Sekab can help you meet your sustainability targets by offering bio-based chemicals for your processes. Our chemicals are identical and have the same quality as the fossil-based alternatives but are produced from bio-based raw materials in a process run on green bioenergy and can significantly reduce your environmental footprint.
Ethyl acetate from Sekab is produced from bio-based ethanol with renewable bioenergy in a closed-loop system and with as little toxicological effects as possible.
We are proud to be able to offer our finest sustainability labelled Ethyl Acetate Pure which gives you a fully certified product guaranteed to be 100% physical bio-based.
An option might be Ethyl Acetate Prime, which is bio-based and certified but without the guarantee for 100% physical bio. This means the product is sustainability certified according to the mass balance approach.
As a bio-based but un-certified option, we can offer Ethyl Acetate Basic.
Sekab’s ethyl acetate is sustainability certified according to the certification body ISCC – International Sustainability & Carbon Certification. This guarantees that the chemical is produced from renewable bioethanol, using renewable energy in a circular process with advanced bio purification.

Ethyl acetate is a solvent used in many contexts, including printing inks, varnishes and car care chemicals, and when manufacturing plastics and rubber. In the food industry, ethyl acetate is used in the manufacture of flavourings and in the pharmaceutical industry as an extraction solvent in the production of pharmaceuticals. Ethyl acetate is also a common component of cosmetics and nail polish remover.
Ethyl acetate is considered to be one of the least environmentally harmful of organic solvents. It is very effective while it is easily broken down in both air and water.
