Session V: Circular Economy, Sustainability and Retailer Initiatives
>Session Description<
This session will cover the circular economy and the companies who are working towards recyclability, innovation, and more.
Globally consumers are looking to the authorities and industry to reduce the impact that packaging has on the environment. One potential solution is the introduction of in-store refill stations, taking care on safety of consumers, traceability and quality of the product. Consumers bring their own bottles or purchase a bottle that is re-usable and can be refilled with Homecare products again. This could reduce the disposal of single use plastics into the environment.

Greener cleaners: Solutions for plastic waste reduction - advancements in concentrates and sustainable, pH-neutral preservative systems
Disinfectants and cleaners are crucial weapons in the fight against COVID-19, but accelerated use of these products during the pandemic has exacerbated the global problem of plastic pollution. Solutions are urgently needed. Global ingredient provider Corbion offers guidance for the production of concentrated antimicrobial liquid and powder formulations that perform as well as conventional diluted formats. Leveraging this strategy reduces the volume of plastic waste generated while removing water also brings significant savings on transport costs.
Implementing a safe, sustainable preservation solution to increase shelf life in these products also contributes to lowering the amount of plastic and spoiled product discarded. Recommendations from Corbion can help avoid the drawbacks of most current preservative systems, which often cause skin irritation, are synthetic in composition, and/or may only be used at dosage levels too low to be efficacious. Manufacturers can now rely on effective preservative solutions produced using natural processes that also have a milder effect on the skin.

Session VII: Clean Labels, Transparency and Packaging Challenges
>Session Description<
QR codes are able to give consumer additional information about what is in the products they are buying. How can companies work with authorities to accomplish this and have the information on all products?
The future of plastics and packaging will need to be a sustainable one. What can companies do to become more sustainable and keep plastics in the supply chain?
Green solvent for I&I and household hard cleaning solutions
Green cleaning chemicals refer to those chemicals which are made from environmental-friendly ingredients and are safe for human health and the environment. They are made from a renewable resource, and with some exceptions, generally do not contain synthetics. Green chemical-based formulations are already present in the market. The main issue with these chemicals is that though they can clean their performance in comparison with the industrial cleaning chemicals is not very effective. Oxiteno's new green solvent changes the previously mentioned perceptions. It is based on a 100% natural derived raw material, readily biodegradable, and promotes high efficiency. Its lipophilic nature allows a better interaction with oily soil leading to a high performance in cleaning and degreasing, which is especially true for I&I and household hard cleaning applications.

Session VIII: The Future of Sustainable Cleaning Products
Sustainability and versatility coming together in Home Care formulations
Versatility and sustainability go hand in hand with SupraCareTM 780 Additive, a Dow novel technology focused on Home Care formulations.
A multi-purpose bio-based additive for rheology modification of liquid and structuring of solid detergents that can also deliver a boosting in cleaning properties depending on the formulation structure.
Today's trend towards more sustainable formulations translates into a need for biodegradable and bio-sourced materials with good performance properties as well.
One of the approaches to enable more sustainable products relies additives - such as SupraCareTM 780 - that can help to do more with less:  less ingredients usage, same performance at reduced cost and more concentrated formulations apart from adding benefits that can improve consumers’ perception on Home Care products such as improved foam and cleaning.
Angela Sanchez | Senior Technical Service and Development, Home and Personal Care, Dow Chemical
Sustainable technology opens up new ways to clean public and private sewage system.
Critical sewage systems already represent about 10% of the extension in large cities. Due to the growing number of meals made in restaurants, residences, shopping malls, condominiuns all located on the same area, fats from kitchen cleaning become even more discharged and concentrated, obstructing and overflowing the sewage system. The costs and maintenance time are higher and higher, as well as the risks to public health.
Eco Renova introduces to the market a work methodology with the sustainable degreaser Economic Cleaner, that cleans with lower costs, faster, safer and above all, it drastically reduces the frequency of pipe cleaning.
Paulo Schmitt | Executive Director, Eco Renova
