Caustic DEC and Tracelight DEC are part of the Decarbia reduced carbon portfolio and help customers create more sustainable solutions
Dow launched two caustic soda products - Caustic DEC and Tracelight DEC, part of Dow’s Decarbia portfolio of reduced-carbon solutions, with up to 90% lower carbon dioxide.
Powered by renewable energy, this electrolysis production process helps lower our customers` Scope 3 emissions, thereby supporting their sustainability goals while maintaining the same product quality. The electrolysis process is also certified by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS auditing program using a mass balance approach.
Within Europe, Dow’s caustic soda production plants in Stade and Schkopau in Germany achieved the ISCC PLUS third-party qualification this year. Customers can now benefit from high-quality caustic soda solutions for a variety of industrial and food applications with externally verified sustainability benefits.
"On our accelerated journey towards carbon neutrality, we continue to implement technologies that enable low-carbon solutions. As one of the largest caustic soda producers in Europe, decarbonizing our product portfolio is a major step towards a more sustainable future, as caustic soda is used in a broad range of end applications,” said Andrew Jones, Global Business Director, Dow Chlor-Alkali & Vinyl (CAV) & Propylene Oxide/Propylene Glycol (POPG). “With our latest range of renewable power enabled solutions, our customers will continue to benefit from the same high-quality products with a reduced carbon footprint.”
This latest development is part of Dow’s accelerating efforts to incorporate sustainability into every step of a product’s lifecycle as it progresses on its journey to a low-carbon and circular future.
