By using Neste’s renewable hydrocarbons in its product development, Clariant increases the number of products in its portfolio that are derived from renewable raw materials. As a result, sustainable solutions become more accessible to a variety of industries, including adhesives, plastics and coatings.
Clariant’s Licocene® performance polymers and waxes are already highly-valued by the adhesives, plastics and coatings industry for their ability to offer superior sustainability and performance in use. Through the partnership with Neste, Clariant can offer sustainable polyolefin solutions derived from renewable hydrocarbons.
The raw materials, C2/C3 monomers, are derived from Neste’s renewable hydrocarbons produced from 100% renewable feedstock that originates from waste and residue raw materials, such as used cooking oil, and renewable vegetable oils. These C2 and C3 monomers provide drop-in replacements for those currently used by Clariant to create advanced polyolefin solutions for a wide range of applications.
