SuperBio Workshop @ BBEPP: Biosurfactants, a biobased ingredient with great potential in a wide variety of products
April 3, 2017 @ 09:00 - 17:00
Biosurfactants have the potential to be used in a wide variety of applications. Drivers to use biosurfactants are to increase the biobased content of the end-product, to replace current substances which are to be banned from market, or their beneficial activity in the end application.
Participants from companies active in surfactant production, agrochemicals, cleaning and cleaning products, or interested in using biosurfactants.
