Surfactantsform a protective foam layer thatreduces the mechanical effects ofcar-wash brushes. Wetting agentsmake the water softer and allow thecar to pearl up residue-free whiledrying. In addition to the cleaningeffect, environment protection is ofprimary importance to BASF.Todays surfactants arebiodegradable and form foam thateasily disintegrates so that lesswash water is needed.</p><p>Press release from: BASF Group, Germany.

The 15 EU states plusIceland, Norway and Switzerlandhave signed up to the code. TheCommission says that although realprogress has been made, there is stilla long way to go before targets set forend 2001 are met. These are listed.Two of the targets, 10% reduction inper capita consumption of poorlybiodegradable ingredients (PBOs)(kg/per capita); baseline 0.32 kg; andprovision of information toconsumers, were fully met within thefirst years, but the available datasuggests that much remains to bedone in order to reduce consumptionof detergents and packaging. Despitea clear tendency towards lowerconsumption of detergent, the 50%target had still not been met.
