CONCENTRATE ON THE BENEFITS


The cleaning industry has a reputation for being quite innovative, but it is the translation of these benefits into the B2B commercial sphere where we find some resistance from the end user; despite compelling evidence that using concentrates and chemical dosing systems can immediately deliver real benefits to businesses in many areas.


There are four key reasons to embrace concentrates and chemical dosing:


1. To reduce the amount of packaging waste and to control chemical consumption, thereby improving a business’s environmental profile and reducing its carbon footprint.


2. To ensure the accuracy of disinfectant solutions so that critical food-contact equipment and surfaces are disinfected to meet industry standards; similarly for healthcare and washroom surfaces where there is a potential for cross contamination.


3. To be able to control cleaning costs in a disciplined way rather than rely

on end user free-hand pouring or continued use of expensive and environmentally unsound ready-to- use pre-packed cleaning products.


4. To reduce the risk to users of accidental contact with potentially hazardous chemical products and thereby improve the safety profile of your business.


WASTE REDUCTION &


IMPROVED CARBON FOOTPRINT The use of concentrates for the environmentally conscious business is a key driver in the reduction of plastics waste. At RP Adam, we invest significantly in clients’ business to achieve massive waste reduction targets. A good example would be a large equipment installation project we implemented for a well-known national budget hotel chain comprising more than 500 properties.


One of the key factors in winning the contract was our ability to drastically reduce chemical volume, thereby eliminating 30,000 one litre plastic


In the second part of his series of posts looking at the cleaning chemical sector, Max Adam, Sales and Marketing Director at RP Adam, examines the stand-out benefits of using controlled dispensing systems and chemical concentrates, and poses the question of why more businesses aren’t realising these positives.


bottles and caps going to landfill each year. This was achieved by providing a bottle fill dispenser and a toilet cleaner concentrate to replace the ready-to- use product.


The benefits are clear. Each 2x2lt pack of our Arpax concentrate dilutes to the equivalent of 264x750ml or 400x500ml ready to use bottles. This represents a considerable amount of plastic waste being saved and is one of the main reasons our Arpax range is so popular.


With more than 12,000 Arpax dispensers currently in the marketplace, RP Adam continues to promote this range to the budget conscious purchasing manager with a green heart, both home and abroad.


We also need to consider transportation and carbon footprint. A typical example is the company that promotes their trigger pack hard surface cleaner which contains 99% water. A simple equation follows:


A less active chemical = more bottles of product required = more road miles.
