Butyl glycol replacement? Now it's possible! We would like to highlight and updating ruling and labeling perspectives of a very widespread solvent, butyl glycol (CAS 111-76-2). This solvent, with an estimated EU consumption of several hundred thousand MT per...
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™.
What are the biomasses and how they impact our lives ? The use of agricultural products for industrial processing (for example, bio-diesel ) are a threat to the global food requirements ? In this article I’ll tell you what are the biomasses and their countless uses.
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.
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.
How many products have changed in our present activities, in comparison with those used by our grand-parents? Let think about how many of them have been recognized as dangerous or even carcinogenic is it the same for solvents ? Let discover it in this article.
D-limonene ( CAS 138-86-3 ) is a well-known ingredient, not only in cosmetics field but also in industrial and household cleaners, having a very strong degreasing power.
On the basis of our expertise on bio-based solvents, we have developed and we are distributing ourAstroBio™ K 1 as an efficient replacement of acetone for many applications.
Our product doesn’t contain ketones, but, as all our products, is largely based on molecules coming from the fermentation of carbohydrates contained in vegetal kingdom.
For many public contracts, growing attention is placed from authorities on the use of less hazardous cleaning systems or solvents in comparison with commodities ones. As an example, in Italy, national law is in force that is assuring better classification values to...
At present no national laws of general enforcing value are forbidding usage of petrochemical solvents, even if toxic. For example, in no country, a national law is totally forbidding usage of toluene.
But some important restrictions to the use of several petrochemicals solvents are growing more and more in some remarkable manufacturing markets.
