The purpose of this project was to demonstrate state-of-the-art possibilities for producing phosphate-free household laundry detergents of satisfactory environmental and performance characteristics. The work involved formulation of several hundred experimental detergent compositions using different surfactant-builder combinations. These were tested for laundering performance, acceptability of physical form, biodegradability, aquatic toxicity, potential hazard in use, and growth stimulation of algae. (Modified author abstract)
