Facilitating the development of important processes that yield increased detersive performance from smaller dosages, this work examines up-to-date and emerging process and chemical technologies used in the formulation of compact powdered detergents. It provides a survey of technological developments fundamental to powder compaction, such as the replacement of traditional phosphate builders and the introduction of insoluble zeolites as particle process aids.
