The ECO range of bio-based surfactants is designed to meet increasing market demand for sustainable, high-performance ingredient options. This range provides 100 percent bio-based and 100 percent renewable options that reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and lower the carbon footprint of these ingredients versus their petroleum-based alternatives. By simply replacing a petroleum-derived ingredient with its renewable variant, a significant improvement in bio-based content and renewability can be achieved without a sacrifice in product performance.
The awards, announced on the second of April at the World Bio Markets Conference in Amsterdam, bring recognition to leading innovators from across the chemical industry for bio-based business successes. Croda was an exhibitor and presenter at this conference, discussing sustainability challenges and how they can support customers in overcoming them.
Chris Sayner, Vice President Customer Alliances, Corporate Sustainability, who accepted the award on behalf of Croda said, “It’s a pleasure to receive this award for our bio-based surfactants initiative, particularly given the industry voting for us against another nine great contenders. Thanks to all who voted. It is a strong endorsement for our investment and our ability to contribute to the USDA BioPreferred Programme (www.biopreferred.gov) with 100% Bio-based surfactants.”
