There is an urgent need to improve the sustainability of these materials’ production chains to meet the climate and environmental challenges facing our planet. In 2022, fossil-based polymers will still account for 99% of all polymers produced worldwide.
Contributing to the transition towards more environmentally-friendly production methods is one of the missions we have set ourselves through our METEX Biopolymers range.
METEX Biopolymers is our range of ingredients of natural origin dedicated to the production of polymers. Biobased and with a reduced environmental footprint compared with their fossil-based counterparts, these ingredients enable our customers to green their polymer production processes.
All our ingredients are produced by fermenting raw materials of plant origin, and all our production processes are part of an eco-design approach to reduce, reuse and recycle inputs and utilities as much as possible.
METEX PROPANEDIOL, the only 1,3-Propanediol produced in Europe for applications in the production of polyesters, polyurethanes, etc.
COMING SOON: METEX GLYCOLIC ACID, the world’s first glycolic acid of natural origin for biosourced and biodegradable polymers.
