How does eWater stack up?

A recent listeria outbreak affecting Australia’s rockmelon industry has called into question the practices used to disinfect and sanitise our fresh produce. Find out how eWater stacks up and compares against the typical go to chemicals for cleaning and sanitising in the market.

eWater: A solution to the listeria outbreak

A recent outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes (listeria), connected to rockmelon originating from a farm in NSW, has shown that there is a need for more effective treatment of bacteria on fruit and vegetables.

Listeriosis is of grave concern to the community and can be fatal, particularly to the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

Electrolysed water has been demonstrated to be not only an effective sanitiser, particularly in regards to listeria, but its efficacy over other commercial sanitisers. eWater Systems has published a special report on the matter.

Cleaning products as damaging as cigarettes?

Regular use of cleaning products has been found to be comparable to 10-20 pack years of tobacco smoking.

According to a new study at the University of Bergen in Norway, regular exposure to cleaning products can be as harmful as a daily cigarette habit.

“When you think of inhaling small particles from cleaning agents that are meant for cleaning the floor and not your lungs, maybe it is not so surprising after all,” says lead author Øistein Svanes.

eWater Submission to Government Initiative

The Victorian Government is looking for community input on the reduction of plastic pollution. With these initatives also comes the opportunity for Victoria to lead in reducing our chemical footprint.

eWater proposed that the government make the reduction of chemicals a priority. This in turn will reduce plastic, pollution and carbon impacts. Using the technology of eWater Systems, there is no longer need for harmful chemicals for cleaning and sanitising. We hope to show policy makers that there is a more sustainable way to clean up our planet.
