Mass balance: Accounting for Raw Materials
VESTOPLAST® is mainly used as a raw material for hot melt adhesives. With VESTOPLAST® eCO, a mix of bio-based and fossil-based resources are used. The move to reduce reliance on fossil-based resources is part of Evonik’s focus on sustainability. Resources need to be better used and changes must be made to tackle climate change.
