Robert Scott launches Toucan Eco Auto

Robert Scott’s Toucan Eco Auto elevates sustainable cleaning to new heights

Robert Scott has launched Toucan Eco Auto, the latest innovation in its ground-breaking Toucan Eco range.

The revolutionary bio-cleaning system marks a significant leap forward in sustainable commercial cleaning, offering a robust solution for operators of medium to large facilities aiming to reduce their chemical use and environmental footprint.

Toucan Eco Auto is an automated disinfectant generator, capable of producing 20L of multipurpose disinfectant cleaner in just 30 minutes using just salt and water.

Designed for direct dispensing into containers for comprehensive surface cleaning, the fully automatic system simplifies operations by requiring only the periodic refilling of salt as indicated by its LED display.

This innovation not only enhances the efficiency of cleaning regimes while saving money, but also helps companies to reduce their carbon footprint by eliminating the need for up to 80% of conventional cleaning chemicals, as well as their associated single-use plastic bottles, packaging and manufacturing and transportation emissions.

An independent carbon footprint audit has indicated that producing 1L of ready-to-use solution with Toucan Eco Auto generates the equivalent of just 3.07g CO2. To put this into context, this means that 5L of activated solution can be created with the system for the same carbon emissions as one boiled kettle.

Steve Courtney, Product Lead for Toucan Eco at Robert Scott, stated: “The Toucan Eco range is at the forefront of sustainable commercial cleaning innovation. With the introduction of Toucan Eco Auto, we’re catering to the demands of busier environments where quick, effective and environmentally conscious cleaning solutions are paramount. This addition to the range highlights our commitment to providing versatile and sustainable cleaning solutions across various sectors.”

The British-made system uses a specialised electrolysis cell to activate a mixture of salt and water with a small electrical current, producing a powerful combination of hypochlorous acid (an effective disinfectant) and sodium hypochlorite (a cleaning agent). The result is a potent yet naturally occurring disinfectant cleaner that is non-toxic, hypoallergenic, environmentally friendly and effective against a broad spectrum of germs with an efficacy rate of up to 99.999%.

Certified to EN 14476, EN 16777, EN 1276 and EN 13697 standards, and registered as a UK biocide, the cleaning solution boasts a pH level of approximately 7.8-8.5, making it gentle yet effective without the need for protective clothing or PPE.

Despite its substantial output capacity, the Toucan Eco Auto boasts a compact design, making it an ideal addition to various commercial settings. Measuring 48x25x65 cm and weighing 25kg, it offers an unobtrusive, powerful and sustainable cleaning solution.
