Ecolab introduces new cleaning formulations for food industry CIP
Ecolab has this week introduced Mip, a product line of 10 new cleaning formulations that deliver maximum cleaning efficacy and optimal environmental performance in the Food and Beverage industries. The new range is intended to completely replace Ecolab's current caustic-based clean-in-place cleaners and will be available throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) during the fourth quarter 2011.
The new formulations cover all CIP applications such as tank, pipe and process equipment. In addition, they meet all REACH requirements and new Chemical Labelling & Packaging (CLP) regulations. These innovative formulations also have a patent-pending composition that optimises environmental performance as they are used within the processing environment.
"Ecolab creates products that deliver the highest cleaning and food safety results, along with optimal sustainability performance," says Andreas Weilinghoff, senior vice president and general manager, Food and Beverage, EMEA.
"The new Mip products set a new benchmark for CIP in terms of optimised use concentrations and performance for these specific applications. The new formulations also demonstrate how we at Ecolab use our expertise in research, development and engineering to enable our customers to achieve their cleaning and sustainability targets."
The product range reduces hard complexing agents, such as EDTA, in most formulations whilst maintaining optimal water hardness compatibility. The formulation changes are anticipated to reduce salt load in effluent by over 30% and yield an estimated 15% carbon footprint improvement in comparison to the existing products.
