The Munich-based Wacker chemical company has bagged certification for using renewable resources to produce commercial quantities not only of dispersions based on vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE), but also of further products based on vinyl acetate – all known by the Vinnapas brand. For this, the company uses acetic acid generated as a byproduct.

Tuv Sud, the international technical inspectorate and certification body, has certified Wacker’s biomass balance method as meeting its international CMS 71 standard. Independent certification will assure customers that Wacker has replaced the required quantities of fossil resources with an equivalent amount of renewables for its biomass-balanced products right at the start of production. Wacker markets this innovative product class under its new Vinneco line, encompassing all its polymer products based on renewables.

"More and more customers in construction, paints, adhesives, textiles and the paper industry value the use of renewable raw materials," said Dr Christoph Riemer, head of the consumer & industrial polymers business unit at Wacker Polymers. "We can now meet that wish with our vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymers. After all, our approach to sustainability begins right at the raw-material stage."

"We can now offer customers of VAE dispersions something comparable to the green electricity that consumers get from utilities," said Dr Markus Busold, strategic marketing director at consumer & industrial polymers. "When customers order binders based on renewables, Wacker ensures that the required amount of bio-acetic acid has entered the production loop. And that kind of acetic acid comes solely from certified producers." (RR)
