Perstorp has launched new grades for carboxylic acids which are now available with 100% renewable, traceable mass balanced content and the market’s lowest product carbon footprint.

The new products, Valeric Acid Pro 100 and 2-Ethylhexanoic Acid Pro 100, represent the latest stride in Perstorp's mission 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 Scope 3 emissions.

Developed based on a traceable mass balance concept, Valeric Acid Pro 100 and 2-EHA Pro 100 are designed to minimize the carbon footprint2 throughout the value chain, supporting sustainable sourcing of renewable and recycled raw materials.

“The synthetic lubricant industry is inherently a sustainable industry.” Says Dr. Valentina Serra Holm, Perstorp’s Vice President of Engineered Fluids. “The use of synthetic lubricants is making a positive impact by reducing the energy used and extending the lifetime of parts. Now, in addition to sustainable applications, we can proudly offer a wide range of more sustainable building blocks for polyol esters.”

 By introducing Valeric Acid Pro 100 and 2-EHA Pro 100 to its Pro-Environment portfolio, Perstorp continues to demonstrate its steadfast commitment to a sustainable future.

“Mass balance, with chemical and physical traceability, is a crucial methodology that contributes traceability, efficiency, accountability, compliance, and sustainability across industries and processes.”, says Elisa Swanson-Parbäck, Global Marketing Director for Sustainable Lubricants at Perstorp.  “It enables our customers to accurately track materials and make informed decisions. Further on, it showcases our commitment, long-term and short-term, to responsible practices as we can ensure our value chain partners that we apply a credible and transparent transition towards renewable raw materials.”

The launch of Valeric Acid Pro 100 and 2-EHA Pro 100 marks another significant milestone in Perstorp's quest to lead the industry's shift towards renewable and recycled raw materials.
