Biobased agrochemicals for sustainable farming

By 2050, the global agricultural industry will need to feed more than nine billion people.

That projection puts pressure on farmers worldwide to grow more crops, more sustainably, in an increasingly restrictive regulatory landscape.

At Corbion, we believe that through creativity and partnership, we can positively shape the future of agriculture.

From formulation to farmer to field

Our PURASOLV® green solvents are a range of lactate esters that provide the superior solvency needed when creating efficient, high-performance agrochemical formulations. The PURASOLV® portfolio enables the development of more complete products combining multiple actives, or the reformulation of existing products to deliver greater benefits.

  • In formulations, biobased PURASOLV® solvents offer green solvency power and high stability.

  • On farms, PURASOLV® is non-flammable, safe, and easy to handle, with a pleasant scent, supporting safe storage and transport.

  • And in the field, PURASOLV® helps farmers increase crop protection efficacy with an environmentally friendly solution.

Biobased PURASOLV® solvents from Corbion help to accelerate agricultural productivity while protecting people, plants and the planet.


Superior solvency

The PURASOLV® range offers excellent solvency and enables formulators to develop products that are both safe and compliant. These biobased agricultural solvents help agrochemical manufacturers create crop protection formulations with high active loads, including emulsion concentrates (EC), dispersible concentrates (DC) and oil dispersions (OD).

Our agrochemical solvents are effective with a diverse array of active ingredients (AIs) and combinations for achieving enhanced crop protection. The range, which includes OMRI-listed PURASOLV® BL, is ideally suited for use in a constantly evolving market, offering both efficiency and high performance.

Organic formulations

Obtaining organic certification for agrochemicals can be a complex, time-consuming, and costly undertaking. Our latest solvent for biopesticides, PURASOLV® BL, is already OMRI listed and ready to use. This green solvent offers a cost-effective solution, even when used in plant extract formulations, by providing enhanced stability and efficacy. It was developed with the highest safety standards in mind and comes with strong environmental credentials.
