ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

At Transchem Group, an important aspect of how we run our business is being intentional about our influence on the communities that we operate in. Just as we want our customers’ businesses to thrive with our solutions long into the future, we also care about preserving and protecting our natural resources for generations to come. This means that throughout our products and innovations, it is always critical for our team to prioritize reducing our environmental impact and discovering greener ways to operate.

Amongst our environmental efforts, Transchem Group has also helped establish the guidelines for the Canadian government’s EcoLogo Certification Criteria Document for Commercial Car Wash Services. We are also proud to be one of the only companies in the automotive care industry with Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification (2013 0115) manufacturing capabilities, one of the most stringent regulations in any industry.

In 2022, Transchem Group partnered with a major car wash operator in the Southeastern United States to make a donation to Sea Turtle conservation.

CLEAN INGREDIENTS FOR GREEN RESULTS

Along with many car washes and commercial industries, we care about what is going down the sewer and into local water reservoirs.

When you use our chemicals, you can be confident that our formulas don’t use substances like:

Harmful phosphates
Ammonium Bifluoride (ABF)
Hydrofluoric acid (HF)

We are meticulous in selecting ingredients that meet environmental regulations and formulations to meet all municipal, provincial/state and federal sewer-use by-laws. Maintaining this standard of environmental commitment while operating in an industry where many manufacturers still use aggressive acids and phosphates is a major aspect of why we have a dedicated R&D facility and car wash at our headquarters.

ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE

We design our formulations with care to follow environmental standards and meet municipal, provincial/state and federal regulations for car wash chemistry.

In Europe, we work only with raw material suppliers that have surfactants listed on Cleangredients or meet the requirements of the European Detergent Directive or exceed the biodegradability requirements of EcoLogo™ Certification Criteria Document for UL-2770: Commercial Car Wash Services.

Transchem Group also blends Nordic Swan approved products for Sweden and Norway. and our EMEA line of TWP products adheres to the Nordic Swan standards and regulations.

Finally, Transchem is complaint in the EU with the REACH program.

We know there are further advancements to be made, and are passionate about finding them.
