Surtec Certified GREEN products are designed with the U.S. EPA’s Environmentally Preferred Purchasing (EPP) principles in mind and meet or exceed current accepted certification criteria as environmentally safe GREEN products. Surtec Certified GREEN products are designed to meet the environmental requirements of “Green Seal” and “EPA’s Designed for the Environment" and were developed to exceed all of their performance requirements.

Design
SurtecCertified GREEN Products are proprietary formulas developed by Surtec graduate chemists, who consider universally accepted principles of GREEN standards set by independent organizations and government agencies and to meet the following requirements:

  • Readily biodegradable
  • Low VOC to meet strict requirements of CA Air Resources Board and Ozone Transport Commission
  • No ozone depleting substances
  • No heavy metals, such as zinc
  • Low potential for skin and eye corrosiveness and irritation
  • No 2-butoxyethanol (Butyl) or APEs (alkylphenol ethoxylates)
  • No carcinogens, reproductive or development toxins
  • Less than 0.5% phosphate
Raw Material Acquisition
  • Surtec’s Research and Development Department actively seeks raw material suppliers that promote GREEN chemistry, considers only products that meet a GREEN profile and uses all available research tools to find and acquire GREEN materials.
     
  • Surtec raw materials are selected to create the minimum negative impact on the environment while consistently producing superior results.
     
  • Surtec purchases materials in bulk to minimize solid waste from containers and makes all attempts to acquire raw materials from local sources to reduce the environmental impact of ground transportation.
Manufacture
  • All chemical products are manufactured in Surtec’s “state-of-the-art” facility utilizing the latest principles in recycling and maximum waste minimization standards and procedures.

Packaging and Distribution
  • Surtec containers are 100% recyclable.

  • Only Surtec ships all chemicals with current copyrighted MSDS labels on the containers, so no matter where products go, they always have a current MSDS.
Use
  • Surtec factory trained representatives provide “hands on” training in the safe, proper use of these products to achieve optimum results with a minimum of waste.
     
  • Surtec offers equipment for complete dilution control of products, including dilution despensers, mobile blend carts and our new Porta-Blend dispensers to insure that SurtecCertified GREEN products are used at the proper dilution.
     
  • To complement the Surtec Certified GREEN chemical products and to improve indoor air quality and reduce labor, Surtec also manufactures or offers unique and patented vacuuming technology for propane burnishing of polished floors, a vacuum pre-sweep attachment for automatic scrubbers, CRI approved vacuums, HEPA filter vacuums and a wide selection of micro-fiber wet mops, dust mops, wipes and tools.
Disposal
  • All of the SurtecCertified GREEN products are biodegradable, low in VOC’s, and are packaged in recyclable containers.
