PathoSans: Electrolyzed Water Cleaning Solution Certified Under Green Seal's GS-37 Standard


Wheaton, Ill. — Dec. 3, 2015 — PathoClean, an electrolyzed water cleaning solution from technology leader PathoSans, has been certified under Green Seal's GS-37 Standard, meeting Green Seal's rigorous Environmental Standard for Cleaning Products for Industrial and Institutional Use, based on reduced human and environmental toxicity and reduced volatile organic compound content.

Green Seal's GS-37 establishes environmental requirements for industrial and institutional general purpose, restroom, glass, and carpet cleaners. It includes criteria to help protect vulnerable populations in institutional settings such as schools, daycare centers, nursing homes, and other facilities, while requiring certified products remove common soils on surfaces effectively, without undesirable side effects.

“We are pleased PathoClean is recognized by Green Seal as one of a select group of cleaning products having GS-37 Certification,” said Jim Swartz, managing director, PathoSans.  “In addition, PathoClean can be made onsite for pennies per gallon and a PathoSans system offers fast payback combined with solid performance while it protects human health and the environment.”

Green Seal determined PathoClean to be non-toxic and free of ingredients causing oral, inhalation, or dermal toxicity, as well as free of asthmagens, skin sensitizers, and heavy metals including, lead, hexavalent chromium, or selenium.

Green Seal also recognized that PathoClean does not contain reproductive toxins, volatile organic compounds, 2-butoxyethanol, alkylphenol ethoxylates, phthalates, and ozone-depleting compounds that contribute to the production of photochemical smog, tropospheric ozone, or poor indoor air quality; and that it is biodegradable, non-toxic to aquatic life, and non-combustible, with no bioaccumulating compounds.

Lastly, Green Seal determined that PathoSans offers training or training materials on the proper use of the product, including step-by-step instructions.

According to Green Seal: “The requirements in the GS-37 standard are based on an assessment of the [overall] environmental, health, or social impacts associated with the products covered in the scope of the standard.”
