Crop protection

Lignins are frequently used in the production of pesticides in the form of water-dispersible powders, granules or aqueous suspension concentrates.

During the manufacture of these products, the lignin coats the surface of the active substances, which simultaneously results in a negative charging of the substance particles.

The particles, which are now negatively charged and dispersed in water, repel each other. This prevents re-agglomeration. Powdered products that are manufactured with lignin are very easily dispersed in water.

Lignin is a major component of wood and is one of the most abundant natural organic wood polymers which provides a multitude of functionalities.

Our lignin is used in a variety of industrial and agricultural areas for various applications.
