Scientific Journal Recognizes ACI Study Among Best Research Papers

August 2, 2013

A study presented by the American Cleaning Institute (ACI) that demonstrated the environmental safety of key detergent ingredients was recognized as one of the top research articles published in 2012 in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, a leading scientific journal.

The research, “Quantifying the anthropogenic fraction of fatty alcohols in a terrestrial environment,” tied for third runner up for the Best Paper Award for 2012  research appearing in the journal.

The paper, which appeared in the June 2012 issue of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, was authored by Dr. Stephen Mudge, Exponent; Dr. Scott Dyer, The Procter & Gamble Company; and Dr. Paul DeLeo, ACI senior director of environmental safety.

“This work utilized state-of-the-art analytical techniques from the exciting field of environmental forensics to demonstrate the impact of human sources of these chemicals, in this case, very little,” said  DeLeo.

The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, the sponsor of the Best Paper Awards, said the awards recognize papers that “exemplify technical innovation and scientific advancement in their field of research.”
