Cleaning and sanitizing products and services for the industrial and institutional markets
Disinfectant 1 Wipe and Disinfectant 1 Spray.
Comments: Corporate sales fell 6%. The introduction of Ecolab’s Disinfectant 1 Wipe (EPA Reg. No. 1677-262) and Disinfectant 1 Spray (EPA Reg. No. 1677-263) in late 2020 came at just the right time. This multi-purpose cleaner and disinfectant is created for sensitive healthcare settings to be used as part of a comprehensive environmental hygiene and infection prevention program. Both formats are listed on EPA List N with Emerging Viral Pathogens claims for use during COVID-19 and come with 60 second kill on 44 healthcare-specific organisms, including a 45-second Mycobacterium bovis (TB) claim. Ecolab’s latest consumer media and advertising campaign is designed to drive consumer awareness of the company’s science-backed public health and food safety program, Ecolab Science Certified, and build consumer confidence in returning to the places we love and the moments we’ve missed. The program helps businesses advance cleaner and safer practices during these challenging times, addressing concerns around the COVID-19 virus and other germs.
Now reaching millions of US consumers, the new campaign is centered on Ecolab’s unique ability to take the scientific cleaning expertise we use in healthcare settings to the places where we eat, stay, shop and play.
Last year, Ecolab and Laboratoires Anios, an Ecolab company specializing in solutions for the healthcare sector, inaugurated the expansion of their Luce Letartre Research Center in Sainghin-en-Mélantois, France. The 2,000-square-meter center doubles the site’s research and innovation capacity and will help accelerate the company’s ability to launch innovations for infection prevention in the healthcare sector.
“This Center of Excellence has capacity and capabilities that are unmatched in Europe,” said Chafik Hilal, general manager of Ecolab Europe’s Healthcare division. “This expansion supports our growth ambitions combining the scientific and commercial expertise of Ecolab and Anios to help hospitals erardicate healthcare-acquired-infections (HAIs) and protect public health.”
