Our current lifestyles generate excessive CO2 above the limits that our mother earth can withstand. As CO2 is used for photosynthesis by plants, metabolized into organic matter and consumed by Earth’s organisms, it moves in a constant cycle through soil, sea and atmosphere. The major challenge we face is the high share of fossil carbon in many consumer products. In the coatings industry, raw materials create nearly 40% of a manufacturer’s greenhouse gases. The United Nations Environment Program’s latest Emissions Gap Reports shows that GHG emissions need to be halved by the year 2030 if we are to limit global warming to 1.5 °C in the next eight years.
This means removing an additional 28 gigatons of CO2 over and above what was promised in the Paris agreement. Implementing a responsible materials program based on 100% bio-based ethoxylates can make an enormous impact on transforming that balance; surfactants and ethylene oxide derivatives offer carbon-negative solutions that set a path toward rebalancing the carbon cycle and addressing climate disruptions.
