GB-BPR, untangling the biocidal maze post-BREXIT

A panel discussion with experts from the chemical manufacturing industry, public health and chemical regulation will review the GB position on biocidal chemical legislation following the UK’s departure from the EU.  These products are essential in every walk of life from ensuring that food can be produced safely without causing food poisoning, keeping our breath fresh, eliminating pests in our gardens and even keeping barnacles off the bottom of boats!.  It is safe to say that without biocidal products our lives would become significantly more complicated and undoubtedly shorter and untangling the maze of legislation in GB is a complex and developing arena.

Home Care – Where is the industry heading?

In this presentation we are going to take a closer look at trends and developments impacting the home care industry. What is driving growth and how is the industry likely to perform over the next five years? Sustainability and the emergence of new products, as well as services and new business models - enabled through advanced technologies - will continue to cause disruption, forcing companies to constantly re-invent themselves and their products if they are to stay relevant in an ever-changing market environment.

Task Forces of Disinfectants, may be an opportunity?

The focus of the BPR is to harmonise the rules on the making the products available on the market, whilst ensuring a high level of protection of both human and animal health and the environment. On the other hand, the BPR improved a lot the workload for companies in order to authorise a BP. In addition, the recent publication of the ED provision and the new guidance on BP families make it even more complicated and costly. How SME can support their products? Task forces may represent a good opportunity to preserve the market.

Boosting cleaning performances with green chelates

Removing hard water ions such as calcium and magnesium is a key part of many industrial and domestic processes that involve the use of water, including automatic dish wash and laundry. if these ions are not removed, insoluble deposit build up, resulting in dirty dishes, carbonate deposits on glass, fabrics greyness and industrial equipment that can become fouled up with scale.

The formulators are always looking for the most innovative and sustainable solution that can combine the best cleaning performances in combination with the best economic results.

The green aminicarboxylates (APCs) such as trisodium methylglycine diacetate (MGDA) and tetrasodium glutamate diacetate (GLDA) are highly effective to control the water hardness and boosting the cleaning performances.

They can be used as drop in replacement phophates (STPP,TKPP and other) and standard chelates. Furthermore, the green APCs outperform other alternative such as citrates gluconates.

Nouryon, as market leading chelating producer, is continuosly investing in research, development and innovation to find more sustainable and cost effective solutions. Nouryon is currently the only company that offer the full range of biodegradable chelating agents with superior ecological and toxilogical profile like MGDA and GLDA under the brand "Dissolvine".
