MOSCOW (MRC) -- Renewable chemicals firm P2 Science (Woodbridge, Connecticut) has begun commercial scales of 24-6, a product case containing 24 bottles of sanitizer and 6 bottles of P2 moisturizer, said Chemweek.
The new P2 moisturizer is formulated around the patented forest-derived, Citropol platform and is designed to mitigate the effects on the skin of frequent handwashing and sanitizer use. The liquid sanitizer is made under an FDA registration.
Any sale or donation of P2 sanitizer is accompanied by P2 skincare products, built around the Citropol proprietary biobased ingredients. Currently the 24-6 is sold only for use by employees of qualified government and nonprofit groups operating in the state of Connecticut. Earnings from sales of the 24-6 will help support the P2 pro-bono work with All Our Kids Inc. (AOK) and other CT nonprofits. P2 is currently supplying AOK with sanitizer to help facilitate safe operation of their childcare facilities.
The Citropol platform is a new class of liquid polymers made from terpenes derived from forest products. The products demonstrate an excellent safety profile and typically impart lubricity, shine, and moisture retention properties in a wide range of skin- and hair-care products.
As MRC informed earlier, an estimated 11 million metric tons (MMt) of plastic waste enter the ocean every year and this will almost triple by 2040, to 29 MMt, if immediate and sustained action is not taken, according to a newly published in-depth report. This is equivalent to dumping 110 lbs (50 kilograms) of plastic on every meter of coastline around the world, it says. However, it is possible to reduce annual flows of plastic into the ocean.
According to MRC's DataScope report, PE imports to Russia dropped in January-June 2020 by 7% year on year to 328,000 tonnes. High density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for the main decrease in imports. At the same time, PP imports into Russia rose in the first six months of 2020 by 21% year on year to 105,300 tonnes. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.
