Looking for raw materials that will enhance your current formulas and improve your sustainability position?

Green Biologics is a leader in providing innovative solutions for the coatings market. Our renewable, high-performance n-butanol (nC4-OL™)can be used as a solvent in a number of paints, coatings, adhesives and ink applications, giving you the opportunity to design high-efficiency formulations. With its clear, colorless and neutral liquid characteristics,n-butanol provides a high-quality material with very low water content and an improved contaminant profile compared to traditional petrochemical synthetic pathways.


Key Properties of n-butanol (nC4-OL™):

Total purity ≥ 99.9%
Aldehydes Not detected
Renewable carbon weight 100%
Water content 146ppm
Isobutanol < 100ppm
Appearance Clear, colorless


Pure. Powerful. Transparent.

Green Biologics’ renewable n-butanol is uniquely engineered to solve coatings challenges and provide value to your formulation needs.Its high purity eliminates additional processing steps to remove impurities, mask odor, or eliminate aldehydes found in petrol-based butanol. Our molecule is, however, identical to n-butanol produced from petroleum feedstocks – which allows for direct drop-in to existing applications and formulations – to provide you with apremium product and performance characteristics.



Delivering superior value


Less volatile, more stable pricing as compared to petroleum-based products
Higher impurity with improved efficiencies
Drop-in replacement requiring no Management of Change
Tailored & flexible service, including technical support, logistics, and consignment
LEEDS credits applicable
