Replacing Fossil-Based Ethylene and Propylene

Neste and Clariant Develop Sustainable Industrial Solutions

The provider of sustainable renewable diesel and expert in delivering drop-in renewable chemical solutions Neste Oyi, Espoo, Finland and Clariant AG, Muttenz, Switzerland, an expert in specialty chemicals, have signed an agreement for a new partnership to join forces in developing and making new sustainable material solutions accessible to a variety of industries.

In the first phase of the partnership, companies will start replacing fossil-based ethylene and propylene used in Clariant’s hot-melt adhesives, with monomers derived from renewable feedstock. This is enabled by turning Neste’s renewable hydrocarbons – produced 100% from renewable raw materials, such as waste and residue fats and oils as well as vegetable oils – into ethylene and propylene for Clariant’s products.

In a later phase, the companies want to develop other sustainable additive solutions derived from renewable raw materials for plastics and coatings applications. This should enable the two companies to help various sustainability-focused brand owners – such as those producing furniture, sporting goods, hygiene products, electronics, and automotives – to increase their bio-based offering while also reducing crude oil dependency and climate emissions.

"Combining Clariant’s know-how in the varying applications of adhesives, plastics, and coatings, with Neste’s knowledge and experience in working with bio-based materials to produce a variety of drop-in renewable solutions, enables both companies to develop their sustainable material offering to provide maximum added value not only to sustainable brands in varying industries but also to their customers,” says Peter Vanacker, President & CEO from Neste.
