Redefining sustainable manufacturing …. The beauty is in the process
Eastman GEM™ technology is raising the bar for sustainably manufactured cosmetics ingredients. Guided by the U.S. - EPA’s Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry, GEM™ technology uses enzymes and closely controlled manufacturing conditions to eliminate high temperatures, strong acids, and unwanted by-products; consuming less energy compared to conventional manufacturing processes. The beauty is in the process.
|Sustainable advantages of GEM™ technology vs. conventional processes:|
|• 52% reduction in CO2 emissions
• 59% reduction in energy consumption
• 93% waste reduction
|• 100% reduction in process water usage|
• E factor of 0.06
Eastman GEM™ technology (formerly known as the Eastman green biocatalytic process) can also utilize
its sustainably advantaged manufacturing technique for a wide range of additional esters.
