Ecolab's ProTec transport and storage system for liquid detergents has
been awarded the Purus Award at the International Cleaning Management
Services (CMS) tradeshow 2011, held in Berlin, Germany.
The CMS Purus Award honored ProTec in the Packaging Design category for
its design, safety and efficiency — features that significantly improve
the transportation and storage logistics of liquid detergents.
ProTec is a 100-percent closed container for liquid detergents that
includes a 200-litre drum with an integrated drip tray. If the interior
drum leaks, the ProTec container collects the spilled liquid. Thus,
ProTec helps eliminate human exposure to spilled liquids. Integrated
suction lances further reduce exposure to chemicals and machinery.
Complete drum changes can be completed in as little as 30 seconds, and
empty drums are cleaned and re-used by Ecolab, reducing the need for new
plastics to create new drums.
"Ecolab is honored to have the ProTec system again recognized for its
security, reliability and sustainability. This marks the fourth time in
the span of a year that ProTec has garnered an award for its innovative
design," said Thomas W. Schnack, executive vice president, Ecolab
Institutional Division in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The ProTec transport and storage system previously was honored for its
sustainable, state-of-the-art packaging concept. With the Global
Packaging Award, the German Packaging Award and an innovation award at
the Europropre conference in France.
