Title: Sustainable 100% Bio-based Surfactants

Our new ECO Range, adds over 50 ethoxylated surfactants to our portfolio of 100% bio-based emulsifiers, wetting agents, dispersants, and multifunctional carrier fluids for liquid concentrates, by using bio-based ethylene oxide (EO) which we manufacture from biomass ethanol. Coupling the use of bio-based EO with the high proportion of renewable energy used at the manufacturing plant, leads to a significant reduction in carbon footprint for the ECO product range.
