*Bio-acetate is obtained by combining two main components: cellulose acetate (a polymer derived from cotton or wood pulp) and a bio-based plasticizer made from renewable sources (cereals, beet or sugar cane). The bio-based plasticizer is used in substitution for the traditional fossil-based plasticizer, increasing the overall bio-based content1 from renewable sources to 67%2. The percentage of bio-based carbon content indicates how much of the material mixture is obtained from renewable sources versus petrochemical or fossil sources.
Most important is the lower environmental impact: compared with standard acetate, bio-acetate production reduces CO2 equivalent emissions by at least 54%3.
1. Calculated using the ASTM D6866 international standard
2. Against the average bio-content of 40% of standard acetate
3. Based on Life Cycle Assessment data, according to ISO 14040/14044
