February 15, 2011
ALBANY, NY — The Cleaning Industry Research Institute International (CIRI) is pleased to announce the release of its second survey designed to help organizers further develop pertinent, topical information for the upcoming Cleaning Science Symposium, according to a press release.
The event will be held at the Georgia Institute of Technology Conference Center in Atlanta, April 27-29, 2011, the release noted.
"The results of this second, more in-depth survey will help us define specific topics to be examined throughout the symposium and allow us to get a better feel for how our industry perceives the science of green cleaning. The event''s interactive format will set the stage for a colorful debate among invited panelists and attendees on the relationship between clean and green," said Dr. Steven Spivak, chairman of the CIRI Science Advisory Council.
According to the release, the program will focus on cleaning efficacy, health and hygiene implications accruing to or absent from green cleaning and the green movement in general.
Panel discussions will cover a number of topics, including how the success of the "green cleaning" concept will be measured, the balance between "green cleaning" and "cleaning for health" and what research is needed as the basis for green labeling and certification, the release stated.
