September 24, 2019, Geleen, the Netherlands. AnQore announces the launch of Econitrile. Under this brand AnQore produces and supplies certified, sustainable acrylonitrile. With a significantly lower impact on the environment, this product constitutes an important first step towards a far more sustainable value chain. As shown below, Econitrile is made from non-fossil feedstocks. It is the first mass-produced sustainable acrylonitrile in the world, based on ISCC+ certification and mass balance calculation. Econitrile enables our customers to start producing their materials, ranging from ABS, carbon fiber, acrylamide, acrylic fiber, polyols, specialty resins and nitrile rubbers, to specialty additives and pharmaceuticals, in a far more sustainable way.
Econitrile has a 60% lower overall carbon footprint when compared with AnQore acrylonitrile, according to a Life Cycle Assessment study performed by AnQore in cooperation with Maastricht University. Due to the low footprint of our sustainable raw materials and the inherent energy generated in the production process Econitrile is a product with a much reduced impact on the environment.
