In France, Arkema announced the certification of a range of bio-attributed acrylic monomers using the mass balance approach. 

Arkema noted that these monomers enable the firm to start offering certified bio-attributed specialty acrylic additives and resins for a wide range of applications.

The launch of Arkema’s new range of bio-attributed acrylic monomers and specialty acrylic additives and resins, mass-balance certified under the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification-PLUS (ISCC+) framework, is a key milestone in the transition to a more renewable and lower carbon economy, the company said.

The replacement of fossil feedstock by bio/bio-circular feedstock will support Arkema’s customers in achieving their climate plan goals by reducing their scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions, the company added.

“The development of these bio-attributed acrylic materials is an important step on the sustainable development roadmap of Arkema and its Coating Solutions segment. These innovative products deliver the same high quality and performance that our customers expect from us, while at the same time enabling them to lower their own carbon footprint,” said Herve Castres Saint Martin, Arkema’s global president of acrylic monomers.
