Ecolab launches Disinfectant 1 Wipe, first EPA-registered 100% plastic-free degradable wipe

SAINT PAUL, MN , July 2, 2024-

Every year, Ecolab solutions help clean 15 million patient rooms and 3.5 billion surgical instruments. To help healthcare providers deliver a clean and safe environment, we provide a range of programs and solutions to help clean and disinfect hospitals and healthcare facilities. Today, we are excited to announce the launch of the newest addition to our suite of offerings: the Disinfectant 1 Wipe, the first EPA registered 100% plastic-free1, readily degradable, 1-minute hospital disinfection wipe derived 100% from wood pulp fibers.2

The new product supports healthcare facilities looking to help improve patient safety and achieve their sustainability goals. The development comes from an urgent need to address the environmental impact of traditional single use plastic-based disinfectant wipes, which currently dominate the North American market and take hundreds of years to degrade once discarded.
