Eco-benign® is effective, efficient, and environmentally-responsible technologies.
Here’s why if you care about the planet and your profits, you’re ready for eco-benign®.
We create eco-benign® products for a broad range of bio-augmentation, waste degradation and cleaning applications because the traditional harsh chemicals used in these areas damage the environment. Simple as that. The protection of the environment is important to us and it’s important to an awful lot of people too. In a 2017 study by the European Commission, 94% of respondents said that the protection of the environment is important to them personally.
We all need to contribute, and here’s how your business can help by becoming eco-benign®.
What does eco-benign® mean?
Here at Genesis Biosciences we created the phrase eco-benign® to highlight the lack of impact on the environment our products have.
We don’t use harsh chemicals; instead we harness the action of naturally occurring beneficial microbes and readily biodegradable, non-toxic chemistry.
Simply put, our products offer superior, long lasting effectiveness without the harmful chemical formulations of traditional products.
As Green Business of the Year 2019, all of our technologies are developed to work towards a safer, cleaner world.
All of Genesis Biosciences’ technology is eco-benign® by design.
We design all of our products with two key considerations in place. Firstly, the active ingredients must have very high environmental credentials.
All biological components we use are naturally occurring, non-hazardous, class 1 microorganisms. And we always use naturally derived plant extracts for our anti-microbial actives. These are rapidly biodegradable and have a low toxicity, which causes minimal environmental impact.
Secondly the surfactants must be readily biodegradable and have a complete set of data for common indicator species. This ensures accurate classification as the lowest available toxicity to the environment within their category.
We believe in chemistry that works with biology, not against it.
How do eco-benign® products help the environment?
When it comes to our microbial products we use technology that matches our commitment to minimal impact. Here we combine application-specific beneficial bacteria with our eco-benign® chemistry. The result is effective formulas that can benefit ecosystems long after introduction. Fundamentally, our microbial products use beneficial bacteria to overcome bad bacteria, degrade waste materials and clean using natural processes.
Lastly all our packaging is recycled and recyclable. Our products are available in a range of concentrates which can be diluted to your needs locally. This reduces shipping volumes and lowers the carbon footprint involved in delivery.
How going eco-benign® can help your company
We all have a responsibility to look after the future of our planet, yet it’s understandable to put financial concerns before environmental ones. We are businesses after all and we can’t exist without profits. But it doesn’t have to be the case that being environmentally responsible eats into your bottom line.
Far from it.
This is where we can help you and your company. Not only do our microbial and antimicrobial products work effectively without harming the environment, they are cost-effective too over the medium to long-term.
For example the microbial cleaning products of our Evogen Professional range continue to work to prevent re-soiling and odour long after application. Another is the controlled release vapour-phase antimicrobial technology in our Biosan products. This provides long lasting disinfection and odour control, while reducing labour costs without skimping on hygiene or effectiveness.
eco-benign® technology is the future of effective, efficient, responsible and economical cleaning.
Now for the science bit…
Our Evogen products are the result of 35,000 hours of research, over $2.5m in investment and the hard work of our scientists. The knowledge and experience of our microbiologists, biochemists and formulation chemists enable us to create environmentally-responsible chemistries, which leads to innovative cleaning and bioremediation products.
The bedrock of our Evogen products are the Bacillus strains we grow with our state-of-the-art, in-house fermentation equipment. We research, characterise and select application specific Bacillus and combine them with superior eco-benign® cleaning technologies. This allows us to create a range of environmentally responsible solutions as varied as waste water treatments, hard and soft surface cleaning products, and Fats Oils and Grease (FOG) treatment for starters.
What do we look at when selecting raw materials in our eco-benign® products?
To be as safe and environmentally responsible as possible it’s essential that the raw materials we use are readily biodegradable. Not only that but we focus on ‘behaviour in the environment’. So our raw products also must have a low toxicity profile and derive from sustainable sources. Once we’re satisfied they tick all these boxes, only then do we marry them with our application-specific bacillus consortiums to create our products.
Every step of the process at Genesis Biosciences considers the impact on the environment and seeks to reduce and minimise it for us and our customers.
