Lanxess expands biobased EPDM offerings

It has been almost two years since the blog last visited Lanxess' activities on its biobased EPDM (ethylene propylene-diene) monomer when the company launched its first product in 2011 under the brand Keltan Eco. The biobased EPDM uses Braskem's sugarcane-based ethylene supplied via pipeline to Lanxess' EPDM plant in Triunfo, Brazil. Lanxess claimed to be the first producer of biobased EPDM worldwide.

Last week, Lanxess said it will be adding five new grades of Keltan Eco before the end of 2013.

The bio-EPDM can be used in the manufacture of solid and foamed automotive glazing seals
