This mass balance approach traces the flow of sustainable raw materials used to manufacture PG
Dow launched a new range of propylene glycol (PG) solutions featuring alternative – lower carbon, bio-based and circular – feedstocks in Europe. Customers can now deliver end-products to a broad range of industries, such as pharmaceutical, agricultural, and food, with third-party validated sustainability benefits due to a mass balance approach.
This mass balance approach traces the flow of sustainable raw materials used to manufacture PG through a complex value chain and attributes it based on verifiable bookkeeping; an approach that has received ISCC PLUS certification.
"We recognize demand has increased for the use of renewable materials to reduce carbon and enable circularity. By applying our low carbon, bio-based, and advanced recycling technologies, we are making this a reality for PG. Our customers will benefit from the same high-quality performance with a more sustainable material,” said Andrew Jones, global business director, Dow CAV & POPG.
Dow continues to implement the use of alternative feedstocks using the mass balance approach. Independent, external verification is a key part of the chain of custody method, which lies at the heart of this approach. Through verifiable bookkeeping and without changing the production process, it is possible to trace and attribute the flow of sustainable materials through complex value chains.
ISCC is a world leading international certification standard for fully traceable and environmentally, socially and economically sustainable supply chains. Within Europe, the propylene glycol plant in Stade, Germany, has achieved this highly regarded third-party qualification.
This latest development is part of Dow’s accelerated 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.
