AISE – the international Association for Soaps, Detergents and Maintenance Products – is launching a new initiative: Product Resource Efficiency Project for Fabric Conditioners" (PREP-FC). It consists in encouraging detergent manufacturers or brand-owners to compact/concentrate their products in order to ensure the same efficiency with a lesser quantity of chemicals. This change also induces a decrease in the use of packaging and energy, for instance in terms of transport of products.
PREP-FC is targeting liquid fabric conditioners. Companies committing to the project will be requested to lower the recommended dosage of their products in European countries of their choice at or below 35ml/wash. Specific on-pack labels will inform consumers about the concentration. The project is open also to companies that do not manufacture but only place liquid fabric conditioners on the market.
The project should be launched on 1 July 2012 and will last two years. The first year will only be open to commitment by companies in order to allow all companies to make the necessary changes in view of their participation. Products meeting the project's requirements will only be allowed to carry the communication material on shelves as from 1 July 2013.
