Wacker Polymers Binders Based on Renewable Resources Certified.

Wacker chemical company is the world's first manufacturer capable of using renewable resources to produce commercial quantities not only of dispersions based on vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE), but also of further products based on vinyl acetate all known by the VINNAPAS brand. To do so, the company uses acetic acid generated as a byproduct in the woodworking industry. TUV SUD, the international technical inspectorate and certification body, has certified Wacker's biomass balance method as meeting its international CMS 71 standard. Independent certification assures customers that Wacker has replaced the required quantities of fossil resources with an equivalent amount of renewables for its biomass-balanced products right at the start of production. Wacker markets this innovative product class under its new VINNECO line, encompassing all its polymer products based on renewables.
