Ecover will assess the feasibility of using processed agricultural waste in its products. Two different tracks will be pursued. One is on the use of plant waxes extracted from wheat, corn or sugarcane without making use of harmful chemicals. These waxes will be tested for various applications. A second track is on the use of sugars obtained from waste rather than from feed. This will allow for the synthesis of fully biobased surfactants without making use of food grade material.
