Ingevity to present at the American Society for Testing and Materials 41st Symposium on Pesticide Formulation and Delivery Systems
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Nov. 2, 2021 – Ingevity Corporation (NYSE:NGVT) today announced that it will participate in the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) 41st Symposium on Pesticide Formulation and Delivery Systems in Atlanta, Georgia, on Nov. 3. Ingevity Senior Formulation Chemist Gift Metavarayuth will introduce the company’s AltaOil™ portfolio, a family of high-performing dispersing oils for oil dispersion (OD) formulations.
Compared to commonly used alternatives such as vegetable oil and methylated vegetable oil, AltaOil products provide excellent formulation stability, hard water stability and built-in rainfastness. AltaOil is 100% bio-derived and has strong compatibility with a range of solvents and surfactants, offering greater flexibility for different formulation needs. Metavarayuth’s presentation will highlight AltaOil’s performance advantages for biological and conventional OD pesticide formulations.
“The world’s continuously growing population, along with a decreasing amount of arable land and scarce water resources, are driving regulators to impose more stringent environmental mandates,” said Dr. Mariola Beresniewicz-Kopcinski, global business manager, agrochemicals, at Ingevity. “Ingevity developed this high-performing, eco-friendly technology to help formulators enhance pesticide performance while lessening their overall impact on the environment.”
The annual symposium provides a forum for the discussion of formulation and application technologies associated with pesticides, biostimulants, micronutrients and agrochemical adjuvant products.
