05 June 2024

Arkema, a leader in speciality materials, has reached another significant milestone in the decarbonisation of its acrylic production chain worldwide, as the company obtains ISCC Plus certification for its acrylic monomers production facility located in Clear Lake, Texas (USA), following the same certifications in Taixing, China (January 2024) and Carling, France (October 2022).

“We are committed to advancing bio-attributed initiatives, using a mass balance approach, through all steps of Arkema’s integration and at a global scale,” Casey Collins, Acrylics Monomers Regional Group President, Americas, said. “It is another key milestone towards an industry-wide decarbonisation and circularity efforts that will help our customers and end users reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coatings and adhesives for key markets like new mobility, building efficiency and living comfort; as well as in applications like engineered polymers, leather, textile, hygiene and water treatment.”

These certifications support the progressive introduction of a complete range of bio-attributed speciality resins and additives for lower VOC and lower carbon intensive technologies including high solid, waterborne, UV/LED and polyester powders.
