SEOUL, South Korea, July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- HepaHope Korea (KOSDAQ 039350) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, VASKA, a Berkeley-based producer of green, botanically-based laundry care products for the commercial, institutional, and consumer markets, has successfully turned the first major commercial laundry plant in the United States (and possibly the world) green! Royal Laundry of South San Francisco is the largest privately owned commercial laundry on the West Coast, washing one million pounds of laundry a week for more than a hundred Northern California hotels using VASKA's green laundry solutions in its three state-of-the-art tunnel systems.
Washing millions of pounds to the high standards of Royal's luxury hotel customers in the San Francisco hospitality industry requires complex chemical formulas that have traditionally contained phosphates, petroleum-based surfactants, and toxic solvents. VASKA has changed the rules of commercial laundry by introducing a plant-based 'herbatergent' that was honored with the EPA's SDSI (Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative) designation and other environmentally responsible biodegradable products that clean as effectively as traditional chemicals without damaging linens in the process. According to Mike McFillin, VASKA'S head of technical sales, "We are competing load for load on price and quality with traditional chemical approaches, and the fact that we are not dumping petroleum-based detergents and solvents into the plant outflow makes a significant contribution to improving local water quality."
HepaHope Korea, Inc. is a Korean-based and listed company engaged in medical research, as well as patenting and commercialization of medical technologies. Dr. Sung-Soo Park, founder and CEO of HepaHope, sees VASKA's progress as a confirmation of the Company's approach to wellness markets, "HepaHope's products and companies promote health and a wholesome lifestyle with better value for the world. VASKA' success in green commercial laundry chemistry demonstrates that sustainable solutions can be financially rewarding as well as socially beneficial. We see a bright future with this strategy."
