Have you heard anything about the Institutional Formula of Cascade also becoming phosphate-free?

I read a post on another forum where someone claimed this to be happening as of now and wondered if it was true?

Procter & Gamble

Is currently, in the process of reformatting Institutional Cascade, due to NY's (and soon to be other states) requirement of Phosphate Free, detergents for Commercial Use. 


The new (Phosphate Free) formulation should be quite similar, to the current formula & performance of Cascade Gel.


That's the Current MSDS sheet, for Institutional Production of Cascade, and thanks to Right to Know Chemical Acts, STPP is listed ;)

Thanks Mich. So it's true then and pretty soon all phosphated Cascade will be gone. Good to know.

Yes :( One truly wishes P&G would use there money, to buy some lobbyists to stop all this crap, but, apparently it's not worth it to them.

So much for "progress" in this country...

Non phosphate detergent for commercial dishmachines

whirlykenmore78's profile picture

I have been using them for a while now.  As much as I was unsure at first the 3 I've used ( Ecolab Solid Fusion,  Ecolab Apex Power and Ecolab Solid Power XL)  work well in dishmachines supplied with softened water and deliver good results.  I have also used Solid Power XL and Apex Power in hard (25 grain) water and found the results to be decent. 


I should hope that If P&G is reworking Institutional Cascade to eliminate phosphates they leave out the enzymes.  These will not work in the high temperatures and very short wash times of commercial dishmachines.

Yet another (Win) for the Commiecrat backed Greenies!

No Wonder I'm an Independent.  The Commiecrats supported this and the Rebigotans were too lazy to stop it.
