Green Apple Award for Bio-Productions at Gatwick7th of November 2011
Biological cleaning products specialist Bio-Productions has won a Green Apple Environment Award in partnership with cleaning service provider OCS. The two companies have worked together to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning at Gatwick Airport in the UK.
The introduction of Bio-Productions biological cleaning products at the airport has resulted in better washroom air quality. A reduction in chemical use has led to fewer deliveries and less on-site stock movement, with significant savings in truck miles.
Bio-Productions biological urinal blocks have been introduced in all the washrooms, bringing an annual reduction in water usage of around 100,000 litres per annum as well as energy savings on pumping and moving water to the airport's effluent treatment plant.
The cleaning products are also stored in a smaller area resulting in lower energy consumption.
Adrian Shuker, sustainability director for OCS who provide cleaning services in the airport's public areas, commented: "It has been one of our top priorities to enhance the passenger experience, especially in the washroom, and to add value for the client through environmental efficiencies."
