GREENGUARD Environmental Institute is now certifying cleaners and cleaning systems for low chemical emissions, the Institute said.

Working with JohnsonDiversey, GEI’s program for testing and certifying cleaning products is based on a new standard that identifies a more comprehensive target list of volatile organic compounds, lowers the limits for the emissions of those VOCs and measures at both short-term and long-term exposure levels.

“The new cleaning standard is the first that requires a review of measured chemical emissions across a broader range of risk based on exposure levels and integrates them into a single standard,” GEI CEO Carl Smith said.
