EPA RECOGNIZES EMS AND MARINE CARE FOR GREENCARE LINE OF INDUSTRIAL MARINE CLEANERS

Melbourne, FL – (July 13, 2010) The Design for Environment (“DfE”) program run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced GreenCare as the first line of industrial marine products to earn DfE certification. (visit epa.gov/dfe)

Powered by EMS’ patented synthetic acid and caustic replacements SynTech and SynClean, GreenCare products each carry a triple-zero HMIS score. GreenCare products include tank and hold cleaners, degreasers and descalers and specialty products for cruise lines. GreenCare is manufactured by EMS exclusively for MarineCare and is offered through a growing number of their locations worldwide.

“We are proud to work with EMS to bring these exciting products to the global marine market,” said Michael de Ruiter, MarineCare CEO. “GreenCare provides our customers with products of unmatched safety and power, enabling them to embrace environmental requirements and worker safety issues that continue to arise in our industry,” concluded de Ruiter.

EPA’s Design for the Environment (“DfE”) program seeks to promote the use of products with improved environmental and human health characteristics. Products recognized by the DfE must pass rigorous safety and environmental tests, as well as be proven to function as purported on each product’s label.
“EMS technology has been used for years by the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard to safely descale, degrease and clean tanks, lines, equipment and surfaces,” said John MacDonald, President of EMS. “It’s always rewarding to find companies like MarineCare that are willing to discover green and effective alternatives to dangerous chemicals. EMS is certain of the benefit our technology will provide the global cruise and merchant marine market and are pleased to be working with a partner with the global reach of MarineCare.”
