New Product Eliminates Trash-Room Odors

Prolitec's Air/Q Trash Odor Control Uses Patented Micro-Droplet Technology to Cancel Malodors

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2013) - Foul odors from indoor trash rooms often leach into common areas offending tenants, residents or customers. Prolitec, Inc., a leading developer of scenting and air-care technologies under the Air/Q Atmospheres brand, has launched a clean, convenient and consistent solution to the problem.

The new product -- Air/Q Trash Odor Control -- uses patented technology to stop malodors from leaching into common areas at apartment and office complexes, nursing homes, assisted living communities, hospitals, restaurants, malls, grocery stores, hotels, gaming facilities, cruise ships, theaters and other buildings that make use of indoor trash rooms and chutes.

Current options for eliminating trash odors, such as aerosol-based systems, attempt to drown malodors with fragrances, effectively adding another smell into the mix with unpredictable consequences. "This can make the smell worse and actually compound the problem," noted Richard Weening, CEO. "Rather than masking malodors, Air/Q Trash Odor Control neutralizes them with a low concentration of a pleasant scent. The effect is to actually cancel the malodor."

Air/Q Trash Odor Control's scent is delivered in ultra-light droplets that float freely to every part of an enclosed space, providing uniform coverage as well as intensity. Dispersed from wall- or ceiling-mounted appliances, the fresh, clean scents come in "Sparkling Lime" and "Grapefruit Fresh." The fully programmable system's on-board computers give users the ability to adjust the intensity of the scent effect to meet their specific needs.

"Conventional, aerosol-based products tend to be messy, inefficient and time-consuming by comparison," said Roger Bensinger, Executive Vice President of Business Development. "For example, users often must fill dispensers themselves by mixing liquid solutions into large containers. With our system, certified technicians handle all installation and maintenance. No additional manpower is required from facility personnel."
