Climate preservation is one of the greatest challenges of our time. And we have a responsibility to work towards it whenever we can.

The groundbreaking technology combines environmental compatibility with the highest standards of safety, cost-effectiveness and technology.

Gasodor® S-Free is an innovative, ecological solution for all natural-gas suppliers that take climate protection seriously. Typical natural-gas odorants contain sulfur, and Gasodor® S-Free does not, representing substantial, sustainable relief for the environment.

Gasodor® S-Free is the result of years of research conducted in cooperation with Ruhrgas AG Essen and the German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water (the Deutsche Vereinigung des Gas und Wasserfachs e.V., or DVGW) in Bonn. Today, Gasodor® S-Free is already being used throughout numerous municipal networks – successfully, and sustainably.

Terpene Ingredients

Terpene Ingredients

Throughout our history, we’ve been bringing innovation and expertise to the cleaner production of terpene ingredients—beginning with the creation of dihydromyrcenol and continuing through the development of revolutionary green chemistry, which is replacing otherwise heavily polluting processes. To this day, we are the only manufacturer to make anethole, linalools and various other widely used fragrance ingredients from renewable materials.

By using naturally occurring renewable and sustainable feedstocks—crude sulfate turpentine from the pulp & paper industry, and D-limonene from the citrus industry—we can produce integral components for diverse applications in a more earth-friendly way.

Scientific passion and creative ingenuity have found their way into all of our terpene ingredients, and today they can be found across a broad array of market segments in some of the world's best known brands in beauty, personal, and oral care as well as everyday household products available everywhere.
