Environmental Commitment

Environmental Impact of Enviro-Tech Systems Products

We recognise our business has an important role to play in protecting and enhancing the environment for future generations and in helping the long term sustainability of our planet.

The products and their related formulations manufactured for Enviro-Tech Systems are produced using environmentally acceptable components and must be used according to the manufacturer’s directions. Care should be taken to avoid overuse or excessive concentrations. Levels associated with normal periodic cleaning should have no detrimental effect on the environmental microbial population.

Biodegradability is generally accepted as the ability for chemicals to be broken down by a natural process into more basic components. All chemicals are biodegradable but the rate and extent of breakdown is widely variable. Ideally a material should biodegrade to water and carbon within twenty eight days.

Global environmental awareness is growing and many suppliers attach labels such as “environmentally friendly” or “environmentally acceptable” to their product ranges, often with little or no justification. The terms themselves are open to misinterpretation and as far as we are aware, there is no universally recognised definition of either term. Enviro-Tech Systems uses the term “environmentally acceptable” to describe a wide range of initiatives within the Company limiting the impact of its products on the environment. In essence these initiatives involving maximising the use of raw materials which biodegrade rapidly and completely to substances which are compatible with the environment.

All chemicals used in formulations are thoroughly researched by reputable multinational Chemical Companies before launching a new product.
