FutureFuel Corp. was created in 2005 as a special purpose acquisition vehicle to acquire companies that we believe can make a notable impact in the biofuel and fuel industries. In the summer of 2006, we found just that in FutureFuel Chemical Company (formerly named “Eastman SE, Inc.”) near Batesville, Arkansas. On October 31, 2006 we completed the acquisition and since then have worked to become a leader in the U.S. biofuel industry, while maintaining the facility’s status as a world-class specialty chemical manufacturer.

Product Stewardship

Product Stewardship aims to increase awareness and protection of health, safety, and the environment throughout the life cycle of chemicals. This is accomplished, in part, through risk characterization, evaluation and information dissemination. As part of our commitment to Product Stewardship we have implemented a process to evaluate the hazards and risks associated with our products. The process involves gathering the following data on our products:

  • Chemical Identity and Use
  • Classification and Labeling Information
  • Physical and Chemical Properties

To ensure this information is readily available to all of our stakeholders, we have developed product summaries for our products which pose the highest risks. Please click on the link below to access the summary for the product you are interested in.
