Chair of the Amsterdam Innovation Award jury Michelle Marshall, also editor of ECJ said: “Once again the jury has been impressed with the high standard of entries for this year’s award, and the considerable work that has gone into preparing each entry.
"Across the various categories we have seen a most interesting mix, a range of products that really demonstrates how much manufacturers are developing solutions that take into account the genuine day-to-day needs of their customers."
She added: "As demonstrated in previous years, the sustainability trend is proving it is very much here to stay and we continue to see new products that use less water, energy and chemicals. Not only that, they have also been manufactured using more environmentally conscious methods and with an eye on the total life cycle impact.
"It is also most encouraging to see the industry taking advantage of latest web-based technology – with the introduction of some highly intelligent solutions that should genuinely assist cleaning operations to be more efficient, productive and streamlined.”
The jury will jointly select the three category winners and one overall winner after a live presentation and demonstration of the 10 nominated products before the exhibition.
Visitors can also participate by nominating their overall winner for the Visitors' Choice Award, which will also be presented on the opening day of ISSA/INTERCLEAN Amsterdam.
