AMSTERDAM — Nouryon has received the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) 2022 Sustainability Leadership Award in the category of Product Safety, Innovation and Transparency for its Agrilan® 1015 biodegradable dispersant. The multipurpose, non-persistent biodegradable dispersant is used for aqueous crop protection and seed-treatment applications to help active ingredients dissolve more easily and enhance the sustainability profile of formulations.

The ACC’s Sustainability Leadership Awards honor member companies for their achievements and contributions to sustainability. The Product Safety, Innovation & Transparency category recognizes products, processes or initiatives that promote safe use of chemicals, transparency, informed sustainability decision-making and innovation to reduce risk.

“We are pleased Agrilan® 1015 has been recognized for the value it delivers to growers around the world that need more sustainable formulations to protect their crops,” said Larry Ryan, Nouryon Executive Vice President and President, Performance Formulations and the Americas. “Regulations play an important role in agrochemical formulation design and we are focused on delivering crop protection and nutrition solutions that meet the challenges of tomorrow.”

The ACC convened a judging panel made up of external sustainability leaders from the academia, nonprofit and consulting sectors to review and select the award winners. The judging panel chose winning initiatives based on a range of factors, including the level of innovation the initiative demonstrated, the scope and reach of its impacts, and the extent to which it addresses priorities outlined in ACC’s Sustainability Principles and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
