Detergents in the environment by Milan J. Schwuger

By Milan J. Schwuger

Deals assurance of the environmental behaviour of detergent ingredients, targeting physiochemical interactions with soil and sediments. this article provides the present country of data on lately brought detergent ingredients, together with zeolites, polycarboxylate compounds, ethylene dinitrilotetraacetic acid (EDTA), and nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA).

12): The MBAS level showed a clear correlation with the water flow. The LAS load is only a very little influenced by the water flow and, thus, varies less around the compensation line. The BiAS load characteristic for nonionic surfactants is also influenced very little by the water flow. This confirms that only the LAS load is of human origin, because surfactant discharge into surface waters has been relatively consistent during recent years. If the MBAS load presents predominantly biogenic surface-active substances to more than 90%, Hellmann calls them pseudosurfactants and there must be a clear correlation with water flow.

To enter the very complex area of surfactants and water protection, it is very useful to show the real correlation between surfactants and detergents and cleaning products usage, waste water, drainage systems, sewage treatment plants, surface waters, and soil as existing today in a country with developed environmental protection (Fig. 4): Surfactants and other ingredients are used to produce detergents and cleaning products. They are used in household as well as in institutional and industrial areas.
