VIDEO: Croda prepares for bio-EO surfactants production

I’m so bummed that I was unable to attend the World Surfactants conference, which was recently held in New Jersey, but hopefully I’ll be able to get some presentation materials to peruse through. In the meantime, here’s a nice video from Croda released last month as it celebrated its $170 million ECO Project, which included the construction of its bioethanol-based ethylene oxide facility in Delaware that is expected to be completed by the end of this year, and the company has also recently launched its new 100% bio-based ECO range of surfactants that will use the bio-based EO and derivatives.

In the video below, Croda explains why the company is venturing into this project especially in bio-surfactants.
