Biosciences firm wins major cleaning award


WELSH biosciences firm Genesis Biosciences has won a UK cleaning award.

Genesis won the ‘Contract Innovation’ category at the Cleaning & Support Services Association (CSSA) Awards 2019 for its ‘Evogen Professional’ range which uses beneficial bacteria and eco-benign® chemistry instead of traditional harsh chemicals.

The CSSA Awards, which celebrate excellence across the UK contract cleaning industry, took place on 20 March during the Cleaning Show 2019. The contract innovation award was one of only four categories presented on the day alongside training, environmental and sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

Attending the ceremony at the ExCeL in London was the firm’s Emma Saunders. She said: “It took thousands of manhours and millions of pounds’ investment to develop our eco-benign® technology which in turn led to the creation of this innovative product range.

“Each application specific product surpasses regular chemical solutions in three ways. They offer long term cost savings to customers as they continue to clean after application, they protect assets as they require less abrasive cleaning action, and they provide a duty of care to cleaning staff and building users through the removal of harsh cleaning chemicals.

She said the firm had recently witnessed a surge in demand for its eco-benign products.
