Chelates and the Environment

A global responsibility


The convenience and economic advantages of using Dissolvine® chelates are coupled with their mild environmental profile. Dissolvine® chelates have been used for many years and extensively studied. Almost all of them have a very low toxicity on plants, animals and humans.

Several of our Dissolvine® products are readily biodegradable, with the remaining being inherently biodegradable. Additionally two of our products are mainly based on natural and sustainable resources. The biodegradation of the slower degrading ones can be accelerated when biotreated under slightly alkaline conditions. It has also been found that the metal complexes formed in natural environment are degraded photo-chemically. As with all chemicals, chelating agents should always be used responsibly, meeting the technical needs of the application without unnecessarily affecting the environment.
