Ionator scoops Italian award

The Activeion ionator EXP, the handheld chemical-free cleaning tool that ionises tap water into a powerful, bacteria-killing cleanser that also kills the swine ‘flu virus, has won the Italian AFIDAMP Green Award 2010 for Eco-Design and Innovation for environmental sustainability.

Recently launched in the UK and Europe by Activeion (Europe) GmbH, based in Switzerland, the Activeion ionator EXP is slightly larger than a conventional trigger-spray bottle. It is simply filled with tap water, with no added chemicals. Technology within the ionator temporarily converts the tap water into ionised water which, when sprayed on to surfaces such as glass, stainless steel, laminates, wood, natural stone or marble, breaks down dirt, grease, food residues, and other soil to leave the surface sparkling clean and almost totally free of pathogens. The ionised water reverts to being ordinary tap water after 45 seconds.

AFIDAMP is the Italian association of manufacturers of equipment, machines and products for the professional sector. The Clean Green Award is AFIDAMP’s annual event highlighting companies that have contributed to the cleaning industry with their innovative environmentally beneficial products.

Activeion won the award in the cleaning tool category, shortlisted by a panel of highly-qualified technical experts from the international cleaning industry.

“It is an honour for Activeion technology to be so recognised by such a distinguished panel of experts,” said André G. Krell, general manager of Activeion (Europe) GmbH. “We are proud that our innovative approach to cleaning, our remarkable cost-saving benefits and the ionator’s ability to reduce the use of environmentally damaging chemicals has earned this prestigious award.”
