Proven Canadian chemical-free cleaning solution launches in the UK
Green World Innovations, manufacturer of high performance disinfecting and sanitising ozone-based products, has launched the Lotus Pro cleaning solution to the UK market, helping transform the way UK businesses clean.
The system quickly transforms water into aqueous ozone – nature’s cleaner – by simply infusing water with ozone, which the unit can efficiently stabilise for up to 24 hours.
The infused water or aqueous ozone is totally chemical free and serves as a viable alternative to potentially harmful chemical cleaning products. It can be used to effectively and efficiently clean before changing safely back into ordinary water and oxygen, reducing the impact on employees and the environment.
Capable of producing a continuous flow of approximately 14 litres of aqueous ozone per minute – using the equivalent power of just two 40 Watt bulbs – the solution provides a residue-free cleaner that is said to guarantee a longer lasting clean as well as reduced slip hazard on any surface. As well as eliminating pathogens, grime and grease, the solution uses no toxic chemicals which means there are no hazards from splashing, fumes, skin or eye irritation and is safe for sufferers of asthma. It also improves productivity as no rinsing is required as found with many chemical cleaners currently available on the market.
With a successful track record in Canada – where the solution was first launched five years ago, the Lotus Pro is proven to deliver key benefits including the reduction of cleaning costs by up to 50% as well as significantly reducing cleaning times. It is currently being used by a wide range of businesses from government buildings to hotels and shopping centres.
“We are very excited to bring the Lotus Pro technology to the UK market as a proven and powerful chemical free cleaning alternative,” says Martin Booth, Managing Director of Green World Innovations. “Aqueous Ozone technology is not only improving the quality of work for employees but is helping to reduce costs and improve productivity.”
Speaking about the benefits of the system, Melanie Richardson, Head of Vinci Cleaning with responsibility for cleaning operations at the Welsh Assembly sites adds: “The Lotus Pro cleaning solution has given us a safer way to clean and our team have remarked on health improvements since we have changed. There are no residues left and the cleaning properties are as effective as using chemicals.”
The solution has been tested and certified under strict regulatory requirements by the Environmental Production Agency (EPA), the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the US Department of Labor Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA). It has also been tested and recognised as an effective cleaning solution, meeting the Green Seal Environmental Standard (GS-37) for performance as an industrial cleaner, while the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) declared it a more effective and environmentally-friendly alternative to leading quat chemical cleaners.
Green World Innovations is the exclusive partner for Tersano, Canada’s innovator of green cleaning technology. Lotus Pro is currently installed across a wide range of UK businesses including Morgan Stanley, Price Waterhouse Coopers, The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, London Luton Airport, as well as Cameron House Loch Lomond and The Balmoral Edinburgh.
