Looking Ahead, Everyday.

We are continually investing in to the future of clean. We recently completed a state-of–the-art manufacturing plant for the mixing and blending of bacterial strains that are custom formulated for our BioActiveTM Solutions line.  Betco is the only manufacturer who blends their own bacterial strains onsite.

But we didn’t stop there; we designed all our  facilities to help reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing and preserve natural resources.

Below are just a few highlights that we incorporate in all Betco manufacturing plants:

  • Wastewater Pre-treatment – A commitment to ensure that all our water is completely clear before discharging to the treatment plant.
  • Electricity – Incorporation of smart lighting, including LED lights that shut off when the room is not in use.
  • Air Quality – Engineered a dust collection system to improve the air our team members are breathing when fine powders re being used in manufacturing. It also prevents our facility from emitting dust into the environment.
  • Conservation – An advanced piping clean-out system to squeegee out pipes between chemical production runs, saving fresh water and decreases total solids in our wastewater.
  • Recycling – Recycled content in all packaging.  Recycling centers throughout Betco’s plant and programs to encourage all employees to recycle.
  • Renewable Resources – Increasing the use of renewable resources in all of our product packaging.
  • Sustainable Packaging – Betco is changing its outer packaging from bleached white to natural brown. Although this sounds like a minor change, the environmental impact is substantial:
    • 14% reduction in net energy (MM BTUs)
    • 22 % reduction in greenhouse gases
    • 11% reduction in pollutants
    • 14 % reduction in water pollutants
Third-Party Certification
All our sustainable products are either third-party certified or Green Earth certified.

“I love the BioActive Solutions line. In higher education, we have a lot of issues with restrooms smelling like urine, and I have been turning everyone to BioActive Solutions. It does a great job at eliminating odors.”

A Facilities Supervisor from a large Big Ten University confirms, “The Green Earth Peroxide Cleaner allowed us to maintain healthy facilities while being safe, which is pretty much my only goal.”

According to a school system in the Eastern US–there are statewide mandates for green finishes, in fact, states are actually providing funds to switch to green products. Other green finishes were powdery, slippery, expensive, hard to apply, and required a special pad to maintain the floor. Green Earth Prelude Finish and Sealer, however, was simple to apply, required no special maintenance, and retained its shine with heavy foot traffic.
