Energy label ed Ecodesign: le novità per il lavaggio domestico

Tra le principali novità del nuovo regolamento (UE) 2017/ 1369 che istituisce un quadro per la nuova etichettatura energetica e abroga la direttiva 2010/30/UE ci sarà la modifica delle scale di efficienza ener­getica, con il ritorno alla scala d’origine che va dalla A alla G e l’introduzione di un da­tabase per ogni tipologia di prodotto, gesti­to direttamente dalla Commissione Europea. La nuova etichettatura sarà uno stru­mento in grado di mettere in luce le innova­zioni tecnologiche introdotte dall’industria e auspicabilmente continuerà a sostenere lo sviluppo, in ottica di efficienza energetica, del parco prodotti installato. L’introduzione dell’etichetta energetica in­fatti ha supportato, negli ultimi venti anni, la costante diminuzione del consumo ener­getico dei prodotti. Tra prodotti oggetti di revisione, quelli del lavaggio tessuto e stoviglie. Sarà quindi l’occasione per fare un focus sui futuri regolamenti e novità che allo stato attuale sono previste.

Silicones in Homecare: Chemistry, Sustainability, Effects and Consumer Benefits

Silicones are used in Home Care due to their specific chemical effects resulting of their hybrid structure. Their sustainability performance is highly questioned in Europe, the presentation provides a global overview on the legislation and facts about their environmental faith.
The different substitutes provide different effects: easy iron, color protection, fabric stability and shape, faster drying, better and different softness, impregnation and hydrophilicity – formulation possibilities for consumer benefit will be discussed.

Esteri fosforici in applicazioni di detergenza

Esteri fosforici di alcoli o alcoli etossilati si distinguono da altri tensioattivi per la loro grande versatilità. L’accurata selezione della natura del gruppo alchilico ed il rapporto mono/di-estere permettono di ottenere un’ampia  varietà strutturale e di conseguenza un largo spettro di proprietà solubilizzanti, bagnanti, emulsificanti, detergenti e di inibizione della corrosione.

Rispetto ad altri tensioattivi anionici è importante ricordare la loro alta attività (spesso disponibili allo stato liquido come 100% estere fosforico) ottima solubilità e stabilità in formulazione acidi o basici.

Questo seminario si sofferma sulle applicazioni più importanti in ambito di detergenza.

Surfactants and emulsifiers from renewable raw materials

Wheatoleo is a producer of sustainable surfactants derived from renewable resources mainly from European origin at its biorefinery plant located in Pomacle / Champagne, France. An overwiew of the complete range of green surfactants will be presented. The APPYCLEAN technology will be introduced so as the surfactants composing the Appyclean Special and the Appyclean Functional ranges. These products display the required level of foaming, wetting, dispersing, emulsifying, degreasing and cleaning characteristics maintaining a low risk and hazard profile in final formulation. Examples of different homecare and I&I formulations with Appyclean, Appyclean Special and Functional will be presented showing that an optimal cost/performance ratio and low toxicological and environmental risk can be achieved by applying green and sustainable principles of product development and production.

Ready for downsizing? SULFETAL LM HC: our solution to get more with less

Fatty Alcohol Sulfates (FAS) of vegetable origin, are generally recognized as being more eco-friendly surfactants than LAS.

However, one drawback of FAS, that has limited their larger use, is the high difficulty to achieve concentrated solution higher than 30 % active matter.

In a market that is moving more and more towards highly concentrated detergents, the limitation imposed by diluted solution of FAS is even more limiting their use.

Therefore, our strategy has been to look for technical solutions to overcome the current limits, and we have developed a non aqueous solution of MEA FAS at 60% in active matter, which is a greener alternative to the more commonly used MEA-DDB.

This innovative raw material finds its best application in final products in the detergent market such as concentrated aqueous and non-aqueous liquid detergents, which are well accepted from the final consumers both for their limited environmental impact (less plastic used for the packaging, reduced production of CO2), and for their ease of use.

In this work, we experimentally demonstrate that the use of non aqueous MEA FAS allows to obtain highly concentrated detergents without any dangerous exothermical reaction (thus reducing production cycles with energy saving), and with cleaning performances that are significantly better than the ones of formulations with a comparable active matter based on the most traditional MEA-DDB (from petrochemical sources), in different washing conditions. Moreover, MEA FAS is more effective at lower concentration than MEA DDB, thus making its use very cost effective.

Key words: Fatty Alcohol Sulfates, Superconcentrated Laundry Detergents, Sustainability, Energy Saving.

Imminent EU regulatory changes affecting preservatives usage

European regulators have announced new safety thresholds for the popular preservative MIT, scheduled to go into effect by May 2020. These changes will effectively eliminate MIT as a viable option for the preservation of household, industrial and institutional cleaning products, requiring the immediate reformulation of hundreds of products already on the market. Troy has taken a leadership role, having developed innovative preservative solutions that comply with these new regulations while delivering robust protection and low cost-in-use. This talk explain these new regulations and present Troy’s MIT-free alternatives to help formulators act now to prepare for May 2020.
