Lonza Teams Up with Intelligent Biocides LLC

November 11, 2005

Lonza Inc., Fair Lawn, NJ, has licensed the distribution rights to Intelligent Biocides’ Surfacine technology on an exclusive basis.

Surfacine is a persistent antimicrobial agent that incorporates a water-insoluble antimicrobial compound, silver iodide, in a polymeric biguanide matrix. The ingredient provides sustained antimicrobial action even after rinsing or washing, according to company executives.

In other news, the company will sell its Painesville, OH-based fatty acid and glycerine operation to Twin Rivers Technologies, Quincy, MA.

Twin Rivers Technologies is an oleochemical producer offering a broad range of fatty acids to the soap, detergent, personal care and industrial markets, as well as fatty esters for the snack food and industrial markets. Lonza Group, headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, operates 21 production and R&D facilities in nine countries. Company executives said the transaction is subject to due diligence.
