Cleantech innovator Celtic Renewables has signed its first major re-seller, Caldic, as it gears up for the launch of Scotland’s first sustainable chemical plant in Grangemouth, Scotland. The partnership secures a fast go-to-market strategy for Caldic’s bio-solvents range, supporting its customers in advancing their sustainability journey.
Celtic Renewables’ patented low-carbon technology converts unwanted and low-value biological material into high-value renewable chemicals, sustainable biofuel, and other commercially and environmentally valuable products.
Caldic, a leading solutions provider for the life science and speciality chemical industries will distribute the bio-solvents produced by Celtic Renewables. This high purity, bio solution, with an extremely low carbon footprint, will provide Caldic’s customers with a sustainable bio-based alternative to fossil fuel produced solvents.
This significant deal coincides with COP-26 which is good news for the UK as it transitions to a net-zero economy. The announcement of the partnership was made by Mark Simmers, Chief Executive Officer of Celtic Renewables, at a COP 26 event on 3rd November entitled Scotland’s Green Innovation and Investment Showcase, attended by Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
Celtic Renewables, awarded the most innovative biotech SME in Europe, is recognised as a shining example of a sustainable solution provider with this innovation which will steer the world away from dependence on petrochemicals.
