INEOS Styrolution (Frankfurt am Main, Germany, the global leader in styrenics, today announces the introduction of their U.S. domestically produced NAS ECO grade of sustainable polymers.
The new grade contains bio-attributed renewable materials and is now available in the Americas.
The addition of NAS ECO into the company’s ECO product portfolio, provides their customers with a growing selection of drop-in solutions for domestically produced, bio-attributed styrenic polymers without costly process changes (domestically produced SBC products were introduced earlier this year).
Produced at INEOS Styrolution’s site in Decatur, Alabama, NAS ECO is based on the mass balance ISCC PLUS certified approach. NAS ECO 21, NAS ECO 30, and NAS ECO 90 will carry a “BB70” designation which indicates the percentage of biobased content to be 70 %, and NAS ECO XC will become available with a 50 % biobased content.
INEOS Styrolution Vice President Sales Management, Americas, Ricardo Cuetos, says, “We are pleased to offer our customers, U.S. produced, bio-attributed products. Our ECO materials provide customers with a seamless approach for integrating sustainable styrenic solutions into their current manufacturing processes”.
NAS ECO materials have identical properties and the same high-quality and performance as their fossil-based NAS counterparts. Thus, enabling a direct replacement for customers seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve sustainable product goals. AT
