We specialise in the production of tailored biotechnology products
As the wider public and commercial interest in helping the environment continues to grow, there is a growing demand for more environmentally-friendly cleaning products and biological cleaning products in particular– but how many of us truly understand what they are?
Biological cleaning products are generally considered to be products that use good bacteria and the enzymes they produce as cleaning agents. These friendly bacteria can also produce other actives including acids, polymers and other cleaning agents.
How the actual process works in practise, the different dirt sources, such as fats, oils, food debris, body fat and body waste are a good source of food for the bacteria, which once removed and digested produce’s natural enzymes to help them break down the waste, creating its own biofilm to continue to protect and clean for up to 80 hours thanks to residual cleaning. This process can be likened to humans producing saliva to help us breakdown and digest our food.
As a company that has a rich heritage in the use of chemical products, we long ago recognised the value of biological products, which we have used for more than a decade, we are embracing new developments in the field of biotechnology, which now allow us to offer a far broader array of biological products to you from our new innovative Biovation range.
BioVation – Changing the way the world cleans one trigger at a time…
Protecting the Planet through sustainable purchasing.
We have ensured that every care and concern for our planet and its population has been at the forefront of our business launch when designing this range, from “I’m Green” plastics to specialised sector bioactive products that use the most advanced technologies available. Our range of products not only outperform unnatural chemicals products but also protect the users, the planet, the environment and the public.
Technology, innovation and sustainability. Green PE is the result of this combination. After years dedicated to research and development, Braskem’s green ethylene plant was commissioned in September 2010. This marked the beginning of I’m green™ Polyethylene production on a commercial scale, securing the company’s global leadership position in bioplastics. The plant has received an investment of $290 million and has annual production capacity of 200,000 tons of I’m green™ Polyethylene.
I’m green™ Polyethylene is a plastic produced from ethanol sugarcane, a renewable raw material, while the traditional polyethylene uses fossil sourced raw materials such as oil or natural gas. For this reason I’m greenTM Polyethylene captures and fixes CO2 from the atmosphere during its production, helping to reduce greenhouse gases emission.
Also, the care with sustainability is present in the relationship with Braskem ethanol suppliers. Since the planting of sugarcane to the production of ethanol, suppliers must meet the principles of sustainable development present in the “Code of Conduct for Ethanol Suppliers ” developed and implemented by Braskem, which covers aspects such as respect for biodiversity and good environmental practices.
I’m green™ Polyethylene retains the same properties, performance and application versatility of polyethylene from fossil origin – which facilitates immediate use in the plastics production chain. For the same reason, it also can be recycled within the same chain of recycling traditional polyethylene.
I’m green™ Polyethylene is from renewable source to various partners in Brazil and in the world, operating in various industry segments. Since the beginning of its trajectory, Braskem and its partners have been recognised and won awards from prestigious laboratories and institutions due to I’m green™ Polyethylene contribution with the development of the renewable products market, and due to innovation and environmental preservation.
“BioVation is proud to Partner with Considerate Hoteliers”
Considerate Hoteliers specialist team helps hospitality businesses to enhance the viability of their companies, protect the environment and enrich stakeholder relationships. Considerate Hoteliers does this by offering three solutions to hotels, restaurants, venues and destinations, globally: membership, Con-Serve™ and CSR advisory services.
Membership recognises commitment to responsible business practices across all areas of operations. Members benefit from a host of templates and toolkits that can help them to communicate their CSR initiatives. Considerate Hoteliers also has a limited number of supplier members, such as BioVation, that offer to environmentally responsible products and share Considerate Hoteliers values.
The Con-Serve™ data management system, is enabled by a dynamic technology platform that has been tailored to capture data that is material to the hospitality industry, including electricity, heat, water, waste, travel and laundry, which can be correlated to occupancy and food covers. Con-Serve™ can be used across single or multi-site operations. Con-Serve™ users can reduce operating costs, identify inefficiencies and win more RFP’s by providing robust sustainability data.
Advisory services include bespoke workshops, development of CSR strategies, resource management plans, support with environmental reporting and procurement policies Considerate Hoteliers bespoke workshops equip both business leaders and employees with the tools to implement real change and reach important targets.
“Considerate Hoteliers is proud to have BioVation onboard with us a supplier member. Not only will our members and clients be able to improve cleanliness at their properties by switching to natural biological bioactive products instead of harsh chemicals, they can also reduce their carbon footprint and save on associated waste costs.” – Benedetta Cassinelli, Partner/Business Development Director
To replace the planets chemical usage with safe to use biotechnology products, whilst improving the standards and reducing the cost.
