For a sustainable future


Steve Courtney, Product Specialist for Toucan Eco at Robert Scott, discusses its uses and benefits, as well as the technology behind it.


Robert Scott is committed to developing cleaning technologies that improve the way we clean. That’s why the company is offering sustainable products that reduce environmental impact by eradicating the need for harmful chemical cleaning agents and their associated plastic waste, as well as improving wellbeing for the end user.


It’s also a reason why the cleaning manufacturer and distributor has invested almost 100 years of its cleaning know-how to champion the Toucan Eco bio-cleaning system and the technology behind it.


An introduction


Toucan Eco is a revolutionary bio-cleaning system that’s non-hazardous, non-toxic and non-allergenic, and has a low day-to-day running cost. The electrochemical activation (ECA) technology behind the product was originally developed in the 1970s and was initially intended to combat the effects of biological warfare. It remained one of the industry’s best-kept secrets until the recent appetite for sustainable and chemical-free cleaning solutions began to grow, bringing ECA technology to a wider market.


With developments in ECA technology, and the demand for more sustainable cleaning methods growing rapidly over


the past few years, new smaller and more portable devices have been designed that allow the product to be used to clean and disinfect in almost any application.


How does it work?


Toucan Eco’s ECA technology requires only two components to create a multipurpose cleaning and disinfectant solution – tap water and table salt. While those two elements alone don’t sound effective, it’s the electrical current that is passed through the solution that gives it its cleansing properties. This process is known as electrochemical activation, whereby a small electrical current is applied to a salt water solution using a specialised electrolysis cell.


This process produces two elements: hypochlorous acid, which is a powerful and safe disinfectant, and sodium hypochlorite, which is an effective cleaning agent. Together, they create a powerful, naturally-occurring disinfectant, cleaner and sanitising solution that destroys the cell membranes of bacteria.


Hypochlorous acid is a safe and naturally occurring disinfectant that can actually be found in our own bodies. When a person comes under attack from invading bacteria and viruses, the immune system responds by sending white blood cells, which produces the same hypochlorous acid to fight infection. This technology is inspired by our very own immune system, meaning it is safe for adults, children and animals to come into contact with.


Is it tested and


proven? ECA technology has undergone stringent testing by EU-accredited independent laboratories and University research departments, showing it is 99.999% effective against all forms of bacteria and microorganisms, including viruses, cysts and protozoa. Plus, it’s proven to effectively wipe out algae and spores in water supplies, surfaces
