ACC sustainability leadership award

Clariant has revealed that its low-carbon footprint Glucamide surfactants – its GlucoTain and GlucoPure product ranges - have received an American Chemistry Council (ACC) Sustainability Leadership Award.

The ACC honour recognises Clariant’s sugar-based surfactants for personal care and home care cleaning products, which are demonstrated to perform as effectively as widely-used existing surfactant solutions however with significantly lower emission profiles. The smaller carbon footprint is attributable to the feedstocks used to develop the product and the fewer processing steps needed in the ingredients’ manufacture.

Chris Jahn, ACC President and CEO, said: “The chemical industry is one of the most innovative in the world, continuously helping provide solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges. At a time when climate-conscious companies are seeking to reduce the carbon footprint of the material they use and the processes in the value chain, we applaud Clariant’s efforts towards increased transparency about life cycle impacts and lower emissions in connection with their glucamide offerings, to help support customers’ informed sustainability decision-making. Their contribution to delivering safe chemistry, innovation and transparency can help progress sustainability commitments across the personal care and home care value chains.”

Christian Vang, Global Head of Business Unit Industrial and Consumer Specialties at Clariant, said: “Many consumers are looking for personal care and home cleaning products with milder product formulations that also offer powerful foaming and cleansing properties. By using these glucamides, formulators get precisely this performance assurance plus multifunctionality which means, compared to other surfactants, fewer components such as thickeners and conditioning agents are needed. The glucamides improve material efficiency and contribute a more efficient use of resources, aligning to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of responsible consumption and production.”
