Innovation and Sustainability

Collaboration between manufacturers, researchers and regulators is critical to driving sustainability and innovation in acrylic emulsions and hot melt adhesives.

Sharing best practices, developing industry standards and fostering a culture of sustainability throughout the supply chain can accelerate progress in reducing the environmental footprint and promoting sustainable practices in the industry.

Reducing environmental impact, improving product performance, and exploring renewable, bio-based alternatives, biodegradability, compostability and improving health are the main sustainability focus areas for acrylic emulsions and hot melt in Organik Kimya.

The acrylic polymer used in the production of emulsions and hot melt compounds can be derived from petroleum-based sources or renewable resources. To improve sustainability, we are exploring bio-based alternatives. The use of renewable raw materials helps to reduce or eliminate dependence on fossil fuels and reduce the carbon footprint of acrylic emulsion production. We focus on developing new products from renewable raw materials.

In Organik Kimya, process innovations related to acrylic emulsion and hot melt aim to reduce energy and water consumption and waste generation. Efficient production techniques, such as continuous polymerization processes, can help optimize resource use and minimize environmental impact. In addition, recycling and reuse of processed water and waste materials contribute to sustainability. We integrate all sustainable processes to reduce our environmental footprint and develop sustainable innovative products.

Improving the performance and durability of acrylic emulsion coatings is critical to sustainability. High-quality acrylic emulsions with excellent adhesion, weatherability, and chemical resistance can extend the life of coated surfaces and reduce the need for frequent repainting and maintenance. Innovations in formulation and additives help improve these properties, resulting in longer-lasting and more sustainable coatings.

Biodegradability and polymer sustainability are two important concepts in the field of materials science and environmental conservation. Promoting the use of biodegradable and sustainable polymers can significantly contribute to reducing plastic waste, mitigating environmental pollution, and fostering a more sustainable approach to materials and resource management.

VOCs are harmful chemicals emitted by conventional solvent-based coatings that contribute to air pollution and pose a health risk. Acrylic dispersion coatings have lower VOC levels compared to solvent-based alternatives, making them more environmentally friendly.

Our continuous innovations focus on further reducing VOC emissions, developing ultra-low or no VOC formulations, and complying with stringent environmental regulations. We use data-based assessment tools and various VOC stripping processes to achieve superior emissions reductions.

Sustainability of biocides includes minimizing their negative impact on the environment, ensuring human health and safety, and exploring alternative approaches to reduce their use or develop more environmentally friendly options. We work with external parties and our partners through legislation, certifications and industry standards that play a critical role in promoting the sustainable use and development of biocides and protecting human health and the environment.

Conducting a comprehensive life cycle assessment helps evaluate the environmental impact of our sustainable product portfolio from raw material extraction to disposal. LCA identifies areas for improvement, guides innovation efforts and provides a basis for comparing the sustainability performance of different acrylic emulsion and hot melt products or manufacturing processes.

Overall, sustainability and innovation in acrylic emulsions focus on reducing the environmental impact of production, improving product performance and shelf life, and exploring alternative raw materials. We aim these efforts at developing more sustainable coatings that meet performance requirements while minimizing the industry’s environmental footprint.
