The demands and expectations of our modern society towards chemical products is ever increasing, and formulas based on renewable, non-toxic and biodegradable chemicals are required in detergents. This affects emulsifiers, solvents, dispersants, wetting agents, defoamers, foamers, rheology modifiers, and anticorrosive agents. All the ingredients are expected and checked to be compliant with these new demands. MÜNZING, which is a company over 180 years old, produces and customizes specialty additives for a variety of applications, and new trends and customer requests are considered in the development of new products. In the presentation, concepts like green, biodegradable, and renewable will be discussed, and MÜNZING’s green products will be put into that context without forgetting that performance in hygiene is mandatory. Wetting, dispersing and emulsifying properties in conjunction with good foam control are very important to achieve the desired cleanliness. Foam control is critical for the optimal performance of cleaning systems and to achieve optimal productivity in filling processes with foamy cleaners. Because each system is unique in formulation and performance requirements, multiple defoaming technologies are necessary to satisfy the many needs, and that is especially important when a “green” product is requested. The presentation will provide insight into defoaming technologies and will focus on green defoaming.
