Alkyl phenol ethoxylates. One type of chemical substance used as a surfactant, but most APEOs used in the textile and leather industry are nonylphenolethoxylates (NPEO).
NPEOs are non-ionic surfactants and are used widely in industrial detergents, dispersants and so on.
It has been determined that the continuous use of NPEO, through its release in waste water, has a severe effect on the environment, and eventually on the human body.
