The Toucan Eco system launched in March, immediately gained international recognition as a cost effective and ecological way of producing a combined cleaner and disinfectant. /using only tap water and salt, the device uses electrochemical activation (ECA) to produce a highly effective, enviromentally freindly substitute for many commonly used chemicals. The toucan fluid is produced on the spot - saving time and money.
Says the manufacturer's Oliver Weisflog: "Recently a well-known international chemical manufacturer sent a letter to distributors in an attempt to justify a significant price hike stating: '... raw materials are 17% above our forecast and budgeted costs. Crude oil increased by 30%, Hydrocarbon solvents increased by 30%...'
The Toucan Eco system does not use oil based products or solvents and the cost of tap water and salt used in the process are virtually nil. These raw materials are almost universally available in even the poorest areas of the world, making this system one of the most sustainable around.
"The manufacturer goes on to say: '...polymers used in packaging such as caps and bottles and scrubbing agents by 40%. Vegetable and palm based chemicals increased by over 30%. Corrugated packaging has risen 25%...'
"The Toucan Eco system employs a reuse able spray and jug and has no disposable elements; the contents can be transferred to normal trigger sprays which are also reuse able. Interestingly most 'green' products advertised also need conventional packaging and transport. The only packaging the Toucan Eco has is the box it comes in!
"Finally the chemicals manufacture goes on to say: '... A large range of basic chemicals increased by in excess of 25%...' "The Toucan fluid is completely free of expensive chemical elements. It is safe to use and dispose of and the fluid is produced on the spot economically in terms of cost and quantity - and especially good when paired with Microfibre systems." The fluid has a wide range of uses within the cleaning industry, particulary where disinfection is important. Offices, Schools, Health Centres, Leisure Locations, Public transport, Supermarkets, Etc Can ALL beneift from the system. Day cleaning risks are minimised as the fluid is harmless to people but effective against a whole range of bacteria and viruses. The disinfection properties have been verified to EN1276 standard and the cleaner has a mild degreasing affect which is excellent for a wide range of modern surfaces.
Toucan Eco is produced by Centrego in-conjunction with ECA Australasia along with an extensive range of Electro Chemical Activation (ECA) devices. These devices include products such as domestic water ionisers to industrial anolyte disinfection generators.
ECA Technology is now scientifically accepted as being highly effective, cost effective and most of all environmentally sensitive alternative way of producing disinfectants and detergents as a sustainable alternative to traditional chemicals.
