The Answer Company


Entering the 1970s, UOP became involved in several environmental technologies. The introduction of CCR Platforming™ led to lead-free gasoline, and this was followed by the catalytic converter — both removing millions of tons of pollutants from the air every year. UOP also created the basis for biodegradable detergents using linear alkylbenzene (LAB), eliminating the foaming that had become common on rivers and lakes.
