In I&I and in Institutional Cleaning & Sanitation, in particular, cleaning work is tendered in most cases. Especially, if public authorities are responsible for the tender, they increasingly use their purchasing power to choose goods and services certified with the EU Ecolabel. Generally, participation in the tender is only granted to companies with an Ecolabel product line. As a consequence, the I&I detergent manufacturers offer a growing number of product lines that comply with the EU Ecolabel. This year, new criteria for All-Purpose and Sanitary Cleaners are expected to be published and thus coming into force.
We developed several test formulations according to the 5th draft of the new EU Ecolabel criteria for the I&I Cleaners types mentioned below and have in most cases no CLP label.
