SpillFix Wins Occupational Health & Safety New Product of the Year Award
American Green Ventures, (US) Inc. SpillFix Industrial Organic Absorbent was awarded New Product of the Year recently, by Occupational Health & Safety magazine in the Hazmat Safety category. Winners were recognized at this year’s National Safety Council (NSC) Congress & Expo, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, held September 26 through October 2.
“We are thrilled that SpillFix has been recognized by Occupational Health & Safety magazine as the 2015 New Product of the Year in the Hazmat Safety category,” said David J. Roache, CEO of Galuku Group North America, the parent company of American Green Ventures. “This award validates our belief that SpillFix offers a faster, cleaner, safer and more effective way to clean up hazardous liquid spills than anything else on the market. We encourage those attending the NSC Congress & Expo to stop by our booth to see a short demonstration.”
SpillFix is made from a bi-product of the coconut (coir), which is an organic, renewable resource that is non-carcinogenic, contains no chemicals and is silica free. It instantly absorbs hazardous liquid spills on contact including oils, fuels, solvents, paints and chemicals, enabling faster, cleaner, safer and more effective clean up with minimal downtime. When compared to clay-based absorbents, SpillFix clients need 80 percent less product to clean up spills in less than half the time. SpillFix is dust-free, non-abrasive and there is no after residue often left with heavy sticky clay or absorbent pads. SpillFix can be reused to clean up more than one spill due to its superior absorbency, further adding to its cost savings. SpillFix is also landfill safe, providing lower disposal cost than other absorbent products with no environmental impact.
In its seventh year, the Occupational Health & Safety New Product of the Year award program honors the outstanding product development achievements of health and safety manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve workplace safety.
