Perstorp launches world’s first portfolio of renewable polyols: In response to the fast-growing global need for more sustainable coatings, resins and synthetic lubricants, Perstorp has developed a portfolio of renewable alternatives to the essential polyols Pentaerythritol (Penta), Trimethylolpropane (TMP), and Neopentyl glycol (Neo). Two new polyols – Evyron and Neeture – complete the company’s portfolio of the three essential polyols in renewable options. The new portfolio is based on a mass balance concept. Moreover, the new polyols are all ISCC certified, ensuring, among other things, full traceability of the bio-based raw material back to its country of origin. Currently Perstorp is devoting 80% of its R&D resources to finding new sustainable solutions and in addition, all Perstorp Swedish plants will switch to using only renewable electricity in 2018.
