From energy conservation to recycled materials, industries are reinventing themselves to become part of a more sustainable future. The next wave of sustainable innovation? Recaptured carbon. Consumers are now wearing, spraying and washing with products made from recaptured CO2.
- Unilever is releasing a detergent made from recycled carbon emissions. The personal care giant is teaming up with biotech company LanzaTech and green chemical company India Glycols to manufacture the laundry capsules, which hit the Chinese market on April 22. Part of Unilever’s Clean Future Program, the carbon recycling process recaptures industrial emissions and repurposes them into surfactants, a product normally made using fossil fuels.
