Specialty chemicals expert Clariant prioritizes the agrochemical industry’s need for both advanced performance and sustainability as it debuts the latest additions to its portfolio of adjuvants and dispersing agents at ISAA 2010.

Synergen® GL 5 was developed specifically to support the crop protection market’s interest and growing requirement for more sustainable agrochemicals without compromising on effectiveness. The optimal solution for Glyphosate formulations with a low environmental impact, Synergen GL 5 is a highly effective adjuvant derived from natural, renewable resources. It is non-toxic and non-irritating and therefore does not require any hazard labeling. The adjuvant has been evaluated by several major crop protection companies and will be included in formulations as of 2011.

Synergen GL5 is exempted from EPA tolerances and REACh requirements. The new product carries Clariant’s EcoTain label to identify its environmental-related benefits to customers. Products under the EcoTain label are biodegradable, low tox, low VOC, APEO free, and offer low emission potential.

Among the highlights at ISAA 2010 is the introduction of Clariant’s new benchmark polymeric dispersing agent for agro formulations, Dispersogen® PSL 100. Requiring only very low dosage at concentrations of 0.5% - 1%, it provides a powerful, cost-effective, “more-for-less” solution for crop protection formulations even when used in high electrolyte-containing environments.

Dispersogen PSL 100 is readily biodegradable. It has an excellent tox and eco-tox profile that eliminates the need for hazard labeling. Available as a 100% material, this reduces transport and storage capacity and costs, adding to the agent’s efficiency and environmental benefits. An EPA exemption for Dispersogen PSL 100 is currently being processed.

Dispersogen PSL 100 belongs to Clariant‘s new generation of dispersing agents whose performance effectiveness will be presented at a symposium during ISAA 2010.

"The market for adjuvants and dispersing agents is driven by the need for effective products with an outstanding toxicological profile and based on renewable resources wherever possible,” comments Sven Dammann, Clariant Global Marketing Manager for Crop Protection. “Customers do not only want a sustainable solution, they like to understand the philosophy behind it. ISAA 2010 gives us a valuable opportunity to discuss the benefits of our performance differentiated sustainable chemistries face to face with the agrochemical industry.”

With more than 40 years’ experience in crop protection, Clariant delivers global and tailormade solutions with its broad product portfolio of formulation inerts, including adjuvants and dispersing agents.
