With our finite natural resources, it is the fertilizer industry’s responsibility to produce environmentally sustainable solutions. However, trendy words such as green, eco-friendly or sustainable are limited and do not adequately draw boundaries for what is truly safe for the environment.

In this article, Lucas R. Moore, Director of Coating Technologies at Arkema-ArrMaz, tackles these key questions by outlining important criteria to consider and specific tests to perform in order to effectively measure the sustainability of fertilizer coatings.
