In the Asia Pacific region, Brenntag has been working with a Korean producer in the area of chemicals recycling since November 2015. The partner company treats chemicals used in the electronics manufacturing so that they can be reused in other industries. As part of a joint project, Brenntag Asia Pacific promotes the use of recycled solvents among its customers in the coatings industry.
The purity requirements of the chemicals used determine whether treated chemicals are suitable for a particular application. Brenntag provides extensive application expertise for promotion of the recycled chemicals. Initial sales successes were recorded in Vietnam in the year under review.
