Foaming technology to replace aerosols?

A low cost, environmentally-friendly foaming technology has been unveiled by Cambridge Consultants.

The technology does not require dissolved or liquefied gases such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Instead, foam is formed with compressed air or nitrogen.

According to Cambridge Consultants, the patent pending system could provide a greener alternative to aluminium aerosol cans and can be produced at half the cost.

Mark Nicmanis, senior technologist at the firm, said: "This latest example of our dispensing solutions expertise also benefits the consumer – the smaller and more consistent air bubbles give a creamier, more luxurious texture and a better sensory experience.

"It also gives us the ability to foam things that are traditionally difficult to foam – like foundation cream or insulating materials."
