Detergents and Cleaning
For the last 50 years, the use of enzymes in detergents has been the largest of all enzyme applications. Detergents currently represent by far the largest single market for industrial enzymes. The development of detergent enzymes has mainly focused on enzymes capable of removing stains. Enzymes have been responsible for numerous improvements in wash performance since the 1960s. Enzymes have contributed greatly to improvement in performance of detergents and have also contributed to more environmentally adapted washing and cleaning because enzymes are biodegradable, they can replace harsh chemicals and reduce wash temperature. The benefits of Enzymes in Detergents are better cleaning and stain removal, shorter washing time, lower washing temperature, reduced water and energy consumption, more effective soil release and minimal environment impact.
