Course Description
Surfactants play a vital role in many aspects of modern life and are widely used. This six-hour online, accredited training will describe the types of surfactants we use, how they are made and the environmental concerns over their use. It will discuss methods of making surfactants from natural products with a lower environmental impact. Unfortunately, a number of these “more environmentally acceptable” surfactants themselves have sustainability issues. The course will discuss the development of greener surfactants and what the future might hold.
