3D TRASAR technology for cooling water, a U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Award winner, saved customers nearly 93 billion gallons of water worldwide in 2011. The technology combines chemistry, remote services and sophisticated monitoring and control to improve a number of industrial operations. It is being expanded to other uses including boiler water and reverse osmosis membrane treatment, saving even more water and reducing energy use.
DryExx dry conveyor lubricant eliminates the water used in conveyors for glass packaging in beverage, brewing and food processing, reducing water use by as much as 500,000 gallons annually per production line. In a typical five-line plant, DryExx can save more than 2.5 million gallons per year. Dryer plant floors also enhance worker safety. It won Best Product design at the 2011 JustMeans Social Innovation Awards.
Aquanomic laundry system utilizes innovative wash processes and low-temperature chemistry to reduce water and energy consumption by up to 40 percent while providing clean, white and soft results. It received a Minnesota High Tech Association Cleantech Tekne Award, presented to businesses that manufacture environmentally sound solutions that reduce costs, inputs, energy consumption, waste or pollution.
PARETO mixing technology is a patented, engineered system that enhances chemical performance by optimizing the injection of chemical additives into industrial process streams. Initially launched in the papermaking industry, it saved customers more than 2 billion gallons of water and nearly 900 billion BTUs of energy in 2011. It is now expanding rapidly into new industrial applications including waste water treatment.
Apex Conveyor dish machine is designed to reduce water use and
recapture heat, resulting in utility savings of up to 50 percent. The
Apex Conveyor dish machine recycles heat, replenishes the wash-tank
automatically and without interruption, and cleans and thoroughly
de-limes itself automatically using an innovative, patent pending
process. This innovative dish machine received the 2011 Kitchen
Innovation Award from the
BrightWater Technology is a patented nanoparticulate chemistry that increases production from existing oil reservoirs. Recovering up to an additional 5 percent of the original oil in place, this easy to implement and cost-effective technology reduces the need for drilling additional wells and extends the life of current oil reservoirs.
Excelerate ZTF zero trans-fat cleaning program supports food
processors use of healthier zero trans-fat oils. However using these
oils has the unexpected consequence of coating processing equipment and
environmental surfaces with a stubborn residue.
Encompass Environmental Hygiene program provides healthcare facilities with a proven approach to improve the cleanliness of operating rooms and patient rooms, reducing the risk of infections. The process minimizes the amount of water and chemistry used during the cleaning and disinfecting process, reducing water use by 80 percent. The training and education program for operating rooms has received the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) "Seal of Recognition" for meeting the guidelines set forth in AORN's Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices.
COIL-FLO coil cleaning technology deep cleans and disinfects the
coils in building heating and cooling systems. It helped the
