New cleaning chemicals launched

Companies such as BASF and Genencor grabbed the opportunity to introduce their new eco-friendly or sustainable or natural-based cleaning chemicals at the CESIO World Surfactants Congress that I'm attending this week in Paris.

BASF says its new cost-effective detergent surfactant Lutensol M is not subjected to environmental classification because of its eco-friendly properties. The ethoxylate can also be marketed as energy-reducing surfactant because of its high detergent efficiency at low wash temperatures, the company said.

Genencor, meanwhile, said its new protease enzyme Excellase for auto dishwashing detergent, can perform in wide-range dishwashing temperature, as well as in non-phosphate detergents.
