Council for LAB/LAS Environmental Research Publishes THE CLER REVIEW, Volume 13
Journal Provides Snapshot of Broad Scientific Research on Leading Worldwide Cleaning Agent
WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 3, 2013)—The Council for LAB/LAS Environmental Research (CLER) has released Volume 13 of its technical journal, The CLER Review.
CLER is an organization of scientists and technical specialists dedicated to research on the environmental safety of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS), a surfactant that is the leading cleaning agent in laundry detergent and cleaning products worldwide. The CLER Review serves as a compilation of that research.
“The studies in this issue provide a remarkable snapshot of the breadth of the environmental research on LAS,” said Dr. John Heinze, CLER’s technical director and editor of the journal.
In addition to a summary by Dr. Heinze, Volume 13 of The CLER Review includes six academic papers representing practically every aspect of environmental science on LAS, including test methods; biodegradation testing; environmental monitoring; risk assessment; and public policy.
CLER representatives will present The CLER Review at the Ninth World Surfactant Congress and Business Convention in Barcelona, Spain, this June. The conference is spearheaded by the European Committee on Organic Surfactants and their Intermediates (CESIO).

The Council for LAB/LAS Environmental Research (CLER) is an organization of scientists and technical specialists representing manufacturers of linear alkylbenzene (LAB) and linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS). CLER’s mission is to conduct research and distribute scientific information on the environmental safety of LAS, the world’s number one cleaning ingredient, and LAB, the material from which it is produced.
