Clariant and Eastman announce collaboration on agrochemicals

By Scott Jenkins |

Clariant AG (Muttenz, Switzerland; www.clariant.com), a world leader in specialty chemicals, and Eastman Chemical Co. (Kingsport, Tenn.; www.eastman.com), a global advanced materials and specialty additives company, are proud to announce an exclusive cooperation agreement for the distribution of Eastman’s Tamisolve NxG solvent, an innovative, low-toxicity, and highly effective solvent for the agrochemical industry.

TamiSolve NxG was developed for the global plant protection sector, for use in plant growth regulators, biological control agents, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. Under this exclusive agreement, Clariant will globally market and sell TamiSolve NxG under Clariant’s trade name, “Genagen NBP.”

In a plant protection market governed by rigid regulations and increasing demand on efficiency due to a growing population, crop protection players must develop innovative, efficient, and environmentally-friendlier solutions. Eastman and Clariant’s collaboration is a testament to both companies’ commitment to the industry and these goals. Combining their resources and expertise, the two companies seek to bring Genagen NBP to the forefront of the agrochemical field. The collaboration will deliver significant business benefits to agrochemical formulators and end customers alike, bringing chemical production excellence from Eastman and application and formulation expertise from Clariant.

In recent years, Clariant has made massive strides in the agrochemical market. In addition to expanding its portfolio of crop solutions, in 2017, the company announced its investment in an R&D greenhouse that houses opportunities for real-world crop protection testing and advances in future solutions.

With a lack of effective, low-toxicity crop protection solutions on the market, Genagen NBP is a powerful, best-in-class water miscible solvent with excellent toxicity labeling for agrochemical formulations. The dipolar aprotic solvent works well in a variety of different applications thanks to its excellent solvency power and water miscibility. It is a safer alternative to commonly used dipolar aprotic solvents.
