Clariant recently announced it has signed an agreement for a new partnership with Neste, a provider of sustainable renewable diesel and renewable chemicals. By using Neste’s renewable hydrocarbons in its product development, Clariant reportedly increases the number of products in its portfolio that are derived from renewable raw materials.
“Sustainability is one of Clariant’s five strategic pillars,” said Christian Kohlpaintner, member of Clariant’s executive committee. “This new partnership with Neste is a significant milestone in providing a sustainable future for Clariant and its customers. It is an exemplary cooperation because it provides a competitive advantage for our customers while making a sustainable impact across the value chain.”
Through the partnership, Clariant can offer sustainable polyolefin solutions derived from renewable hydrocarbons.
“Combining Clariant’s in-depth knowhow in the varying applications of adhesives, plastics and coatings, and Neste’s extensive knowledge and experience in working with bio-based materials to produce a variety of drop-in renewable solutions, enables both companies to develop their sustainable material offering to provide maximum added value not only to sustainable brands in varying industries, but also to their customers,” said Peter Vanacker, president and CEO, Neste.
