Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, has signed an agreement for a new partnership with Neste, the world’s leading provider of sustainable renewable diesel and an expert in delivering drop-in renewable chemical solutions. By using Neste’s renewable hydrocarbons in its product development, Clariant increases the number of products in its portfolio that are derived from renewable raw materials. As a result, sustainable solutions become more accessible to a variety of industries, including adhesives, plastics and coatings.
Christian Kohlpaintner, member of Clariant’s executive committee, comments: “Sustainability is one of Clariant’s five strategic pillars. 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.”
Peter Vanacker, president & CEO, Neste, comments: “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.”
