Prioritizing Sustainability: Our Commitment to the Environment

This week, we attended Interclean 2024 at RAI Amsterdam, engaging with suppliers on future products and sustainability strategies for our markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

Our goal is to reduce chemical use and introduce eco-friendly nonwoven wipes to the industry.

At Interclean, we discussed the following:

  • Reusable polyester fibers for our microfiber range
  • Biodegradable wipes for surface preparation and treatment
  • Wipes made from 100% natural fibers like Lyocell/Rayon/viscose, extensively used in our IPS SatWipes Portfolio

Together, we’re shaping a greener future.

IPS-Group supports Sport ‘n’ Charity’s important work helping children with cancer.

Every year, more than 600 Danish children are being treated for cancer. Fortunately, 6 out of 7 children survive, but more than 50% of the surviving children experience disabilities following their illness.

Based on research, Sport ‘n’ Charity has developed an online training portal and assembled a training bag, which makes it possible for children with cancer to train anywhere – at home or during hospitalization.

Cleaning and Disinfection Tutorial from Etihad Airways

This video is a tutorial shown by Etihad Airways, on how they clean and disinfect their Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Abu Dhabi.

The cleaning starts from the rear to the front, and top to bottom using disinfecting agents and our Sontara MC Battleship Grey wipes. Etihad Cleaning manager Anthony Foreman explains how the airline handles the cleaning and disinfecting after flying to high risk areas.

Etihad COVID-19 Travel Updates

Many travellers have raised concerns about the risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus while travelling on flights.

To minimise risk, significant measures have been implemented prior to departure, in flight and after arrival.

In addition to restrictions on travel, many countries have introduced screening of departing passengers to prevent boarding by those who are suspected of infection.

In flight, modern aircraft including the entire Etihad Airways fleet are equipped with cabin air filtration systems of similar quality to those used in hospital operating theatres.

In any confined area, there is a risk of contracting illnesses from other people.

However, the risk is considered lower on aircraft because of the use of high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, which are effective in capturing more than 99 per cent of airborne microbes in filtered air.

As well, cabin air flow is continuous, and delivered at a rate equivalent to up to 30 changes per hour.

As a matter of course, Etihad undertakes detailed cleaning of its aircraft on arrival at each destination, a practice which was already in place prior to the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.

In addition to washrooms, galleys and other areas of the aircraft, Etihad also cleans all passenger touchpoints including seats, armrests, tray tables, video screens and control units, windows and window shades, walls, overhead lockers and locker doors.

When aircrafts arrive in Abu Dhabi, Etihad uses our Sontara® MC in Battleship Grey wipes to clean the aircrafts, as seen in the video above.
