Decovery® plant-based resins
The evolution towards sustainable paint technology with Decovery®
Sustainability is increasingly becoming an important decision criteria for consumers in their buying behavior, as also shown in recent research across the globe. In the past, the paint industry has made a major step forward on sustainability through the introduction of waterborne paints. These waterborne paints still are however for a large part fossil based. DSM has created a revolutionary technology to replace these fossil-based components by renewable materials, lowering the environmental footprint even further without sacrificing performance.

Frequently asked questions
The answer often depends on whom you ask. For example, some companies define ‘biobased’ as being a traditional non-bio product that’s manufactured using bio-friendly processes (for example non-fossil based energy sources). We do this at DSM but the significant difference with Decovery® is that the resin itself is made from bio-based materials, ie plants. This is why, to avoid confusion, we call it plant-based paint.
Non-renewable fossil feedstocks, like crude oil are not only becoming scarcer but they also contribute to climate change. By using plant-based materials that perform as well as (if not better than) fossil-based equivalents we unlock environmental benefits that reduce our overall ecological footprint. In markets like paint, for example, we see customers increasingly making this a key part of their decision criteria.
The short answer is yes. It delivers an excellent finish with outstanding
durability and no yellowing effect (as associated with traditional Alkyd-based) coatings. It’s easy to apply and use, contains zero-to-low VOCs, and delivers a carbon footprint reduction of up to 34% based on replacing crude oil with plants.
