Bioactive toilet paper

Environmentally friendly toilet paper that reduces blockages

At Abco, we take environmental responsibility seriously. That’s why we’ve developed a Bioactive Toilet Tissue that helps reduce pipe blockages and unpleasant odours in sewerage lines that is actually good for the environment. The patented Enviroplus Bioactive Tissue Paper consists of BATP technology where five natural microorganisms, safe for personal use and the environment activate when in contact with water. These active enzymes are produced to help the toilet tissue to become biodegradable in pipes and sewerage systems. Industries that can benefit from using Enviroplus Bioactive Toilet Paper include schools, airports, commercial and retail centres, cruise ships and hotels. In particular, one school that has benefited from the use of the Enviroplus Bioactive Toilet Paper Tissue is The International French School of Sydney. With over 1,000 students attending the institution, Greg Sawyer, the facilities manager of the institution approached Abco to find an alternative paper to help the school reduce its frequent number of pipe blockages due to the overuse of its facilities. Previously, using a top-quality 2ply virgin toilet paper, no matter how much the school paid for the paper, they were still having blockage issues regularly. After one year of the implementation of the Enviroplus Bioactive Toilet Tissue...

The Importance of pH in Commercial Cleaning (How to Choose the Right Product & Avoid Costly Mistakes)

Understanding the pH of cleaning products is vitally important in the commercial cleaning industry. Choose the wrong product at home, and you could damage a spot on your carpet, or tarnish a surface, but choose the wrong product while at work, and you could cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damages – and possibly lose your contract. So to avoid any nasty mistakes, let’s take a look at how pH is measured and what you need to know. The suitability of your commercial cleaning products is largely based on their pH levels. You’ve probably seen the coloured acid-alkaline charts like the one above, where the scale goes between 0 and 14, with zero being the most acidic, 14 the most alkaline and 7 being neutral. Now, pH is generally understood to mean the “potential of hydrogen” and is a measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance when dissolved in water. Although pH is a measurement, it differs from temperature measurement, for example, which is measured in degrees, as pH is measured logarithmically. On a logarithmic scale, each number is 10 times more (or less) powerful than the last. For example, the pH of 3 is 10 times...
