Surfactants are among the most widely produced and used chemicals. During the past decades, these mass chemicals have been produced utilizing nonrenewable resources to a significant extent. The rising demand for sustainable and carbon-neutral products has driven the need to replace petrochemically produced chemicals with biotechnologically produced alternatives based on renewable resources. Among these, microbial rhamnolipid glycolipids are among the most intensively studied class of molecules. Research on rhamnolipids and their applications dates back to over seven decades. An almost overwhelming number of scientific publications present their wide range of possible applications due to their surface-active and environmental properties. This has led to a significant build-up in expectations. The aim of this chapter is to give an answer to the question whether the promise associated with rhamnolipids has come true.
