Based on renewable glycerol, Epicerol is the most sustainable ECH in terms of CO2 emissions and process environmental performance.  It is a chemical intermediate for a wide range of industries, including epoxy resins for coatings and composites.

The certificate covers the manufacture of bio-based epichlorohydrin (ECH), using Solvay’s innovative technology, from vegetable glycerol derived from biodiesel and oleochemical production. ABT is the first bio-based chemical operator in Asia to obtain RSB certification.
