GOJO Advances Sustainable Packaging and Delivery With New ADX Dispensing System

AKRON, OH--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - GOJO Industries, Inc., has released its new GOJO ADX™ Dispensing System, engineered for reliability and easy servicing with features that raise the bar for sustainable packaging and delivery systems in business and institutional hand hygiene.

Designed to promote human well-being and reduce environmental impacts, the ADX Dispensing System is the result of four years of development. The ADX system dispenses GOJO and PURELL® sustainable formulations, including a complete line of new USDA Biobased and EcoLogo™ certified formulations in sustainable packaging.

"The ADX Dispensing System is a more sustainable delivery system, another step in advancing sustainable skincare innovation while setting new standards for performance and sensory appeal," said Nicole Koharik, global sustainability senior marketing manager. "ADX systems feature oversized sight windows, clear refill bottles made from easily recyclable material, and colorful formulations that make it easy to check product levels."

The ADX system is available in the high-capacity ADX-12™ (1250 ml) and the small-footprint ADX-7™ (700 ml) for compact spaces, both fully ADA compliant. The sustainable packaging includes GOJO SANITARY SEALED™ refills made with GOJO SMART-FLEX™ technology including recyclable PET using 30% less material than HDPE bottles. Sustainable packaging design features refills with removable pumps to facilitate recycling.

Product life cycle analyses reveal outcomes consistent with sustainable packaging objectives, said Courtney Cooper, GOJO product systems manager.

"Analysis shows that if one-third of all schools in the U.S. placed the GOJO ADX system, we would realize energy savings that could heat 3,473 homes. The carbon emission reduction would be the equivalent of taking 5,518 cars off the roads," Cooper said.
