Environmental industrial cleaning

The application of the word ‘environmental’ can be liberal and its definition broad. In an industrial cleaning context, the term can refer to products or materials being any one, or all, of the following: biodegradable, non-toxic, non-acid, non-caustic, non-corrosive, non-flammable, non-abrasive, non-hazardous and/or from sustainable sources.
Environmental industrial cleaning can also refer to processes that require no alien substance at all (e.g. foam, detergent etc.), instead relying on water pressure, steam or self-cleaning mechanisms.
For the pure environmentalist, the ideal industrial cleaning process requires hard graft by hand using only natural cleaners (e.g. lemon) and avoiding unnecessary use of electricity and water to conserve the world’s resources
