Pentiol Green + (1,2-Pentanediol from furfural)

1,2-pentanediol is a key ingredient for the cosmetic industry and an intermediate for agricultural applications and other specialty markets. Additional production facilities will come on stream in the fourth quarter of 2014 at the Memphis site of Pennakem, LLC.

DalinYebo‘s insight:

1,2-Pentanediol (Eco certified pentylene glycol) is synthesised from furfural via furfuryl alcohol. Biobased 1,2-Penanediol helps the cosmetics industry to offer its consumers products that are made environmental friendly (and in this case: made from corncobs or sugarcane bagasse).
