Princeton, January 26, 2018 - Solvay will be among the leading companies and top innovators from the global cleaning product supply chain participating in the 2018 ACI (American Cleaning Institute) Annual Meeting & Industry Convention.

The premier business-to-business event is slated for Jan. 29 to Feb. 3, 2018 at the Grande Lakes Orlando Florida Resort and Luxury Hotel in Orlando, Florida.

Aligned with the 2018 convention theme, “Energizing Better Cleaning,” Solvay is positioned to promote its wide and diverse portfolio of performance products for home-cleaning formulations based on an innovative combination of polymers and surfactants. 

Solvay will introduce its partners to new performance enhancers for fabric softeners, auto dish and hard surface disinfection systems.
