Watch how we innovate to advance sustainability
With their renewable carbon content of up to 100%, the environmentally compatible Licocene® Terra versions of our additives make a substantial contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. Our biobased Licocare® RBW Vita range, which is made from non-food competing rice bran wax, brings an even greater renewable content to the table and offers high-performing solutions for demanding plastics, coatings and agricultural applications.
With the mass balance approach renewable based feedstock is allocated to specific end products using a third party verified certification method to ensure that input and output quantities along the value chain match. Clariant uses mass balance certification schemes, such as the REDCert2 scheme.
Three good reasons for adding sustainability -
key benefits of our wax solutions
The waxes and performance polymers from our Licocene® Terra range can help to decarbonize plastics, adhesives, and coatings and make them more recyclable
More than just biobased, our Licocare® RBW Vita waxes are made with respect for resources by coming from a by-product of rice bran oil production
With our broad range of additives, we can help plastics recyclers to solve typical challenges like improving flow and compatibilizing mixed waste

Joining forces to close the circle
Achieving the shift to a global circular plastics economy is an enormous challenge. For this reason, many companies across industries have joined hands in pursuit of this common goal. Clariant is a member and actively collaborates with others in four major associations that work for a circular plastics economy.
