announced another milestone in the decarbonization of its acrylic
production chain, as the company obtains ISCC+ certification for its acrylic acid and ester production facility located in Taixing, Jiangsu Province, China. The Taixing site stands as the first acrylic monomers plant in China to receive ISCC+ certification
"Developing bio-attributed materials using a mass balance approach
is a fast and complementary pathway to support our customers in the region with drop-in high-performance solutions, more circular sourcing, and to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions," said Hervé Castres Saint Martin, global group president, Acrylic Monomers.
Arkema expects that in the near future, the production of certified bio-attributed materials will extend to North America, complementing the previously certified acrylic monomers production in Carling, France. This global dynamic will support the progressive introduction of Arkema's complete range of bio-attributed specialty resins and additives for the low VOC and lower carbon intensive technologies including high solid, waterborne, UV/LED, and polyester powders.
This leading offer will enable customers and global partners to develop next generation sustainable
materials for specialty coatings & adhesives applications in electronics, electric vehicle batteries, new energies, 3D printing, as well as home energy efficiency and living comfort improvement.
"This achievement reflects another stride in Arkema's global initiative to support the shift towards a more circular and lower carbon economy," said Alan Koo, regional president Acrylic Monomers, Asia. Â
