INEOS Inovyn has announced a new Ultra Low Carbon range (ULC) of Chlor-Alkali products that reduce the carbon footprint of caustic soda, caustic potash and chlorine by up to 70% compared to industry averages.

The new range uses renewable energy sources to power INEOS Inovyn manufacturing sites. The first production sites include Rafnes in Norway, which uses local hydroelectric power and Antwerp in Belgium, where electricity comes directly from North Sea wind turbines.

Customers using the ULC Chlor-Alkali range will now be able to significantly reduce their scope 3 emissions, to develop sustainable downstream products which address their own market needs. The range is certified under the ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) PLUS scheme.

INEOS Inovyn, Europe’s largest Chlor-Alkali producer already provides a range of standard products with the lowest industry carbon footprint in Europe, recognised through its Environmental Product Declarations (EPD).

Arnaud Valenduc, Business Director, INEOS Inovyn said, "We provide sustainable leadership through innovation, the new Ultra Low Carbon range is a critical step in helping our customers reduce the impact of their product offerings and accelerate the transition towards a Net Zero economy."

"INEOS Inovyn’s standard Chlor-Alkali portfolio already offers 30% lower GreenHouse Gas emission than the European industry average. With the launch of our new ULC range this gap increases to 70% for caustic soda, helping customers meet their ambitious GHG reduction targets," added Arnaud Valenduc.
