One of the fastest growing concerns in today’s world is climate change. As such, people are becoming more and more aware of their impact on our environment, seeking greener ways to complete tasks. Scrub Zero is happy to say that dry ice blasting is an excellent, environmentally- friendly choice for your business.
Dry ice blasting gets you the same clean result without the need for any toxic cleaning agents. The pellets themselves do not release any harmful gases into the atmosphere, and can be safely used on most surfaces. This is especially important if you’re looking to clean equipment that operates on or around food, where the risk of a human ingesting a toxic chemical is high.
Carbon dioxide, or CO2 often gets a bad reputation due to its role in climate change. However, it is important to remember that CO2 is a crucial component to our atmosphere. It naturally makes up around 1% of the air we breathe, and plants rely on it in order to produce their food. Excess carbon dioxide produced through industrial processes can be used in the creation of dry ice pellets. As such, dry ice blasting does not introduce new carbon into the atmosphere, and is environmentally much more sustainable than other cleaning methods.
Secondary waste is the resulting waste created by a cleaning agent when it is used on a dirty surface. Water blasting, for example, can potentially dissolve harmful substances, leaving a secondary waste that then needs to be cleaned and dealt with separately. Dry ice blasting eliminates this, as the pellets simply dissipate into the atmosphere after they have been used. Less secondary waste means there is no need to dump more harmful chemicals into landfills, and stops them from contaminating water supplies.
Taking proper care of our environment today ensures that it remains healthy tomorrow. We can start by making greener choices in our daily lives, such as looking into dry ice blasting when you’re looking to clean equipment or remove mould infestations.
