Perstorp introduces 100% renewable based 2-Ethylhexanol

Leading specialty chemicals innovator Perstorp has launched a new grade of 2-Ethylhexanol (2-EH), now available with 100% renewable, traceable mass-balanced carbon content. When including the biogenic CO2 uptake absorbed by the renewable raw materials used, the product has a negative carbon footprint cradle to Perstorp gate. Developed based on both physical and chemical traceability, 2-EH Pro 100 is designed to minimize the carbon footprint throughout the value chain, while supporting sustainable sourcing of renewable and recycled raw materials.

Offering a wide array of applications, 2-EH Pro 100 demonstrates the wide impact the chemical industry has in so many areas of life. The launch of 2-EH Pro 100 is the newest in a series of additions of 100% renewable products based on traceable mass balance to Perstorp’s Pro-Environment portfolio.

“We have launched a number of grades of partially renewable products in the past years, but these new additions are especially exciting as they are some of the first 100% renewable sourced products of this type on the market.” Remarks Betty Lu, Vice President of Business Unit Oxo and Plasticizers at Perstorp. “It showcases and further strengthens our commitment and continuous efforts to enable a sustainable transformation in the industry and value chain.”

2-EH Pro 100 is Perstorp's most recent step towards becoming Finite Material Neutral, heralding a significant shift in the industry's dependence on virgin fossil raw materials while allowing downstream industries to reduce their Scope 3 emissions while also creating products with a reduced carbon footprint, without compromising on performance.

 “The 2-EH Pro 100 will enable our customers to use 2-EH based on 100% renewable traceable mass balanced feedstock in their formulations,” says Magnus Hindsö, Business Manager for Oxo Products at Perstorp. “This will provide a significant reduction of the product carbon footprint throughout the entire value chain and support the needed transition to more sustainable chemical solutions using less finite raw materials.”
