Bio-based Polymers Improve Economics
Regardless of the product you are manufacturing, keeping your operating costs down is the name of the game. The idea of making your product more environmentally friendly typically means higher costs for manufacturers and ultimately a higher price for the consumer – or at least, that’s what we’ve always thought. However, this is no longer the case. EcoSynthetix offers environmentally sustainable binder solutions that perform as well – or better – compared to current binder systems – with a lower total system cost.
Many traditional industrial chemicals are derived from petroleum, making them vulnerable to fossil fuel price instability. For you, this can create budgetary constraints, increased uncertainty and supply chain challenges. While petroleum-based ingredients are reliant on finite resources, our renewable biochemicals can provide price stability in your operations. Replacing your synthetic polymers, our bio-based ingredients can help stabilize your overall supply chain costs and decrease your unit cost of production.
Our biopolymers exhibit unique properties that enable manufacturers to reduce or eliminate their reliance on other additives, helping you to simplify your supply chain and save money. Wood composite manufacturers can use less release agent by using DuraBind. Paper manufacturers can reduce the amount of non-renewable binders, thickeners and water retention agents in their formulations by using EcoSphere. Second change:
EcoSynthetix products are often shipped in powder form, providing a significant cost reduction over transporting traditional fossil fuel-based binders, which typically ship in liquid form. As a result, they offer longer shelf life and can be stored for months at ambient temperature.
There are real costs associated with the use of binders made from highly regulated chemicals. By switching to bio-based products, you can reduce regulatory supervision for handling compliance, as well as the reporting requirements that are customary when using highly regulated chemicals. What’s more, you can decrease emissions monitoring and concerns over QA testing results.
