Westlake’s European Subsidiary, Vinnolit, to offer caustic soda with reduced CO2 footprint

Vinnolit, a Westlake company, will launch climate-friendly "green” caustic soda in 2021. This product will enable customers to reduce their own carbon footprint and in turn develop more climate-friendly products.

Ismaning / Gendorf / Knapsack – Caustic soda is an important base chemical, of which more than nine million tons are needed per year in Europe alone. From 2021, the PVC and caustic soda manufacturer Vinnolit will offer certified climate-friendly caustic soda utilizing renewable energy Guarantees of Origin (GOs). The CO2 footprint of this low-carbon caustic soda from the Gendorf and Knapsack (Hürth) sites - which is introduced to the market under the brand name GreenVin - is reduced by more than 30% compared to conventional Vinnolit caustic soda. The CO2 footprint taken as a basis was calculated by sustainable AG in accordance with the ISO 14067 standard. Review and certification are carried out by TÜV Rheinland.
