“Bill Nye is not only an excellent communicator with an extensive history helping nonexperts understand complex scientific concepts, he is a critical thinker with a strong background in the physical nature of our technology,” says Jim Wiese, Activeion CEO. “Activeion has a revolutionary product that we want people to understand and use, and now, the story of our technology will be effectively communicated to the public in a powerful way by this recognized and respected science educator.”
“The promise of the technology is what attracted me to Activeion,” says Bill Nye. “It’s an example of how we can use our scientific knowledge and manufacturing expertise to do more with less—and improve the lives of people everywhere.”
“Benefits from our first product, the Activeion Pro, are dramatic. Its activated water cleaning process can eliminate most general-purpose cleaning products, providing health and safety benefits to custodial staff and building occupants,” says Thomas Denison, Activeion Board Chairman and lead shareholder. “The economic benefits are just as compelling, with payback in as little as three months— welcome news in our current economic climate.”
“Another stunning advantage of the Activeion Pro is environmental,” says
. “Compared to cleaning with traditional chemical detergents, which must be produced, transported and mitigated in the waste stream, the Activeion Pro delivers a greater than 97 percent benefit across seven key indicators tied to environmental sustainability. These are amazing benefits from an amazing technology.” Denison
