Evonik Launches Sustainable Polyesters for the Adhesives Industry Evonik launches DYNACOLL® eCO, a sustainable polyester range for the adhesives industry. With the launch, Evonik is contributing to the transition from fossil to renewable resources, for which its coating & adhesive resins business line is pursuing the mass balance approach.

The new line of polyesters enables cost-effective and rapid change of production on a large scale, helping to meet Evonik’s environmental and sustainability targets.

Meet Demand for Sustainable Products

With the new product range, Evonik is addressing the increasing market demand for sustainable products.

"Our customers are looking for quick and easy solutions for defossilization and decarbonization. Our DYNACOLL® eCO products enable our customers to reach their targets and strengthen the circular economy," explained Thorsten Marin, vice president of polyesters & polyolefins. "With this product launch, we are expanding our sustainable product portfolio while contributing to Evonik’s sustainability goals."

DYNACOLL® eCO features identical physical and chemical properties as compared with the traditional DYNACOLL® product portfolio. "Our customers do not have to carry out any additional evaluation, nor do they have to adjust their formulations. Customers who buy mass-balanced products can use them in the traditional way and benefit from the same quality," said Dr. Zuhal Tuncay, global senior marketing manager for polyesters.

Certified By ISCC Organization

Since December 2022, the DYNACOLL® production facilities in Marl and Witten have been certified by the ISCC organization to operate under the ISCC PLUS certification scheme based on the mass balance approach. This certification ensures full traceability of the sustainable materials used in Evonik’s production plants and confirms that the raw materials used originate from sustainable sources. In addition to strict sustainability principles, high ecological standards and social responsibility are also guaranteed.

DYNACOLL® products are well-established polyester polyols and copolyesters for hot-melt adhesives used, for example, in woodworking, automotive, and textile applications. The brand has been well-recognized for its high quality for decades.
