The basis to found Lipoid in 1977 was to replace chemical products with natural products as this has always been ecologically sound.
Replacing chemical products with natural products allows us to:
Lecithin and phospholipids from Lipoid are
Our aim is to conduct all production processes to have low energy consumption and to avoid environmental pollution by recycling and reuse of solvents.
Some of our products are synthesized due to our customers’ demands. Hereby, when possible, we use natural substances as starting material; we use solvents sparingly and predominantly non-toxic solvents which are recycled and reused.
Environmental protection and sustainability has been our ultimate ambition since the beginning.
The principles of cost effectiveness and sustainability determine our strategy within all phases of the value chain.
Lipoid’s production processes are based on the 12 principles of Green Chemistry published by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
