Since the concept of sustainability was first introduced in the coatings industry decades ago, the focus has expanded well beyond reducing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to include energy and resource conservation, waste minimization, process efficiency enhancement, use of renewable materials, and more. As a leading global biochemical company, Corbion delivers innovative solutions that enable manufacturers in diverse industrial segments to create high-performance products with better sustainability profiles. This presentation examines the role Corbion’s advanced fermentation-based technologies can play in formulating coatings with high levels of renewable content.

Three specific product groups in the Corbion portfolio will be highlighted for their value and relevance in developing biobased coatings, each leveraging the benefits of lactic acid chemistry:

• Lactate esters: Biobased solvents providing an effective alternative to fossil-based materials
• Lactides: Versatile, biobased monomers/building blocks for synthesizing polyurethanes, alkyds and acrylate resins
• Novel lactic acid-based preservatives for water-based systems (pH<8)
