Viridis Chemical, a manufacturer of renewable, biobased, low-carbon chemicals, announced that its commercial scale ethyl acetate (ETAC) is a finalist for the Platts Global Energy Award in the Sustainable Chemicals Best Product category (formerly the Chemical Week Sustainability Awards).
The Best Sustainable Product award recognizes a product whose design and innovation serve a sustainable or environmental purpose and/or is made from 100% recycled/recyclable materials. It recognizes organizations that push the boundaries to create an environmentally friendly and affordable solution to an existing potentially polluting product.
“We are honored to be a finalist for this esteemed award, which we credit to the dedicated efforts of our employees and partners,” said Carl V Rush, Jr., CEO and co-founder of Viridis Chemical. “With our proprietary catalytic process, Viridis is delivering high-quality, industrial-scale ETAC to a wide range of industries. We are pushing boundaries with a 40 – 80% lower carbon footprint than the next best fossil fuel-based manufacturing technology.”
