ASK Chemicals, a prominent player in the chemical solutions sector for the foundry industry, has made significant strides in sustainability. Through an innovative approach of using production side streams as a raw material source, the company has notably reduced waste and resource consumption. This effort aligns with their goal of fostering a circular economy within their operations.

ASK Chemicals is committed to minimizing its environmental impact, with a keen focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

By prioritizing the development of efficient products and sourcing environmentally friendly materials, ASK Chemicals sets a high standard in the industry for environmental stewardship.

The company’s Research and Development (R&D) team has played a crucial role in this achievement. Over recent years, they have conducted extensive research on various distillates to assess their suitability for inclusion in product formulations. Their findings are impressive: in 2023, products utilizing recycled materials accounted for approximately 15% of ASK Chemicals’ global resin production. This milestone underscores the company’s commitment to integrating sustainable practices into its production processes.

Quality assurance is paramount at ASK Chemicals, ensuring that the incorporation of distillates does not compromise the high performance for which their products are known. This meticulous approach to quality control is a testament to the company’s dedication to excellence and sustainability.

Dr. Jens Müller, Chief Technology Officer at ASK Chemicals, expressed pride in the company’s achievements: “We are pleased to report this noteworthy success on our sustainability journey. Our progress in this area is proof of our commitment to resource efficiency and environmental responsibility. A big thank you to our teams in Research & Development and Process Engineering.”
