The Renewable Carbon Index (RCI) calculates the renewable material content in a product. It’s calculated by dividing the carbons from renewable sources by the total carbons in an active ingredient. IBC is working to index all of our products according to RCI. TegraSurf™, for example, IBC’s leading bio-based surfactant, boasts an RCI of up to 90%, signifying a significant presence of carbon atoms from natural sources.
IBC is dedicated to optimizing oil production and enhancing energy efficiency. Our products are designed for targeted and specialized dosage rates, preventing excessive reagent use on job sites. This increases job efficiency while minimizing environmental impact. Additionally, we develop concentrated versions of our products to reduce overland emissions.
to the Future
Our mission is to improve the world with sustainable chemistry. Our innovations group is constantly updating our products to meet environmental regulations and advancements. By incorporating bio-based surfactants into our formerly synthetic formulations, we’ve raised the RCI of our product line from 0% to 70% in some cases. Our new line of HI&I products, TegraSurf and EdenSurf are also certified USDA BioPreferred. We keep striving for excellence!
