P2 Science starts commercial production of renewable C9 aldehyde




P2 Science Inc, a bio-renewable chemistry company has produced the first ever commercial quantities of BioNonanal, at its new plant in Naugatuck.
BioNonanal is a 100 percent renewable, vegetable-based linear C9 aldehyde, commonly used in fragrances to impart waxy, citrus and floral notes to consumer products in both household and personal care markets.
To date, nonanal has been mainly produced from a petrochemical, Octene. The only option for a renewable nonanal has been via a costly extraction process from certain essential oils such as orange oil. The resulting cost of such a natural extract nonanal made it impractical to use in most fragrance applications. P2’s patented green chemistry process enables the efficient conversion of many common vegetable oils into nonanal and other valuable speciality products for use in cosmetics and related applications.
