Sudoc Named a Top-10 Start-Up to Watch


PITTSBURGH, PA—November 24, 2021—Mold remediation cleaning product producer Sudoc was named one of Chemical & Engineering News’ “10 Start-Ups to Watch” for 2021.

The one-year-old company was recognized specifically by the media outlet for “rolling out cleaning products certified to not cause endocrine disruption” and “aiming to take a healthy slice of the cleaning and environmental-remediation market.” The first-created Sudoc product, a mold-remediation chemistry called Dot (Dilute Oxidation Technology), was created with 39 remediators, according to the article, and it is using their feedback to adjust before commercial release by the end of the year.

The chemistry behind Dot and Sudoc’s other products relies on tetraamido macrocyclic ligand (TAML) catalysts—developed by the company’s scientists at Carnegie Mellon University—which is a process by which molecules mimic oxidative enzymes and then safely decompose. The result is a product that can be used with hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, and other oxidative cleaning products to make them more powerful at lower concentrations, and therefore offers a safer alternative for users, clients, and the environment.

Chemical & Engineering News’ “10 Start-Ups to Watch” series, now in its seventh year, has a record of spotting up and coming companies. Readers from around the world nominate companies, and the media outlet’s staff consider companies they learn about in daily reporting, before choosing the 10 most promising based on “their science and the importance of the problems they are working to solve.”
