A new category of renewable glycols

Glycols are a mainstay in chemistry. An everyday product. Proven and tested in countless end-use applications for more than 100 years. The main problem with today's glycols: they are made from fossil raw materials, mainly oil.

It's time to kiss fossil glycols good bye and innovate your brand with fully sustainable, renewable MEG and MPG made from locally sourced and invariably certified wood in Germany.

They are the only truly sustainable, radically CO₂ optimized alternative with exactly the same performance attributes and full recycleability. A premium commodity - enabling a fossil-free future for materials.
