Consumer preference toward safer, healthier, greener, and more effective cleaning products demands a new age of surfactants and a new vision for how we envision manufacturing, supply chains, resource management, and product safety. As we emerge into a new post-pandemic world, the cleaning products industry has an opportunity to tackle key challenges, one of which is the increasing consumer preference toward 1,4-dioxane-free products. 

In this 60-minute webinar Sironix Renewables CEO Christoph Krumm will explore the path he and his start-up company have taken to develop a new plant-based surfactant, the lessons learned along the way, and the challenges and progress they have had toward scale-up and commercialization.

This webinar is part of ongoing Education & Workforce Development efforts of the RAPID Manufacturing Institute. Live webinars are free to RAPID Members and available to AIChE Members through use of member credits.
