MINNEAPOLIS — Tennant Company proudly announced that its ec-H2O™ technology has been selected by Sustainable Industries magazine as one of its 2009 Top 10 Green Building Products winners, according to a press release.
According to the release, Sustainable Industries’ Top 10 Green Building Products guide is an annual publication profiling industry-leading green building products selected by a panel of expert judges and the Sustainable Industries editorial team.
