Being Sustainable with cost-effective Water Saving Solutions

Organica Biotech Pvt. Ltd., in its endeavor, to contribute to the well-being of our planet; equipped with its in-house team of scientists, has developed solutions that solve day-to-day problems by using products that are sustainable across different verticals, be it wastewater effluent treatment, sanitation, agriculture, aquaculture, and hygiene solutions.

In its pursuit of developing breakthrough technologies, OB Care Professional Hygiene Solutions have been conceptualized to promote the health & safety of employees and protect fixtures & property whilst being 100% environment friendly.

The Case:
A reputed commercial bank, as part of its corporate policy of Sustainable Programme that included “Saving Water” implemented a series of initiatives to meet its objective.

The team identified all areas where water was being used and implemented several techniques to consume less water. It started with changing the nozzles of all taps, which would in turn dispense less water, thereby reducing consumption. To further reduce undue wastage, infrared sensor taps were installed in all wash basins.

The other area of major water consumption was in the male washroom urinals. The team installed waterless urinals with a cartridge system to save water in these urinals. All the initiatives taken helped curtail water consumption.

However, as time passed, the waterless urinals started emitting a foul odor. To combat foul odor, they installed air freshener dispensers, used aerosol sprays, and washroom air fresheners; within and outside the washrooms. Many fragrances were introduced to get rid of odor, but they also increased their expenses and caused indoor pollution due to harmful VOCs being emitted by these fragrances. They also realized that the urinal drain lines were getting clogged due to uric acid deposit build-up in the pipelines. This normally happens when using cartridge-based waterless urinals, leading to the urinal residue remaining in pipelines due to the absence of water.

OB Care channel partner was approached to resolve this, and he advised them to implement OB Care Water Saving Solutions to help solve the problems they were facing.

The Solution:
OB Care team inspected the washrooms and also understood the existing cleaning SOP and the waterless mechanisms. The bank was advised to implement OB Care FlushFree™ Urinal Care Program. OB Care Water Saving Solutions comprises FlushFree™ Urinal Spray and Urinal Drain Cleaner, which are the main products, and Washroom Cleaner & Odour Eliminator and Toilet Bowl Cleaner as supportive products.

OB Care FlushFree™ Urinal Care Program is designed to convert any urinal into waterless without the need to engage in expensive hardware changes.

Our FlushFree technology is carefully designed to neutralize urine residue using a scientific concoction of plant-derived medicinal oils and highly effective enzymes that break down urine residue at all the sites of accumulation, thereby eliminating odor at its source. Our proprietary plant-derived surfactant blend ensures 99.9% germ removal and 24×7 maintenance of hygiene.

As a pilot, they tried our products in a single washroom having 6 urinals, for 15 days. Our team continued to visit the bank to ensure that the SOP was followed as per norms.

After about 6 -7 days, clogging issues were solved. Also, the odor emanating from the drains stopped, and they were not required to use fragrances to control the odor. They were happy and satisfied as the problem was solved.

The Result:
Our FlushFree™ Urinal Care Program has enabled cost reduction by avoiding the expensive infrastructure of waterless urinals that are hard to maintain and have failed to solve odor problem and clogging issues; thus, enabling a pleasant washroom experience that is tackled without the use of harsh chemicals from air fresheners.

After the pilot of 15 days, we handed over all the remaining washrooms to implement the same program.

In Conclusion:
OB Care is natural & safe for a greener environment. Certified by ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, Tested by NABL Accredited Lab, DSIR Approved In-House R&D, GMP Certified.

We have successfully implemented our Water Saving Solutions in corporate offices, malls, banquets, schools, and colleges.
