Nouryon obtains ISCC PLUS certification for green ethylene oxide, ethanolamines and ethylene amines, enabling the production of more sustainable surfactants

Nouryon announced that it is now certified to the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification standard ISCC PLUS to produce green ethylene oxide, ethanolamines, ethylene amines and the surfactants derived from these raw materials at its site in Stenungsund, Sweden. The Company is a leading global producer of ethylene amines and surfactants.

“We are pleased to serve our customers by supplying key building blocks such as green ethylene amines and ethanolamines based on sustainably sourced raw materials to contribute to lowering our customers’ product carbon footprint,” said Sirpa Engman, Vice President of Intermediates at Nouryon. “This announcement, in addition to our recent launch of green monochloroacetic acid (MCA), demonstrates our continued dedication to delivering sustainable solutions for our customers.”

Ethylene oxide, ethanolamines, and ethylene amines are key building blocks in the production of surfactants used in applications including cleaning, personal care, crop protection, oilfield, paper, and textile manufacturing. Surfactants are used to manufacture, amongst others, detergents, shampoos, and other cleaning agents applied in general cleaning applications, both in home and in industrial settings. Nouryon’s green ethylene oxide, ethanolamines, and ethylene amines are sustainable alternatives that contribute to significant product carbon footprint reduction while delivering the same high quality and performance.

“Our customers value high-performance solutions that also support their environmental targets,” said Brad Pearson, Vice President of Cleaning Goods at Nouryon. “The introduction of green ethoxylated surfactants to the household, industrial and institutional cleaning markets marks an important step in supporting our customers by providing high-quality cleaning solutions while reducing product carbon footprints.”
