Adjuvants & Formulations

Bimonthly newsletter for agchem specialists (former Adjuvant Newsletter)


July / August 2017

The footprint of formulations
How green is a green adjuvant? And what about the sustainability of different agchem formulations? Adjuvants & Formulations reports on the efforts of companies to capture the greenness and footprint of adjuvants and formulations in hard figures and how they communicate this. “Everybody sings his own song” seems appropriate.

Patents in brief
Asian formulators seek patent protection for ZC formulations of herbicidal actives that are incompatible. Adjuvants & Formulations also reports about the ongoing search for improved gibberellin formulations, about defoamers for high electrolyte compositions, latex binders for improved rainfastness, a solvent to reduce prothioconazole-desthio formation and about stabilised terpene EC formulations.

EAA-Innovations 2018
EAA-Innovations 2018 is the European follow-up on the two successful Future of Adjuvants symposia, organised by SURfaPLUS in Amsterdam (2011 and 2015). EAA-Innovations is organised by SURfaPLUS in close collaboration with the adjuvant industry. This meeting is primarily focused on new developments/trends in the technology and science of adjuvants and formulations. Registration will be open from 14 September. Then we will also announce how you can book hotel rooms in the Dorint for reduced tariffs. More online.
