Overview: Solvent use accounts for most of the carbon footprint left by the global chemical industry. Solvent choice is therefore mission critical in the context of a sustainable, carbon neutral economy. Continued use of petroleum-based solvents is increasingly unacceptable due to generation of greenhouse gases, volatile organic compounds and ozone depleting substances. By contrast, carbon neutral solvents, are made from non-edible renewable resources and do not contribute to the acceleration of the greenhouse effect or development of ozone holes. The chemical industry now has the choice to substitute petroleum-based solvents with cost efficient, carbon neutral alternatives from renewable resources.

This webinar will examine the following:
  • Aligning the chemical industry to a sustainable, carbon neutral future
  • Process Material Intensity: green performance with cost reduction
  • Applications and feasibility studies in carbon neutral solvents
Points to learn from the webinar:
  • Carbon neutral solvents are commercially available and provide cost efficient substitutes for petroleum based solvents
  • Carbon neutral solvents can improve process material intensity and reduce costs
  • MeTHF®, a carbon neutral solvent, is one of the fastest growing solvents in the pharmaceutical industry
