Blue Competence for Green Cleaning
EUnited Cleaning, the European Cleaning Machines Association, is developing a transparent and reliable assessment scheme for commercial cleaning machines, designed to enable customers to compare different machines based on their resource efficiency.
To be able to evaluate machines adequately, a measurement of cleaning results must first be established. Thus, a working group - WG4 - has been established, to research and define an adequate test method that will measure the cleaning results as well as the consumption of energy, water and detergents.
In co-operation with external partners, WG4 has created a test code which is to be evaluated in an extensive round-robin-test in the first half of 2012.
A labelling scheme has also been designed that will mark machines according to their resource efficiency.
