Investigation of the positive and negative consequences associated with the introduction of zero-phosphate detergents into South Africa
Expanded Title:In response to the growing awareness of the role played by phosphate contained in powdered laundry detergents in the eutrophication of water resources, and the apparent failure of the legislated 1 mg/ℓ effluent phosphate concentration standard to control this problem, the WRC identified the need to investigate the positive and negative consequences associated with the introduction of zero-phosphate (zero-PO4) powdered laundry detergents into the South African market. The WRC solicited proposals to conduct such an investigation and subsequently contracted the Institute of Natural Resources (INR).
