The Cleaning Industry Research Institute International (CIRI) has announced its science and technology symposium ‘Save the Dates – The Science and Efficacy of Antimicrobials, Disinfectants and Their Impact on Cleaning Technologies’ – to be held from November 9-11. The focus will be on profusion and confusion over new and different types of disinfectants, sanitizers and antimicrobials. The event would also focus on the innovations in cleaning science and disinfection; federal regulations; how newer technologies are influencing the contract cleaning business; and the aspects of cleaning technology that involve non-chemical, physical and chemical-free disinfection. CIRI symposiums would cover on scientific clarity, truth, reliable documentation, data and analytical research on cleaning & health.
The programme will attempt to answer questions such as:
• What are “green disinfectants” and can they be promoted?
• Are there means to reduce microbial contamination with wipes, squeegees and just cleaning?
• Which disinfection methods are reduced-chemical or chemical-free and how do they perform?
• What antimicrobial technologies work faster and better?
• Which are best for routine cleaning and use in higher risk environments, such as hospitals and health care facilities?
• Whose claims and labeling of disinfectant cleaners, sanitizers and antimicrobials are reliable?
