VersaGen Solvents

About VersaGen

VersaGen products are complex methyl esters. Methyl esters are a family of materials that can be produced from used cooking oils, animal fats or vegetable oils. The methyl esters we produce have a unique carbon chain distribution that is determined by our oil and conversion process.  VersaGen methyl esters are quality-checked by means of a number of standard ASTM test methods.

A safe replacement for many hazardous products

Controlling water and air (VOC) emissions is a major concern for industrial facilities. VersaGen provides a viable replacement for many of the hazardous products used in the chemical, industrial and agricultural markets. These include d-Limonene, mineral spirits, mineral seal oil and other high VOC solvents that can be dangerous to human health and the environment. In addition, VersaGen can further lower sulfur levels in fuel compression ignition engines. Non-toxic and biodegradable, VersaGen methyl esters are produced to meet the specific requirements of our customers.

VersaGen is the economical, biodegradable and ecologically safe answer to creating highly effective products.

An environmentally safe solvent replacement

As a recognized manufacturer of biodegradable and renewable resources used in the chemical, industrial and agricultural markets, we produce VersaGen solvents that deliver flexibility, performance, cost-effectiveness and safe solutions for today’s formulary demands.
