Sustainability

Our solutions are formulated with active components that are biodegradable. Not only do they combine unmatched efficacy with an extraordinary safety profile, but what truly sets them apart from other chemistries — and makes them Deliberately Different® — is their neutral impact on the planet.

Tough on pathogens, gentle on the planet

Virox formulations have a safety profile that, in combination with superior disinfecting efficacy, protects people and animals from pathogens without exposing them to harsh chemicals. Our focus on human and animal safety and environmental sustainability is a legacy Virox will pass on to future generations.

Safety meets efficacy

While powerful disinfectants are easy to formulate, they are often toxic and hazardous, and conversely, many “green” disinfectants typically compromise on performance. Our formulations are unique, with the ideal balance of safety and efficacy. They disinfect against a broad spectrum of pathogens and yet are gentle on users, materials, and the environment.

Go beyond legacy chemistries

Many harsh chemicals come with negative effects on the planet — some we don’t even readily see. Corrosive disinfectants with compatibility issues can greatly reduce the life of a device, surface, or instrument. Not only do these items then need to be replaced at great expense, but they also need to be disposed of — most likely in landfills. Additionally, pouring harsh disinfectants down the sink can create even more dangerous substances that can make their way into the environment. Virox formulations have excellent material compatibility, are formulated with inert ingredients, and require no special disposal. That’s not only good for business, it’s also good for the planet.
