Overview

Biopesticides are pesticidal active ingredients (a.i.) based on microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi, nematodes and other naturally occurring substances. They're a vital part of the future of global sustainable agriculture.

Like conventional crop protection formulations, biopesticides need dispersants in suspension concentrates and water dispersible granules (WDG). Our chemistry precisely controls the degree of sulfonation, the chemical parameter that regulates surface affinity and adsorption.

Capabilities & Services

In biologicals, many active ingredients are UV light sensitive. Unlike other dispersants, Kraft lignosulfonates protect biologically active substances from UV degradation. Our biobased Kraft lignosulfonates absorb UV (ultraviolet) light - protecting UV-sensitive biopesticide actives.

Our line of Polyfon products fall under the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) generic materials list.
