Biobased production dishwasher detergent and leather
Proven by Wageningen Food & Biobased Research: Pectin from sugar beet pulp is suitable as biobased ingredient for (dishwasher) detergents and the production of leather. Wageningen researchers investigated different applications previously. On the basis of these research results, Dalli de Klok and Smit & Zoon intend to use the beet pulp, and Cosun has plans for a new test factory. By replacing oil-based ingredients by biobased alternatives, they contribute to improving the sustainability of the chemical industry; reduced CO2 emissions in production, and fewer non-degradable and toxic substances.
