Turning the World's Products Green: 100% Renewable, 100% Bio-Based ECO Range of Surfactants
In 2015, Croda began construction on a $170 million capital investment at its Atlas Point manufacturing site in New Castle, DE to build a bio-ethylene oxide plant, using licensed technology from Scientific Design Company, Inc. This plant is the first bio-ethylene oxide plant constructed in the US for the manufacture of 100% renewable, 100% bio-based surfactants.
The new 100% bio-based ECO Range is the widest range of 100% renewable surfactants on the market. By using an alternate route to EO with bioethanol from biomass sources, it significantly increases the bio-based content of ethoxylated products and reduces reliance on fossil fuels. Moreover, the ingredients are manufactured with renewable energy.
*Calculated using USDA BioPreferred Method for determining bio-based content which is to be validated by carbon 14 testing (ASTM D6866)/ ** Products containing palm oil derivatives are RSPO Supply Chain Certified via Mass Balance / USDA BioPreferred® is a registered trademark of the US Department of Agriculture
