Allnex turns its alkyd product line more sustainable
Allnex announces that its Liquid Resins & Additives (LRA) business line will switch to the use of partially, mass balanced, biobased pentaerythritol in all alkyds produced at our European sites in the second quarter of this year.
According to the company, this measure will increase the bio-content of its water borne and solvent borne alkyds by 25%. This additional bio-content will increase the relatively high bio-content of the alkyds, and the total bio-content of some products will exceed 60%.
As a result of this transition, Allnex expects to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1 kiloton per year.
