Vectair recognised as 'international green world ambassador'

Vectair Systems was honoured as an International Green World Ambassador at a presentation ceremony on Monday 16 November 2015 at the Houses of Parliament.

This recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of its V-Air Solid multi-phasing air freshener with sub-micron technology, which has won an International Green Apple Environment Award. V-Air Solid is classified as VOC exempt and waste-free. It is completely free of any solvents, propellants, HFCs and harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). V-Air Solid contains no batteries. It is designed so that it does not need any external power source such and it doesn't rely on gravity - all it needs to work is natural airflow. The refill is 100% organic and biodegradable and the dispenser is 100% recyclable.

Vectair Systems competed against more than 500 other nominations in the Green Apple Awards. As a result of this success, Vectair is having its winning paper published in the Green Book, an annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by the Green Organisation.

The award judges commented: “Air fresheners in public facilities are products that are more likely noticed when they are not installed, but when used they can have VOC, recycling and waste implications. Vectair is a major global supplier and wanted to improve the sustainability of these products, so it invented a recyclable and biodegradable passively dispersed system that uses no propellants or electricity - yet performs as well as any other system.”

Paul Wonnacott, managing director and president, Vectair Systems, said: “We pride ourselves on being innovators in hygiene and the environment is something that our customers are increasingly becoming aware of. We have therefore invested a lot of time and resources into producing effective 'green' solutions and we are thrilled to have won such a prestigious accolade as the Green Apple Award for V-Air Solid.”
