FROM CASTOR BEAN TO ADVANCED BIO-MATERIALS

A SUPER SUSTAINABLE FEEDSTOCK

Oleris® advanced bio-materials are made from oil pressed from castor beans. Castor is uniquely non-competitive with food in contrast with many other bio-sources. As a founding member of the Pragati Initiative for sustainable castor farming, Arkema empowers farmers and their communities to increase their income while practicing agriculture consistent with efficient utilization of water and land resources, improved waste management, and a high standard of human rights protections. Our commitment to responsible agriculture is realized by our continued contribution to sustinable farming through the Pragati partnership.

A POSITIVE CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT

Oleris® advanced bio-materials are Carbon Neutral (ISO 14040). Cradle to gate climate change impact is climate positive with no need for carbon compensation: The biogenic (atmospheric) CO2 absorbed during the growth of the bean is more than the cumulative CO2 emission equivalents associated with the entire manufacturing process.

The use of each kilogram (kg) of Oleris® advanced bio-materials instead of a petrochemical alternative typically represents a CO2 impact savings of more than 2 kilogram (kg) equivalent.
