High-quality standard

To give substance to our high quality standards we already applied for ISO certification in 1995, which was awarded to us in that year. Our constant attention to improvement is reflected perfectly by this standard.

Shift to green

Rutteman Rotterdam

Many companies are facing challenges in the climate change transition. Since the hydrocarbon chemistry will fade out over time, the demand for renewable materials is growing. Even though our portfolio fits into this challenge seamlessly, there is still a large gap of potential substitutes not developed or stands in their infancy. To contribute to this transition, Rutteman assists its customers by developing brand-new products based on renewable materials. With our network and experience, we aid companies in the complicated shift from fossil-based to sustainable and renewable chemistry.
