IEHA and UMass Lowell Recognize Activeion as a High Performance Cleaning Product
Date:4/22/2010

The International Executive Housekeepers Association's (IEHA's) voluntary fee-based program tests green product performance on real-world soils.

Lowell, MA (PRWEB) April 22, 2010 -- The Activeion electrolyzed or activated water sprayer has been recognized by the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UMass Lowell) TURI Lab as a High Performance Cleaning Product (HPCP) under the International Executive Housekeepers Association's (IEHA's) voluntary fee-based program which tests green product performance on real-world soils. Activated water proved to clean as well or better than common chemical-based glass and all-purpose cleaners, and also rated well in several other performance categories. The Activeion test report summary was published in the April 2010 issue of Executive Housekeeping Today.

According to Beth Risinger, CEO and Executive Director of IEHA: "IEHA is now engaged in a product performance-testing program with UMass Lowell's Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) Laboratory to verify and validate the cleaning efficacy of green products; also known as the High Performance Cleaning Product (HPCP) testing program. IEHA will not issue or promote a formal logo for use on products or product packaging since it would be viewed as another form of green product certification. Rather, it will simply promote the value of performance testing and the TURI lab's work, then publish the results of tests (at IEHA's, the client's, and TURI's discretion) to provide solid science-based information to the cleaning industry."

"Manufacturers who want their product performance verified and validated via this program - and to market the test results to current and prospective customers - should contact us immediately, since we expect the list of participants for the remainder of 2010 will fill quickly. A volume discount is available for multi-product tests," Risinger added.

The University has agreed to permit its name and logo to be associated with outcomes of the IEHA High Performance Cleaning Product (HPCP) testing arrangement, with appropriate disclaimers to protect the credibility of the institution, its research associates and IEHA. Disclaimer: Neither the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UMass Lowell), the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) Lab, or IEHA, endorse products. This release is provided solely for information purposes, and does not constitute a product recommendation by either UMass Lowell, TURI or IEHA.

Media Backgrounder: Activeion

Early adoption of the Activeion sprayer - a hand-held, integrated alkaline/acidic activated-water production and delivery system - has been largely fueled by the innovation and "coolness factor", but the technology also has solid performance, sanitizing and "green" credentials, with a growing list of 3rd party research and credible scientists backing claims. The University of Massachusetts Lowell TURI Lab and others have evaluated device performance, concluding that it removes soil as well or better than conventional glass and multi-purpose cleaners, without creating known airborne toxics and chemical-residue byproducts. Independent microbiology tests demonstrate Activeion's pathogen log reduction as equivalent to EPA-registered sanitizers without the liabilities associated with chemical germicides (it now has an EPA Establishment Number as a sanitizing device). Field use has anecdotally - and in some cases systematically - corroborated performance, and product durability (even during drop-testing) seems quite good (the company provides a two-year warranty). Lastly, since the system eliminates the need for many cleaning chemicals and related costs, it provides a Return on Investment (ROI) of less than one year in many cases.
