Wiesentheid/Germany – The raw material base is domestic, renewable and produced in cooperation with farmers who live in the immediate vicinity of the company´s production site in Wiesentheid.

The applied biotechnological process of Dako is new and an in-house development. It eliminates all environmentally relevant disadvantages of conventional manufacturing processes, such as hot steam, extensive bleaching or metal catalysts. The results are products of high purity that are free of catalyst residues and therefore having a high hydrolytic as well as a high oxidation stability.
