DuPont presents at Cleaning Product Conference, Baltimore USA

DuPont Industrial Biosciences presented its vision on how enzymes can contribute to more sustainable cleaning. Said Joop van der Laan, Applications and Customer Solutions Lead, "The Improvement Potential of a broad adoptation of low temperature washing is very big."

He continues, "To give just a conservative calculation, should consumers reduce wash temperature from “Warm”, meaning 32°C to “Cold”, meaning 16°C, annual reductions would already be incredible. The annual electricity use of approximately 663,000 single family homes, which is 60% of the population of Baltimore or the resource depletion equivalent of about 11.4 million barrels of oil."
