ADM helps meet customers’ and consumers’ desires for sustainable products with our bio-based superabsorbent polymers for disposable personal hygiene applications. These products not only offer an environmentally sustainable alternative to petroleum-based materials, but also offer effective absorbency and moisture retention for baby diaper, adult incontinence, feminine hygiene, food packaging and other industrial applications.
ADM’s patented, breakthrough technology using modified starch results in a high-quality, superabsorbent polymer that is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, safe and made from renewable resources. Our bio-based superabsorbents have physical properties similar to those of petroleum-based superabsorbents, and thus, do not require changes in the manufacturing process.
The ADM line of superabsorbents includes the newest generation of bio-based material, BioSAP™, which offers customers the highest level of total absorption, retention, and absorption under load available for bio-based materials.
