We develop bio-based chemistries for the Coatings Industry. Ecoat’s strategy is based on a patented technology and has 2 pillars:
- Build a worldwide franchise on innovative bio-based alkyd emulsion
- Build industry partnerships for the deployement of the patented technology outside the alkyd emulsion market.
We care about our environment, making responsible business to leave a smaller footprint
We work hard to create products for paint and coatings that are the best they can be in every way. Products, that are innovating, easy to use, and highly performing. And the same passion for innovation goes into how we think about environmental responsibility.
We know CO2 ranks among the most important greenhouse gases that influence the way the climate is changing. It's a real problem. As an architectural coating producer, we know we use energy and material, which in turn generates greenhouse gas emissions. That's part of the problem we can help solve, by finding less energy consuming production process, using bio-based raw materials for waterborne coatings for instance.
In 2012, we evaluated the greenhouse gas emissions caused by our business activities, to have an overview of where and how we can adopt suitable measures. For more information, please have a look at the Ecoat C02 Footprint resume.
We are proud of the products we develop and the way we make them. But we know we can still do better... we work on that everyday... we strive to leave a cleaner planet for the next generation ... the sooner, the better...
