In 2015, Croda began construction on a $170 million capital investment at its Atlas Point manufacturing site in New Castle, DE to build a bio-ethylene oxide plant, using licensed technology from Scientific Design Company, Inc. Launched in October 2017, this plant is the first bio-ethylene oxide plant constructed in the US for the US manufacture of 100% renewable, 100% bio-based surfactants.
The new 100% bio-based ECO Range is the widest range of 100% renewable surfactants on the market. By using an alternate route to EO with bioethanol from biomass sources, it significantly increases the bio-based content of ethoxylated products and reduces reliance on fossil fuels. Moreover, the ingredients are manufactured with renewable energy.The ECO Range caters to the tremendous consumer need for greener products. Now, with the 100% renewable, 100% bio-based ECO Range, customers won’t have to choose between meeting their sustainability goals and delivering high performance products to consumers.
*Calculated using USDA BioPreferred Method for determining bio-based content which is to be validated by carbon 14 testing (ASTM D6866) / **Products containing palm oil derivatives are RSPO Supply Chain Certified via Mass Balance
