It’s time for biodegradable seed coatings

Our company

DSM-Amulix is a joint venture between Royal DSM, a global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, and Amulix, daughter company of Dynaplak, a developer of starch-based solutions for industrial applications. Amulix is dedicated to the development and production of starch-based solutions for agricultural applications. 

By leveraging the science-based competences and global scale of DSM, and Amulix’s capacity for ground-breaking innovation, we aim to drive the conversion from fossil- to bio-based seed coatings in the agricultural market. Above all, we aim to help the agricultural industry to reduce their dependency on synthetic polymer materials and tackle the issue of microplastic pollution by offering the sustainable alternative.

We are based in Zwolle, the Netherlands, but through DSM we have a global presence. We optimize our value proposition by cooperating with our partners throughout the value chain and around the world.
