“It is a great honor to be back at ACI, now with over a year of operation at our unit in Pasadena, Texas, what consolidates our position as the biggest ethoxylator in the Americas and our full coverage of the continent,” said João Parolin Chief Executive Officer of Oxiteno. “The event is an excellent opportunity to showcase solutions, discuss projects and get to know the customers’ challenges in order to develop tailored solutions that fit into their innovation pipeline.”

The company aims to reinforce its position as a solution provider for HPC (Home and Personal care) market based on working in partnership with its customers and its expertise to co-create agile and tailored solutions. Throughout the convention, Oxiteno will showcase its broad portfolio of surfactants for HPC applications that deliver a wide range of benefits such as superior cleaning, cleaning & care, performance boosters, multifunctional solutions, and sustainable choices. “Our motivation is providing innovative products with improved performance not only in the user experience but for the environment as well.”, said Cristiane Canto Global Business Head for Home and Personal Care of Oxiteno.

In addition, the company reiterates the high degree of purity of its products, which is aligned with the recent New York state legislation restricting the presence of 1,4-dioxane in home and personal care cleaning above two parts per million (ppm) by the end of 2022 and above one part per million (ppm) by the end of 2023. “Our Pasadena unit includes best-in-class alkoxylation technology to ensure high-quality products, as well as safety and environmental performance. The facility follows strict compliance to safety and regulatory standards and offers high purity materials, in addition to full-service on-demand customization,” stated Parolin.
