DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Demand for materials with renewable content and lower environmental impact is growing across customer segments. Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global chemical and specialty materials company, today launched a sustainable polyacetal (POM) product offering known as POM ECO-B to support the growing demand.

POM ECO-B allows customers to realize reduction in carbon dioxide emission in their end-use products and advance toward their renewable content goals. Celanese believes that this offering has a strong value proposition for customers in the automotive, consumer products and medical device industries where footprint reduction or renewable content is important.

Celanese’s POM ECO-B contains up to 97% bio-content via a mass-balance approach as certified by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC+). It reduces carbon dioxide footprint per kilogram of POM polymer by more than half without any impact on properties or need for requalification.
