Acetic anhydride

Acetic anhydride is used in everyday products, including detergents, aspirin and paracetamol, wood acetylated products and plastics.

Ethyl acetate

Ethyl acetate (EtAc) is also used in everyday items, such as decaffeination, printing inks, paints, adhesives and nail varnish remover.

To get there we have set ambitious interim targets for 2030 as we continue to create vital products that help others to reduce their carbon footprints and lead the hydrogen revolution. We’re investing in this sustainable future right now, building the infrastructure that will deliver carbon savings with further investment of more than £1bn to come.
