A green and sustainable alternative to traditional chelating agents

Sino Lion has recently launched two new products: EvermildTM GLDA-30 (Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate) and EvermildTM MGDA-30 (Trisodium Dicarboxymethyl Alaninate), chelating agents from aminoacids for an interesting, natural and sustainable alternative to traditional chelating agents on the market.

Not only they have a very high natural origin index (99,94% and 57,18% respectively according to standard ISO 16128), but also they are obtained by a green and safe process, without the use of toxic ingredients such as formaldehyde and sodium cyanide: such ingredients are regularly involved in the production process of EDTA and common versions of GLDA and therefore present both in production residues and emissions, and in the final product as impurities.

GLDA and MGDA also boast a good biodegradability and were able to obtain an Ecocert certification for industrial and house cleaning products. Their performances are quite interesting: they show an optimal chelating capacity towards calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and manganese. For calcium carbonate, its bonding capacity is even higher than EDTA’s.

GLDA and MGDA are the perfect choice if you want to develop functional products respecting the environment.
