Perstorp introduces the world’s first 2-Ethylhexanol partly based on renewables

Leading specialty chemicals innovator Perstorp introduces 2-Ethylhexanol based on 25% renewable raw material according to a traceable mass balance concept. 2-EH Pro 25 is designed to reduce the carbon footprint throughout the value chain where it is used to support sustainable sourcing of renewable and recycled raw materials. It is the latest addition to Perstorp’s rapidly expanding ISCC PLUS-certified portfolio of Pro-Environment products.

The new product grade is the world’s first 2-EH partly based on renewable raw materials, reinforcing Perstorp’s position as a sustainable solutions provider meeting the growing demand for more sustainable alternatives in various applications. Perstorp’s Pro-Environment Oxo portfolio now includes acids, plasticizers and alcohols.

Based on a mass balance concept applying chemical and physical traceability, Pro-Environment products are chemically identical to their fossil-based counterparts, offering the same quality without trade-off in performance. The difference lies in the origin of the raw materials, being renewable or recycled instead of virgin fossil-based. 2-EH Pro 25 can therefore be considered a drop-in replacement, ready to be used in existing formulations.

2-EH is widely used in the production of plasticizers in flexible vinyl applications, acrylates, lubrication oil additives, and as a main ingredient in cetane enhancers for diesel fuel. With 2-EH Pro 25, there is now a more sustainable alternative available.

‘’I am very proud to be able to offer our customers 2-EH Pro 25 with partly renewable carbon content’’, says Magnus Hindsö, Business Manager Oxo. ‘’It is truly a step in the right direction, reconfirming our commitment towards sustainability and adding value to Perstorp, our customers and the entire value chain.”

All of Perstorp’s Pro-Environment products are certified according to the sustainability certification system ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification). ISCC PLUS provides companies, brand owners, and consumers the assurance that high sustainability requirements are met. Perstorp’s Pro-Environment products and mass balance method, as well as greenhouse gas-calculations are ISCC PLUS certified.

Over the last few years, Perstorp has significantly expanded its portfolio of Pro-Environment products, made from mass balanced renewable or recycled raw materials, to cover polyols, plasticizers, acids, and alcohols.
