Sustainability Considerations for the Hard Surface Wipes Life-Cycle

Wipes have proven their value in providing consumers with convenient methods for cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces. They have become essential solutions for helping to prevent the spread of germs in homes, schools, and the workplace. Unfortunately, these solutions have some trade-offs. Wipes environmental sustainability considerations are different than other cleaning and disinfecting products due to the energy, waste, and water associated with nonwoven production, and product disposal. This talk will discuss a variety of considerations and technology challenges for long-term sustainability improvements in the hard surface wipes category. Presentation Not Available.
