    Hygiene HySorb® biomass balanced

    HySorb® biomass balanced

    HySorb® Biomass Balanced is the first high-performance superabsorbent solution driving the use of renewable feedstock. The certified products thus contribute to sustainable development by saving fossil resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This unique solution enables customers to differentiate their diapers form competition and helps towards achieving their sustainability goals.

    From fossil-based raw materials to renewables

    The first milestone in developing HySorb® Biomass Balanced has been to identify renewable feedstock like biogas or bio-naphtha that fit to use in existing production facilities. Bio-naphtha and biogas can be derived from organic waste or vegetable oils and are used together with fossil resources already in the very first steps of chemical production. The second milestone has been achieved together with TÜV SÜD to define a standard that relates a targeted share of biomass balanced superabsorbent polymer to a required amount of renewables at the beginning of the production chain (allocation). This standard defines as well specific sustainability requirements for the renewable feedstocks.

    In doing so with HySorb® Biomass Balanced we have created a ready-to-use drop-in solution, requiring no adaptation of a diaper production line with no compromise on product quality and performance. It allows our customers to define their own sustainability targets, saving fossil resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
