Iberchem cuts ribbon on in-house biodegradability lab

Iberchem has launched an in-house biodegradability testing laboratory as part of its sustainability programme.

Iberchem’s Biodegradability Investigation (IB-BI) is an internal testing laboratory designed to effectively determine the biodegradability of fragrances in accordance with OECD test method guidelines.

Located at Iberchem’s headquarters in Alcantarilla, Spain, IB-BI has been developed through continuous collaboration with parent company Croda, and INCOTEC.

The extensive cooperation has organically formed a network of biodegradability testing laboratories to ensure expert testing methodologies for accurately evaluating the biodegradability of fragrances and fragrance technologies.

As a result, IB-BI has a strong scientific basis and is robust, with methodologies being validated with several reference materials with different compositions and ultimately further aligning Iberchem with Croda’s Land Positive Commitment.

The Spanish company believes the lab increases its ability to meet the global need for environmentally friendly products by ensuring a faster response to customer demands for biodegradable olfactive solutions.

“At Iberchem, we have a dedicated team focused on developing methodologies based on OECD regulations allowing us to carry out testing associated with technology development, including fragrance studies and polymer research for microencapsulation,” said Manuel Serna, New Technologies Scientist at Iberchem.

“IB-BI will allow Iberchem to deliver biodegradable fragrance solutions to customers quicker than ever before. Customers will be able to have the highest levels of confidence in our scientifically validated biodegradability testing, ensuring they can market their final product with certainty,” he added.
