Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 3-4 - Commercial Scale Up / Multiple commercial Applications

Cleaning products are everywhere. We use them to clean our clothes, dishes, windows, and now more than ever our hands to keep us and the people around us safe. But only 3% of products in this $13 billion industry are eco-friendly, which comes at high environmental and societal costs for future generations. On top of that, products that are eco-friendly face performance challenges or safety concerns, leaving us as customers in doubt over which product to buy. Sironix has developed a new technology to turn plants into eco-friendly cleaning ingredients that are performance advantaged and free of hazardous chemicals. By offering bio-based technology to cleaning brands, producers and consumers alike, Sironix aims to reducing the environmental footprint of a huge industry, and allows you to shop a product that fulfills all needs: sustainability, safety and performance.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Eosix® surfactant is 500x more stable in hard water, meaning the products foam well, rinse out, and clean better
  • 100% produced from plant resources rather than petroleum.
  • Competitors are considered to be shipped in a 30% concentration in water, while Sironix surfactant, because of its enhanced stability, is shipped 100% pure
  • Sironix surfactant has an estimated GHG footprint of 2.3 kgCO2e per kg of surfactant, 43% lower on average than other competitors
  • Every metric tonne of Eosix ® saves on average 1.8 metric tonnes of CO2e when replacing traditional surfactants

The Financial Benefits

  • 15% cheaper than current best eco-friendly ingredient because product is shipped 100% water-free
  • 4 year payback period on full-scale production facility
