About Bio-Eco®

Bio-Eco® products were developed as an environmentally friendly alternative for a wide variety of purposes: for cleaning, impregnation respectively surface protection

eco-friendly

Bio-Eco® products are perfectly suited as  eco friendly alternatives, especially when there is a desire to reduce the use of fossil fuels and thus synthetically manufactured products. All Bio-Eco® products are in nature biodegradable.

​Bio-Eco® liquid products are modified cellulose, developed by recycling of forest waste materials. Instead of burning the forest waste materials, the recycling reduces the CO2 (carbon dioxide) impact on the environment. There are many product applications available concerning Bio-Eco® liquid products of which cleaning and impregnation products dominates. They are all complete outstanding in competition to other similar application products.

 

Since cellulose does not dissolve in water, makes it useful in a number of applications. Applied as a surface protection top coating layer on concrete, will strongly reduce the risk that frozen water bursting concrete. Treatment of natural fibre materials to withstand fire attacks, but also mould, fungus and rot, are other product applications of highest market interest.

 

Bio-Eco® powder products represent another complete outstanding family of cost-efficient products, without any classified hazardous chemicals, in nature biodegradable fire/flame retardant/suppressant/ products, developed on low carbon sustainability innovation technology. Patents have been granted throughout the world.

 

Most fire/flame retardants/suppressants in use today contain many harmful chemicals that migrate from the treated host material, polluting the environment - ground water and soil. Upon combustion these harmful chemicals release toxic gases that might kill or cause severe respiratory injuries to humans. These chemicals will frequently have a negative impact on human genes, which will affect future generations.

 

This is NOT the case with "Bio-Eco® powder products" which family of fire retardants /fire supressants/ only contain food grade chemicals (in approved quantities and concentrations) of a type found in daily foodstuffs, e.g., grapes, fruit and bread. The powder products are developed by chemical reactions between weak organic acids and in-organic alkali hydroxides - organic salt with adjustable pH - which have been consumed by humans during thousands of years, without any negative impact on health or environment.

There are only 3 known "methods" to stop a fire from being spread.

The methods are:

  • by extinguishing

  • by cooling

  • by moving away the material that is on fire (if possible)

 

EXTINGUISHING and/or COOLING are the most frequently applied methods. EXTINGUISHING often takes place in gas phase by applying Halogens. Halogens are very effective but hazardous to human health. Intumescents are another applied extinguishing method. It takes place before the gas phase. Intumescent means a substance which swells as a result of heat exposure, thus increasing in volume, and decreasing in density. Intumescents are typically used in passive fire protection.

An intumescent consists of:

  • a proton donator

  • volatile cat ions

  • a non-flammable gas

  • a carbon source

 

The choice of suitable chemicals for the intumescent primarily depends on the host material decomposition residues that shall be caught by the intumescent. COOLING is an endothermic process that absorb heat energy. Water has the lowest known thermal energy potential. That makes water to a terrific thermal energy cooling agent. Salt is another chemical compound with a low thermal energy potential. Salt is a chemical reaction between an acid and an alkali compound. Different chemical compounds have different thermal energy potential. Chemical reactions during decomposition that create water is often used as a cooling agent.
