SurfactGreen raises €1.2 m. to develop its surfactants from bioresources

SurfactGreen has completed a fundraising round of 1.2 million € with its investors GO CAPITAL, Fira Nord-Est and Ouest Valorisation.

The proceeds of this round will be used to set a new laboratory as well as produce and market the first surfactants.

These products are synthesized from renewable resources like brown algea and a sugar beet by-product.

These green surfactants aim at substituting some products presently on the market which are partially or totally derived from petrochemistry.

Moreover, they will be biodegradable with a far lower eco-toxicity level, and thus doing away with most toxic labels.

SurfactGreen’s technology is based on 10 patents and more than 14 years of research conducted at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes.
