ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 22, 2018--Delivering both performance and sustainability, Ecolab’s new Aquanomic™ 2.0 Low-Temp Solid Laundry Program utilizes advanced analytics and solids chemistry to enhance whiteness, extend linen life, reduce costs and improve hotel guest satisfaction.

“Guest expectations are rising while laundry operation costs are increasing,” said Ann Mamer Lloyd, senior vice president of Marketing for Ecolab’s Global Institutional business. “Labor, linen replacement and significant water and energy use are all factors. The Aquanomic 2.0 Low-Temp Solids Laundry Program is designed to deliver the best results while ensuring laundry operations are running at the highest levels of efficiency.”

The program’s advanced chemistry effectively targets a wide range of stains from cosmetics and food to body soils, and both the detergent and softener have been reformulated to improve whiteness and help reclaim discolored linen. The chemistry also provides the softness and pleasant fragrance guests expect.

The solid chemistry is formulated to provide sustainability and employee safety benefits. The lightweight capsules are easy to use and store, reducing physical strain for the laundry staff while reducing packaging waste by up to 74 percent*. In addition, the closed-looped dispensing system and the color- and shape-coded capsules provide a safe dispensing solution for employees.

The new Aquanomic 2.0 Low-Temp Solid Laundry Program also can deliver water savings of up to 40 percent and energy savings of up to 50 percent. When paired with Ecolab’s StainBlaster™ solution, hotels can reduce linen replacement by 20 percent or more and realize up to $9,500 in total annual savings**.

Through the Aquanomic 2.0 Low-Temp Solid Laundry Program, hotels can tap Ecolab’s industry-leading laundry expertise, delivered by our representatives on-site to address the unique operational challenges of our customers. The program offers insights into water and energy use over time, load counts to help optimize efficiency and an out-of-product alarm to notify staff if attention is needed. These actionable insights help to streamline operations by improving productivity and translate into tangible savings.

“The Aquanomic 2.0 Low-Temp Solid Laundry Program delivers against the most difficult laundry challenges and simplifies operations. The safe, easy-to-use solid chemistry is designed to provide longer-lasting whiteness, reduces rewash which results in significant labor savings, and decreases water and energy use,” added Mamer Lloyd. “Together with our on-site training and industry-leading service, this program is truly one-of-a-kind.”
