Lankem are particularly proud of the BioLoops, a line of biobased surfactants developed using novel biobased technologies for sustainable products from renewable sources with comparable performance to synthetic products​​. They offer a variety of anionic surfactants with applications in emulsification, solubilisation, wetting, detergency, dispersion, and foaming​​. Nonionic surfactants, which carry no electrical charge, are also available, used for their emulsification, solubilisation, wetting, dispersion, detergency, foaming, and defoaming properties​​. Amphoteric and cationic surfactants are also part of their range, useful for applications like foaming, solubilisation, and antistatic properties​​.
