Nouryon announced the launch of Berol® Nexus surfactant, at the 2024 ACI Annual Meeting and Industry Convention held in Orlando, Florida, US. The Company’s latest innovation, designed for the North American cleaning market, is a next-generation, multifunctional hydrotrope.

This unique cosurfactant optimizes performance and activity, offering customers a distinct advantage in various applications. It is particularly beneficial in both household and industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning applications. A specific focus is on low-temperature laundry, highlighting the sustainability advantages this provides.

“We are pleased to offer Berol® Nexus in the North American cleaning market to help customers create superior cleaning solutions for homecare and I&I applications,” stated Suzanne Carroll, Senior Vice President of Home and Personal Care at Nouryon. “Nouryon is dedicated to developing innovative ingredient solutions for our customers that enhance the creation of sustainable and superior formulations across geographies.”

Berol® Nexus surfactant represents the culmination of extensive research and development efforts by Nouryon’s global innovation team. Available in a 70% concentrated aqueous liquid form, it has a low-color and low-viscosity profile that can easily be formulated into a variety of cleaning applications. It also addresses challenging, greasy soils in laundry and auto-dish applications, particularly useful where lower wash temperatures are trending.

"Nouryon is committed to providing top-tier technical service support,” said Brad Pearson, Vice President, Cleaning Goods at Nouryon. “We have invested in enhancing our solution provider capabilities, including advanced testing and increased staffing. Our facilities aid customers in formulating efficient and sustainable solutions using our unique portfolio of chelating agents, biopolymers, antimicrobials, and specialty surfactants, including our new Berol® Nexus surfactant.”
