We are thrilled to share that OQEMA can now offer THF from a biobased source. OQEMA has a long term established business relationship in DACH with our THF supply partner Novamont S.p.A. Beside the established S- and P- grades, as well as the low water and non-stabilized grades, we can now offer S- and P-grades from a biobased BDO.
🌱 Biobased BDO is generated via fermentation of starch used as starting material for biobased polyester to convert this into biodegradable plastics.
🌱 During this BDO conversion THF-Bio is formed as a side stream.
🌱 The THF-Bio offers a biobased content of min. 95% according to EN 16640:2017
