Green Seal Inc. has certified more than 100 industrial cleaning products under its newly revised environmental standard.
After 18 months of development, the 2009 version of the Environmental Standard for Industrial and Institutional Cleaners (GS-37) is the nation''s most rigorous standard for industrial cleaners.
The new standard reflects advances in cleaning technology, toxicology, health sciences and greater awareness of the impact of cleaning products on conditions such as asthma.
And, research shows that cleaning products certified under GS-37 have 80 percent less environmental impact than conventional cleaners.
Some products listed at www.greenseal.org that were certified under earlier editions of GS-37 are still in the process of being reevaluated under the new standard.
Meanwhile, these products are in good standing based on their previous certification.
Products certified under previous editions whose certifications were terminated are no longer listed on Green Seal''s website.
