Most sustainable epichlorohydrin for CO2 reduction
Epicerol® is biobased epichlorohydrin (ECH) produced using Solvay’s proprietary process. The process is based on the use of glycerol, a renewable feedstock and a by-product of biodiesel and oleochemicals production.
Because it is a drop-in for fossil-based ECH, Epicerol® offers significant environmental advantages compared to ECH from propylene. By choosing Epicerol®, downstream users reduce the impact raw materials have on their end-products’ carbon footprint.
