The board of the European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC) recently approved the membership of Evonik, raising EBIC’s membership to 62.
Evonik is one of the world‘s leading specialty chemicals companies. The strategy of Evonik focuses on specialties, customer-focused innovation, and a performance-oriented culture. Evonik provides high performing additives to the global agricultural industry to improve plant care solutions. With emphasis to innovative and sustainable solutions, its portfolio of BREAK-THRU®️ products (spreaders, penetrants, antifoams, dispersants, emulsifiers) includes dedicated products which are biodegradable and/or bio-based surfactants and come with a benign tox profile.
Recently Evonik also launched specific biocompatible BREAK-THRU®️ products for microbial agro solutions including biostimulants, which prolong shelf life combined with performance improvements. Evonik´s BREAK-GARD®️ IR 100 is a soil adjuvant which is also a biostimulant: the product increases the penetration and wettability of soil and thereby the water and nutrient availability in the rhizosphere; especially under stress conditions like salty soil or salty irrigation water.
