Pioneering Biosolvents since 2006

 

 

A COMPLETE PRODUCT LIST OF BREAKTHROUGH BIO-BASED SOLVENTS TO REPLACE THE PETROCHEMICAL ONES

Making an Impact Across the Globe

ASTROBIO™ is the leading Italian industry in developing bio-based solvents.

Since 2006 we are Pioneering Biosolvents and using our know how to improve industrial process adding new sustainability.

Our vision is to completely replace all traditional petrochemical solvents with a green based one.

Thanks to our experienced research and development team we can design tailor-made biosolvents for every industrial process.

BioSolvents are dedicated to providing bio-based, renewable sourced alternatives to petroleum-based solvents.

A business genuinely dedicated to Green Chemistry solutions to technical problems.

Our biosolvents are proprietary blends based primarily on bio-sourced ingredients: derivatives of lactic acid and further natural acids, vegetable methyl esters and bioethanol. Some fully biodegradable organic co-solvents are used to assure to our formulations desired applicative performances.

Truly Natural Commited

Biobased solvents are derived from agricultural crops rich in carbohydrates, such as corn, wheat and beets.

100% Natural Acids

Esters of lactic acids and further natural acids are used,  as well as bioethanol and further alcohols made from fermentation and purification of carbohydrates.

GMO Free Sources

Our present European production of biosolvents uses just GMO-free sources.

WHY CHOOSE A BIO BASED SOLVENT?

AstroBio™ biosolvents are more expensive than related petrochemical solvents, with some exciting exceptions.

Therefore, AstroBio™ cannot be compared to commodity solvents just on their price basis ( €/kg )

TECHNICAL and SAFETY advantages of AstroBio™ must be highlighted and emphasized, in order to balance and even overcome prices differences:

"Just Irritant"

All AstroBio™ are labelled ( GHS )

just as IRRITANT, while all their related commodities solvents are

HARMFUL or even TOXIC.

Solvency Power

AstroBio™ has been found better than correspondent petrochemical solvents = higher COMPATIBILITY with other formulation ingredients = more extended STABILITY versus ageing and temperature.

More efficiency

AstroBio™ in reducing final formulations VISCOSITY against petrol-solvents = you can use LESS Astrobio™ to get the same viscosity. 

Environmental Friendly

AstroBio™ grant you much lower waste or water  TREATMENT COSTS 

Better Flowdown

All AstroBio™ used in formulations help to avoid some common drawbacks as:

  • Craters
  • Fisheyes
  • orange peels

WHAT DOES CARBON NEUTRAL MEAN?

  • Carbon of biosolvents comes from photosynthesis, where CO2 is removed from the atmosphere by plants to make sugars, starches, oils and proteins.  
  • Sugars and starches are converted into esters of lactic acid and further natural acids, bioethanol and other solvents, for example, some vegetable oils are converted into methyl esters.
  • Carbon is removed from the atmosphere by photosynthesis, stored in plants, then released as CO2 when a biosolvent is used.
  • For EVERY gram of CO2 released in the atmosphere by using a biosolvent, there was ONE gram of C02 removed from the atmosphere by photosynthesis.

This overall balance is named CARBON NEUTRAL.

The Power of Biosolvents: Live From Eurocoat 2016

Our mission at Eurocoat 2016 was to provide to the industry, mainly to the coatings one, some bio-based alternatives to petrochemicals solvents. It’s well known that now many raw materials are available from fermentation of carbohydrates, then from vegetables, rather than from petroleum. On these new generation raw materials we have developed, and we are still developing, our range of biosolvents Astrobio™.

How Can You Find If A Product Is Renewable And Sustainable?

More and more often we hear of renewability and sustainability. These two concepts go hand in hand with the development of new technologies especially related to new sources of energy. When we talk about a product, how can we find out if it really is renewable and sustainable? As usual, the answer is not simple. In this article I will try to tell you why.

What is Green Chemistry?

When we hear about green chemistry a real debate opens that generates a lot of confusion. It happens for several reasons, the first one is that the “green” adjective is increasingly fashionable and inflated, the second one is that many times a confusion is generated being “green” a synonym for “not dangerous” “ecological “” natural “. In this article I’ll explain how to distinguish green chemistry from the traditional one.
