Why was it important for TSI to develop a new glucosamine process?
"China produces 90% of the world's glucosamine, and as it costs so much to treat such a vast amount of waste, it has historically been dumped in the environment for over 20 years. You can see the damage, too. In the areas surrounding shellfish glucosamine manufacturers, you can find polluted water, acid fog and corrosion of neighbouring buildings."
Since 2016, the Chinese government has been enforcing stricter environmental protection policies; these policies have been felt across many industries, with some factories having to close because they don't have proper treatment facilities. However, this new focus on the environment is a positive step towards a more sustainable global future.
Mr. Zhou concludes, "With GlucosaGreen being derived from a readily available vegetable source, and manufactured through environmentally-friendly methods, we feel comfortable knowing that our consumers and brand partners are getting a high-quality product without negatively impacting our planet."
