Increased safety and performance for crop protection active ingredients 

Crop-protection agrochemicals, commonly referred to as pesticides, are designed to control weed, pest and disease that can negatively impact crop output. Solvay offers a wide range of active ingredients suited for crop protection solutions, with researchers continuously innovating to enable ever-safer and ever-more powerful formulations. 

Our researchers are pioneers in agrochemical formulation design, as exemplified by the development of Soprophor®, an industry-leading standard in dispersion, emulsification and wetting.

Innovation inspired by sustainability also was responsible for guiding the company into its position as a leader in green solvents with the Rhodiasolv®range of safe, eco-friendly and performant formulation solvents.

We continue to advance the practice of sustainable agriculture as a pioneer in the development of ready-to-use, tank-mix adjuvants designed to reduce drift and off-target movement of pesticides.

Solutions for more efficient and eco-friendly crop protection

From green solvents to bioactivators, adjuvants, surfactants and building blocks for crop protection products, Solvay offers the broadest portfolio in the industry.

 

  • Safer and more powerful crop-protection formulations

Soprophor®, an industry leading standard in dispersion, emulsification and wetting.

Geropon® versatile polymeric dispersants for dry and liquid formulations.

Tixosil® silica powders and micropearls for free-flowing additives, active ingredient carriers and anti-settling agents.

 

  • Eco-friendly solutions: an efficient alternative to toxic and regulated solvents 

Rhodiasolv® range offers multiple solutions for solubility, polarity, and active ingredient compatibility. Available also as customized blends. 

Augeo®, a non-toxic solvent made from a renewable source, features a low carbon footprint and high solubilization power.

 

  • Higher performance and better efficiency in herbicide formulations

Solvay also offers solutions that enable higher performance and better efficiency in herbicide formulations. Among bioactivator adjuvants, AgRHO® FKC and Geronol® are safe and eco-friendly alternatives to tallow amines and offer outstanding formulation properties for high load and premix and compatibility with all acid salts.

 

  • Range of tank-mix adjuvants for drift- and deposition-control

Additionally, AgRHO® Starguar™ is a range of tank-mix adjuvants for drift- and deposition-control based on a natural polymer technology that is formulated as a ready-to-use product added directly to the spray tank.

 

  • Tailored building blocks for enhanced pesticide formulations

Finally, tailored building blocks for enhanced pesticide formulations are also available. More specifically, we help the industry with intermediates for active ingredients including fluorinated chemicals, such as Trifluoromethoxylation reagent (TFBO), Trifluoroacetyl chloride (TFAC) and Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA). Our fluorinated chemicals enable better absorption in plant cells and allow for lower dosages, a considerable environmental benefit, along with higher selectivity and stability. Solvay’s MEHQ Molten is another ready-to-use building block that is safe and easy to handle. 

Last but not least, customers can refer to us for phenol-based building block ingredients for 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid manufacturing.
