Replace Non-Renewable Polymers to Reach Sustainability Goals

If you’re committed to reducing your carbon footprint, EcoSynthetix can help. Our biochemicals are made from sustainably sourced, renewable feedstocks and can significantly reduce your reliance on petroleum-based polymers and binders. In fact, we’ve helped manufacturers reduce their carbon footprint by as much as 70%. From brand owner to retailer to consumer — reaching your sustainability goals will have a positive influence across your entire supply chain. Isn’t it time for a change?

Minimize or eliminate non-renewable ingredients

Start phasing out volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by making the transition to our sustainable biopolymers. Start meeting regulatory requirements such as CARB (California Air Resources Board). Stop relying on formaldehyde binders for wood composites and insulation, or SB latex binders for paper and paperboard packaging.

Reduce toxicity and streamline processes

Eliminate time-consuming procedures necessary for handling toxic chemical ingredients, such as formaldehyde, SB and SA latex, or PVOH, as well as the cost of doing so.

Create a safer work environment

Improve working conditions for your employees with bio-based ingredients. In operation, our biopolymers are non-toxic, easy-to-handle and require minimal protective equipment. Our products are also FDA and GRAS (Generally-Regarded-As-Safe) certified.

Meet industry compliance regulations

Our biopolymers are:

  • GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) compliant;
  • REACH compliant;
  • FDA 176.170 compliant;
  • FDA 176.180 compliant;
  • Non-toxic;
  • Recyclable and repulpable;
  • Compostable; and,
  • Contain no VOCs (volatile organic compounds): established analytical techniques (ASTM D-5197) used to measure VOCs in these products confirm de minimis levels of less than 50 parts per billion.

Sustainability starts with a partnership

We believe in supplying better, greener materials from extraction to delivery and are committed to helping you reduce your environmental impact. With low waste and almost zero by-products, our biopolymer manufacturing processes are up to 99% efficient and adhere to all 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. From improving product recyclability to lowering manufacturing and supply chain emissions, choosing our biopolymers will not only help your company reach its sustainability objectives, but our products can help your customers achieve their goals as well.

Committed to sustainability

  • We are committed to preserving the earth for future generations.
  • Our biopolymer and biomonomer products are industry leading examples of environmentally sustainable technology.
  • We offer an intrinsic value proposition of a reduced carbon footprint, without sacrificing performance.
  • We own Composition of Matter, Application and Process Patents for a variety of biomaterial product technologies.

Improve Fuel Economy

Our biopolymers have successfully replaced up to 50% of the synthetic polymers used in automotive manufacturing of fiber mattes, helping clients increase product recyclability to meet the European Commission’s mandate that new vehicles must be made of 95% recyclable materials. Our bio-based binders have also been proven to reduce overall vehicle weight, helping manufacturers improve overall vehicle fuel economy.

Reduce your carbon footprint in paper industry applications

  • Our biopolymer manufacturing processes consume significantly less energy compared to those for styrene butadiene and other latex binders.
    Reducing your carbon footprint by up to 67% will add value for the brand owner, retailer and end-user.

Decrease formaldehyde use in building product applications

  • Using renewable binders to fully replace formaldehyde in the production of commercial mineral and fiberglass wall insulation enables companies to ensure their end-product has no-added-formaldehyde (NAF).

Improve biodegradability in non-woven applications

  • Manufacturers have achieved improved biodegradability by incorporating our biopolymers as a co-binder component in their wipe formulations.
