Henkel TECHNOMELT Supra 081 ECO hotmelt

Henkel has launched one of the Technomelt Supra ECO range products into the Australia and New Zealand market. As the name suggests, TECHNOMELT Supra 081 ECO is made of 81% bio-based material using a mass balanced approach, while delivering Technomelt Supra and Food Safety Performance, with technical properties similar to TECHNOMELT Supra 100.

The adhesive range provides a full traceability of the CO2 footprint and the sustainable sourcing of raw materials, thanks to a mass balance approach certified under ISCC PLUS. Mass Balance Transfer refers to the tracking of material in flow and out flow of a closed production system, ensuring a certain amount of bio-based material entering and leaving the process.

It is designed to help companies move to a negative footprint. At an average consumption of 100 tons per year, the carbon footprint of a standard polyolefin hotmelt adhesive amounts to 328 tons of CO2 per year. This equals 164 tons of burned coal or 71 passenger cars driven for a full year. At the same rate of consumption, TECHNOMELT Supra 081 ECO will result in a carbon negative footprint of -44 tons of CO2/pa. This saving of 372 tons of CO2 per year equals the carbon sequestered by more than 6100 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.1
