After the success of Interclean Amsterdam fair in 2018, finally this year the next edition has taken place. It was held from May 10-13 at
the RAI Amsterdam fairgrounds. The leading fair for professionals in the cleaning and hygiene sector was a complete success. This edition featured more than 35,000 professionals from the sector from more than 143 countries and more than 900 manufacturers.
ASFEL, the Association of Spanish Manufacturers of Cleaning and Hygiene Products, coordinated the participation of Spanish companies in this event, which is part of ASFEL 2022 Sector Promotion Plan. Its objective is to strengthen the Spanish presence in international markets. As members of this association, we participated in the fair.
Our stand was the 03.111. This was the perfect opportunity to share our innovations in this great European showcase. In addition, we were able to show visitors our new image and corporate colors.
We participated in the Amsterdam Innovation Award organized by the fair, our category was Sustainability and Environment.
Without a doubt, we have had a great response this year and it has been the perfect opportunity to create synergies with other companies in the sector. The stand reflected our main goals: sustainability and innovation.
At Interclean Amsterdam we were able to present our products: H-ion, an antimicrobial booster for detergent products and Protect Clothes, a direct use protective spray. In addition, we showcased examples of products manufactured with our active substance: detergents, fabric softeners, detergent capsules, etc.
NOB166 guarantees an antimicrobial property for a minimum of 7 days, certified by UNE-EN ISO 20743, which determines the antibacterial activity of textile products. With our products we avoid cross-contamination, the process by which microorganisms are transferred from one substance or object to another with harmful effects.
Sustainability was a key point at Interclean. We were able to reflect our commitment to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. Our products have certificates that guarantee their prolonged action, which is why there is a decrease in the release of chemical products into the atmosphere.
Our main objective is to minimize the adverse effects that these produce on human health and the environment. In this article you can read more information about the SDGs.
The Healthcare Cleaning Forum took place at Interclean Amsterdam, which focused on cleaning in the healthcare sector and infection prevention. These two concepts are fundamental for us, as with our products we prevent the feared nosocomial infections. These are acquired during a patient’s stay in the hospital.
Therefore, they are infected after the hospital/healthcare center admission. They lead to an extended hospital stay, as well as great additional costs for the health systems, patients, families, insurers and private health. But the most shocking fact is the number of deaths it causes.
In this event, the practices and scientific research on how cleaning can have an impact on the prevention and control of infections in health centers were analyzed.
The ecological footprint is a concept that we wanted to convey at Interclean Amsterdam, since consumption habits have a great environmental impact that we do not see with the naked eye. Our products are harmless to the environment. When NOB166® formula comes into contact with water, it adheres to textile surfaces, because it is not soluble in water.
NOB166® is based on natural silver, an element typically present in nature in the form of a salt and therefore fully recyclable. Our production methods advocate for the present and future sustainability of the planet. Thanks to the sustainable footprint, many waste produced by human beings could be avoided.
Without a doubt, we have had a great response at Interclean Amsterdam 2022, we are delighted to have met specialists from the sector. It has been a very productive experience for the entire NOB166 team. Thank you all for your interest in our products!
