Presentations are invited for a Workshop on the Impact of Household Energy Efficiency Guidelines on the Cleaning and Home Appliance Industries to be held on March 13-14, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee D12 on Soaps and Other Detergents, the symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency Washington in Washington, DC.
ASTM Committee D12 on Soaps and Other Detergents invites presentations for an upcoming workshop: "Impact of Household Energy Efficiency Guidelines on the Cleaning and Home Appliances Industries." The program will be held in Washington, D.C. "ASTM D12 is very happy to bring together key thought leaders to discuss how they are changing their products and test methods as a result of the lower energy and water trends." We are interested in hearing perspectives from government agencies on water and energy guidelines for cleaning appliances, appliance manufacturers on addressing the ongoing trend of lower water/energy usage in household machines, cleaning product formulators on the challenges faced with restrictions on water and temperatures (including foaming, cleaning efficiencies, etc.), and how testing organizations are adjusting to new household cleaning regimes.
The workshop's content is important for manufacturers and designers of washing machines, dishwashers, detergents, fabric care products, cleaning and fabric care technologies, apparel and textiles as well as testing institutes, consumer organizations, government agencies and others.
Additional information about the workshop will be available at a later date.
Interested presenters are requested to send your abstract and author information to Kathleen Stanton, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The language of the symposium will be English.
