AkzoNobel and Itaconix to develop bio-based chelates for the detergents industry

September 05, 2017

AkzoNobel’s Specialty Chemicals business and Itaconix have signed an application agreement to evaluate and develop innovative bio-based chelates for use in the consumer and industrial detergents and cleaners markets.

It is the second partnership stemming from a joint development agreement signed by the companies earlier this year to develop and commercialize sustainable products made from renewable feedstocks using Itaconix technology. Products from this collaboration will be marketed under AkzoNobel’s Dissolvine® brand.
