IPC win in Pulire award6th of June 2011
This year's Pulire Innovation Award - presented during the recent Verona exhibition - has gone to IPC for its Green Tube pure water cleaning system.

The Clean Green Afidamp Award was also presented during the show, organised by the Italian cleaning association. This prize recognises new cleaning technologies that reflect sustainable and 'green' values while maintaining effectiveness and practicality.
In the Equipment category the winner was Vileda Professional for its Evolon 100 per cent microfibre cloths. Ar-Co Chimica won the Chemicals category, again for its Gynius Ecolabel - which the judges said puts environmental impact at the core of the system.
Kärcher was awarded the Machinery prize for its T12/1 eco!efficiency vacuum cleaner, which boasts low energy consumption while maintaining high performance.

Said Michele Redi, president of AfidampFAB: "The goal of this competition is to reward the ability to do business while encouraging the development of strategies to reduce waste gas emissions and the use of nonrenewable resources. The number of candidates this year confirms that attention to these issues is becoming increasingly high."
