Wheatoleo is a producer of sustainable surfactants derived from renewable resources, mainly from European origin at its
biorefinery plant located in Pomacle (Champagne), France. An overview of the complete range of green surfactants is presented
and the APPYCLEAN technology is introduced. These products display the required level of foaming, wetting, dispersing,
emulsifying, degreasing and cleaning characteristics maintaining a low risk and hazard profile in final formulations. Examples
of different homecare and I&I formulations with Appyclean, Appyclean Special and Functional shows that an optimal cost/performance
ratio and low toxicological and environmental risk can be achieved by applying green and sustainable principles of
product development and production.
