What does the abbreviation NTA mean?

NTA is nitrilotriacetic. With NTA water is softened in detergents and cleaners. Since it is classified as harmful at a certain amount used, we do not use NTA in our green efficiency products.

EDTA is ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. It is used in detergents and cleaning agents to soften water. EDTA is poorly biodegradable in sewage treatment plants. It can dissolve toxic heavy metal salts from the sludge is then fed perhaps even into our drinking water. Therefore, we have never used EDTA in our products.

The kitchen hygiene of tomorrow - for clean dishes and a clean environment: This is the mantra and innovation of green efficiency. The renunciation of health and environmentally hazardous raw materials in the kitchen hygiene and sustainable products for efficient cleaning are at the heart of green efficiency - because we think ahead.

How can I ensure that my dishes will actually be disinfected?

Since the thermal disinfection by high wash and rinse temperatures is not always guaranteed, we recommend integral CLEAN CL in combination with our innovative integral COMPACT dispenser. An independent institute has tested the disinfecting effect of integral CLEAN CL and confirmed the latter. The intelligent integral COMPACT dispensers make it possible to monitor all wash cycles without gaps. To ensure that all evidence for quality assurance in the kitchen can be performed easily and quickly. If arbitrarily selected limit values ​​are exceeded or fallen below, an alarm is triggered (depending on the customer visually or audibly). By that, errors or deviations can be detected quickly and monitored at any time.
