INEOS and UPM Biofuels sign long-term agreement for RSB-certificed renewable raw material supply

February 11, 2020 |

In Germany, INEOS and UPM Biofuels have announced a long-term agreement to supply a renewable raw material for new and innovative bio-attributed polymers to be produced at INEOS Köln, Germany.

INEOS will use UPM BioVerno, a sustainable raw material from a renewable residue of wood pulp processing, to produce bio-attributed polyolefins.

These new sustainable materials will be used in a wide range of products from plastic food packaging to medical and pipes. Applications also include BIOVYNTM, the world’s first commercially available bio-attributed PVC, produced by INOVYN an INEOS Business.

The agreement supports INEOS plans to make plastic from renewable raw materials, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting a more circular approach to INEOS Olefins & Polymers production.

The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) has certified each step in the process, starting from UPM Biofuels converting the wood-based residue (crude tall oil) into hydrocarbons, through to the final polymer
