Christian Hübsch on RFF
With its new, 100% wood-based Renewable Functional Fillers (RFF), UPM aims to revolutionize the rubber and plastic industry. But how exactly? And what makes the new material so superior? Christian Hübsch, Director Sales & Marketing at UPM Biochemicals, explains the details.
RFF Distribution Agreement
UPM Biochemicals Sales GmbH, Leuna, and Lehmann&Voss&Co. have reached an exclusive agreement regarding the distribution of renewable functional fillers from the UPM BioMotion™ X10, X20 and X40 product range in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the United Kingdom for application in the field of elastomers.
UPM’s investment in a biorefinery marks one of Leuna’s lighthouse projects with a pioneering technology towards greener chemistry. It’s one of a few regions worldwide where sustainable forestry meets chemicals and plastics production.
How can green chemistry help to mitigate climate change?
Our Vice President UPM Biochemicals Business, Michael Duetsch, has recently been interviewed for the GRÜNES MIKRO podcast and explains how our wood-based renewable biochemicals can become a game-changer in the chemistry of tomorrow.
