Henkel Expands Toluca Detergent Factory In Mexico; Improves Sustainability Features

April 21, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Henkel is expanding the capacity of its Toluca detergent manufacturing facility in Mexico. Dubbed Project Xina, the expansion program also aims to reduce the plant's impact on the environment and improve its sustainability features. As part of the expansion, Henkel installed a new heat recovery system to reduce the plant's energy use. The system uses waste heat from a sulfonation plant to preheat the air used in spray-drying of powder detergents. Also, the company installed a two-step reverse osmosis system to reduce wastewater produced during the manufacturing process for detergent, as well as increase the yield of recycled water.
