What is APEO?

Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APEO) is nonylphenol or octylphenol compounds and reacted with ethylene oxide. They are considered to be very toxic for aquatic life and have found its way into food that is consumed by humans.

Health Hazards
The concern about APE is that it is able to interfere with the hormonally controlled processes in the body. Exposure to APE and other endocrine disrupting chemicals is suspected to play a part in various human health problems. Because of the risks to human health, and the growing concern on the effect of endocrine disruption chemical, several nations have taken the step to ban the use of APE in some applications. For example: (A) UK banned the use of APE in domestic detergents in 1976. (B) EU Directive 2003/53/EC banned the dispersive use of nonylphenol and related compounds since 2005.

 

What is VOC?

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) refers to Organic Chemical Compounds which have significant vapor pressures and which can affect the environment and human health. The risk of inhaling VOCs are for short term, and long term health problem.
