German Chemical Society

The aim of the GDCh Division of Detergent Chemistry is to offer a forum for interested parties from industry, authorities, universities, institutes and the media to discuss all technological questions about detergents and cleaning agents in an open and constructive way. Particular attention is paid to science-oriented statements on the sustainable benefits for people in their environment.

A special concern of the division is the promotion of young scientists by awarding scholarships and awards (Division Award for special achievements in the field of detergents chemistry, subsidy awards for basic research, and poster prizes).

For its annual symposium, the European Detergents Conference (EDC), the division invites renowned experts from industry and academia, to present their most recent research results in the form of lectures and posters. During the EDC, both the prestigious Division Award and a number of poster prizes are presented.
