Cutting-Edge Bio-Renewable Resins: Meeting Market Demands through Sustainable Alkyd Technology

This presentation details the technology that is currently available and in demand in Europe, for 100% bio renewable resins. Information is supplied by Synthopol -The Resin Company. Located in Germany, they are key players in the on- going development of resins that meet the regulatory and modern market demands that are so often initiated in Europe.

This paper uses an example of a commercially available alkyd that is 100 % biorenewable, including the solvent. It describes the materials and compares it to other partly biorenewable technologies.
