Ecolab - Cleaning products maker improves several hard surface cleaners

Ecolab, Inc, based in St. Paul, Minnesota, serves businesses in the foodservice, food processing, hospitality, healthcare, industrial, and oil and gas markets. The company's Institutional business unit, which carried out this project, offers products and product/equipment/service support programs to restaurants, hotels, long-term care facilities, schools, commercial buildings, and military facilities. Supported by a demonstration grant from MPCA, the project sought to design hard surface cleaning chemistries and the packaging of those products for enhanced human health, environmental safety, and sustainability while maintaining optimum cleaning performance.
