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.
The 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.
(1)Calculated using USDA BioPreferred Method for determining bio-based content and validated, or being validated, by carbon 14 testing (ASTM D6886) (2) USDA BioPreferred is a registered trademark of the U.S Department of Agriculture (3) Products containing palm oil derivatives are RSPO Supply Chain Certified via Mass Balance
