BIOENZYMES CONTINUE TO REVOLUTIONISE INDUSTRIAL CLEANING
In the field of industrial cleaning, the antiquated mantra dictates that the stronger the product smells, the better it works. Using this approach, many companies utilised acrid, chemically driven products that were ineffectual against many strains of bacteria and dangerous to the health of those using the products. However, as Africa (and the world) became ever more conscious of the need for environmentally friendly approaches, the rise of biological cleaners began.
According to John J Coetzee, CEO at Managed Care Economical Solutions (MCES), biological action is always preferable to chemical action, as it is non-caustic, non-corrosive and offers maximum effectiveness in this tough environment. “Yet not all bio-enzymatic products are what they claim to be. Without the right concentration of bacterial specification, featuring multi-strain spores, the products will not degrade organic waste effectively.”
MCES is an established bio-enzyme supplier to the South African industrial cleaning and facilities management market. With a passion for making the world cleaner, greener and smarter, Coetzee has launched a business-to-business programme, which strives to supply biological and detergent enzymes to the cleaning solutions manufacture and formulating business sector. “By doing so, we envision assisting these manufacturers and formulators in developing sustainable cleaning solutions that are both effective and non-polluting. With the adjustment of their existing product formulae, and the addition of bio-enzyme, they can instantly begin developing their own line of green cleaning products.”
The cleaning of hard surfaces soiled with organics is problematic without the addition of biologicals, and grease traps cannot work effectively without these enzymes. MCES develops a series of high bacterial specification, multi-strain, spore based concentrate formulas for onward manufacture of products specifically for the degradation of organic waste, hard surface cleaning agents, grease traps and drain management.
Biological degraders are highly effective, offering proven natural technology. “This reduces the requirement and frequency of mechanical treatment to unblock drains due to grease build-up or degrade organics built up on hard surfaces,” advises Coetzee. “Oils, fats and grease are also partially degraded by the time they reach treatment plants, reducing system overload.”
Coetzee confirms that this approach offers four key benefits to partners. In terms of economic value, the programme empowers manufacturers to increase the sales of their products by meeting a real and growing local demand for sustainable cleaning products. The products’ differentiating value increases participants’ ability to set themselves apart from their chemically focussed competition by demonstrating genuine concern and commitment to sustainable products that are proven safer for people and the environment. With exemplary support from the MCES team, manufacturers are offered customised assistance, while offering a stand-alone line of revolutionary, environmentally sound, health, safe products.
