Since its creation, DRT has used plant-based resources derived from the forest industry. The research of alternatives to fossil based products is a primary corporate objective. With its bio-based resins, DRT supplies more than 20 industrial sectors from the adhesives market (including packaging, tape, tags, construction) to the coating and road marking industries. These products offer a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based ingredients. With its proven performance and cost-effectiveness, DRT products allow numerous industries to take a green shift.

As explained by Benjamin Léger, DRT’s Marketing Manager for Chemical Intermediates: "Our goal is to provide technical and economic solutions. The acquisition of the North American company, Pinova Inc., allows us to expand our ranges of resins to better answer the market’s expectations and future requirements. FORAL® is a tangible example of the kind of stabilized resins demanded by our customers today."

In addition to being known for its high quality products, DRT is also admired for its eco-responsible approach. DRT operations at all levels strive to be environmentally friendly, ethical and innovative – forming the basis of their corporate culture.
