Valeric Acid Pro is our renewable counterpart to Valeric Acid. Based on a traceable mass balance concept, it is designed to reduce the carbon footprint throughout the value chain and to support sustainable sourcing of renewable and recycled raw materials.
Valeric Acid Pro comes in grades of 20% and 100% renewable carbon content and carries the ISCC PLUS certification. This ensures that all raw materials used are sourced responsibly and sustainably from cradle to gate. The certification includes a calculation of mass balance and product carbon footprint.
