Solving the d-limonene squeeze: The Digest’s 2016 Multi-Slide Guide to Elevance

April 19, 2016 |

Last year, Elevance Renewable Sciences introduced Elevance Clean 1200, what it describes as “a superior-performing degreasing and VOC-exempt solvent that outperforms traditional and bio-based solvents for industrial degreasing applications targeted toward heavy manufacturing, transportation maintenance and repair operations (MRO), and industrial food processing.”

For some time, the EPA has been getting stricter with its list of toxins, just as companies had stepped up on environmental awareness and interest in sustainable solutions. D-limonene is particularly challenged to meet the new environmental standards — and aromatics had challenges as well. Some of the regs that Elevance Clean 1200 meets are:

• VOC exempt (40 CFR 59.203 – Standards for consumer products)
• TSCA listed and REACh registered
• California AQMD LVP-VOC
• Readily biodegradable (by OECD method)
• Non-flammable

Here’s a recent slide deck from Elevance on Solving the D-Limonene Squeeze.
