Solvay is committed to enabling home, hygiene and beauty care customers to minimize their fossil-based raw materials consumption and reduce their carbon footprint.

We are proud to announce that Solvay’s Zhangjiagang plant in China has been certified under the mass balance regime of the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS system for manufacturing bio-circular Fentamine® DMAPA UP. This chemical intermediate is key to manufacturing the Mirataine® range of surfactants, which are used in several home, hygiene and beauty care applications spanning from dishwashing liquids to surface cleaners and from shampoos to body washes.

Advancing circular home hygiene and beauty care with the mass balance approac


The successful mass balance certification of our Chinese plant in Zhangjiagang by the ISCC PLUS system will allow Solvay to track and trace the content of circular and renewable feedstock across value chains in the next generation of bio-circular ingredients.

With the launch of this bio-circular Fentamine® DMAPA UP, we are making a significant step toward improving the environmental footprint of home, hygiene and beauty care products, reflecting our dedication to sustainability and creating a circular ecosystem.
