Electrochemical solutions and water technologies for professional cleaning - Water and Wastewater

Reducing the risk of infection transmission. In a world where high-density living in urban areas is increasing, and healthcare and the spreading of pandemics are among top concerns, the role of the cleaning industry is of great importance, though often underestimated.

Our commitment is to promote technological advancements for better standards of cleanliness, to help reducing the risk of infection transmission within public spaces.

We develop small-scale systems for the on-site production of sodium hypochlorite solutions, an effective sanitizer to be employed on several surfaces, including frequent-hand touch sites.

Different sizes of user-friendly devices, based on electro-chemical technology, generate ready-to-use sanitizing products in different concentrations from simple elements such as water, salt and electricity.

In healthcare settings the importance of cleaning and sanitizing is widely recognized and normally enforced. Yet nosocomial infections still represent a main cause of illnesses with extremely high costs for taxpayers.

Within community environments such as schools, offices, fitness centres, retail, the value of cleanliness is less understood, while contaminated surfaces are a vehicle for the spreading of bacteria and viruses.


Among practical fields of use:

  • Bathroom fixtures
  • Tiles, floors
  • Glass, tables, surfaces in contact with food
  • Non-surgical medical equipment
  • Typical user applications include:
  • Hospitals, clinics
  • Care homes
  • Dental studios
  • Veterinary clinics
  • Schools, canteens
  • Restaurants, hotels
  • Shopping malls
  • Sports & fitness centres


Among key advantages of our sodium hypochlorite solutions are:

  • Effectiveness against viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores;
  • Sanitizing, cleaning and deodorizing properties;
  • Low cost of source materials (water, salt and electricity)
  • No caustic stabilizer contents;
  • Constant production quality, short production cycles;
  • Environmental friendliness (no harmful chemicals, less plastics used, limited packaging and transport costs)

In addition, hygienically cleaner spaces may contribute strongly to the profitability of businesses, connected to a more pleasant user experience and brand reputation, as proven by market researches for example in the fitness sector.
