Roquette resuming production of sorbitol-based clarifiers for polymers

New unit "Performance Plastics” to strengthen link to polymer industry

  • - Roquette, leader in plant-based derivatives, has restarted its production unit for DISORBENE® sorbitol-based clarifiers in Lestrem, France.

  • Roquette is launching DISORBENE® 3, a third generation sorbitol-based clarifier.
  • With DISORBENE® clarifiers, Roquette is expanding its offering for the polymer industry.

Roquette has a wide experience in producing sorbitol-based clarifiers using an efficient and environmentally sustainable production process. By offering DISORBENE® 3, Roquette opens a new reputable source for bis-DMBS, a state-of-the-art clarifier developed and sold by Milliken under the registered trade name Millad® 3988, and provides additional capacity for this widely used clarifier to meet the growing needs of the polymer industry.

“Roquette has proven to be a very good partner to the polymer industry for the first and second generation sorbitol-based clarifiers in the past” points out Industry expert Dr. Felix Meyer, “and DISORBENE® 3 has the same quality standards and the advantageous granulometry of the Industry reference”.

“Polypropylene producers in Europe are welcoming Roquette decision to re-enter the clarifier business as they were depending on one non-European supplier in the past” commented Mr. Thierry Laurent, head of Roquette Plant-based solutions department. “Roquette has recently created a new unit “Performance Plastics” to strengthen its link to the polymer industry”.

Next to DISORBENE®, Roquette is offering the following plant-based solutions for the polymer industry:

  • GAIALENE® – plant-based resins
  • POLYSORB® (isosorbide)
  • Reverdia Biosuccinium
  • POLYSORB® ID – phthalate-free plasticizer.
