We want the hospitality industry to look further than just “trying green” and embrace a whole new philosophy associated with the terminology of eco solutions and environmental responsibility. In order to achieve that Envirolyte anolyte is used for a variety of applications in hotels to provide clean and microbial-free water, environments and facilities.
The anolyte biocide can be used in hot and cold water, open or closed systems. It is a highly efficient, versatile and cost effective way to maintain health and hygiene standards throughout a hotel and in a way which is demonstrably environmentally sensitive.
What is this new philosophy?
The ability of the hospitality industry to adapt to innovative end-to-end, environmentally friendly solutions that enable the complete facility to diminish the use of harmful chemicals across all applications, from water treatment to in-house cleaning, without increasing costs or changing process design.
By “end-to-end” we mean applications across the whole facility, from the treatment of incoming potable drinking water and the expelled waste effluent water, to chemical-free solutions in housekeeping, kitchens, restaurants, conference centers, laundry, swimming pools and change rooms. In the past hotels saw fit to market the fact that they were being environmentally conscious by just changing a few token products or processes and procedures. One of the primary reasons why this change merely scratched the surface is because “going green” is not a cheap exercise. Environmentally friendly products or solutions are often extremely expensive, and if the cost is not passed on to the consumer, hotel groups experience too much pressure on the bottom line. In simple terms “going green” is not affordable, and therefore companies skimp on complete solutions. By combining the powerful forces of science and nature, Envirolyte has managed to provide a complete, environmentally friendly solution which replaces multiple products and applications on site.
How is that possible?
The Envirolyte solution is the result of advanced engineering which produces two unequalled products developed from the electrolysis of water and salt on your facility site. Envirolyte systems splits water and activates the solutions into an oxidant stream for disinfecting and sanitizing applications (anolyte), whilst the antioxidant stream is used for cleaning and degreasing in housekeeping and laundry (catholyte/degreaser). These products can replace up to 80% of the existing chemicals purchased for operation of the whole hospitality facility. Due to the product’s water concentration there is no detergent residue left behind on surfaces, as we have seen with old chemicals in the past. Residue is a breeding ground for dirt and germs.
The product is made up of 99,69% water. It can be ingested or dispersed into the environment, has no harmful effects on humans or the earth, and yet still acts as a world-leading virus and bacteria killer.
Areas of application
Staff typically needs to transport at least seven or eight chemicals and various tools to each unit. Since the introduction of the Envirolyte solutions this has been reduced to three easy-to-carry products, along with the latest in advanced cleaning hardware.
Disinfection of any incoming potable and outgoing effluent water without the use of harmful chemicals.
In-house laundry can also make use of Envirolyte products to replace several chemicals, like dangerous stain-removal and bleaching products. Staff no longer needs to be exposed to these hazardous substances. Envirolyte also compliments existing washing powders to reduce volume and cost.
Kitchens / Food preparation
Envirolyte products can be used for complete general degreasing and provide a high care level of sterilizing all surfaces, appliances and hands. Envirolyte has food-safe accreditation, and is even used on food to improve the shelf life and freshness of produce ranging from meats to vegetables and fruit. The degreaser can be added to natural oil-based products to produce a heavy-duty degreasing solution.
