Launch for CMS Purus Innovation Awards

The organisers of the CMS Berlin cleaning exhibition, which takes place from September 19-22, have announced their plans for this year's Purus Awards. They will now become the Purus Innovation Awards.

The new awards programme will recognise 'intelligent products and solutions'. Exhibitors at the exhibiton will be invited to submit entries in six categories - focusing on products, tools and systems that feature excellent usability and an outstanding overall design.

Entries will be invited from March and the deadline for submissions May 19.

There will be six categories:

Large machines: Machines weighing more than 50 kilos which cannot normally be transported by car.

Small machines: Machines weighing up to 50 kilos which can reasonably be transported by car.

Equipment: Any products used for assisting the mobile/manual cleaning process, including small cleaning aids such as gloves, bin liners, cloths etc.

Washroom hygiene: Any products for equipping washrooms, including hand driers / soap dispensers, washroom paper dispensers, fragrance and disinfectant dispensers.

Digital tools and systems: Digital solutions such as management systems and software applications.

Cleaning agents: Agents and products for cleaning and taking care of surfaces, rooms and textiles, as well as for disinfecting and improving air quality.

The entries will be assessed in two stages by a jury of experts who will examine the products' innovative features based on five criteria: 'Functionality, ergonomics and usability', 'Emotive appeal / feel, styling and the example set by the product', 'Eco-friendliness, energy efficiency and raw materials', 'Life cycle costs' and 'Time' (practical performance value).
