Environmentally benign polymers for products used in aqueous systems

Wageningen Food & Biobased Research develops biobased alternatives for products that are used in aqueous environments. These include water softeners, surfactants, viscosity regulators, absorbers and binding agents. They are, for example, used in dishwashing and cleaning products, products for home & personal care and in water-based paints, adhesives and coatings. This enables chemical companies, producers and end users to reduce their environmental impact, while agri-food companies derive more value from their agri-side streams.
