Wecoline Full Cycle® pads by Americo, certified by Green Seal™
Wecoline Full Cycle® pads by Americo are certified by Green Seal™ for Environmental Innovation based on faster biodegradation in landfill conditions and 100% recycled content/natural fiber (GreenSeal.org/GS20).
Being good stewards of the environment is simply our corporate responsibility and it’s what sets us apart from other suppliers.
- Accelerated biodegradation
- Excellent cleaning properties
- Solution for every type of dirt and floor
Like other products, floor pads have evolved with the green movement over the last decade. The fibers in Americo Full Cycle® floor pads are made using 100% recycled PET plasctic primary from soda and water bottles.
By using recycled plastic for Full Cycle® floor pads, Americo is diverting millions of plastic bottles from landfills every year.
These Full Cycle® pads are also formulated to biodegrade at a faster rate than it takes for conventional pads, which reduces the amount of waste in landfills over a period of time*. This significantly shorter time frame allows landfills that have methane-to-energy collection systems in place to capture landfill gas and convert it to energy.
Wecoline Full Cycle® pads by Americo does not leave any toxic substances or residues in the environment. Byproducts created during the enchanced biodegradation are methane (which can be converted into enery), carbon dioxide and inert humus (enriches the soil).
Testing* shows 92,5% biodegration of Wecoline's Full Cycle® pads by Americo in 616 days as compared to only 16,4% on standard floor pads.
*ASTM D5511 testing simulates anaerobic environments. Actual biodegradation will vary depending on actual environments in individual landfills.
Photos of floor pad samples, taken within 616 days of ASTM D5511 testing, confirm the high level of biodegradation of these Full Cycle® floor pads. Sample A is a standard floor pad, Sample B is a Full Cycle® pad and demonstrates the drastic mass reduction possible by biodegradation in landfill conditions.
