It is useful to display environmental awareness, agrees Nick Winstone, managing director at Biovate Hygienics: "Biotechnology is powering a new generation of eco-friendly products. Microbes, enzymes and naturallyderived plant extracts can get deep into porous surfaces to quickly break down and feed on grime, dirt and grease.
"This type of product is especially effective at cleaning wood, tiles and grouting and that scourge of weekend revellers, the sticky pub table. Unlike traditional chemical products, biotech-based formulas are made from ustainable, renewable ingredients that slash carbon emissions, are kinder to users, and don't harm aquatic eco-systems.
"Some of the most challenging odours in a catering operation can be combatted with biotechnology - odours from grease traps, pipes, drains, urinals and refuse areas can all be eliminated with bacteria-based products."
