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. 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 Industries AG, Essen/Germany, is addressing the increasing market demand for sustainable products and is expanding its sustainable product portfolio. Dynacoll eCO features identical physical and chemical properties as compared with the traditional Dynacoll product portfolio. This means that customers do not have to carry out any additional evaluation, nor do they have to adjust their formulations. Customers who buy mass-balanced products can use them in the traditional way and benefit from the same qualities.
Since December 2022, the Dynacoll production facilities in Marl and Witten, both Germany, have been certified by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) organization, Cologne/Germany, 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.
