Description

General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product is 100% biorenewable and thus aligns with "Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries" and "Use of Renewable Feedstocks". Click here for more information.
This ACS grade 1-Butanol is a drop-in replacement for traditional 1-Butanol applications. Made from 100% renewable carbon (verified through C14 ASTM D6866-16 testing) and produced in an environmentally-friendly way which reduces the carbon footprint of production and reduces reliance on fossil-fuels.
It is also free from many contaminants that are present in petroleum derived 1-Butanol, such as isobutanol and aldehydes.

Application

BioRenewable 1-Butanol is free of the many by-products of petroleum manufacturing, such as ethers and aldehydes. Additionally, it is verified as renewable through ASTM testing (ASTM Standard D6866-16), that verifies the percentage of new carbon.

Drop-in replacement for all 1-Butanol applications. Does not affect change in procedure or equipment.
