About Activeion

LookupPage has been an early observer of this young industry, and we're proud of it. But the area has become too active, and our staff is too small, to be able to justify the resources it would take to cover it. So we'll point you to some outside sources.


The cleaning technology was first significantly noticed by R&D Magazine, which named it one of the most significant inventions of 2008. For more detail on the cleaning technology, visit the Tennant site itself (www.tennantco.com), or the site of Tennant's licensing arm - Orbio Technologies (www.orbiotechnologies.com). Tennant is expected to sell around $140M of the ECH2O equipped machines in 2011.


Tennant cooperated in creating Activeion (www.activeion.com) to commercialize a hand held version of the same technology, for cleaning non-floor surfaces, like countertops. Tennant calls the cleaning technology ECH2O, even though Activeion does not. But it's the same cleaning technology, and the companies cross-license with each other.


Activeion, however, added a second technology to its hand held sprayer, in order to kill germs at a high rate of kill. Called electroporation, and long used in biomedical research, it is essentially a high voltage, low current charge, which kills germs, though humans and pets cannot feel anything but water.

Most recently, the Fortune 500 facilities service provider Aramark launched its Blue Cleaning program within its Higher Education division.


Senator Lautenberg’s proposed Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 has spawned Chemical Free TV (www.chemicalfree.tv), which covers this emerging industry in far more detail than we at LookupPage ever could.
