SAFER CHOICE AWARD: ChemFree Corporation’s SW-4 Heavy Duty OzzyJuice®Degreasing Solution has been awarded the coveted Safer Choice seal of approval.
The Safer Choice Program, formerly known as the Design for the Environment (DfE) Safer Product Labeling Program, awarded ChemFree Corporation’s proprietary SW-4 Heavy Duty OzzyJuice® Degreasing Solution their seal of approval. This prestigious program was developed to evaluate the environmental and human health impacts of every chemical ingredient in a product, allowing only the safest ingredients in labeled products. As a partnership program, Safer Choice brings interested parties together to advance sustainability in chemical products.
The EPA’s Safer Choice Program focuses on chemistry and identifying safer chemicals and evaluates the human health and environmental characteristics of chemicals. When the Safer Choice label appears on a product, it means that EPA has screened each ingredient in the product for potential human health and environmental effects and that–based on hazard and risk information, the latest models and predictive tools, and expert scientific judgment–the product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class. Third party profilers compile all hazard information available on each chemical and include detailed structure, physical-chemical properties, human health and environmental toxicology, and regulatory/administrative status. These profiles are reviewed by EPA scientists and experts to determine whether or not the product meets the Safer Choice Standard. ChemFree’s SW-4 Heavy Duty Degreasing Solution met these rigorous standards and now proudly displays the Safer Choice label.
ChemFree Corporation, founded in 1993 and acquired by CRC Industries in 2015, is, located in Norcross, GA. Manufacturing the patented SmartWasher® Bioremediating Parts-Washing System, ChemFree Corporation provides an alternative method to cleaning vehicle and maintenance parts without harming humans or the environment. The SmartWasher® system consists of the SmartWasher® parts washer equipment, OzzyJuice® Degreasing Solutions and OzzyMat®s® which are microbe impregnated filters. The combination of these products, “the system”, allows the user to eliminate or dramatically reduce waste streams, the expense of hazardous waste removal and associated liabilities. Uniting superior performance and environmental responsibility, the ChemFree product line is sold in more than 40 countries worldwide.
“More than ever, organizations are looking for innovative products that allow them to operate efficiently but also merge environmental responsibility with cost effectiveness, safety, durability of equipment, and sustainability.” said Tom McNally, ChemFree’s Vice President.
“EPA/Safer Choice recognition does not constitute endorsement of these products. The Safer Choice logo signifies that the products’ formulas, as ChemFree Corporation has represented it to the EPA, contain ingredients with more positive human health and environmental characteristics than conventional products of the same type. EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on ChemFree Corporation’s integrity and good faith, for information on the products’ composition, ingredients and attributes. EPA/Safer Choice has not independently identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the products’ formula, nor evaluated any of ChemFree Corporation’s non-ingredient claims. EPA/Safer Choice provides its evaluation only as to the products’ human health and environmental characteristics, as specified in the Standard and based on currently available information and scientific understanding.”
