Croda signs marketing agreement for cleaning raw materials with UK biosciences firm

January 13/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Croda International says it has entered a global sales and marketing agreement with Genesis Biosciences (Cardiff, UK) to expand its portfolio of safe and sustainable cleaning raw materials, said Chemweek.

The first phase of the partnership will see the launch of two probiotic ingredients, one for use in hard-surface cleaning products and one for use in odor-neutralizing products. The two ingredients will be available from the end of January, the company says.

Genesis Biosciences specializes in the fermentation of bacteria strains to develop safe and natural microbial and antimicrobial products, Croda says. This technology is the result of years of [R&D] to characterize natural beneficial bacteria and optimize high-performing consortia for specific applications, says Peter Wallbank, business development manager at Genesis Biosciences.

As MRC informed earlier, Croda International (Goole, UK) says it has entered a partnership with Sentient Science (Buffalo, New York), an asset management and software services company, for the recommended use of Crodas Rewitec additives for wind turbine gearboxes and main bearings.

We remind that Russia's output of chemical products rose in November 2020 by 9.5% year on year. At the same time, production of basic chemicals increased in the first eleven months of 2020 by 6.6% year on year, according to Rosstat's data. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, polymers in primary form accounted for the greatest increase in the January-November 2020 output. November production of polymers in primary form rose to 896,000 tonnes from 852,000 tonnes in October. Overall output of polymers in primary form totalled 9,240,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 17.1%  year on year.

Croda acquired Rewitec in 2019 and began to offer to energy technology customers nano- and micro-particle-based additives to increase the durability of machinery by lowering friction and reducing wear, the company says. Prior to the acquisition in 2017, Sentient Science validated Rewitecs DuraGear gearbox oil additives for use in wind turbine gearboxes, it says.
