Detergents are pollutants I think. I dont know what you mean by "chemical process" of cleaning.

If an answer is still needed, leaning things such as oil and nuclear power plants uses many chemicals. Oil refineries are a great example of this as they go through about 10 chemicals on average to be cleaned.

Even drinking water uses chlorine as a cleaner (although less often), if that chlorine was to somehow leak into the final drinking water it would cause an environmental risk.

1, What happens to the cleaners when they are used -> where do they go?

2, If they are going to go into the enviroment what would you like to happen to them once they get there?
