Many here in Southern California are familiar with the SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) and the work they do to help improve the quality of the air that we breathe, but did you know they also test cleaning products?
The SCAQMD offers a Clean Air Solvent (CAS) Certification program that tests cleaning products at their laboratory. Using SCAQMD Method 313, products are chemically analyzed to determine if they satisfy the low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) requirement for certification as a Clean Air Solvent. Cleaning products that pass this rigorous testing are assured to promote clean air and produce minimal VOC emissions.
Since California has some of the strictest clean air requirements in the nation, earning CAS certification is quite an achievement. CAS Certified cleaners are safer for employees to work with since they release little or no VOC’s. The strong solvent based cleaners that leave workers feeling light headed and dizzy are no longer necessary. Industrial strength cleaning products such as EcoGen, manufactured in Santa Ana, CA provide the cleaning performance needed for tough jobs, without the toxic fumes and harmful emissions. Businesses, employees and the environment will all benefit by switching to this safer class of cleaners.
