Redox for sustainable & healthy proteins

Eating a plant-based diet is not just good for one’s health, but it is also good for the environment with the impact of livestock and fish production contributing to the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  At Redox, we have expanded our range to offer a sustainable and healthy alternative to meat-based proteins.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations, the livestock sector is ‘one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global’. They estimate that meat based protein production is responsible for 14.5% of the world’s GHG emissions. World scientists on the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agree that we need to reduce the amount of GHG’s in the atmosphere by 80% by 2050 in order to avoid catastrophic climate change.  

Plant protein production offers a lower environmental impact and a sustainable solution by reducing energy consumption, emissions, land usage and water consumption. Plant based protein diets have also become a solution to many health issues, showing beneficial at lowering the risk of heart disease, reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes and providing a better means of weight control, making them an ingredient of choice in many food and beverage products, both vegan and non-vegan.

At Redox, we have added more plant-based products to our portfolio in response to increased demand and market changes. It is a part of our continued efforts in bringing the next ‘big thing’ to customers, while also keeping with our sustainability goals. Our plant protein products include:

  • Soy Protein
  • Pea Protein
  • Rice Protein
  • Wheat Protein

Product Focus - Akulon IG® by DSM

Supplied by Redox across Australia, Akulon IG® by DSM provides an effective alternative to P66 polyimides while delivering properties that help customers produce greener and lighter products with superior impact strength, excellent abrasion resistance, high heat resistance and excellent flame retardancy.

Akulon IG®, a PA6/46 blend high performance polyamide, brings together the best of DSM’s Stanyl® and Akulon®:

  • Stanyl® (PA46) offers a high melting point, resistance to short-term peak temperatures and good flow as it combines high stiffness retention up to 290°C with excellent wear and abrasion resistance. Stanyl® is also ideal for secondary operations in high temperature environments.
  • Akulon® (PA6) is a versatile thermoplastic, performing over a wide temperature range with good flow and high long-term resistance, resulting in continuous-use temperatures of up to 185°C.

Akulon IG® is engineered to be interchangeable with standard PA66 and has a property profile very similar to PA66, including E-mod, yield stress and elongation at break. The blend of PA6/PA46 does not rely on the ADN and HMDA building blocks, consequently the raw material feedstream is not capacity constrained.

Though its unique blend Akulon IG® provides a portfolio of material grades, suited to all processing techniques, including injection moulding that covers many applications. Products include:

  • Akulon IG-HG5 - 25% Glass Reinforced, Heat Stabilized
  • Akulon IG-HG7 - 35% Glass Reinforced, Heat Stabilized
  • Akulon IG-UH - unfilled compound used for a variety of PA66 material replacement opportunities using 0-50% glass filler.

Product Focus - Soda Ash by ANSAC

Soda ash is an adaptable compound used to manufacture a variety of products, proving to be a staple ingredient for chemical synthesising and detergent formulation. Redox is an agent for the American Natural Soda Ash Company (ANSAC), distributing soda ash across the Australian chemical and detergent marketplace.

Soda ash, or sodium carbonate (Na2CO3), is a white anhydrous, powdered or granular material refined from the mineral trona which is regarded as the standard for quality and purity. It is available in three main grades (light, medium and dense) with the same chemical properties, differing only in physical characteristic that affect flow and angle repose, such as bulk density, particle size and shapes.

Sourced from ANSAC’s Green River Basin in Wyoming USA, our soda ash is an essential raw material used in many applications and industrial processes, including:

  • Detergents and Soaps, including domestic and commercial products for kitchens, clothing and bathrooms.
  • Chemicals, including fertilisers, artificial sodium bentonites or active bentonites, synthetic detergents, organic and inorganic colourings, enamels, the fuel industry and for the fats, glues and gelatine products.

With purpose-built soda ash facilities in Port Kembla and Melbourne, Redox provides packing capabilities for both bulk bags and small bags (15kg and 25kg). Our history and reputation within the soda ash market have shown that we have the expertise, resources and personnel to ensure timely delivery, clean transfers and cost-effective distribution of bulk quantities of soda ash.
