Our future as a people, and as a company, hinges on our ability to innovate. We must not only continue to create value using fewer resources, we also need to maximize our use of renewable energy and materials. We are determined to turn what is an obvious challenge into a clear opportunity and bring more value to our customers and society in general.

We're on a good path with Levasil Colloidal Silica. A product of two natural ingredients—sand and water—colloidal silica enhances and improves key functionalities of other products and manufacturing processes. As a result, our customers’ products demonstrate superior performance ultimately producing sustainability in their business as well as in our environment.

But supplying the right solutions goes beyond selling products. That’s why we also help our partners overcome challenges along the entire life cycle – from compulsory eco-efficiency analysis in investment decisions to the use of hydropower and sustainable raw materials in their manufacturing. Product stewardship is as important as looking after the economic, technical and commercial aspects of product management. We want to ensure that our products are handled and used safely.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Nouryon. It’s vital for the future success of our company, our society and our planet.
