Glucamides are the next generation of natural surfactants derived from glucose and natural oils, with a Renewable Carbon Index of up to 96% and with a top cleaning performance that matches current non-green alternatives in the market. They are extremely mild and create formulations that are gentle to hands and surface materials, and their excellent eco-toxicological profile makes it suitable for products with ecolabels.
Due to all these amazing benefits we want to extend their reach, hence Clariant is calling for academic and industry partners from the open innovation ecosystem to join us to explore new opportunities with our sugar surfactant technology. By participating in this challenge, the top two finalists will stand a chance to win CHF 10k and 5K respectively. All finalists will be considered for various partnership and funding opportunities, as well as access to our in-house expertise and global markets.
We are looking for disruptive business opportunities based on at least one of the provided Glucamides for application outside of homecare, personal care and crop solution.
