This brand new cleaning system is the only fully integrated, carbon neutral cleaning system in Europe. Developed in partnership by Facilicom Cleaning Services and Ethical Nation, the system identifi es, records and manages the carbon footprint of any cleaning programme, delivered at any location.

By capturing emissions data, the C2Zero system drives a

strategic process of carbon management and cleaning best practice, while delivering tangible and signifi cant year-on- year improvements. Most signifi cantly, it places Facilicom as the only cleaning contractor currently providing their service to clients with the guarantee of a zero carbon footprint!

Since its launch in March of last year, Facilicom have rolled out this programme to specifi c key clients and all new contract wins. The company is now on track for 50% portfolio conversion in 2014, launch programmes in three more key European territories, and total UK portfolio conversion in 2015.

The system is unique, ethical and of signifi cant value to environmental initiatives – as well as both our clients’ and our own CSR programmes – and provides true triple- bottom-line sustainability.


A new innovation in the form of the Cold Jet dry ice cleaning and surface preparation equipment, increases productivity.

In the past, manufacturing factories and plants have used chemicals and hand-tools to remove the contaminants from the surface of their products, as well as to clean the equipment during production. These methods were time and labour intensive, and sacrifi ced the quality of the product.

Dry ice cleaning uses recycled CO2 in the form of solid dry

ice particles, which are transported by high-velocity airfl ow to remove contaminants from surfaces. The dry ice particles are accelerated through high-velocity nozzles onto the surface being cleaned, and the combination of the kinetic and thermal gradient effects breaks the bond between the foam and the surface of the item being cleaned. Models include the Cold Jet i3 MicroClean dry ice cleaning machine (which features the patented shaved dry ice technology), and the Cold Jet i3 Ice Press.

Dry ice cleaning is a non-abrasive, non-fl ammable and nonconductive cleaning method. It's environmentally-friendly and contains no secondary contaminants such as solvents or grit media, and allows items to be cleaned in place without time-consuming disassembly. It can be used to remove production residues, release agents, and other contaminants, as well as for many other general cleaning applications.
