Life cycle inventories on packages of dishwasing detergent were calculated of the total energy consumption and CO2 emission during the material and package production stage. Additionally the survey was conducted to evaluate consumer's consciousness and activities on refill.
It was concluded that the refill of compact type detergent in larger volume can reduce the most environmental load. Most of consumers recognize that the refill is usuful to reduce the environmental load. But there is no existing refill to be satisfied fully by the consumer.
