WASHINGTON — The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has promoted Kathleen Stanton to director of technical and regulatory affairs, according to a press release.
Stanton previously served as associate director of scientific affairs at ACI, the trade association for the U.S. cleaning products industry, the release stated.
According to the release, besides her work on green chemistry, she manages global consortia on high-production volume chemicals, manages research on the environmental effects of major cleaning product ingredients and works closely with the oleochemical industry to promote innovation in new uses of oleochemicals.
"Kathy Stanton is a valuable member of ACI''s scientific team, especially when it comes to her analysis of legislation, government regulations and criteria on green chemistry and cleaning," said Richard Sedlak, ACI''s senior vice president of technical and international affairs.
"It is more important than ever to bring a science-based focus to public policy and rule making, particularly in the area of so-called ''green'' products, which nowadays is fraught with arbitrary and non-scientific criteria. Kathy''s work helps ensure that the cleaning products industry can continue to innovate and bring beneficial products to market," Sedlak added.
