Priority Issues 

Microbiology, Preservatives White Papers… HCPA published two white papers on preservatives in Happi Magazine during the first quarter of 2017. The group also had a successful introductory meeting with EPA officials to provide an overview of its work and to offer technical resources. This subcommittee is comprised of member companies with a focus on microbiology, formulation and regulation and it is committed to establishing best practices and acceptable standards to address the increasing concern for maintaining the microbiological quality of consumer, household, institutional and industrial products.

Cleaning Trends, Innovation, and Education In September, 2017, 60 formulators, retailers and suppliers gathered in Phoenix, AZ for HCPA’s New Horizons Conference. Every three years, the Cleaning Products Division brings industry leaders from around the world to address the trends within marketing, packaging and regulatory issues that can potentially impact the industry’s future. This year, attendees heard firsthand from Amazon about sustainable packaging and from leading academic researchers on advances in bio-based surfactants and on the European perspective on microbial ‘probiotic’ cleaning.

Green Cleaning… Green Cleaning and its impact on the cleaning industry was the highlight of the division’s Mid-Year Meeting program. The division also hosted a successful Cleaning Fundamentals Webinar series providing instruction on cleaning formulation topics.
