Study: Activeion Pro proven effective and sustainable

April 20, 2009
ROGERS, MN — A study coauthored by the University of Tennessee and EcoForm showed that when compared to cleaning with traditional chemical detergents, the Activeion Pro, which transforms tap water into a powerful, general-purpose cleaner that is ideal for use on glass, stainless steel, carpet and natural stone, delivers more than a 97 percent benefit across seven key indicators tied to environmental sustainability, according to a press release.
According to the study, converting to just one Activeion Pro for general-purpose cleaning in commercial applications is equivalent to saving 93 gallons of gasoline and two barrels of oil, and for every two units deployed for cleaning, one metric ton of coal is offset.
The study was conducted by Jack Geibig, director of the Center for Clean Products and Clean Technologies at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and compared and contrasted the Activeion Pro with traditional cleaning detergents across seven key environmental and health categories, including: Energy consumption, ozone production, smog, acids, eutros, particulates and global warming gasses (GWGs), the release stated.
If just 25 percent of all K-12 schools in the United States adopted the Activeion Pro for targeted cleaning, they would collectively save enough energy annually to power 4,600 homes and offset the global warming emissions of 2,180 cars, the release noted.
The Activeion Pro is helping cleaning professionals deliver a safer, greener, more profitable solution for their customers, the release added.
