Solvay Epicerol Earns Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials Certification

01 December 2015

Solvay subsidiary Advanced Biochemical Thailand (ABT) receives certification from the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) for the production of Epicerol, a bio-based building block for renewable chemicals and resins.

According to Solvay, the certificate covers the manufacture of bio-based epichlorohydrin (ECH), using its innovative technology, from vegetable glycerol derived from biodiesel and oleochemical production.

Solvay says, ABT is the first bio-based chemical operator in Asia to obtain RSB certification.

“We are extremely proud of this evaluation which is recognised by leading NGOs,” said Bruno VanParys, ABT Vice-President. “RSB certification validates Epicerol as the leading bio-based ECH for customers because of its outstanding environmental attributes.”

Rolf Hogan, Executive Director of RSB said, “We are very pleased that ABT has chosen RSB to demonstrate the sustainability of their ECH process. This demonstrates that RSB is the partner of choice for biomaterials operators that are interested in true sustainability.”
