U.S. EPA gives AkzoNobel Green Chemistry Designation for Dissolvine GL

November 18, 2013 |

In Illinois, the EPA gave AkzoNobel’s Dissolvine GL, the company’s biodegradable and biobased chelate, the EPA Design for the Environment label to recognize the product as being a safer ingredient for consumers and the environment. EPA awards the DfE designation only to chemicals that pass the strict DfE criteria after the agency’s scientific team screens each ingredient for potential human health and environmental impacts.

Dissolvine GL is derived predominantly from U.S.-grown corn and readily biodegradable. It is used by the leading makers of cleaning products as a chelating agent to control hard water ions.
