About Rhamnolipid

Rhamnolipid is a type of biosurfactant produced by Pseudomonas and Burkholderia species using renewable raw materials as nutrition. Rhamnolipid belongs to a class of molecules called glycolipids.

Rhamnolipids have been broadly used as components in household and industrial cleaning products, as fungicides and biocides, as a bioremediation agent, as additives in the construction industry, as emulsifying and foaming agents in the cosmetic and food industries, and as antibiotics and adjuvants in pharmaceutics. In the petroleum industries, they have been used both as a cleaner and as an additive in EOR processes.
