Taking a trip back to nature
Agrochemicals play a critical role in feeding the world’s vast and growing population, but it is equally critical that they are produced sustainably, in ways that won’t harm people or the natural resources on which they depend.
PURASOLV® protects what matters
Biobased solvents such as PURASOLV® lactate esters from Corbion help deliver sustainable crop protection for greater disease resistance and increased yield. Whichever way you look at it, PURASOLV® biobased agrochemical solvents protect. Your customers. The future of your business. And our planet.
At Corbion, we are committed to helping manufacturers achieve their product ambitions in a safe and sustainable way. For makers of agrochemicals, that can mean having green solvents to enable the creation of highly effective pesticides – or biopesticides – that improve agricultural production while safeguarding health for people, animals and the planet.
Ethyl lactate, on which PURASOLV® is based, is found naturally in small quantities in a wide variety of foods such as wine, chicken and fruits. Offering low toxicity, low phytotoxicity and non-mutagenicity, PURASOLV® biobased solvents make it easier for formulators to develop high-performing products that are both safe and compliant with regulatory requirements.
What can PURASOLV® do for you?
A range of esters derived from L- and D-lactic acid, PURASOLV® provides multifunctional benefits that make the most of what biopesticides can do naturally. Offering superior solubility, PURASOLV® enhances the performance of a broad range of active ingredients and combinations, giving manufacturers great flexibility to develop formulations that deliver outstanding crop protection, and to continue innovating for a constantly evolving market.
