Adipic acid

Adipic Acid, also called Hexanedioic Acid, is an organic Dicarboxylic Acid with the molecular structural formula C6H10O4. Adipic Acid is a white crystalline powder and is mainly used as an intermediate product for the production of Polyamide (Nylon 6.6), plasticisers, Polyurethane, Synthetic resins, Textile and Leather Auxiliaries, Lubricants, Starch, Crop Protection products and Powder Coatings. MATSEN CHEMIE AG is one of the leading European distributors of Adipic Acid. We have been working closely with renowned manufacturers for many years and can therefore offer Adipic Acid 100% CO2 neutral.

CO2 neutral available:

For this purpose, we first developed a Product Carbon Footprint (PCF), which presents the emissions arising in detail on a “cradle to gate” basis. We also reduce emissions to a minimum through efficient logistics and intelligent storage locations in Europe. We then finally compensate for the remaining unavoidable emissions with Gold Standard CO₂ certificates.
