Econitrile is produced at the AnQore plant located on the Chemelot Industrial site in Geleen, the Netherlands. We make use of our existing plant, people and processes. Therefore, the product properties will not deviate at all from the high-quality acrylonitrile that AnQore has been producing and supplying for decades. The sustainable nature of Econitrile stems from the fact that our innovative suppliers provide us with the key feedstocks propylene and ammonia from sustainable sources. Like AnQore, both our suppliers, SABIC and OCI-Nitrogen, are ISCC+ certified. They guarantee the sustainable nature of these chemicals by co-feeding sustainable feedstocks, like bio-naphtha and bio- gas, to their plants and assigning these to ammonia and propylene on a mass balance basis, in accordance with the ISCC+ guidelines.
Pieter Boon, CEO of AnQore, states: "We are proud to be the first acrylonitrile producer to offer sustainable acrylonitrile under our Econitrile brand. Although for the time being there is limited availability of sustainable feedstocks, we are providing our customers the possibility to start the journey to a far more sustainable chemical industry, enhancing their product portfolio and simultaneously lower their environmental impact."
