PCC SE has built a production plant for ultra-pure, aerosol grade dimethyl ether (DME) through OOO DME Aerosol, Pervomaysky (Russia), a joint venture with its long-standing Russian partner, JSC Shchekinoazot. The aim of PCC SE is to enter the market for DME, which is mainly used in the cosmetics industry for example as a propellant for hair styling products, but also for the production of polyurethane construction foam. Since May 2021, the plant has been powered by electricity from 100 % renewable sources. The switch to wind and solar power highlights the commitment of both joint venture partners to their sustainability strategy.
