    Rhamnolipid introduction

    Rhamnolipid possesses diverse functionalities, including surface tension reduction, solubilization, emulsification, demulsification, defoaming, washing, dispersing, flocculating, penetrating, and moistening capabilities. It exhibits remarkable surface activity, demands minimal dosage, and demonstrates exceptional compatibility with other surfactants. It possesses remarkable chemical and biological properties, exhibiting both hydrophilic and lipophilic characteristics. This unique biosurfactant effectively reduces surface tension in water, making it a versatile wetting agent, emulsifier, and foaming agent. Rhamnolipid is resistant to high temperatures and high salts, has strong foaming ability, is non-toxic, biodegradable, and is an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative product.


    Compared to traditional chemically synthesized surfactants, Rhamnolipid has the following notable characteristics and advantages:


    • The extensive and intricate chemical structure of rhamnolipids, enriched with numerous active groups, enables superior adsorption at the oil-water interface. Consequently, it effectively diminishes the interfacial tension at both the water-air and oil-water interfaces, resulting in a more favorable environment for various applications.
    • Heat resistance: retains surface activity even at 90℃.
    • Salt tolerance:Rhamnolipids remain stable in 10% salt solution, while chemically synthesized surfactants lose activity in 2-3% salt solution.
    • Biodegradability:Rhamnolipids are easily degraded in water or soil.
    • Low or non-toxic: Environmentally friendly.

    Rhamnolipid Application:Rhamnolipid finds diverse applications in the petroleum, environmental, and agrochemical industries, boasting natural origin, safe usage, environmental friendliness, and no residual effects. In the petroleum sector, it can be employed for tertiary oil recovery, sludge treatment, and oilfield blockage relief. In the environmental realm, it is suitable for soil remediation and wastewater treatment. Furthermore, as a novel biological additive, it is utilized in fertilizers and functional agricultural products, encompassing applications across the agricultural spectrum, including seed cultivation, pesticide and fertilizer additives, soil amelioration, fertilizer efficiency enhancement, plant protection, fishpond water purification, and feed additives.



    Rhamnolipid Applications in the Petroleum Industry: Rhamnolipids find numerous applications in the petroleum industry, enhancing oil recovery, mitigating pipeline resistance, and reducing crude oil viscosity. They optimize oil displacement systems, clean tank bottom sludge, prevent wax formation, and improve lubricant performance. Their natural, bio-based surfactant properties position them as an environmentally friendly and sustainable choice, significantly impacting the efficiency and environmental footprint of the petroleum industry. From enhanced oil recovery to drag and viscosity reduction in crude oil pipelines, rhamnolipids are used as anti-wax additives, tank bottom sludge cleaners, and viscosity index improvers.


    Rhamnolipid Applications in Agriculture: Rhamnolipid exhibits extensive application prospects in agricultural production, playing a crucial role in promoting crop growth, improving fertilizer and pesticide utilization, controlling plant diseases, and soil improvement. Compared to chemical surfactants, it exhibits better wetting and surface activity, with significant inhibitory effects on fungi and waterborne pathogenic bacteria. Moreover, Rhamnolipid-modified biochar can improve saline-alkali soil, enhancing plant adaptability and growth performance.


    Rhamnolipid Applications in Ecology and Environment: Rhamnolipid can be utilized to address environmental issues such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (released in incidents like the Gulf of Mexico oil spill), difficult-to-biodegrade COD, and heavy metal pollution. It exhibits environmental remediation capabilities, effectively removing oil, metals, or other pollutants from soil, water bodies, coastlines, and the seabed.
