Case Study


using renewable feedstock

Styrolux ECO is the world’s first specialty styrenics material made using renewable feedstock. It uses fewer fossil resources and reduces GHG footprint by at least 74% when compared to styrenic polymers produced using fossil fuel. All renewable feedstock sources are certified under ISCC PLUS.

customer challenge

Our customers are looking for products made with renewable materials and with a reduced carbon footprint. The grades need to match the performance and have the same property profile as conventional materials. In addition, retaining already optimised and highly efficient infrastructure and processes is necessary.

Our solution

Bio-attributed styrenics are made by mixing renewable and fossil feedstock during production. Our renewable feedstock is sourced from local household kitchen waste as well as Scandinavian wood waste. Styrolux ECO grades are available in two versions: the BC60, where 100% of the fossil-based styrene is replaced by bio-attributed styrene and the BC30, where 50% of the fossil-based styrene is replaced by bio-attributed styrene.
