The aqueous phase is re-used for the duration of a production run, reducing the waste that has to be sent for chemical treatment.
Other than water, catalyst and a small amount of neutralizing agent there are no additional compounds added to the reaction.
All the chemicals used have been assessed for safety. Only one constituent is assigned a danger warning under CLP and this material is diluted to the point of no classification before use.
The toxicity and environmental impact of Citriodiol has been fully evaluated. It has a very safe profile.
We do not use any other solvents or separation agents in order to produce Citriodiol.
The temperature of the reaction is kept as low as possible. Rather than heating throughout the reaction we use short duration heating only when necessary.
The production of the raw material EC oil is fully sustainable.
No derivatization is used when producing Citriodiol.
A catalyst is used in the process in order to lower the activation energy of the reaction and improve the efficiency.
The product is rapidly biodegradable.
Avoidance of direct discharge of chemicals directly to the environment is important to us. Waste is treated and condensers are used to capture any volatile material.
Citriodiol is manufactured by well trained industry professionals following approved procedures.
