La Rochette Venizel produces NOVIBOND.

La Rochette Venizel, St. Cloud, France, produces NOVIBOND, a family of biochemical products that can be used as dispersing, emulsifying, complexing or binding agents with various industrial products. The products are obtained from the processing of lignin, a structural component of cellulose fibers contained in wood. The activity of the products’ lignin derivatives slows down and prevents the deposit of insolubles in aqueous suspensions. It also makes it possible to decrease viscosity while maintaining the same concentration of solids and to stabilize liquid/liquid emulsions.
