California company gets EPA Safer Choice nod for renewable surfactant

August 3, 2020 |

In California, Advanced BioCatalytics says it has received the coveted EPA Safer Choice Approval for Glucospike, a microbiology-based surfactant for cleaning applications.

To qualify for the Safer Choice label, a product must meet EPA’s Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human and environmental health criteria.

“At [Advanced BioCatalytics] ABC we have been building surfactant-based applications, based on fermentation of microorganisms for over 20 years. We have decided to productize some of our key raw materials and make them available to formulators.  We believe the industrial chemical market is finally ready for some truly sustainable chemistry,” says company president Chris Harano in a statement.

The Safer Choice program currently partners with about 500 formulator-manufacturer partners who make more than 2,000 Safer Choice-certified products for both retail and institutional customers.
