing, efficient, non-toxic and eco-friendly. Rhodia recently began production of Rhodiasolv IRIS in 2008 in order to support the increasing market demand for this type of solvent.
