Sustainable lab products, solutions & services for responsible science
Sustainable chemistry is essential – not only for our company but also for our customers. We offer many solutions to practice sustainable science throughout the value chain, ranging from greener laboratory chemicals and greener synthesis methods to packaging and waste reduction, which minimize environmental impact, improve lab safety and reduce costs.
What is our contribution to green chemistry? Request our interactive Sustainability Handbook for an overview of our goals, product and packaging development process, and greener alternatives & solutions.
Our greener alternative products can be easily recognized with this icon. This means they fulfill one or more of the following criteria:
Stock your green chemistry toolbox with our exceptional portfolio of bio-based solvents and greener chemicals with USDA BioPreferred® certification.
Our portfolio of greener solvent alternatives includes plant-based solvents, such as bio-ethanol, produced from grain or sugar cane, ethyl lactate, made by sugar fermentation, bio-based glycerol, produced from rapeseed, and Methyl THF, made from corncobs and sugarcane bagasse. Our innovative Cyrene™ solvent and Cyrene™ Blends are made from renewable resources and are additionally safer alternatives to NMP, DMF, and other harmful solvents.
Explore our wide range of biorenewable solvents and sustainable packaging solutions:
From greener battery materials to greener manufacturing materials, our products support researchers and manufacturers in developing better technologies for more sustainable energy generation and storage:
Less hazardous chemical synthesis can be achieved with green chemistry reaction methods, such as electrochemistry and micellar catalysis, to increase reaction efficiency with less harmful waste. Our Earth-abundant iron-based catalysts and biodegradable reagents enable greener synthesis of chemical compounds and materials. In addition, retrosynthetic planning with SYNTHIA™ ensures atom economy and reduces chemical waste, time and costs.
Our biosurfactants ECO Tween™ and ECO Brij™ have all of the performance benefits of tradtional petroleum-based products, but are made using bio-based ethylene oxide (EO) from biomass ethanol, making them completely renewable. TERGITOL™ 15-S and ECOSURF™ detergents are biodegradable surfactants that combine uncompromising performance with sustainability.
Use the DOZN™ Tool to determine how to evaluate the relative greenness of synthetic routes and chemical processes to better integrate sustainable practices in the lab.
