At Croda, we understand the importance of sustainable manufacturing practices. We are constantly looking for ways to minimise the negative impacts on the environment while conserving energy and natural resources. Our objective is to make sustainability a point of difference for our business, and we are confident that this strategy will generate even greater benefits for the environment in which we operate, the people that we work with and the communities we are part of.
Turning the world's products green:
Focus on environmental and social impacts:
- reduced reliance on petrochemicals: The plant uses 100% renewable bioethanol derived from natural feedstocks;
lower carbon footprint: Not only does the use of bioethanol from different natural feedstocks help to lower our carbon footprint, but since the EO is made at our Atlas Point
- facility, the need for transportation of EO materials is eliminated; and
- being a supportive corporate citizen and active member of the community: The expansion of the Atlas Point facility has brought over 250 construction jobs to Delaware and many full-time employees from the region to the workforce at Atlas Point.
Located at our Atlas Point manufacturing site in New Castle, DE, Croda’s bio-ethylene oxide plant, using licensed technology from Scientific Design Company, Inc, is the first bio-ethylene oxide plant constructed in the US for the manufacture of 100% renewable, 100% bio-based surfactants.
