INEOS Nitriles has launched its first bio-attributed product line for Acrylonitrile. The new product is to be sold under the Invireo brand. Invireo represents innovation in the global acrylonitrile market and offers a more climate-friendly and sustainable alternative to existing acrylonitrile.

Manufactured at INEOS Nitriles’ site in Cologne Germany, Invireo is made using bio-attributed propylene, which enables the replacement of fossil fuel resources. INEOS Nitriles’ certification by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC Plus) and Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) allows the use of bio, bio-circular and circular feedstock into the supply chain according to a mass balance approach.

Acrylonitrile is essential to, and successfully used in, a variety of industrial applications such as wind turbines, automotive, aerospace, textile, chemicals for special applications and sporting goods. These applications are essential to our everyday life and it is important that we continue to serve society’s needs, whilst continually reducing carbon emissions.

Hans Casier, CEO at INEOS Nitriles said, “Through our sustainability programme we have developed this new, bio-based product line. InvireoTM supports our customers with drop-in products that meet their rigorous quality and performance requirements. At the same time, they move the industry closer towards a lower-carbon economy for acrylonitrile without compromising the unique product qualities.”

Alice Dibben, Sustainability Manager for INEOS Nitriles said, “Invireo is a clear example of our ongoing commitment to accelerate progress towards a lower carbon future. It is a major step forward in INEOS’ journey to sustainability and demonstrates our dedication to developing innovative solutions that address our customers and society’s needs.”
