The wash chemicals supplied by AUWA are developed and produced in the WashTec laboratories in Augsburg and Grebenau (Germany) in close cooperation with our development department.
We always keep in mind sustainable use of available resources in the manufacture of AUWA products. Therefore whilst meeting our customers’ requirements we nevertheless use as few unnecessary raw materials: colorants, fragrances, emulsifiers etc. as possible. All wash chemicals are concentrated. They are automatically diluted and dispensed inside the wash system. This reduces weight and packaging and so keeps transport costs to a minimum.
We use high-quality ingredients in highly concentrated and optimized products so that the amount of chemicals in each wash is also kept to a minimum. The use of concentrated detergents reduces consumption and associated transport costs and emissions are also reduced by 30 to 70%, depending on the product.
Quality before quantity
“Quality before quantity” is the motto in the manufacturing and development of all AUWA products. This means it is always preferable to use a smaller, optimized quantity of a high-quality raw material or an improved recipe than a high quantity of a standard material. No toxic ingredients are used in the manufacture of AUWA products. If a material is rated as “environmentally hazardous” it is no longer used or it is replaced by a safe material. We also check whether label-free materials can be used in place of materials which require labels (i.e. potentially harmful).
