Press Kit: Covestro Media Talk about Biomass
- Biomass from plants and trees will play a key role in the circular economy of the future: As a renewable carbon source, it reduces the dependence on oil and thus also the CO₂ footprint. Covestro is developing raw materials from biomass for high-value applications and is also researching the use of new carbon sources such as biowaste and wood waste.
On this page you will find the presentation as well as background stories, photos, infographics and videos for the Covestro Media Talk "Biomass – raw material of the future".

Covestro has developed the partially bio-based dispersion Bayhydrol® eco UV 2877 and the hardener Bayhydur® eco 701-90 for waterborne wood and furniture coatings. The coatings show the same good properties as conventional aqueous coatings. © Dariusz Jarzabek - stock.adobe.com
The new film former Baycusan® eco E 1001 with a high proportion of plant-based raw materials was developed for make-up formulations with lasting hold, but it also meets customer demands for more sustainable products. © Covestro
