INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
We gain considerable insight from our customers - the challenges they face and the results they are striving to achieve. This knowledge drives our innovation. The success of our innovation is evaluated by how well our solutions support the goals of our customers.

With our talented team of scientists and our state-of-the-art innovation centers, Ecolab leads the industry in developing new, effective solutions that help customers improve operations and create positive environmental impact.

It is this investment in expertise, research, development and innovation that drives our ability to stay at the forefront of addressing the most pressing and complex business opportunities facing customers and communities.

Diminishing access to clean water is one of the most serious risks facing the world today. And water is integral to many of our customers’ key processes – including cleaning and sanitizing, food processing, boiler and cooling water treatment, influent and wastewater treatment, and oil and gas extraction and processing. That’s why we’re working to help our customers manage water use – and improve water availability for people around the world.

The demand for fresh water is expected to surpass supply by 40 percent within the next two decades – placing urgent pressure on businesses to rethink the way water is managed, for their own good and for the good of their customers and communities. To address these challenges, businesses around the world are setting ambitious water goals; Ecolab helps them achieve those goals.

Ecolab helps customers do more, using less water – improving the heating and cooling, industrial processing, wastewater treatment, and cleaning and sanitizing processes.

Ecolab employs innovative technologies, real-time data and monitoring, water management software tools, services and chemistries to help customers use less water, re-use and recycle water, manage water to increase operational efficiency and reduce cost of operation, treat water to meet environmental discharge standards, treat for health and safety and protect and extend asset life.

Food safety is critical to the reputations of businesses that manufacture, sell or serve foods and beverages – and to the health and well-being of people everywhere. We know the top causes of foodborne illness outbreaks can be eliminated through effective cleaning and sanitizing – and we are committed to ensuring safe food by providing effective products, programs and services that protect people and businesses from the risks of illness-causing pathogens.

Around the world, the demand for energy is growing – and meeting the demand is becoming more difficult. With innovative programs and technologies, we help energy companies extract more energy with fewer resources. And we help all of our customers use less energy – and reduce their environmental footprints – by identifying and treating process-related problems and providing them with products that minimize energy use.

Clean, safe, healthy environments are essential to the health of workers, guests and suppliers – and the reputations of businesses everywhere. That’s why we provide innovative cleaning, laundry and warewashing solutions for restaurants, hotels, schools and many other settings. And in healthcare facilities – where clean environments are critical – our solutions help reduce HAIs and improve patient safety.

We are united by our powerful purpose. By the values that guide us in our work. And by the unlimited resourcefulness that helps us solve our customers’ problems. We Are Ecolab – and together, we make the world a better place.
